2 HDD, 2 BOOT LOADERS, Probably something easy

I had two computers With Linux mint on them. Well, one computer died. I wanted to salvage data off of the hard drive (since it's fine). The problem is that when I put it in my working computer I think the computer is getting confused as to which boot loader to use. Both drives were configured as a p...

Re: 2.6.22-14-generic omgwtfdairyqueenbbqpie

Solved....

My resolution was to wipe and reload everything from scratch.
My advise, is to filter out anything in your mintUpdate that's not a level 1 update. :/

Re: 2.6.22-14-generic omgwtfdairyqueenbbqpie

That didn't seem to help any. Am I totally screwed and have to re-install?

Once it does vanish and it gives me the bash prompt here is what is...

Re: Blind as a bat.

Ah, that explains that. Thank you.

Re: internet options not showing up as an option in firefox

Mine doesn't have an Internet Options. If I'm not mistaken that's an Internet Explorer menu option. Mine has 'Preferences'.


Hope this helps.
