New Users / Re: Remove windows XP from dual boot setup
« on: Today at 03:50:45 pm »
Hi Ananta,
You must at first delete the WinXP partition and then update your grub. It is simple.
  • Boot your linux as usual
  • Run gparted. If yout don't have one, you can install it from Software manager or directly from terminal window: sudo apt install gparted
  • Find your XP partition(s). Right click on it and select delete, then apply all operations. BTW Because your linux system is mounted, you cannot make any harm to your linux system.
  • Close gparted, open a terminal window then type: sudo update-grub. Your XP will be eliminated.
Good luck  :)

OK I guess it but the last chance is to try a clean live media. If it prevail then you can
trace the problem by comparing suspicious files both your os / live os
make a clean install - reinstall and do not forget to make some kinda of saves before any upgrading - fsarchiver, timehift and so on.

Sorry m8, no more idea... Before try from live media, at least give a chance to 4.18.0-21  kernel... Just for curiosity...

Hi, do you mean that without an active firewall it is all OK? Am I right? If not, maybe this helps: one of my computers is an old ASUS K50IJ Notebook and this one cannot connect to WiFi above 4.18.0-21 kernel, so I had to stick to that version.
Another test: if you try to run a live media with a clean PepperMint Ten, does it works or not?

Sorry for misreading.

My hosts file after clean install (in VirtualBox) contains:

Spoiler (click here to view / hide)   localhost   username-machinename

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1     ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters

Nothing else. IMHO it worth a try to switch off the advert blocker and delete the rest lines. They will be populated again when you switch it on again. Don't forget to make backup, say,  hosts.ORIG !

What kind of problem lead to kernel update? Maybe you don't need it. If it happened automatically, at the start you can choose an earlier kernel version. If it does the trick, you can stick to that kernel version, no need to go ahead.

1) did you wipe out the HDD before installing (IMHO it is recommeded)
2) during installation, you have to check carefully where the grub will be put (/sda recommended, without any number after sda)
3) did you test the integrity of the installer file (I mean SHA etc., recommended also)
4) I suggest check the above and try once more. Let us know what happened.

As an addition to your start script you can add an offset (left and upper) like this:

Code: [Select]
sakura -c 110 -r 20 --geometry 95x95+30+35

In this case, 95x95 has no any affect but it is a must have setting, but the latter sets an offset 30 pixels from left and 35 pixels from the top.

Hi, instead of struggling with Rufus you can try EasyToBoot, I am using it for years without any problem:

Hi, I use NetBeans but IMHO there's no major difference.  Try to take the ownership of the related stuff using chown.

New Users / Re: Problem with dual boot on HP laptop
« on: July 11, 2019, 04:28:23 am »
... In it's infinite wisdom, HP decided to not have the function keys accessible only when pressing the Fn key, but also requires on to press two keys in succession in order to get to the setup/bios screen...
First of all: As PcNetSpec said, there is no need to use the function keys to control dual-boot. But if for somewhat reason you want to use the function keys like on a desktop PC, you can change its behavior in BIOS.

Hi Mark,
it works on my Asus K50IJ laptop , cheers.

The netmask 255 means that all the 8 bytes are set. 24 means that three of them are set, i.e. = 8byte x 8byte x 8byte x 0byte = 24 It is the same thing simply another style of info.
If you switch off your router for a few seconds and then restart, IMHO the obsolete will vanish.
