I want to dual boot El Capitan and P8. Is this possible? If not, could I run P8 as the primary OS?

Networking / WiFi Hiccup

I just copped a Toshiba Mini Laptop that I want to install Peppermint 5 on. Well, I can't get WiFi to turn on. It asks for a access code, but it won't access the net.

I tried Fn-F8 twice and all of that to no avail. Any pointers???

I'm running Peppermint 5 on my HP Pavilion G7 and I'm having issues with my display.  >:( It flickers a lot. Is it because I have the screen too bright or do I need to change the refresh rate?

What are you running Peppermint on? / HP Pavilion G7

17.3in monitor, 4GB RAM, AMD processor, 80GB replacement hard drive. Got it from my neighbor who bought a MacBook. This one used to have Win 8 installed. I've had better experiences with HP computers and Peppermint.

I'm Chase aka Dragonsblood. 32 year old security guard and aspiring writer. I was introduced to Linux in college in 2007 and found Peppermint OS 4 in 2013 while recovering from Celiac disease. Recently installed Peppermint OS 5 and is hasn't disappointed me yet!
