Re: So which are the 'best' browsers for 2020 (according to you)?

My current choice is in the given order: Firefox (still, even though I am not a conviced fan of each and every change, which Mozilla keeps on surprising us with) Closely followed by Vivaldi (it is what Opera once was, before Opera was sold out.) With a growing distance to no. 1 and 2 Pale Moon (no, ...

Re: [SOLVED] Can't boot Tara after kernel update: can't restore via Timeshift

Note: swap devices do not have a filesystem, which could be checked by fsck. swap devices are raw devices, where the OS mirrors parts of the main memory. This is why partition #3 cannot be checked by fsck. fsck cannot check it, even in case the swap device is not in use at all (swapping disabled). ...

Filesystems switching to R/O state, however, is not an issue which has happened on my PB laptop so far. 4.15.0-151 is freezing intel 5th ...
