Re: Closed--cant install LM17 to second drive

Not a pro, but I just went through this about 3 weeks ago. I have an ssd on sda and a rotating platter hd on sdb. I partitioned as such: sda1 ... /boot ext2 (ie. not journaled) 600 Mb sda2 ... / ext4 50 Gb sdb1 ... /home ext4 size whatever is left over sdb2 ... /swap size 2 x ram I chose ext4 becaus...

Re: MacBook Pro trackpad problems on Linux -- fix it please

@Lemon3, Well, if you cannot find which manufacturer made/coded the pad on your mac; or find a driver for it elsewhere, I think your only options are to look for a linux distro that has that kind of driver (unlikely) or go back to the Apple OS. Too bad that you went through all the effort to install...

Re: MacBook Pro trackpad problems on Linux -- fix it please

@xenopeek; Actually, there are both "free" and "nonfree" drivers supplied for linux distro. Eventually, most seem to find their way into the kernel. For example, about 10 years ago, the Atheros wireless driver was not available for linux, but was included with the windows xp install. A group of code...

Re: Screen of black death installing LM 17

Hi, I had the same problem trying to install to an Hp 64 bit laptop. I tried various options editing the kernal line, but no joy. This using a dvd with a good checksum. So finally on the good advice of ClutchDisc (a couple of days ago here), I used unetbootin to make a usb install. I worked right of...

Re: What is name of utility to manage "software souces"?

Okay, I followed your instructions again, by commenting out the THREE files: sources.list, removed.list, and official-package-repositories.list. Edit..just to be clear to you, I commented out the repo lines in those three files...I did not delete the files. Results of following your other instructio...

Re: What is name of utility to manage "software souces"?

Not sure where I said "delete"; never-the-less, I did edit those files, and put a # (commented out) the repos in the files you suggested. I didd NOT delete them. I may have understood you wrong; just what did you want me to do?

Re: What is name of utility to manage "software souces"?

@DrHu..thank you for that link. I will go get a fresh cup of coffee, and take a careful read. I must say that the idea of a sources.list.d folder and its contents caught me by surprise; I was used to dealing only with a sources.list file prior to yesterday. Best regards, Bob Edit...Ok, I got it now....

Re: What is name of utility to manage "software souces"?

Thanks; I first went to root cli, and typed "mintsources" ...got command not found. Checked to see if mint-mirrors was installed: it was. Checked in synaptic if "mintsources" was installed: it was not. I then selected it to install, but dependencies issues will remove the following: apturl, mintwelc...

Hi..I have a brand new install of LM 17 64bit Mate. I have fully updated with apt-get update/upgrade. (I checked that the new kernel version was compatable with Nvidia 304 first). I had tried to manage the repos with something refered to in the sources.list as "software sources", as it warned agains...

Re: Authentication Keys are MIA on 2014 LM releases

Hi..I suspect that may be only part solution to the post. I had fully updated LM 17 Mate 64bit after install yesterday. Yet I still got a missing key notice when using the update manager. I then tried an apt-get update in the terminal, and it still showed a missing key. IIRC, it was to one of the Ub...

Re: Problems running LM17 64 bit Mate from LiveDVD

Well, I'm up this morning on my second cup of coffee. On the 32/64 bit option: I have a few hard drives for this laptop; all have a 64bit OS, except for the MS Vista 32bit that came with it. One is a Debian Squeeze, another is Fedora (now out of date) and another Debian Wheezy. Currently, I use an S...

Re: Problems running LM17 64 bit Mate from LiveDVD

I did a bit more experimenting this evening. If I try to do integrity check, it does nothing, unless I edit out "quiet" and "splash" and add 1 to start in runlevel 1. Then the dvd drive spins and work. Unfortunatly, there is no video. So I tried the first option to run the livecd and edited out "qui...
