I'm not in front of them at the moment.  I know they are business grade computers that I bought for a good price a few years ago. Mine are the smallest ones.  I know they came in different  sizes. For my needs they are perfect.

After watching English Bob's excellent videos on pep10 respin, I decided to give it another try. I use mainly xenialpup and bionicpup on my desktop computers. For me they are fast and simple.

My computers are refurbished hp8000 sff models. The small ones from around 2008. They have 4 GB of RAM.  One thing I will most likely do is reboot into openbox and play around there with tint2 etc... knowing  I can always log back into peppermint. I also love i3 so I will try that out as well.

Thanks Mark and the rest of the team for a gem of an Ubuntu based distro!!!

I deleted the entire drive and started over again. No dice so what I did was replace the drive with another one I had. Everything is fine now. I think what might have happened is that I was moving a partition to another location on the drive a few days ago and things haven't been the same since. Everything is fine now with the other drive. Thanks for your help anyway!! :)

When the error message comes up my two options are to click go back or continue. When I click continue, nothing happens.

I should be able to do this while in the peppermint installer without quitting and going into gparted?

I have installed Peppermint many times and this is the first time I see this error. I have reformatted the drive etc... and I still get this error. What should I do?

The partition /dev/sda2 assigned to / starts at an offset of 3584 bytes from the minimum alignment for this disk, which may lead to very poor performance.

Since you are formatting this partition, you should correct this problem now by realigning the partition, as it will be difficult to change later. To do this, go back to the main partitioning menu, delete the partition, and recreate it in the same position with the same settings. This will cause the partition to start at a point best suited for this disk.

Software & Applications / Download ICE application [SOLVED]
« on: July 05, 2017, 06:59:38 am »
In a previous post on this forum there is a link to a deb file for the ICE application. The app isn't there anymore. Is there another link I can access so that I can try ICE in another distro?

Like many Linux users I am caught up in distro hopping. It's fun and I like to learn but when all is said and done, Peppermint 7 for me gets the job done!! I do have a suggestion but maybe I should post it somewhere else?

I have several partitions on my drive which contain Mint 18, Fedora 25, Linux Mate. I like to see how they work and also if improves my workflow.

Great job from the Peppermint team!!!! :D

It looks like I solved it. Here is my new entry and it seems to work even after a reboot.

Code: [Select]

// /media/net1 cifs credentials=/home/randy/.smbmain,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0
// /media/net2 cifs credentials=/home/randy/.smbmain,uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0

I have two external USB drives hanging off my router/modem. I'm not sure how to properly enter them into my fstab. I can mount from the terminal, but I receive a message.

Code: [Select]
randy@hp80002 ~ $ sudo mount -a
[sudo] password for randy:
Password for root@// 
Password for root@//

Here is my fstab entry:

Code: [Select]
// /media/net1 cifs  uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0
// /media/net2 cifs  uid=1000,gid=1000,iocharset=utf8,sec=ntlm 0

There is no passord for these USB drives.

Yes it was my idea because I want to keep learing and this is so much fun for me. I'll check out the link you mentioned and if that won't work, I'll install another distro and see how that does. Thanks! :)

So far it didn't work. I followed your instructions and then burned the iso to a DVD. When I went to start the DVD, the Mac didn't recognize it and neither did my PC, so, I am going to start all over again until I get this right. I'm in Peppermint 7 respin on my PC now. I am going to:

1. Download a new copy of the 32bit Pep 7 respin and check the md5sum.
2. I am going to burn this to DVD to make sure it works on the PC.
3. I am going to follow your instructions for modifying the isolinux.cfg file and then burn that iso to a DVD and see if that works.
4. I will post back with my results.

You can see that I am very stubborn and goal driven!! I will make this work :)

Thanks again for the help!

I get this error when trying to save. Do I need root access?

Code: [Select]
Error opening file '/home/randy/.cache/.fr-jtCEVi/isolinux/isolinux.cfg': Permission denied

The file on disk may now be truncated!

Sorry I obviously didn't read your post correctly.
