Yeah, next point of call will be a Samsung or Seagate forum I think.

Re: Linux Mint 17 "Qiana" Xfce RC is out!

Should have mentioned that I was interested in the 32 bit version regarding the RAM usage.

Thanks, Michael.

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me what the base RAM usage is, for a default installation, with only the Task Manager running?

Re: Installation Repair

I followed this procedure one time when I had issues with my repositories and software manager and it fixed them right up and didn't harm my installation at all. It didn't affect anything, really, it just fixed what was wrong. So, were your System Settings and things like Firefox History, Session a...

So, how do I fix the problem? How do I reverse what I did? Boot your Mint DVD, check the permissions on all the / directories, and use the Mint DVD to set your hard drive installation back to what it should be. You will have to check each directory and match it to the live DVD. Hi austin.texas, Do ...

Re: Allow Administrator account Read Write access to "/" Fol

"man chmod" is useless for New Linux Users.

As I indicated in my first post, I only want the "root" account and my account to have Full Access to the File Hierarchy.

I'll try to decipher the output from "ls -l /" later.

Thanks, Michael.
