Re: Changing back to Windows 7

If you tell us which Realtek modem you use, we might be able to help you making it work on Linux. Edit: According to your earlier posts, you have a RTL8101E/RTL8102E modem, right?

Re: Installing Mint over Windows, need help....

Well, if you don't have a USB stick or CD/DVD to back up your files, you could use a cloud service.. There are some free ones. However, if your files contain private or confindental information, I would advise against it.

Re: How Often Does Official Repository Update?

I would only resort to a PPA or a downloaded file if the version from the official repository doesn't work. As long as there are no problems or vulnerabilities, it doesn't really matter if an application is slightly outdated.

While I find the manner in which the opening post was written and especially the title quite awkward and not really helpful as well, I think we should not fall into self-complacency. There are always things that could and should be improved. You have to be aware that, while a lot of us here know how...

I wonder if /var/run gets unmounted or dbus is stopped before the PulseAudio daemon is shut down or something. In that case, these can be safely ignored, especially if everything comes back up happy.

Re: What are the pros and cons of multiple partitions for 1

All you really need is a root partition ("/") and if your PC uses UEFI, an EFI-Boot partition... If you have less than 4-6 GB RAM, a swap partition is also advisable. A seperate /home partition could also be useful in some cases but is not really required.. If you have for example a small ...
