Re: Ethernet not recognised!

by amethyst_igor » Wed Dec 28, 2016 2:18 pm I'd check your router and see what devices are connected and what IP addresses they are using. Your laptop only tells half the story. I'd try connecting to different ports on the same router, swap out the cable, try connecting in Windows or another Linux ...

Re: Ethernet not recognised!

Thanks for the response amethyst_igor. I doubt it's a physical issue as the laptop has not been abused or had a lot of use and I don't have the item you referred to. To be honest didn't know they existed! The key to me is the missing inet address. I can re-establish the inet add: with following $ su...

Re: Crash - Log files?

G'day I wouldn't worry about the 0.28 version of GPT/UEFI as I can't make a copy of it plus I strongly advise against playing around with GPT/UEFI firm ware. Use Windows 10 to shrink the Windows 10 partition as I've suggested. Then use the Live Linux Mint DVD or USB using Gparted and make 3 partitio...

Re: Crash - Log files?

G'day again What is the history of this laptop, ie what was the earliest version of Windows installed? Go into Windows Disk Manager to see what partitions are installed. If there is a small about 100MB Fat32 partition you will have the GPT partition system and not the old BIOS. If its the GPT partit...

Re: Make Live USB Stick

G'Day YoMan Are you wanting to produce a backup for your total Cinnamon installation, ie root plus /home (data)? I use Clonezilla regularly to image my hard drive which contains W8, which I rarely use, and Linux Mint 17.3 Mate. The image is stored on an ext HDD from which I can restore individual pa...

Re: Crash - Log files?

G'day okatomy Your post has surprised me, I'd forgotten about that incident which was a one off. The laptop has performed beautifully. I'm currently using Linux Mint 17.3 64 bit dual booted with W8, which I rarely use only - for updating my vehicle GPS. I've been a fan of Linux for many years and ne...

Re: Make Live USB Stick

Suggest you have a look in Accessories > USB Stick Formatter and > USB Stick Write (to write the Cinnammon iso ) will provide a Live USB Cinnamon stick.
Is that what your looking for? 8)

Following imaging the 750 GB HDD using a USB Clonezilla successfully, proceeded in setting up an Acer Aspire V5 with Windows 8 installed for installation of Linux Mint 18 Mate dual booting. Had shrunk a partition via W8 and restored "BIOS" to default settings. Now I can no longer access the "BIOS". ...

[Solved] Additions to Backup of /home partition

Hi, does backing up the /home partition include the additional setting for printers, WiFi etc or do I have to include some additional folders from / (root) to complete the backup? :)
