    After successfully installing 3 OS partitions on a multi-boot laptop with the 4th OS destroyed the GRUB multi-boot menu

    Thanks Andy, had a couple of Spammers to hammer and then headed straight here. I am back for the foreseeable future now, and have not been idle. I installed antiX 19.2, and also installed Sparky Linux Game Over (same as Len's), as I considered it likely that my installation of Sparky Linux by...

    The Linux software that users should know about

    Not singling out my good friend @f33dm3bits , but if we can have a short description of the software volunteered, that would be helpful. For example, on bashtop Resource monitor that shows usage and stats for processor, memory, disks, network and processes. As Loren is doing. This way readers...

    useless

    :) G'day @ironsniper1 and welcome to linux.org :) We're not giving you the brushoff and we hope you'll come back here with an answer we can add to our Wiki. What Nelson and Darren have said above is good advice. Rockedge is being advocated as the Puppy place to go to, in particular since...

    I'm drunk a quarter of the time

    You already have a wonderful quote from a scientist I admired immensely from my childhood - in your signature. Philosophy and Psychology are intricately connected. Perhaps you are more of a psychologist than you give yourself credit for? Chris

    After successfully installing 3 OS partitions on a multi-boot laptop with the 4th OS destroyed the GRUB multi-boot menu

    Morning all, you put a little too much faith in me. So far all I seem to be doing is to be eliminating possibilities. Although when you eliminate enough of the possibilities of what is going wrong, you can be left with the probability of what will work right (paraphrasing a bit there, lol). I...

    Just remember that you opened the door to this subject :) You could either have nil replies, or you can expect to get some friendly advice. This forum comprises a community where people can come to "know each other" albeit in a cyber fashion, and a lot of us come to care about each other's...

    Cloud vs Local

    Old Tom (& welcome, Tolkien fan :)) just a heads up, if you are new and have less than 20 posts or so under your belt, and insert a link, it will be held up as a potential spammer and come across my desk for approval. Given I am in Australia, you may be waiting hours. Cheers Chris Turner...

    After successfully installing 3 OS partitions on a multi-boot laptop with the 4th OS destroyed the GRUB multi-boot menu

    No offence taken, but it won't work, and may bork Len's Windows. Those first 4 partitions are a standard I have seen with many manufacturers, who make four partitions for Windows (usually on a BIOS/MBR rig, to make it difficult to install another OS, in this case Linux. Len's rig, though is...

    Regrets on the delays Len, getting late again. Serious work on your tomorrow, I expect, but I believe we are headed up the garden path - my fault for not focusing in the area needing the most attention. And that is the USB stick - UEFI/CSM area. I will explain as we go along. Can you provide...
