Re: Mint 18 and very small errors

I have done the new installation (second).
Changed /boot partition from 100MB to 500MB
Also changed / partition from 8GB to 12,5GB, because it seem to pretty full.

No errors anymore, so problem solved. I think /boot partion was too small for what ever initramfs-tools was doing there.

Re: Mint 18 and very small errors

I think my /boot partition 100MB disk space is just too small for initramfs-tools. I don't know what it's, but that's seem to be my source of errors.
So I'm gonna do new installation with little different partion sizes.

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

I switched Linux Mint from Windows XP (tryed for year), so more like from Windows 2000. Reason is very simple, because Windows started too much controll what I can or can't do. Meaning OS designers started to define how the OS should be used and did not give anymore other choise. It was more like so...

Re: Microsoft is Doomed

The problem with Windows 8 and Unity is that the interfaces are so different from what people are used to that they are often rejected. But, once you get used to them they are not so bad. Of course, it still comes down to personal preference. Believe it or not, some people did like Vista. While I a...

Re: Why do you always have to ruin everything?

I think it's good thing that if someones isn't happy with something then they tells what's wrong. Sure messages could be more detailed as what's wrong, but in this case it seem, it's like many small details. Also fixing issues one by one, doesn't fix the real issue, that the problems existed in firs...

Re: Live works but installed version doesn't?

Is it too outdated to run Linux Mint 15 with Cinnamon? A friend suggested OpenSuse but everything I've heard is that Mint is the way to go for older systems. Like above suggested to you, try Linux Mint MATE or OpenSuse. Both are excelent choises too. As you system is older and it did not work right...

Re: Audacious no sound?

Posting my self solution as I got it working.

It seems that Pulse-Audio is working for Audacious after I removed my Graphics card hdmi audio as output with Pulseaudio volume control manager. So, I assume that Audacious was using my other audio output as primary output.
