Re: Lmde install alongside Windows 10

to add its bootloader into the existing FAT32-formatted EFI System Partition.
IF someone will use dedicated disk for that OS, than he/she will have option "use entire disk", at least for testing purpose, and, most likely that will work.

Re: Lmde install alongside Windows 10

If possible, use UEFI only (no CSM) and (again, IF possible) follow this rule: "One OS - One SSD/HDD" Then, on boot, press key for motherboard's Boot-menu, usually one of F8 to F12, and than choose OS. For setting of preferable OS (to boot first without touch anything) use efibootmgr from console. H...

I had same error, due to outdated youtube-dl. 1 - Check via Synaptic if there is python-pip installed; if not - install it. 2 - Exit Synaptic 3 - Open terminal and put: sudo pip install --upgrade youtube_dl This command will update youtube-dl if you have already installed it.

Re: Till when can I use LMDE 4?

I was asking myself same question. After researching, I found this:
„LMDE4 will be supported untill LMDE 5 comes out.”
This is not an cynical answer, this answer means: developers will determine later, maybe after year or two, when is LMDE 5 expected to come out.

Of course, that will be all nice if You do not need FDE (full disk encription) because Debian/Devuan have long time trouble with that: Link Link Link(devuan) So, I suppose that is reason why Clem said : "The LMDE 3 installer will not get support for disk or home directory encryption."

Same problem here. Installed Mint 15 Cinnamon x64 cause I taught this "copying multiple files from [url=http://techgage.com/article/d-link_dns-323_nas/]network storage drive[/url] freezing" will not impact it. But, I was wrong. And especialy this is very annoying: The progress bar window remains ope...
