What you find good and what bad about this idea and why? :D Personally, I'm not sure if I agree with this idea or not. I think that the idea of developing a program that will run on EVER...

Re: Mint 17.3 low on disk space

I would like to add/merge the 240gig partition to my Mint file system without losing any data. Nobody can guarantee that you won't mess something up. Backup your treasured stuff before proceeding. You will need to delete the 240GB partition and extend the extended partition into that space, then de...

Re: Should I update my Bios?

I bought a re-furbed Dell Optiplex 7010 and blew out the Win 10 install for Mint 19. Everything seems to be functioning flawlessly. After playing with it a few weeks, I noticed my bios version is A16 while the latest version is A29. According to Dell's site the intervening versions had several upda...

You might want to start a live media session and mount /dev/sda8 where your /home is located. Backup everything you need then start deleting things you don't need. You're also h...
