[CLOSED] Re: problem with installing PHP

I did the scorched earth approach in the end, and reinstalled Linux from scratch as the various attempts to 'fix' the installation were not working Installing the remainder of the LAMP stack worked fine with a fresh Linux installation so I did not 'solve' what was causing the issue, but I did acheiv...

[SOLVED] Backup manager not working?

Hmmmm

given it seems to be a known issue, makes you wonder why the devs have not retired it until the bugs are fixed

Re: Backup manager not working?

I am sure the error message makes sense to someone more in tune with the intricacies of the system (mintbackup.py:18759): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'mintbackup.py' received an X Window System error. This probably reflects a bug in the program. The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for oper...

[SOLVED] Backup manager not working?

Having just done a clean install of Linux Mint 18 Mate, I installed a couple of programs and decided to run the backup tool included in the menu before i spent ages installing software and finding it did not work (it was one of many things not working in the last installation) It starts OK, asks for...

Re: problem with installing PHP

I tried the option to purge everything and re-install, but still apache wont start. I think a scorched earth approach may be best, wipe the partition tomorrow and re-install Linux - that way I know there are no nasty fragments lurking upsetting everything. I suspect I have some bits left that are fi...

Re: problem with installing PHP

eeeek

that killed my apache :(

now apache will not start - the error log is full of errors :(

it seems that something is out of balance, maybe the best solution is to clear everything out and restart from scratch

Re: Hello I'm Chris

Right now I do prefer an open source password manager (a non-open source one could mean that the software developer has your password with no way for you to find out). KeePass is fairly secure in that regard, since you have both the manager and the password database on your computer, the developer ...

wireless disappears and will not reconnect without reboot

I am having a problem with my wifes laptop. When the laptop starts up, we can connect to the wireless router no problem, and it runs OK for some time (hours) but then suddenly it will lose internet connectivity (that is the symptom) and after a while it will fail to connect to the router.

Re: Grub Disappeared, how to recover

@kurotsugi - thanks, that worked, I was able to restore my Linux installations. I think the Windows partition got corrupted as it will not load, and I get a filesystem error when I try to read the files from Linux. I guess I will have to live without my Windows games :)

Grub Disappeared, how to recover

I was running a multi-boot system - Windows XP, Mint 12, Mint 14, UberStudent and was using Windows when the processor died a horrible death in operation. It was totally dead, no sign of life so I purchased a cheap replacement system, swapped the old hard drive from my old system into the new system...
