Re: My computer's time-of-day isn't accurate, how to fix?

Every motherboard has a small round battery for time keeping. Sounds like you need a new one. Open it up and check what battery you need and replace it.

Xorg.O Log : auth.log : dpkg.log : the empty mail log since running them commands and syslog. I'm sure on linux mint mate I had more ca...

Re: A few questions about Linux/Mint Cinnamon

Linux hardly experiences any pollution. So cleaning is superfluous. Should you wish to clean up a bit anyway, then this Is a safe way....https://sites.google.com/site/easylinux ... ject/clean and also there Is no need for defrag in Linux. Linux Isnt windows.

Re: Mint 12 final on the mirror!!!

For those wondering why no Blog announcement has been made yet, it's simple. Clem knows that the mirrors will be flooded when the announcement is posted. So, he gives a day or two for the early adopters to download, then makes the announcement. It sort of spreads the bandwidth out a little. Thanks ...
