Re: Lenovo G580 Won't allow GRUB dual boot

Please note that other than the grub problem, it seems everything loads onto the single hard drive sda /dev/sda7 is where I put root and /dev/sda5 is where I put /home. I did everything said, including identifying that EFI partition and putting the BL in it, at least I tried to do so. I can boot to ...

Re: Lenovo G580 Won't allow GRUB dual boot

I followed it down to the letter and it failed at the same point, right at the end with the boot loader failing to install:

GRUB installation failed

The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed package failed to install into /target/

Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot.

Re: Lenovo G580 Won't allow GRUB dual boot

I realized that maybe I should have looked at this sooner after your reference. As soon as I can, I'll try and run through it, thank you!

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

I'm still very sick but can at least sit up and stand some. I am going to try my other computer to see if those files and the program run better, if it isn't a bad file/bad camera, they it should run fine on the other computer. Also, it's a tri channel memory computer and admittedly I'm running 2 8G...

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

Oh, and to reply, to the best of my knowledge, two things: trying to move around one particular video and trying to edit into the software an image.

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

Well, I was wrong, it still crashes. Now I am suspecting that the computer could be to blame, or the video from one of the cameras. I am very very ill right now so I cannot focus well enough to pursue further or even write well at the moment, I have bad vertigo and been, well, no need for TMI. I hav...

I've tried 3 different files, so that probably isn't it.

DVD burner not burning all the way, but burned CD

I read that this might be a permissions issue maybe, but why isn't my DVD burner finishing burns and throwing an input/output error at 98% complete, and if it is permissions, how do I set it? Shouldn't this and my other issues have worked automatically with Mint KDE 18.1? I'm starting to wonder if t...

Re: KDENlive keeps crashing Mint 18.1 KDE

My friend that is doing the editing and knows KDEN a little more than me because he's been messing with it, needs to test it now, but it's crashing at least less now. I've messed with a number of things and I'll fill in once I see if it was all useful.

Re: How do I clone/make complete perfect bootup copy?

Ok, all good, I got it. Used Clonezilla but it made an exact copy and didn't resize, something I hadn't considered or prepared for. But it booted fine off the new drive, so after swapping them back and trying to use the partition manager booted off of the old drive, that didn't work either and inter...

It won't let me resize it, won't unmount and I cannot get online now with my original SSD, but it boots.

I figured out how to update ffmpeg from your link. Now it crashes less often. Getting somewhere it seems.

Re: How do I clone/make complete perfect bootup copy?

Ok, I went the clonezilla way, and it worked well, but:

Now I still have the same size partition and an unused space, how do I resize to use all the space while booted into the drive?
