  • Everyone was just saved from the rant I just wrote. Went to hit post and I had went way over the maximum. Long story short I fought mightily to dual boot a windows 11 machine with Ubuntu on a new laptop and ran into every Ubuntu bug possible. Found enough work arounds to make everything happen but I don't remember it being this hard the last time I had to do it

    Yes that fixed it for me as well. I think that I would have had a different experience if I had added a second ssd. Both windows and ubuntu want to do whole disk encryption. Probably a good thing but you have to undo bitlocker when to complete my dual boot. When I went to re-enable bitlocker I found that the home addition of windows is not going to allow encrypt individual volumes.

    I had a key for windows pro available so I updated to allow bitlocker to encrypt a volume. I saw in the forum someone was having a problem with the dual boot. If I had to guess they didn't decrypt windows before doing the dual boot. Dunno. Next time I buy a pc I will either try to get a deal by not wasting a windows license and just install my own linux OS or just wipe out windows. Just don't really need it.

    if you must use windows never use a real online account they just steal your data and sell it to advertisers even though you paid for windows
    use this login when installing windows to bypass online account:
    [email protected] password is anything you want but i always set it to fuckmicrosoft
    it will error out then continue with an offline account!!!!

    Like a crow chasing shiny objects I updated to ubuntu 22.04. In doing that I went down several rabbit holes. The over aggressive OOM service that was crashing things for me at random. Got that disabled. Then found I could not get jupyter labs to launch. Finally figuring out it was the way firefox was installed. I will not upgrade anything else into that mess. New is not always better.... ugh...

    Ubuntu 22.04 has its 'problems'.....thankfully the majority of them did not transfer to Linux mint 21, ....Including OOM. .Good work from the mint team saw to that.
    Jupyter is also available in the Linux Mint Software Manager.
    After fighting an OTP issue today I was reminded of something I learned years ago. Just because you are using NTP does not mean you can assume that your system clock will be correct. Since I made an assumption that time had to be correct I spent a couple hours trying fix everything else that wasn't broken....
