Samba can safely be deleted/purged from the system Johan. As long as you aren't sharing files across your home computer network, nor sharing files from your computer in a work setting. It's one of the first things I purge from my system as my other half's Win10 computers utterly refuse to let me in. Which is a bit ironic as Microsoft now maintains Samba...

I just have no need for it anymore...

Plymouth seems to be intertwined with all sorts of things, in the operating system. It causes no end of grief, and its a PITA to remove, without breaking something. Plus, successfully removing Plymouth is a moving target and changes, from release-to-release.



iirtc, we can't just rip plymouth right out from the get go from PMXI?

I don't think I've ever seen that splash screen...

Hi Spence,

I am happy to see that you tried out the "hacks" taught to me by my teacher with really good results.

He really is amazing with his knowledge, (at least to me), of the Peppermint OSs.

Anytime I really, really, screw things up, he just laughs, types things in my system, and all of a sudden everything just works again and usually even better than before.

Even though he has "written" down all his command codes for me, I am still amazed this old man seems to have these all memorized yet cannot remember why he walked over to the fridge and opened the door, forgetting what he wanted in the first place, lol.

Warm Regards,

The Omen

Okay thanks. I don't share files, so don't need samba.

Well, the proof's in the pudding, as they say. I've never had a problem on any machine - laptop, desktop, 64bit, 32bit, et cetera by simply masking Plymouth.

IMO, there are too many hooks involved (system hooks and base hooks) to fool around with. And, I repeat myself, it changes with every release.

That said, you spurred me to action. I finally achieved my FIRST 10-sec boot EVER, on this doorstop Dell  :))

That's all I ever wanted, but it was elusive. I shaved 1-2 second off the boot time by eliminating HD spin-up via Grub.

Current (10 second doorstop) Grub Config
[close]

That'll do it, for this machine. Thanks, for that...

Can you savely delete Samba? Won't it harm Peppermint? And what is Samba needed for anyway? :-\


If you'll pardon me quoting myself...   :)


I've never used anything but FTP on my LAN. There's a reason this ancient protocol has survived.

Long story short, FTP not only has error detection, but it also has error correction - and it's cross-platform.

Samba is a sad old toy IMO. And, I don't even know what 'Windows Shares' is.

Just saying. Not trying to offend anyone...


And...


Samba is a useless drain to me.  No reason to have it listening for output.  Dittos for btrfs-tools @ startup.  So, I purged them both[...]


Only problem I ran across [...] was Nemo wouldn't connect to FTPS and SCP locations afterward.  So, I had to backtrack a little, and reinstall gvfs-backends and the smb client (but not the server).
