  1. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Will a 2009 Sys76 Wild Dog boot to UEFI?

    The only way to really answer this question is to try it, so I did. And it worked. I installed a new 18.04 Ubuntu-MATE on a USB-connected removable SSD drive, and got it to successfully install in...

    Thanks, I'll read your 'further tips' link (looks like lots to read there).

    One thing that confuses me about your mention of "EFI" or "EFI partition" -- Doesn't "EFI" -- or anything to do with...
  6. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Installer wants to put extra partitions on a new SSD

    Thanks for the response. FYI, I tried to do this yesterday on a different SSD, and I did end up specifically with extra partitions:

  7. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Installer wants to put extra partitions on a new SSD

  13. [SOLVED] Re: I changed router's password, now I can't access it with old OR new password

    Here's how I solved this problem.

    I knew the router accepted passwords of at least 33 characters, since that was the length of my old password.

  15. [SOLVED] Re: I changed router's password, now I can't access it with old OR new password

    I was previously able (a year ago) to ssh into the router with a key, passwordlessly. I still have the key. I think I deliberately made that hard to do because I'd be rarely using it, and using the...

  20. [SOLVED] Re: libqt5core5a dependency conflict in 16.04

    Would ppa-purge work if the PPA that the 5.6.1 libqt5core5a came from has already been removed from software sources? Perhaps then I'd need to run purge for that PPA even though it may have been...
  21. [SOLVED] Re: libqt5core5a dependency conflict in 16.04
