Re: Partition Deletion

I've got almost a Terabyte of data on H:\ and really don't want to lose it. Installation aside, be sure you have a backup of that data, for all the reasons you can't think of. When installing Linux Mint from a bootable flash drive, will the installation wipe ALL partitions (C:\ & H:\) or just the p...

Re: When did you come to Linux?

Apparently I was wrong, CentOS might be an LTS Red Hat fork. CentOS is indeed based on RHEL. Not only that, a few years ago, they partnered with the Red Hat team to collaboratively develop the platform, while staying independent of Red Hat itself. EDIT: CentOS Project joins forces with Red Hat Joe

It's working. That particular sandbox session is parent pid number 6221, via your username, with firefox running. :)

Agreed. I think they had it on mainframes since the late 90s. And I remember that Linux "prodigy" ad they ran on TV in the early 2000s. :)

IBM and Canonical work together in financial services

Just because IBM owns Red Hat doesn't mean it's not working with other Linux powers such as Ubuntu Linux.

Re: Account drop down menus not working in Mint 19.2 using Firefox 69

My java script is enabled in Firefox 69. Did you confirm ? Does the Java in the PC effect Firefox drop down boxes? JavaScript and Java are two different things, similar in name only. Or secondly could it be an update fault in the software referring to screen rendering? Does this behavior exhibit it...

When i enter any accounts and try to use a drop down box menu to make a selection for payment it does not work at all. It refuses to move. Without knowing what menus you're referring to, could they be JavaScript components, and if so, could you be using a JavaScript blocking extension (or have othe...

Re: Kernel Versions Questions

Presumably 4.18 is newer than 4.15, so how can this be? I think you're assuming that all kernel versions may have the same level of support, which is not the case. I see a line of 5.0 versions, ~ 10. 9 of them say "superseded" and 1 is current. Do I have all 10 of these on my system, and if so, why...

Re: What Software R U Using for System Backups

... using a file manager, you can browse those snapshot directories and restore a single file or directory. I don't think Clonezilla can to that. Actually, you can do that with a Clonezilla archive, but it's admittedly a cumbersome process. Not knocking Clonezilla, but for a neophyte, it's not the ...
