Re: Linux Mint 18.3 crashes during boot

Boot to the live media and mount the linux partition to /mnt, use xed to edit /mnt/boot/grub/grub.cfg and change the linux line to include only debug=vc as in: linux /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.0-121-generic root=UUID=8f8906a7-1632-4e15-9a00-b17e7a875aab ro debug=vc Messages will scroll on the screen during b...

Re: find & copy commands for non-booting HDD

Mustachio,

If worse comes to worse root can copy any files so use sudo -i in the terminal to get escalated privileges.

You can reset the owner:group later with chown.

Hello Pat Image

Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :)

You would run sudo dpkg --configure -a in the terminal.


If it fails, paste back the terminal results so we can have a look.

Re: Black screen after AMD drivers' update

One thing you want to follow up on is changing the pin priority in /etc/apt/preferences.d/official-extra-repositories.pref back to 700. If the gl packages reverted back to the ubuntu repo versions then the kernel parameter nomodeset is going to inhibit direct rendering so remove that from grub.cfg t...

Re: LM No boot

If you don't even get an initial BIOS screen that indicates F10 Boot Menu F2 Setup or something similar with the computer manufacturer logo for about 2-4 seconds then it might be the MB that's fried.

Re: Editing fstab to mount partitions on a second hard drive

terry_g,

You might also consider setting the fs_passno to 2 and setting the Maximum mount count to 30 or so for periodic fsck during boot.

Re: Problem booting. I get to the grub prompt after using boot-repair and gbparted

iegarcia,

Try rebooting and using this one line at a time

Code: Select all

sudo -i
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt 
mount -t proc none /mnt/proc
mount --rbind /sys /mnt/sys
mount --rbind /dev /mnt/dev
/usr/sbin/chroot /mnt /bin/bash
source /etc/profile
echo "nameserver 8.8.8.8" >> /etc/resolv.conf

Re: Problem booting. I get to the grub prompt after using boot-repair and gbparted

Try using the one with the latest date - you must be at version 2.19. Do you have or can you get the Mint 17 live media version that matches your installation :?: We'll have to pick this up tomorrow as it's real late here (or should I say early) Having the same version live media would be a big help...

What does errors=remount-ro do?

Terry
If an error is detected it will remount the filesystem read only to prevent further corruption otherwise it will just mark the filesystem as erroneous and continue which is the default set in the superblock.
