Got rid of Butter FS (I always forget to do  that) and about 70-80 other abandoned packages  8)

Knocked another 1/2 second off the boot time...

Hi perknh,

Nice work!!  ;) I think I'll give this a test run myself.

Thanks for sharing the info!  :)

GNU/Linux Discussion / Re: Cloning Hard drives refresher course
« Last post by pin on Today at 01:06:53 am »
Hi alynur!
There might be other tools to do this, but yes, dd should work.
There're a few things, though...

-Back-up your data!
-The target  drive should be larger than the origin drive. This seems to be your case.
-Extra space on the target will be unused space. You can use gparted from a live-usb to fix that afterwards.
-Why bother with partions? dd will overwrite everything!
-Why using a block size of 64k? Any reason for this? 1M will do it!
-Be aware that it will take some time. I nearly always, use dd to create my bootable usbs, in these cases 1GB takes about 3 to 5min. Copying 250GB will take a loooong time.
-You might want to add conv=fsync  to the command to flush data to disk after the write.

NOTE: I've never used dd to write such a large amount of data, so I have no clue how this will work and, above all, how long it will take!

Wouldn't it be easier/faster to, back-up your data and config files and, do a fresh install?
I am sorry. I guess I was not able to clarify my thoughts. It was rather late and I was tired after trying to sort this install out.

 1. The mobo supports UEFI and legacy. I went into BIOS and changed between Legacy and UEFI to see it that would fix the issue. ( I also chose between legacy and UEFI from the boot menu for the usb-sticks I have pep-9 currently on.)
 2. Pep-9 will boot and install on the computer, but after reboot; I get a message asking for an OS or reboot. I don't even get a grub menu.
 3. If boot from a USB stick running say Xubuntu? I can see the pep-9 partions on the hard drive. Everything is there. But no matter what I do? I cannot get the hard drive install to boot.
 4. Currently said desktop is running PopOS fine with LVM encryption with no worries after many updates and reboots.

 ~Thanks for any help gents.
GNU/Linux Discussion / Cloning Hard drives refresher course
« Last post by alynur on March 19, 2019, 09:52:43 pm »
Hello Peppermint people. I just want to be sure I'm going to do this right. I currently have a 250gb UEFI hard drive installed in my desktop.  I am going to replace it with a 500gb Hard drive. I'm planning on installing the new hard drive where the optical drive is, or at least use it's sata and power cables for this operation. So first of all, while in Peppermint, I'll run gparted and create  a GPT partition table in the new hard drive, or is that even necessary? I should then get a  disc ID such as sdb.  According to what I've found, I can then reboot into a live session and run in the terminal either
Code: [Select]
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=64k
Code: [Select]
sudo ddrescue -v /dev/sda /dev/sdb
   of course I'll have to ensure ddrescue is installed for this method.
How am I doing, is this correct? Am I missing anything? This is my first time doing something like this so I just want a little assurance. Once I'm done, I'll take the 250gb hard drive and put it into my laptop and I'll have SSD's in both my computers. Thanks guys.   :)

Hey, Chief, check out this slip-of-the-tongue. Maybe, you can sue this Android 10 reviewer   :D

This isn't the first time I've heard someone say "Peppermint". Google really blew that one...
