Re: Are the repositories working?

Adding to the confusion, ping by itself will keep pinging the address until you Ctl+C. You can add the -c switch followed by a space and a number(the number of times to ping). ping -c 3 www.google.com PING www.google.com (216.58.194.100) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from dfw06s48-in-f4.1e100.net (...

Re: Kernel Upgrade failed

Original post suggests what you have already said. Kernel 4.4 is installed(kinda), but update-initramfs
removed the entries for 4.4 .
Go ahead and uninstall in update manager, possibly change your mirrors, and try again :D
Or even with a different image.

Re: Kernel Upgrade failed

Which way did you try to upgrade?
Update manager seemingly works better, than synaptic or software manager.
Then there is the old-fashioned way, download source from kernel.org and configure, compile, and install it yourself.

Re: Flash player doesn't seem to work

Another thing, flash is stuck at 11.2 for linux(no longer getting updates), although there are security updates. A possible workaround is to install chrome, and use the pepperflash-plugin in firefox. However, in my installation, I wind up using chrome for flash videos and games, as the video is "stu...

Re: Hyperthreading?

I was disappointed in my Cpus Overclocking performance. I went straight for 5GHz and crashed it several times. Went back to a what I call a super stable 4.8. Prime95, Rhythmbox, forums running at same time. Took a tiny bit more voltage for stable LM vs win10 But as is well :) EDIT: an an additional ...

Re: Hyperthreading?

In the BIOS it shows 4841 MHz. In windoze(ugh) CPU-Z shows 4841.
cpuinfo and lscpu in LM shows ~4700, like its not counting the 103 BCLOCK.
Just an idle curiosity, at over 4 GHz i dont think 100MHz matters too much :D

Re: UN SOLVED --Software Update applet shows red "X"

Usually a reboot changes that line in google-chrome.list back to default.
Make the google-chrome.list file read only after editing with [arch=amd64].

Re: ttf-mscorefonts-installer Issues

If you have WINE installed, i would not delete these links.
This is 1 of 4 places that wine looks for fonts.
/usr/share/fonts, /usr/share/wine/fonts, ~/.fonts in the home directory, and whereever the equivalent of C:\Windows\Fonts is.

Re: ttf-mscorefonts-installer Issues

The link files are not actual files, but symbolic links.
When you click on properties, it shows the file size of the file it is linked to, not the actual link itself.
Think of the link files as "shortcuts" in windoze.

Re: mint 17 novice question about software rendering mode.

I have always been of the opinion, 64 bit is NOT just for >3Gb RAM :D

64 bit hardware was meant for a 64 bit OS, regardless of the amount of memory.

Re: mint 17.3 w/ cinnamon & skylake gpu - graphics issues

Hmmm.... heres a hypothesis.
Maybe its the base of the distro that has problems with Skylake.
Mint is based on 14.04 Ubi, and even the latest kernels dont help, but Ubi 15.10 does
