Installation / Re: Install Peppermint 6 over 5?
« on: June 09, 2015, 08:35:47 pm »
OK guys. Thanks for the replies. I have to get myself psyched for installing Peppermint6 so we'll see how it goes. Everything is working well on my laptop so hate to mess with it. And then sometimes I just feel like  :-\. When I feel ready I'll make the jump to Peppermint 6. Thanks again.

Hello again. I know for sure Peppermint 5 is on /dev/sda6 if that helps. Booted into Peppermint and got the following from sudo blkid:

Code: [Select]
/dev/sda1: UUID="ffc653cc-4e9a-4287-a6fb-683465888e16" TYPE="ext4" 
/dev/sda5: UUID="c6b4dad9-7ba9-4517-bdb9-d46bce1da4b8" TYPE="swap"
/dev/sda6: UUID="6682fa25-4a65-4d89-9915-112c7bfafd48" TYPE="ext4"

OK Output of gedit /etc/fstab is:

Code: [Select]
# /etc/fstab: static file system information.

# Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a
# device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices
# that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).

Thanks for the replies.

Installation / Install Peppermint 6 over 5? (Solved)
« on: June 09, 2015, 12:44:21 am »
Can Peppermint 6 be installed over Peppermint 5? I have downloaded the .iso for version 6 and have a working live USB stick with 6 on it. My hard drive is a dual boot with Peppermint5 and Linux Mint. Would I have to reformat the partition with version 5 and then install 6 or just install 6 over 5? Thanks in advance for the help.

Finally success! The computer gods have smiled down on me. Followed your instructions above and all went well. Thanks so much for your time and help. I'm not even sure what I did differently this time but I can now connect to my wireless internet. I'll do my best to not mess up my installation this time.

Hello, thanks for the reply. I do have a working installation of Linux Mint on another partition. I'll download the files and follow your instructions and see what happens. A couple things if it helps, my new install of Peppermint is from the same ISO file I used in my original install and I didn't use gparted to reformat the partiton I used for Peppermint. Just did everything from the install.

Should have mentioned I can't connect to the internet if I don't have my wireless working. So I'm assuming I have no way to do the updates you suggest.

I noticed also during my newest install something about deleting fwcutter. If that makes a difference.

The only way I can connect to the Internet is wireless. I'm assuming I can't do an update or upgrade without being connected to the internet?

Well, got Peppermint reinstalled and everything seems to be working fine except my wireless internet. I had this problem the first time I installed Peppermint and posted about it here. Got it solved on the first install but when I tried the same thing on the new install didn't work. I think there are different file names on my original post about getting wireless internet working. Can you give me any help with this?

So I tried running the install again and want to ask about this before I do more damage. :) When I go to the page on the installer where it shows my partitions and then I try to continue with the install it says "no root file system found"? So how do I fix this? Also, how do I make sure Peppermint is installed in the correct partition?

My hard drive has one partition with Linux Mint, a smaller partition where I have Peppermint and a small swap partition. The Peppermint partition is formatted to ext4. I want to reinstall where my current Peppermint is installed and don't want to mess up my Mint install.

Thanks for the reply. I'll see how it goes as far as reformatting the partition for Peppermint. I don't think I'd be loosing anything by reformatting. Will check first. Most files I would want to keep or backup are on Linux Mint on the other partition.

I have two partitions on my hard drive. One already has Linux Mint. The other would be for Peppermint. I do have a small swap partition.

Hey, not a problem. It was my fault.  :(  My question now is can I just reinstall over the existing install? Or do I need to reformat. or what ever, and then reinstall Peppermint? Thanks again for the help.

Thanks for the fast reply. When I am on the log on screen the option for Peppermint on the icon you mention is gone. When things got messed up I tried reinstalling the Peppermint control center so I'm thinking that's where I made a mistake. Not really sure.
