      Hi Wiz...been waiting a response to my lost post & screenshot to our ongoing project. Realized tonight that after I prepared my own reply that I may have failed to actually hit 'POST'...duhhh!

      Wiz :

      I have made no progress with my scrambled eggs Ubuntu in my hp laptop. I have not been able to even reboot to get this mess under control. I need to find out two things: (1) how can I get Ubuntu to move the entire contents of the built in hard drive to my 350 gb external hard drive, and (2) how can I get the 18.10 to mount?


      Thanks for your help,
      tpick (Tom).

      Hi Wiz. Good news is I had the new 1TB internal SSD installed. Even lent them my new factory 18.3 thumb drive to install. Bad news is they used an 18.1 Mint the apparently had in their shop not wanting to use mine and follow my instructions. So all our hard work and planning got set aside and nothing on my monitor is familiar. I can't even find Timeshift. Can you help, Chris?

        Sure Dick, we'll start a new Thread for you, could be in General. I have to check a couple of things, keep your eyes open for a Conversation coming your way, you should be notified. May take a day. Cheers, Wiz

      Sorry mate, but I could not find the correct section about hardware, so I posted my question here.

      I have a AMD A10-5800k APU and had a graphics card with 2 GB RAM, which fan started action up by making noises and spinning erratically. I then removed the graphics card and play games with the APU only.

      Does the APU use RAM, when I play games?

      Hi , Let's say I want to uninstall a package in centos. I used yum remove command and it shows the package are removed . However, I still see the files are there. So I understand that uninstalling does not remove the package and files together the way we uninstall in windows. Is that correct?

      Sorry if my question is too naive, I am a newbie.

      Hi Chris...I can see you've been enjoying life. Good for you! When you have some time I'd like for you to look at my latest posts and suggest my next steps for setting up and using the separate internal SSD (blank now) in my Toshiba.

        Thank you, my friend :) No Pi, but good food coming up:). On your cup - Star Trek came to TV in Australia in July 1967 and I have been a fan ever since. Best wishes to your family. Wiz

      I was wondering if you could tell me which one of the tutorials has the most CLI terms and commands to start out with? Please?

      Almost chose Mint 19 with Cinnamon. But from my research I found that I like KDE more than GNOME. Also heard Mint MATE had KDE 2 which seemed better than 3. And after all that, I forgot to check if Kubuntu was K2 or 3. Still like it so far.

      Hey there. Thanks. I appreciate it. I'm still wandering around trying to get my bearings. I've some experience with PCs but I am new to Linux.
      So, I have Kubuntu 18.10. Was searching for KDE + like Ubuntu, Kubuntu was a no-brainer.

        "I'm still wandering around trying to get my bearings." I've been here 19 months and I am still finding gems and pearls. Go to Getting Started and start a new Thread (r-hand side), copy and paste what you have asked me. Our Admin @Rob is the Tutorial Guru and can advise. Cheers

      Wizard having Internet dropouts, may be unavailable. I'd turn my ISP into toads but I'm not sure how they'd go with their keyboards then.

      Hi What recommendations do you have for an absolute Linux beginner who feels Windows 10 has forced me to look to an alternative OS?

        Hi Shaun and welcome to linux.org :) . Go to https://www.linux.org/forums/getting-started.148/ and at the right hand side choose Start Thread and repeat your question. Someone will be along soon, may include me (sipping on a Sunday morning coffee in Oz)

      hi,
      What modules do you recommend in linux for a DNS server that uses a graphical panel for register a record(such as CloudFlare) and use database (for example, MySQL) instead of zone File?

      4000km road trip? That’s how to do it.
