Re: how to increase home partition. I have dual boot os. #2

Your linux installation is located on logical partition in the extended area and the unallocated space is in the primary partition area. You cannot extend a logical partition into the primary partition table. You can move the sda5 partition to the unallocated space with gparted then expand it to 48+...

Not quite sure about that - I've never checked.

Re: [Solved]Deleted Windows, Linux boot option gone

Don't use move, use copy.

There's no need to use move as copy will do the same as move, i.e,. the files will just remain in /tmp/mine after copying them to the destination location.

Using cp -a will preserve all the original file dates and times if that's important.

Re: [Solved]Deleted Windows, Linux boot option gone

I don't know what cp -a is, the files wouldn't appear in the home directory in my file manager even after I mounted it, and I am comfortable with the terminal. It isn't difficult, just complicated. Also the last line put out this. mint ~ # mount -i -t ecryptfs -o "$mount_opts" "$d&qu...

Re: [Solved]Deleted Windows, Linux boot option gone

mint ~ # mount -o remount,rw /tmp/mine When remounting eCryptfs, you need to pass the mount utility the -i parameter to avoid calling the mount helper It's comical to me how complicated this is. Yea it's never easy with this stuff :roll: Try this umount /tmp/mine export opts=rw mount_opts="$op...

You can use cp -a /tmp/mine /destination or mount -o remount,rw /tmp/mine

Re: Mint won't work!

I was hoping for a better outcome, but it is what it is :( 17.3 doesn't have the amdgpu driver package. There's nothing either of us can do - it's out of our hands. I would recommend Ubuntu as an alternative as Mint's base is Ubuntu. When you become an expert you might want to try adding the Mint re...

Re: Mint won't work!

You're welcome :wink:

Since this is really new and there's no real loss here run sudo apt dist-upgrade to get the latest packages.

Also, since I'm unsure of 17.3 what does dpkg -l|grep amdgpu return if anything.

Re: Mint won't work!

No, I'm trying to determine if there's something that can be done with 17,3.

When you ran apt list --installed xserver-xorg-video-amdgpy -a was that on 17.3 or the USB :?:
