Re: How do I check if the 'Beta' version of 18.2 is installed v.s. the 'non-Beta'

Ok. Then I guess this is solved.
It just struck me as being odd we couldn't check this.
Thanks everyone for the replies.

Re: Recommended Kernel MATE18.2

It depend on the CPU generation you're running.: Kabxlake: 4.10 skylake: 4.8 anything older: 4.4 AMD CPUs: use 4.10 Kerne 4.4 is to old to support *lake processors right 4.8 is too old to support kabylake fully even as it supports skylake. Anyways you may use the most current kernel in update manag...

[SOLVED] How do I check if the 'Beta' version of 18.2 is installed v.s. the 'non-Beta'

Pretty much as the Subject says:

How do I check if the final release of 18.2 (the non-Beta version) has been installed/upgraded v.s. the 'Beta' release of 18.2?

Thanks.

Re: Recommended Kernel MATE18.2

I can't find the article at the moment, but I thought that running anything before kernel version 4.5.x was not safe anymore.
I don't remember what the vulnerability was anymore.

If I am wrong, maybe someone here could clarify . . . but that was my understanding.

Re: Mint 13 Can see My NAS - Mint 18.1 Can Not

In your screen shot, the top-left (above the Add a Firewall Rule) there is Profile(Home), Status(ON). Just below that there is Incoming(Deny) and Outgoing(Allow), setting Incoming(Allow) should allow everything in/out with the FW on. Then you can create a rule from the Report tab. I tried that, and...

I don't know if this is helpful, but the message I am getting with the firewall on (with and without the rules added) is:
Unable to mount location
Failed to retrieve share list from server: No such file or directory
. . . but it works with the Firewall off

Re: Mint 13 Can see My NAS - Mint 18.1 Can Not

He is not disabling his firewall so others can access his shares. He has to disable his firewall so that he can access someone else's shares - but only one of the devices ( DLink ) not the other (FreeNAS). Almost as if he has a "deny out" to a select set of ip addresses and the DLink is included. T...

Re: Mint 13 Can see My NAS - Mint 18.1 Can Not

Apologies for bumping this thread, but surely there must be a way to configure the firewall properly so that we don't have to turn it off just to be able to access the NAS devices.

Anyone?

Re: Mint 13 Can see My NAS - Mint 18.1 Can Not

I've followed the link and determined that it has something to do with the firewall. As soon as I disable it, I can see everything. I can't be much help concerning the firewall I'm afraid. All of my Linux systems are fixed assets ( desktops not laptops ) and as I'm always behind a router I never en...

I've used (Paid For) a few in the past (VPN4ALL, ProXPN, HideMyAss).

Has anyone had any experience with Windscribe?
