Re: Initramfs error + zero length partition

It looks like your filesystem is corrupted. You can try an alternate superblock with e2fsck, but things don't look good. Unmount the partition with sudo umount /mnt then paste back the results of sudo mke2fs -n /dev/sda1 This will not format anything, but it will show the alternate superblock locati...

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

All retrieved package files reside in /var/cache/apt/archives/

You can clear them all using sudo apt-get clean in the terminal :wink:

Re: Moving drive/image to other system...

Thanks Warf... Placing the LM SSD in to a drive bay in the desktop had no issues, as you indicated. And boy, it is fast on the desktop. Both the LM OS and apps loaded much faster, than the Windows 10 and its apps on the same desktop. Even the 32" BENQ monitor resolution had been set correctly. That...

Do you use a firewall on your router? I can see not using firejail but I really think a firewall is a good idea. Just my opinion :wink:
Yes, I'm behind this router

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

I don't bother with fire jail or ufw and never had a problem with banking or stock trading.

If it makes you feel safer then by all means use them.

Re: I can access home folder on internal drive via live environment

Have I done something wrong during the installation of my machines? You didn't do anything wrong during the installation.

Hello Lasernet Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

That shouldn't be a problem.

I have Mint installed to a thumbdrive and it boots to an AMD processor/video card desktop and an Intel laptop with Intel processor/graphics.

Good luck :wink:

You would have had to done that from the GUI file manager.

Re: Lost my mint 19 boot menu when trying easybcd...

I don't think you will be able to boot Mint from the BIOS if grub was originally installed to /dev/sda In that case you will have to boot the live media and chroot to the Mint installation on sdc or try just mounting Mint to /mnt and running sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/mnt /dev/sda --force I...

Re: how to add storage

It's possible to retrofit a /home partition which is most likely where you would need more space.

A screenshot of gparted would be a big help.

Re: Lost Downloads folder

Did you accidentally delete it.

Does it show with find ~ -type d -iname "*Down*" :?:

If it's not there then just recreate it.
