Re: Bad RAM management

I googled "please specify mtrr_gran_size/mtrr_chunk_size" (include the quotes) which leads me to this article: http://my-fuzzy-logic.de/blog/index.php?/archives/41-Solving-linux-MTRR-problems.html The last section covers your exact error and what they did to solve it.

Re: Formatted USB reads 1% used

8 KB out of 15241664 KB does not equal 1% use. Your df command is rounding up. Do the math; it's 0.000052488% or about a twenty thousandth of a percent. As your filesystem is in range 8 GB to 16 GB it's cluster size is 8 KB. df shows you have one cluster in use. That's where my FAT32 knowledge stops...

Re: Why go with Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 for the first time?

Right now for Linux Mint 19 everybody is on the GA (general availability) kernel as the HWE kernel doesn't come into the picture till February 2019 (see Ubuntu 18.04 kernel schedule https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Support#A18.04.x_Ubuntu_Kernel_Support). Update Manager I think will suggest upgrade to...

Re: Why go with Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 for the first time?

LMDE3 seems to have far fewer updates being applied, and so far, not once has it offered up a new kernel that "might break" my WiFi like 18.3 does with every new kernel. Linux Mint 19 default uses Ubuntu's hardware enablement (HWE) kernels, which means roughly every 6 months you get a new upstream ...

Re: Why go with Linux Mint Debian Edition 3 for the first time?

I'd say some reasons to go for LMDE could be: - you have a strong, informed and uncompromising preference for a Debian package base over an Ubuntu package base - you need to run it on a very old CPU (as in 15 years old)—LMDE 3 32-bit works on CPUs that don't have PAE support (practically all CPUs fr...

Re: Boot hangs at "Device Initialisation"

Do you have a link to the trackball script and list of additional packages you installed? To narrow down on what component is the cause of this will take some more time. Time consuming but something like: 1. install afresh 2. reboot and verify still works 3. update 4. reboot and verify still works 5...

We've updated all the links on the https://linuxmint.com/links.php page, to add https where websites support it. Thanks for letting us know! The redirect to https sometimes not happening is upstream to us and likely affects many more websites besides us. We'll have to wait a bit how that resolves. A...

Re: Homepage: Link to the Forum isn't https:// (anymore)

I can't reproduce this. Using the HTTP link to either will result in the server sending back a HTTP 301 response, redirecting the web browser to use HTTPS instead. Possibly the issue is related to web browser cache. I'd like to know which web browser you were using and whether you can reproduce this...

Re: What would you do?

Personally I would go without Windows but that's just because I've managed to move to alternatives to Windows-only programs long time ago. The time sync issue between Windows and Linux Mint you can solve by switching Linux Mint to not use UTC time. You can do so on Linux Mint 19 with the following c...

Re: Mint is like the cigarettes and should come with a warning

The comparison doesn't hold up. Linux Mint isn't a cause for at least a dozen types of cancer like cigarettes. Nor does it cost hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars a year to use. It's quite the opposite. Linux Mint is more like quitting smoking.

Re: What would you do?

Both desktops should be able to run any Linux Mint edition you want. As for disk space there's only a small difference between the editions. Safely assume the operating system needs about 10 GB for installation. It's really up to you. If you managed to fill up your 60 GB disk it's probably because y...

Re: Firefox Search issue

This is very weird and I really can't explain it. It's not present on a default 18.3 install (I no longer have 18.1 here but it's using the exact same Firefox package as 18.3 so useful for this testing). Did you perhaps install Firefox from somewhere else? Run this command and share its output here:...

Just keep a timer running when trying any games. To be eligible for refund the purchase has to have been made in the past 2 weeks and you can't have more than 2 hours (120 minutes) of playtime.
