Re: Installation question

Simple command cp -a will "clone" it to any partition big enough. It can be a different filesystem, no problem. After copy you need to configure the bootloader and need to correct entries in the fstab, UUID will be different.

Re: No boot after Update last night.

Don't know about Mint install, but SystemRescueCd can be put on a USB stick and you are logged in as root when it boots up. Meaning there is no permissions problem. Back to your current installation. Do you have separate /boot partition? If yes, then perhaps it is full and all kernel installs fail a...

Re: No boot after Update last night.

Looking at the error 'unknown-block(0,0)'. It tells us your kernel is unable to communicate with SATA controller. Which makes me think maybe your initramfs is not loaded at all, that would mean Grub is screwed up or initramfs is broken/missing.

Re: No boot after Update last night.

Try sudo -i, if succeeds then you can copy files over.

But first I recommend installing the kernel again, I'm guessing something went wrong when initramfs was built.

Re: Any recommendations for Linux Mint anti-virus and internet security?

For internet security, I have installed Ublock Origin add-on in Firefox . . that's it. :) I have also uMatrix. Regarding firewall. You do not need it behind a NAT router. The whole IPv4 address space is under constant scan by bad guys, that's true. But these scans cannot reach you behind NAT router...

Re: Any recommendations for Linux Mint anti-virus and internet security?

Let's put it this way. There are two kinds of computer threats - badwares (viruses, trojans, malware, whatnot). 1. The ones that use a vulnerability of your OS to gain unauthorized access. 2. The ones that con the user into installing them. As a Linux user you need to worry only about the second kin...

Re: Any recommendations for Linux Mint anti-virus and internet security?

This is the mindset of Windows users - viruses come and infect your computer. In actuality there needs to be a vulnerability, a security hole for viruses to exploit. Windows has thousands of security holes, in other words, it does not have the first line of defense. Thus it relies on AV software for...

Re: Mint & Ubuntu don't work on LAN, work on other networks

It appears you may be using DHCP to configure your networking and for some reason your Linux devices are not getting nameservers from DHCP server.

You can unpack those rpm files if you wish and even convert them to deb, there are utilities for this. However, I suggest you do this a as a last resort.

Re: Wired Ethernet problem........

r8168 vs. r8169 The latter is included with kernel and most network cards that identify as RTL8111/8168/8411 work with it. However, it may give firmware load errors. dmesg | grep -i firm will tell. It works despite firmware loading error, I believe some power saving mode is not enabled as a result. ...

Re: Installed OK; but flashing cursor, no GRUB

Basically, when you use legacy mode some motherboard firmwares are looking for bootable flag. Linux does not need this flag to boot, but if you used GPT partitioning then this flag may be not set and the firmware does not find anything to boot. Just guessing.

Re: Installed OK; but flashing cursor, no GRUB

- I've changed in the BIOS the boot order and I've changed to UEFI when it was in "Legacy mode.
While it is possible to change the boot mode without reinstalling anything it is not a task for newcomers. You better keep the boot mode you had at the time of installation.

Re: Wired Ethernet problem........

lspci -k
Will show if the driver is loaded.
Also look at dmesg, all hardware initialization is there.
Then ethtool will tell if there is physical connection.
In case there is try pinging the router, if you get to the router but no internet then there is likely a DNS issue.

Re: Sudden Login Loop on LM18.3

Error -28 is "no space left on device". You may want to switch to the console and clean up a little. (OTOH, there is a chance this error may be bogus, something went wrong with decryption.)
