Re: [Solved...kinda IMO]Comcast blocking Liquorix??

Changing DNS in my mint installation allowed me to get to liquorix. But it still doesnt explain why it was working with comcast DNS servers before, and now its not. Anyway, i should have explained, i have a downstream router, for wi-fi in a different area of the property. The comcast gateways have c...

Re: Comcast blocking Liquorix??

Im scratching my head on this one. Of course the comcast rep said "we do not block websites". Same computer, same connection, i still get the same results. Same results on a different computer running Win10. Hmm, I have not made any changes to the network since i installed the new cable modem. It wa...

Re: Comcast blocking Liquorix??

UPDATE: At least i got to talk to an idiot at comcast. I told him i was unable to connect to https://liquorix.net thru firefox. But i was able to connect on same computer by "jumping thru hoops" He said he made some changes to settings and rebooted my gateway. Asked me if it was fixed, i slipped and...

Re: Comcast blocking Liquorix??

Addendum: I did disable gufw, rebooted, and still same thing. Dont know if its related, but my Surfboard5100 cable modem had slowed down to the point of 2Mbs max Down/2 Up. It is DOCSIS 1.1, I believe. During this time, comcast implemented their trial usage metering in Little Rock. Our usage meter o...

[Solved]Comcast blocking Liquorix??

During my kernel compiling attempts on a little 10" Acer, my efforts have temporarily failed at compiling a Zen kernel source. So i thought i would try configuring the liquorix kernel. Several attempts last night, to connect to https://liquorix.net, returned a page not found. (All other pages were f...

Re: Grub reinstall

Heres a thought, convert the win 7 install to UEFI.

Then proceed with EFI install of mint using the existing efi partition.

Re: Why is BleachBit in the Software Manager folder?

Didnt I just see this argument a week or so ago.....?
And if BB is analogous to CCleaner, then it deserves the same amount of consideration IMO.
None at all :roll:

Re: [Solved]Which version?

I transferred 4.5 vanilla from desktop, and downloaded zen-4.5.
Im currently diff'ing my config and the liquorix config for 4.4.4 to see if I missed anything.
(The Liquorix package hasn't caught up with 4.5 yet)
Wish me luck :)

Re: [Solved]Which version?

On a sidebar, and i dont think its new topic worthy, has anyone that has compiled a custom kernel for
one of these little laptops, seen a noticeable improvement in boot times, or program execution times?
Think i might try a zen or liquorix kernel for the hell of it :lol:

Re: Linux Mint kernel source [SOLVED]

I do admit i borked my 1st kernel compile, this time around. UFW was blocking ALL connections. (I can hear the Mint gurus going, "Told you not to mess with it".) After a couple more hours spent looking at menuconfig, I had left out a couple of things in xtables. But in the end, I have a streamlined ...
