Re: How to solve a silly mistake .... (nVidia driver)

Spinner912, From what I understand you can't boot to the 64Bit Mint 18.2 even in recovery mode. What you will have to do is boot to the 64Bit Mint 18.2 installation media then chroot to your installed system to remove the nvidia driver. Or since this is a fairly new installation, just reinstall the ...

Re: Linux mint

I used to run hardcore distros like Sabayon, Gentoo and Funtoo, While all good distros they were difficult to maintain as they needed constant attention and configuring. Mint installs and configures itself in about 10 minutes and launches right out-of-the-box - no need for manual intervention. It's ...

Re: 2 Western Digital Hard Drives (External USB 2.0), 1 very slow

Powered by USB and no option to plug in a power cord to it. But I did notice, the firmware update didn't take, so I've got to reattach it to a Windows PC and try again. I should have asked about the 4TB too. Is that ac adapter powered :?: I recall reading somewhere that externals drawing power from...

Re: 2 Western Digital Hard Drives (External USB 2.0), 1 very slow

The disk is in good shape so I'm kinda stumped here as to what could be causing the slow transfer.

Is the 1TB Passport powered via the usb port or does it have a ac plug adapter ?
