You will not have any issues, assuming that you format the USB as FAT32 or NTFS (native to Windows, but which Linux Mint can handle) and not ext4 or btrfs (native to Linux, but that Windows cannot handle out of the box). The backward slashes/forward slashes are a display artefact when printing a full path, they are not actually on the disc (just the ...

Most current operating are multitasking and use virtual memory and therefore use swap. For example, this Linux question Why use swap when there is more than enough free space in RAM? and this OSX question Why would I disable swap file in Mac OS X? Yes, most Operating systems will create a swap during default installation. Yes, most operation systems will ...

Most OS installers including the Ubuntu/Debian installer will create and enable a swap partition if you select all of the default options in the installer, in particular if you use automatic/guided partitioning. If you use manual partitioning at installation time or if you retain the partition table that already exists on the disk, then it's up to you ...

The ability to swap in Linux is dependent on configuration of a disk partition or a sufficiently large (specially formatted) file on an active mounted partition to operate. Generally when a system is semi-automatically installed there is one swap partition created, configured and put into the /etc/fstab file for use. OSX being a UNIX/Linux off-shoot is ...

Try any other answers first You could just set up a server that mirrors the main Ubuntu download server [maybe with apt-mirror - haven't tried this] and modify your /etc/apt/sources.list to download from the local server.

To my knowledge no distro uses peer-to-peer for downloading packages. If you have lots of computers running the same Linux distribution most package management systems allow you to run your own repositories and mirrors. This is useful if you have a slow internet connection or if you have a very large amount of machines running the same distribution. I did a ...

Ok, per request, I'm answering my own question: I tried every single available and provided command. In the original post are both links I found while trying to solve this and links provided with possible solutions. The answer of Firelord, even though wasn't useful, is the more insightful for this kind of problems. It seemed that the problem was with ...

As @Celeo shared I think you chances are small. What you should have done before installation are two things :- a. Make a backup of the content on the D drive before doing that. b. Make D partition smaller and then make E which is free, blank and has nothing. Then when you install choose E to install Ubuntu or whichever GNU/Linux distribution you want to ...

Since it's a centOS question with a permission issue, don't forget that by default Selinux is activated, thus you should have a look to the permission of the directory with: ls -Z

Are you talking about something that only you will be using, or do you have a larger user population?  If it's just you, try making a symbolic link called var in your home directory on the server pointing to /var; e.g., ln -s /var /home/adambrown_ftp/var Of course you can do this for multiple users, but then you have the management problems of how you do ...

Now bind "sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev && sudo mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts && sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc ...

You need to be certain whether the Windows loader is intact and readable by Linux or not in order to try Linux specific recovery. If you're certain that Linux Mint installation went fine and is working good, open the Terminal, and type sudo os-prober, alternatively, you can press TAB key two times after writing os to see what is the actual command for ...

Advantage 1 of sym-link (transparency): Only management software has to know of the existence of sym-links. They just work. Shortcuts only work if the software trying to open them knows that they are a short cut. Advantage 2 of sys-link (chainable): A sym-link will allow a link to a link to a link … 3: They are often stored in the inode (this may not ...

I have figured out how to speed up Samba. Alone Samba is actually more tuned then I have realized. I stopped trying to tune the software itself and stepped backed and looked at my hardware. I noticed my Samba server was only running a 10/100 Ethernet port. I bought and installed a 10/100/1000 along with the 10/100/1000 router and all Cat 6 cables. Now my ...
