Re: Lost mount point for installed Mint 12 that's still moun

I look at it differently. For me its not that big a deal. Unless you reboot, you'll never know you can fix things. Using one of those auto boot devices may be easy but you don't learn much. Even if you boot into a gurb> prompt you can easy enough boot from there to the one your on. for example: grub...

Re: Lost mount point for installed Mint 12 that's still moun

Oh, ok. I didn't realize that you had anything mount when I suggested grub-install. That shouldn't make a difference regarding the grub install. Have you tried re-booting yet?

If you re-run bootinfoscript, does anything change?

Re: Lost mount point for installed Mint 12 that's still moun

Well, I'd say you've explained half of what I want to know. The other half is, what is happening with that second command sequence? Does it attempt to replace what's there or repair it? And if the latter, how? Btw, I sure appreciate your staying with me with this. It places grub onto sda pointing t...

Re: How do I extend my Linux Mint partition from Windows spa

Here's how I have backed up in the past, using partclone. sudo apt-get install partclone CLONE (Example) $ sudo su # partclone.ext4 -c -s /dev/sdaX | gzip -c --fast> mint.gz The re-direction needs to go to another partition large enough to hold your cloned gz. Then delete the old partition and use g...

The only problem is the grub for sda1. It might be bootinfoscript's error. There have been changes since the intro of grub 2.0. All UUID's and fstab and swap match.

Re: Mint13-14 Latest Kernel Version Causing EXT4-fs Errors

Guess what? There's nothing wrong (I think). These errors have lead me down the path of futility. Someone mentioned my hard drive might be at fault. On that note, I tried another hard drive. I remove/replace the HD with another. walla! No errors. I used Min14 LIVECD to test it. I didn't think until ...

First that may be true of your hard drive but no such problem for anyone else. How do you know. No one has reported back either way If you type sudo fdisk -l you can list your partitions, however you need the appropriate filesystem check Type fsck (then press TAB) to see options: Correct command is...

Here's another issue with Mint 14 Cinnamon. It trashes the file system. I've been trying to get knowlegment from some developer, but get no response.

Re: Mint13-14 Latest Kernel Version Causing EXT4-fs Errors

Ok, I think I just proved its not Ext4 causing the problem, but in fact Mint's mdm. I rebooted to X-only without a display manager. Then rebooted to Ubuntu to check the fs again. fsck was clean. I wanted to make sure the initramfs was deployed and all the proc devices. I decided to try another FS, s...

You need to rename the orignal file to "n.run" for that to run. do a "ls" from the Terminal to see the name.
