Okay, when you first turn on your PC .. if you do NOTHING, which OS boots automagically (Windows or Peppermint) ?

I'm beginning to wonder if there'd be more money in PC smuggling than drugs :o

You reckon they'd survive a drop from a low flying plane piloted by some Mexican dude ?

Is your OBRevenge OS set up with a separate /home partition?


Good luck. I will be scarce around these parts for the next few weeks. I have a mountain of real-world work facing me...

Sorry, I didn't get back sooner.  It's been a stupid busy day here too.  My laptop had two drives, an SSD for my distros and a HDD for my /DATA and swap space.  Yeah, OBRevenge OS has separate /home partition.  I alway run a fdisk -l check before messing with partitions.   In my early days of using dd, it bit me on the arse/ass big time; never again though  ;).   OBRevenge OS is on /dev/sda7, (/root) and  /dev/sda8, (/home):

GNU/Linux Gaming / Thinking About It....

So, I've noticed those Alienware Steam Machine prices are starting to really drop, no doubt stores are trying to reduce stock.  I've noticed the i7 model is especially low these days.  In fact, for an i7 quad core with 8GB RAM, a 1TB HDD and a GTX960, they're almost too good for this gamer to pass up.  Plus, that case is sexy.  So, I'm thinking about it.  I figure, if I don't like Debian based Steam OS, I can always dump it and put Peppermint on there with Steam set to start automatically in Big Picture mode.  I've read reviews and most of the issues people seem to have with them is an unfamiliarity with Linux and that their Steam libraries are mostly not Linux compatible.  Neither are issues for me.  ;)

lspci | grep -i wireless

Code: [Select]
01:00.0 Network controller: Qualcomm Atheros AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

It cuts out at random, but more often when I have it on lap or other 'not perfectly flat and stable' surface. I can reboot while on said surface and it'll work again. I've tried differant commands for shutting down/rebooting the actual hardware both with gui and command line and the only thing that actually works is shut down/restart.

What other commands do I run to help you help me?
