    Re: The New Apple M1 Chip

    Well, just like the hackentosh, it will eventually happen. I've been an Ubuntu user for years and haven't used the macOS much at all. But, I'm amazed at how similar they look and act. They even,...

  5. Re: Confused about memory max for my laptop Dell E6420

    Thank you, I have all that documentation. My question was why DMIDECODE reports 16GB as the maximum since it gets it information from the mother board.

  7. Confused about memory max for my laptop Dell E6420

  9. Re: Terminal Command to determine how much video ram I have

    Thanks again. According to that, there is only about 300mb going to VRAM.. Not much. But, Cinelerra GG seens to run fairly well. I can't afford a higher end laptop right now (spent too much on the...
  10. Re: Terminal Command to determine how much video ram I have

    Thanks, CelticWarrior

    I was afraid of that because there is no setting in the BIOS to adjust what is shared. Nothing to do but just try it, I guess and see the results.

    Thanks again

  13. Re: What happens if I disable secure boot on a Windows to set up a dual boot?

    Thanks for the replies. As I mentioned above, I got it sorted. But, I'll mention that the only ISO on DVD I had available was Mint 19.3. That may be too old for Microsoft to have signed, and that...
  14. Re: What happens if I disable secure boot on a Windows to set up a dual boot?

    Thanks for your help. Finally figured it out. It was in fact the secure boot. It was attempting authenticate the Linux boot disk and of course it couldn't, so it just booted the hard drive. I...
  15. Re: What happens if I disable secure boot on a Windows to set up a dual boot?

    Thank you for your reply, but the issue is I can only boot from the hard drive, not from any other installation media. I have the boot order set to boot from the DVD drive first, USB second and hard...

    Re: Failed NAS

    Thanks CelticWarrior

    I assumed that to be the case. I'd also heard that about Seagate, but only after I already had the drive. It's not a major disaster as I have the date backed up but it will...
