Re: Max number of CPUs/cores supported by Mint?

Crikey! Indeed! dan@skynet1 ~ $ grep CONFIG_NR_CPUS /boot/config-`uname -r` CONFIG_NR_CPUS=8192 dan@skynet1 ~ $ uname -r 4.10.0-27-generic Well, I suppose that means: if you have a machine with more than 512 CPU's/cores, you should definitely upgrade your kernel from 4.4.x to 4.10.x. :mrgreen:

Re: Max number of CPUs/cores supported by Mint?

The *standard* Mint and Ubuntu 4.4.x kernel indeed supports a maximum of 512 cores:

Code: Select all

pjotr@bureaucomputer ~ $ grep CONFIG_NR_CPUS /boot/config-`uname -r`
CONFIG_NR_CPUS=512


But if you need even more for your own personal supercomputing project, the sky is the limit.... :mrgreen:

For all practical purposes: an unlimited number. There's a reason why all of those supercomputers are running on Linux.... :mrgreen:

Re: Question about locations of programs in Linux Mint

i do not see why making Linux more user-friendly such as making it easy to find file locations via right click would not be favored. Yet I am just looking at the surface and do not know the foundational reasons why this may not be favorable or feasible. I fail to see what all the fuss is about. You...

Re: Sporadic System Crashes on newer kernel

I think you should reconsider your rejection of the 4.13 kernel. I see no need for low-latency, but the generic 4.13 kernel is worth a try. This is how to install the 4.13 kernel from the Canonical Kernel Team PPA, which is probably the easiest and best option if you want a kernel that has been adap...

Re: How do I remove an OS...

That's because by default, the last installed Linux always contains the dominant Grub. Boot into Mint 17.3, re-install Grub in it and the Grub relay stick should be passed to Mint 17.3 again.

Re: having trouble installing Java

Try this:

But before you install: you don't need Java for using Google Maps. Javascript: probably yes, but you already have that enabled by default in your web browsers. But not Java.
