Re: Venture into deep water: UUIDs!

sudo vol_id -u device

Will display the UUID for a device (if you require the value)

Are you able to post fstab?

You know you are a Linux User when...

Just some random thoughts about whether you are a Linux User or not. You are a Linux user when: • You can Bash all day and not face assault charges • You think Gnomes are good looking and useful (but spacial browsing is not) • You have the uncontrollable urge to talk to anyone who would wear a RedHa...

Re: Not giving choice of OS on bootup?

Look for a line (close to top of file)

Code: Select all

timeout 5


The number is the number of seconds before automatically booting the default os.

Re: Mints been fun but...

Really only need one swap (unless you are hibernating a system). Yes you can have 2 /home partitions and swaps, just need to set up fstab correctly. If you want LinuxMint to keep the bootloader then chainload (can google or ask in this thread). This would mean installing Debian's grub on the install...

Re: Removing windows disc

Hi PHM Will require more details. But I am assuming that the drive allocations have changed and either grub and/or fstab are having problems. Hit Alt+F1 when booting. Any messages or what is listed when it hangs? Also an idea of what the hard drive configuration was and now is would be useful (i.e. ...

Re: does Mint 4.0 fully use 8GB of Ram?

Hi From what I understand of 32bit OS's (of which LinuxMint is one) there is the theoritical 4GB limit Husse speaks of, so whilst a motherboard may physically support or hold 8GB the OS may not be able to use it. So I think that recompiling a 32bit kernel will not use all 8GB. Will 8GB be required? ...

Hi Jadaro Can you post the menu.lst with a quick description of what you want to accomplish (i.e. which lines/os'es to be present, which to be default)? This could help Fred (who is quite helpful and busy). More general concepts are around if googled, but if these don't make sense then the help here...

Re: could not find kernel image

Could try booting the liveCD from a usb key. Had a similar issue with a Toshiba but usb worked fine (or could try an external CD/DVD drive).

Re: FAT32 question

From what I understand WindowsXP can not format a drive over 32Gb but can mount larger volumes (any size I believe, it was Windows98 that had a limit around 120GB).

Though with current LinuxMint you can read/write to NTFS, never had a problem and other limits (such as file size) are taken care of.
