Re: did Linux Mint 19 install trash my Dell Inspiron?

You didn't answer my question about whether <F12> produces a list of boot options. If so, what are they? In any case, If your system is unable to find and boot any operating system, either the system is faulty (possibly just misconfigured) or an OS installation was not done correctly. Is the system...

Re: Linux Mint 19: test your bare network traffic!

I think this is one thing the Mint developers need to look at, is the security of Mint. This exists, what else is there. Could be a reason to have a minimal install option. I do wonder what all these programs are that are being updated, when there are updates, do I need them, some of the stuff I don...

Re: Unable to boot into Linux Mint 19 64-Bit With EasyBCD 2.3 (Dual Boot Setup Windows 10 )

hello edjon2000,
Thank you for this thread, I am in exactly the same position as you, a dual boot with Win 7 and now LM 19 (was 18.3 and worked ok) and thank you for the information about choosing boot in bios, will have to do that for a while, hope a fix comes soon.

Re: Linux Mint 19 codenamed “Tara”

I hope this is the right place to post this, a question about Linux Mint 19. Do the developers of Mint 19 intend to include a minimal installation option similar to the upcoming Ubuntu 18.04? Sounds like this could be a good idea. What are the pros and cons of minimal installation good and bad? Star...

Re: All these Level 4 updates lately ...

you must have set Update Manager to 'Always show Security Updates'
yes mainly default values set, level 1-3 allowed also

hard to know what settings to apply, think when it is over I might set to ignore

anyway thanks for the information tonight, cheers :)
