Noon question. If I were to follow us instructors and setup a data partition, would windows be able to read it? I have my setup as windows 10 and PM dual boot

So I'm thinking about setting it up like this

Win10 40Gb
/boot 400mb
/ 40Gb
/mnt/DATA 390 GB
/swap 8Gb

Going to reinstall Windows clean first then work on the partitions for PM7. Is there anything else I should keep in mind?

Got it. Well, then I guess I can wait till i have more time on my hands to back up a few things first.  PM6 is still awesome.  But some of the screen shots for PM7 have me drooling...   :P

New Users / upgrade from PM6 to PM7
« on: August 25, 2016, 07:28:14 pm »
I was doing some random browsing and found that there was PM&???!!  :o  Oh happy birthday to me :D

I am currently running PM6 dualboot with Win10 (I haven't use windows in about a year but can't seem to breakup with it, I have the opposite of commitment issues, just can't let go/break the bad news?) So how should I upgrade to PM7 without loosing files in PM6?  Tried to do forum search the best I can but no luck. Thought that I can't be the only guy with this question so thought that I raise my hand.

Thanks always.

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: emachines E725 - PM6 32 bit

Thanks!  It's been working for a bit and the connection doesn't drop.  I test it out on the USB drive before installing PM6.

Running PM6 32 bit on emachines E725.  Output from inxi -F

almost everything worked after installation. Only needed to install wireless card with some help.

That is one of the selections.  Here are the 4 available in the submenu

Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-62-generic
Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-62-generic (recovery mode)
Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-46-generic
Peppermint GNU/Linux, Linux 3.16.0-46-generic (recovery mode)


So I thought I just select 3.16.0-46-generic and see what happens.  I was able to boot into PM6.  I did all the updates apt-get (update, upgrade, dist-upgrade), saw a few error messages during the upgrade (broken installation, error for missing folders, ect) but all three was completed successfully.  Gave it a restart and this time it automatically boot in PM6.  Installed the wireless driver and it seems to be working now.  So did PM6 fixed itself?   :-\   Awesome  :o

Used the bootable USB and used Gparted to check /dev/sdb5 which is the PM6 partition.  No errors.  I did noticed that in Gparted, it sees the USB boot drive as sda1 and the hard drive as sdb.

here is the output from grub.cfg

Got it !

I don't even know what we are talking about anymore  8)

Prank call, prank call.....

No worries .. personally I just use Kodi for everything.

Just figured out Kodi, It is freaking awesome!!  :o

Should I have concerns about ISP tracking?  Do you use a VPN when running kodi?

refers to 304f9334-ff85-4621-b726-f336fe96e33f

so the full error msg now reads:

Gave up waiting for root device. Common problems:
 - Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
  - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
  - Check root= (did the system wait for the right device?)
 - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/304f9334-ff85-4621-b726-f336fe96e33f does not exist.
Dropping to a shell!

BusyBox v1.21.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.21.0-1ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.


Yes, Grub does pull up. 2.02~beta I think.  I can select win7 and boot successfully.  Selecting PM6 gives me the same error as before

I am just not sure if hte uuid referred serial number is the same

Yep, same error. I was pretty sure that's how I tried to install PM6 the first time.   :-\

If i use Cntl+alt+del I would get the same error message i posted before.

I booted using the live USB and ran the two commands you asked me to post before:

Ok, I am going to delete all the partitions and leave it as unallocated space using gparted.  Then, I will reinstall PM6 and use the "install besides Windows" option and not manually allocate space.

I will update after that is done.

I think one is suppose to be boot and the other one is boot.  I use the install besides Windows 7 option the first time and had this error.  I reinstall it using the manual option and got the same thing.  Now I think about it... /boot was suppose to be ext 3 wasn't it?
