Installation / Re: Update error
« on: March 01, 2016, 02:44:42 am »
No, it's to do with secureboot module (driver) signing.

Is this a UEFI system ? .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS

Code: [Select]
mick@mick-Inspiron-1501 ~ $ [ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo UEFI || echo BIOS
BIOS

I was pretty sure it was but best to be certain  ;)

So inlight of these last two posts PCNetSpec would I be correct in believing this has no relevance for my system & as far as you can see the kernel updates were installed correctly?

Hello Again PCNetSpec regarding my last post are those "err-11"s due to the packages being unauthenticated? :-\

Are you sure it was an ERROR message ?

Yes pretty sure - I cancelled the installation as it was downloading - I think  :-\

Here's what I think is the relevant portion of  /var/log/syslog that may help:

Can't see any problem there .. the latest 3.16.0-62 kernel and supporting packages seem to have installed properly :)

All looks well then  :)  As a layman I'd like to be able to say that that seemed to be the case when I saw the outputs from the commands you suggested but there was no way that i was so  thank you again PCNetSpec. As I mentioned in my OP when I realised what I had done & cancelled the installation an error message popped up which I didn't catch - is there anywhere that this would be logged so I could see what it said?

Thanks Andy - everyday's a school day  ::)

Hope this is correct will re-post with the image uploaded  ;)

I noticed some updates available last night in the update manager so opened it up. There were 4 but there was a warning message that they weren't authenticated so despite the high security status of them I was going to wait & find some more information about the warning before installing - however I got distracted & inadvertently started the installation process. I cancelled the process but the manager installed the update with an error message which I didn't catch. I am pretty sure the error occurred only on the first of the four its the one highlighted:



 Please could you advise me what to do.
Cheers

What are you running Peppermint on? / Peppermint 6 on Dell Inspiron 1501
« on: February 21, 2016, 01:20:49 pm »
Hello this is my first post after installing your wonderful OS on my not so bleeding edge laptop. I was running Slitaz 4 which was pretty good & exceedingly fast, as long as the application wasn't too heavy - for e.g. Firefox which often hung & crashed, also it required a fair bit of researching to get things to work & a lot of the software packages were quite old, though whether that is a bad thing I'm not 100% on.
Anyway I decided I wanted a changed & after a good look around, reading & watching reviews I ended up here & boy am I impressed. I have really only used Win XP, Win 7 & Slitaz 4 but to have such a good functioning OS on this old laptop is brilliant so many thanks.

These are my Hardware Specs:

Originally I had only 512MB RAM & I was struggling multi-tasking so I did a cheap upgrade to 2GB, which is the maximum for this old girl, & its much better.

Also initially I couldn't connect to WiFi but after researching this excellent forum & reading "CAN'T CONNECT WIFI(SOLVED)" in the Networking section of Support - specically http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,2879.15.html & following PCNetSpec's instructions in reply #15 the problem was solved - so thank you for that.

So although its only been a couple of weeks I'm  a happy bunny & glad to be a Pepperminto  ;)
