Hard drive space? [SOLVED]

I have recently installed Linux Mint 13 inside Windows. The description said that it runs like any other program, and I'm trying to find out how much storage space I have when I boot Linux. Do Windows and Mint share the hard drive and save things to the same hard drive, or does Mint have its own lit...

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

I also can't connect to my home network. I think I mentioned this earlier, but the exact thing happens as it did before I applied the internet terminal fix. Is there any reason why this is happening? Do I need to do something else in the terminal to get internet working at home, or do I need to make...

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

The driver my computer says it has is iwlwifi, but the terminal codes (for connecting) worked when I used iwlagn. What's up with this? I Mint 13 is now considerably faster, but it is still noticeably slower than Windows. The speed test site said that the connection was faster than before, but quite ...

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

When I typed rmmod iwlwifi I got an error message: ERROR: Removing 'iwlwifi': Operation not permitted I went on ahead and did the other stuff, the ping speed increased a bit, but the download and upload speeds were drastically lowered, even from Mint 13 before. I am on a public network, so this may ...

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

I did what the site told me to do, and it solved nothing. It just disconnected me from the wifi and gave me the same problem I had before I edited the pluma file, though this problem was only temporary. The internet speed is still slow, any other ideas as to what I should do?

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

My internet speed is considerably slower on Mint 13 than on Windows 7. Is it possible that this is because I have Mint installed alongside Windows, or is this incorrect thinking? Also, is there anything different that I'd need to do since I'm running Mint instead of Ubuntu, or is it the same for bot...

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

Alright, it's working now, thanks! I read somewhere that this lowers the internet connection speed, is this true, or will I never run into this problem? The Mint forum is slower, but none of the other websites I've been to have been noticeably slowed.

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

Sorry for being paranoid, but could you type out exactly what I need to type into the terminal so I don't mess something up? I'm very new to Linux and haven't figured most of it out just yet.

Re: Mint 13 won't connect to wifi?

I put the codes in and used pluma rather than gedit, but it didn't work. I still have to put in the code into the terminal at boot.
