Re: boot win10 from inside linux, weird I know

Hey, I was just thinking and wondering... I think I know the answer but was there a way to have 2 drives, one with linux another with win10 and then to boot that win10 from inside the linux. Something like VirtualBox and similar BUT with the difference to have win10 already installed there and just...

Re: I'm out of patience.

I think more and more lately that people who are being frustrated with Linux need ease into it instead of jumping into the deep end of the pool without learning how to swim. Keep your Windows computer, or at least dual-boot. If you can afford it, get a second hand computer just for Linux. Learn it a...

Re: HP Mini net/note book

If you can increase that ram to 2gb it would be less painful to use. I like Mint, but I'd go with MX or even AntiX when dealing with those specs. If you must use Mint, go with Mint 18 xfce. It has a couple of years support left and I believe it is faster than any new Mint version.

Re: Questions about Full Install of Mint 19.1 to USB

I've done this perhaps 20-30 times. It is very easy to do if you want to keep it simple. Carefully use gparted to prepare the stick, usually gparted pulls up the main hard drive when it's launched. Use that drop down arrow to pull up your stick, sdb, sdc, etc. I format it to ext4 with a mount point ...

Re: Grub Rescue when installing LMDE 3

You said you cancelled halfway through. Can't you just start the installation over again?
Or are you saying the installation cancelled itself?

No, just Mint update.
I was thinking that I heard somewhere we should use "apt" instead of "apt-get" in the terminal in Mint, and thought that was what you were getting at.

Re: How to fix broken mysql

What can/should I do? Thank you! sudo apt-get upgrade I cannot fathom why people persist in doing that. One of the things you should do is not use upgrade from the command line unless you're prepared to fix your own mess. To be clear, you are telling OP they should just use apt upgrade or Mint Upda...

Agreed. They mostly hear from us when we are unhappy or something breaks or doesn't work right.

Re: DROPBOX - so, where are you going with it?

Since Dropbox now limits to 3 accounts I'm replacing it with pcloud. There is no limit on devices, and you get 10 gb free storage. It works on Windows and Linux.

Lots of old Thinkpads regularly come off of office lease end up on Ebay, and they are great machines with decent specs. I have one that's 10 years old and works great. It's incredible how the prices of lap...

Re: Dropbox now limits you to three devices

I read some other recommendations for pCloud, and loaded it on my Android devices. I was sorry to see that the Mint software repository had nothing in it relating to pCloud. It loads from their website by down loading a small file that you have to make executable, and once you run it, it's on your ...

no it's not good news cause ultimately it was give microCRAP a healthy say how the base browser chromium is put together. It could be good or bad. If MS is sending patches and improvements upstream that help Chromium--great. But I hope someone keeps a good eye on that code. Ultimately it does show ...
