Re: Linux Mint 17.3 on a Panasonic CF-19 Toughbook?

Fixed it! All I did was chroot into the install and run update-grub. The vaunted Boot Repair app wouldn't do that for me. "However, if there's a flashing cursor in the upper left corner, that indicates the machine's BIOS cannot detect a bootable operating system on the hard drive." This is the tip t...

Linux Mint 17.3 on a Panasonic CF-19 Toughbook?

Is there a trick to installing Mint on a CF-19 Mk1 Toughbook? I have a blank drive installed, and Mint seems to install correctly, except for hanging on the reboot after installation. Mint will not boot - I just get a blank screen. I've tried the Boot Repair utility, both from DVD {32 bot} and from ...

For burning software, Brasero has always done everything I've asked it to do. Mint 17.3 Mate.

Re: CD track ripping with Rhythmbox

This works like a charm. You can also change the encoding if you don't want to use flac.

Re: [SOLVED] Best use of external drive?

I don't trust hard drives - they're at best a convenience for temporary storage. I keep my music on my external drive, but I plan to get another external drive to store a copy of the music in a separate location. I also have all of the music archived to DVD's. Not that I don't have the source CD's a...

Re: Upgrade to Mint 9 with separate /home partition

OK, that makes sense.

Forgetting the symlinks for now, is it possible to correct my mistake without reinstalling from the DVD?

Upgrade to Mint 9 with separate /home partition

When I did an install of Isadora yesterday from the DVD (upgrading from Helena), I found that I now have a home directory on the / partition as the original on the /home partition. Of course, the desktop icon points to the new home directory, not the one on the /home partition. Can I symlink to the ...

Re: Which Desktop Version Do You Prefer? Vote Here

Based on experience, I prefer KDE and the KDE apps, but KDE drives me crazy with stability problems. I've evolved thru Redhat, Fedora, Kubuntu, and Debian (all with KDE) to Mint. I'll stick with Gnome for a while and see if it grows on me.

Re: whats the best prog for ripping audio cd's

You need an mp3 encoder - Liblame.

Kaudiocreator is also a good ripping program - I've used it for literally hundreds of CD's.
