    I'm not sure what's different in Mint, other than Mint being a real desktop based on Ubuntu 12.10 (instead of 12.04). I've installed the same ppa's for grub and btrfs-tools. They're both running...

    Re: GRUB Problems "error: unknown filesystem"

    I'm booting to the boot-rescue CD, which is a live CD running Ubuntu 13.04, so no catch-22. When I boot, it's saying no such device, not a failure to read/mount device (not sure what that would look...

    Re: GRUB Problems "error: unknown filesystem"

    I'm getting a little closer. I can reinstall grub2, but now, when I boot, it's telling me "error: no such device: <UUID for md0>." Hopefully this makes the problem easier to fix. I'm guessing md0...

    [ubuntu] Re: SSD or HDD?

    I second the idea of getting both or even substituting the hard drives with a good NAS server (possibly self-built). You'll want to make sure the SSD is mounted as "/" and maybe used for a swap...

    Not really, it's still the 3.63 version that looks like it is getting rolled forward into 10.10, which will make 2 years with the same release of the software, when 3.86 and 4.01 are both out.

  14. [SOLVED] Re: Is it just me or does Google Chrome's scrolling lag?

    Yeah, I only have a 3.4 GHz Core 2 Quad w/ 6GB RAM and a GeForce 8600 GT, so of course Chrome's scrolling is rather slow (don't blame my old hard drive, there's no access going on). It could be that...
