Given the above, and given that it's a media server, and given that LM 18.x is supported until sometime in 2021, perhaps another consideration is that the "easiest way" you seek is already deployed. :)

Re: How to verify the ISO image on Windows?

If you have Windows 8 or later, from the command line...

Code: Select all

CertUtil -hashfile FileNameThatYouWantToCheck.iso SHA256
...which will return the SHA256 hash value of the ISO.

EDIT: Alternatively, this page details Windows software that you can use as well.

Not to dissuade you from making this part of your startup, you can always use the up/down arrow keys in the terminal window to scroll through your command history. :)

Or go ahead with other updates but not the one which affects Virtual Box and causes the login glitch. Precisely which update is that? As of yesterday (2018-03-26) update man...

Re: What to do if you can't login to Linux Mint 18.x

For clarity, are you having the system timeout to a lock screen? Or does it timeout to a suspend/hibernate of the session?
