New Users / Startup help needed [SOLVED]
« on: September 16, 2018, 08:18:41 am »
I need some help with my computer running Peppermint 8.
When I login it shows the Grub login and defaults to a page that says
/dev/sda2 contains a file system with errors, check forced.
/dev/sda2: Inodes that were part of a corrupted orphan linked list found.

    (i.e. without -a or -p options)
fsck exited with status code 4
The root filesystem on /dev/sda2 requires a manual fsck

BusyBox v1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22.0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands..


Can anyone help me get this problem sorted please.

Installation / stalled at the Grub screen (SOLVED)
« on: March 26, 2018, 08:48:22 am »
Hi All,
I had a machine running Pep 7 and dual booting with Pep 8.
I deleted the Pep 8 and now when I try to boot the computer stops at a screen that says
GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.17
Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB list possible device or file completions.
Can anyone help me get my machine to boot again ??
If necessary I will wipe the machine and re-install Pep 7

take care

Development / help needed with website development (SOLVED)
« on: October 06, 2015, 03:04:04 pm »
Hi All,
Can I ask here for some help on making a website for my local woodworking club.
Can I ask what is needed to create a site on my computer and what I need to install, I have had a look at Wordpress and even bought a book on building a website but the author doesn't use the free .com site and uses the fee paid .org site. I will take a while to get this together and don't want to start paying fees if I can run it on my computer.
Can anyone tell me what I need to get this project running/ if I can get this project running. ?
