Re: Update Manager not showing 2.17 kernel in list of kernels

Yep - limited success with my limited python knowledge - I can display all unsigned kernels (including the 4.15 ones) or none at all. It doesn't look pretty.... :roll: I might come back to this if I decide I need a challenge and the issue hasn't been properly patched already. it wasn't on my to do ...

Can I Recover Data from an Accidental Creation of a New GPT Table

I intended to work on an empty partition on the first part of /sda and somehow initiated a new GPT Table on top of an EFI system.

Re: How to update your BIOS Dell with Linux Mint [part -1]

Would it not work to simply copy the BIOS update .exe file to a usb stick, then re-boot to that stick and hit F12 when you see the Dell logo. It will take you to the boot option screen. On the bottom you should see the Update file from USB option. Let the computer work for you. I do not recall who p...

Re: How to block block ads, banners, 3rd party cookies, page counters, web bugs and hijackers

these type of Host File Lists are useful, but you do need to constantly update them . . other folks just use a browser add-on like No Script to do the job. & there is nothing wrong with the "belt & braces" approach, either. 8) That be me... belt & braces.

Thanks, catweazel.

I've often wondered how it worked in Linux.
Do we need to do anything with the other Host files?

Re: Can I delete the default network manager that came with Mint?

The package manager is better for installing and removing applications. You do not have to uninstall it. It might be better to simply disable it. I disabled nm = network manager, but there were times I had to re-enable it. Refer to the commands I first listed. sudo stop network-manager echo "manual"...
