Re: Unable install LM 19 cinnamon stable from USB

Downloaded LM 19 Cinnamon 64bit ISO and verified the SHA-256. Created the installation USB using Windows 10 Pro 64bit. The USB seems OK when I look at the contents in the file explorer. By OK I mean that I am familiar with the folder structure. README.diskdefines identified the contents. The BIOS r...

Re: noapic - does it disable multiple cores?

I had to add noapic to grub to resolve boot problems on a Dell Dimension C521. I have read a few comments that using noapic will disable multiple cores but I have not seen this in anything resembling 'official' documentation. In this instance the CPU is a single core Athlon 64 , not X2, but I'd lik...

Turn off fast startup in Windwoes and shut it down properly, or, at risk of losing any unsaved data:

Re: Authenticity check

Yes, 27DEB15644C6B3CF3BD7D291300F846B A25BAE09 . I don't know why they put only the short id in that part of the instructions. Because the way sha256 works, you get the signing key in the last 8 bits -> A25BAE09. If the source file is modified by a single byte, you won't get the correct key at the ...
