Do you get offered the GRUB boot menu at system bootup (ie. just after the BIOS POST screen) ?

If not, does the GRUB menu appear if you hit the Shift key immediately after the BIOS POST screen ?



Once at the GRUB menu, scroll down and select "Advanced", then hit enter.

Now scroll to the linux-image-4.15.0-23-generic boot option, and hit enter to boot it.

Does that kernel ?

Well as they're killing off all the 32bit software packages I guess that kills off Peppermint 32bit ISO's (beyond PM10) :(

MX (via Debian) are likely to be getting a few more users soon .. they'll be one of the few left with 32bit ISO's

This is an older but very enthusiastic review by Mirco Lang for the German magazine Tutnaut:

He recommends Peppermint for people who want to switch from Windows or Mac.

I see I hit the jackpot with this tread.  You know all these years I've been using Peppermint, I never thought to look what mirror I was using until yesterday. :-[

Well I've found a nearby mirror in Maine, and so far, knock on wood, everything's back to working like a charm.  I've updated and upgraded today without issue. :)

As a side note, Cisco's OpenDNS FamilyShield works very well.  I don't believe it's as private (or as secure for that matter) as Quad9 when used along with Stubby, but its free family shielding service is second to none.  I imagine Stubby has to be impacting my home's DNS performance to a minimal degree.  After all we're in the States and Stubby's servers are located in the Netherlands.

Thank you, gentlemen, for all your thoughts and insights here.  They've helped a great deal.

LMAO :)) If you had said that you were using Open DNS I think I'd of been able to of worked it out too. Though ordinarily as in ordinary, or normal run of the mill Internet, would of just been changing mirrors. To change mirrors for you and everyone else reading this.

Open
Code: [Select]
menu/Settings/Software&Updates

Then this window should appear though yours won't necessarily say United Kingdom, it will be where ever you are in the world.


Left Click arrow in the box next to Download From, the one with the name of your Country of Internet provider.

Choose Other in the drop down box
This should pop up.
 

You can either left click Select Best Server or select one from the list that is from your Country of Internet provider.
 You will have to put your password in in order for Internet provider to change and when you click close it will scan for updates, just like it will whilst finding Best provider. Sometimes this happens to me, that for some odd reason the download speed goes slow. Either too many people downloading the same updates at the same time, or maintenance fixes from main server can have an affect on speed too, as all these mirrors are in affect downloading from main server and rerouting it to faster mirrors. Hope this helped? And everyone else who might experience problems in the future.  ;D

General Discussion / Ubuntu Devs Detail Plan for 32-bit Support in Ubuntu 19.10
« Last post by VinDSL on September 17, 2019, 10:43:01 pm »

Ubuntu developers have detailed the process by which 32-bit library and app compatibility will be maintained in Ubuntu 19.10 and up.

You may recall that Ubuntu planned to drop the 32-bit archive fully in Ubuntu 19.10 ó if you donít, I didnít know holidays on the moon were a thing ó only to u-turn following user outcry.

The sheer scale of the community reaction to their plans (which had been public knowledge for a while) coupled with Valve disavowing Ubuntu support should things come to pass, quickly induced a rethink.

Hail a weasel ?

Oh sorry, ermine :-[

The 'weasel' got rid of the orphaned inode problem I was having with the mainline kernel - that's all I care about.

Actually, I suspect it was the updated linux-libc-dev headers that worked a treat, but who's to say?

An ermine, by any other name, is just as sweet   ;)

Something wicked happened resolving 'ppa.launchpad.net

I doubt if changing the mirrors will help.

Whilst it could theoretically be at the launchpad end, if it were I'd expect everyone using a PPA would be seeing this .. and I'm not, I'd wonder more if it were some slowness/weirdness in my DNS setup.

Wow -- amazing detective work, Sherlock, AMAZING! :o   While our grandson was with us over the summer, I had set us up with OpenDNS' FamilyShield.  But, soon after he left, we returned to using Stubby.  I made the switch several weeks ago and, quite frankly, I had forgotten all about it.

Thanks so much, PCNetSpec.  We can live with this mild inconvenience.  Overall, at least for us in the States, I think using Stubby is worth it.  We don't have the digital privacy rights that most Europeans have.  Who knows what data and other nonsense our ISPs are trying to collect on us these days? ::)

Thank you.

Hi VinDSL,

If we can't figure this out, maybe I'll try that. Thanks ;)
