Re: Mint 17.3 low on disk space

Another alternative to finagling with the partitions or symlinks is to move the /home folder to that partition :wink: sudo du -sh /home/ will show how much space that folder is using. I ran it and got 14gig. So you will essentially clear up 14gig of your mint filesystem and anything you save to the...

Re: How to change file date to creation date ?

If you used the cp command the -a option preserves the original time, same as rsync with the -a option.

Whatever you used, you didn't specify, should have an option to preserve the date/time of the original file.

Re: fsck an lvm volume?

I installed Mint 19 Cinnamon with full disk encryption (an encrypted LVM.). You have an encrypted system so you would first need to open the LUKS container from the installation USB to expose the filesystem with sudo /sbin/cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 sda5_crypt # sda5 matches the encrypted partit...

Re: Partioning advice dualboot LM18.3 and 19

Just to clarify the partitioning, the 4th would be the extended partition where you would then setup the logical partitions. I sort of misspoke in my first post. Also you can't mix gpt and msdos partitions on a disk. The disk is either gpt or msdos partitioned. And yes you can use the same /swap for...

Hello linux-nu-bee https://thumb.ibb.co/dA8CQ8/hello.gif Welcome to Linux Mint and the Linux Mint forum :) If you did resize from a running system you might have damaged the filesystem.

Re: Partioning advice dualboot LM18.3 and 19

MyM,

What you're attempting sounds feasible.

Resize/move and create your partitions from the live session and make sure you can boot 18 before installing 19.

You will only need one logical partition for home as that would be your 4th primary.

Good luck :wink:

Is the file there :?:

Paste back ls -lh /etc/profileand ls -lh /usr/share/base-files/profile and diff /usr/share/base-files/profile /etc/profile

The diff command should not produce any results.
