  1. The closest to Redhat is Fedora. Fedora is the community version of RHEL.
  2. New drive showing up after update

    those partitions are usually created for recovery media in case you ever need to do a restore. you may need to use diskpart to remove it
  3. Error using lemon mint

    if your laptop was making a buzzing sound before the issue then you might have a failed disk. also the errors in the screen point to a disk problem. try loading a live usb, mounting the hard drive and running fsck
  4. what is storage area network

    the big difference is that a NAS is a single machine that shares files to multiple others on a network. A SAN is often a cluster of multiple machines that can pool thier disks so that filesystems can be more flexible in thier ability to grow, be backed up, etc. A NAS is usually a cheap solution for network storage and is best when you just need a place to store files. SAN's have many more features and are usually considered more stable, however are more complex and expensive. SAN's are generally used when you want to mount a filesystem to a server and be able to run an OS/applications off of it.
  5. 3D Printer Slicing Issue

    Sometimes theres errors in the 3D stl file that causes problems when you go to slice them. Some slicers have an option to repair the stl and that can fix some issues. Theres also applications that can do this as well, though i cant remember the names, Its been awhile since i did any printing.
  6. Dual Boot Help

    you will need to boot into a live usb, mount the boot partition to /boot, and then run grub-install. This should properly create the boot partition of the disk and place in all the needed grub files. Then you regenerate your grub config and you should be done. Make sure you have the os-prober package installed otherwise grub might not find windows. arch wiki has tons of info https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GRUB
  7. Unusual Dual-booting Dilema

    Yeah usually the virtual gpu is pretty poor. You might be able to get some better performance by instead using an RDP or a VNC server on the VM. This way the screen is not actually rendered by the VM but is done by the machine connecting into the VM.
  8. Dual Boot Help

    i think there is some confusion here. grub is a bootloader. It is what performs the task of choosing which operating system to boot into. You cant replace "Windows" with grub, you replace the windows bootloader. The windows bootloader will only boot to windows, it does not support any other OS, grub is capable of booting into most OSes. You have a few options here, Stick with one boot loader which is grub. If you have only one disk for your operating systems then this is your only option. On boot you choose which operating system you want to start. If you have more than one disk then you can have a separate boot loader on each. You can leave the windows boot loader on the disk with windows and put grub on the disk with ubuntu. This way you will always need to change the order of the boot drive to choose which os you go into.
  9. you install to an external drive the same way you would do any other, the computer cant tell the difference. Make sure that the drive you get can use the full thunderbolt/usb3 speeds otherwise you will see very poor performance. Your best bet is like everyone else has said and install on the internal drive. also if your intention is just to learn linux and not use it as your daily driver the best bet is to use a virtual machine. dual booting introduces a headache that turns most people trying to learn off of linux
  10. on a bare metal installation that usually means that the live usb was not created properly. the iso could be damaged, try to redownload the iso and use the md5 hash to make sure it was downloaded completely.
  11. the uefi menu shows any partitions that it detects that support uefi booting not necessarily the independent drives. Select the uefi os and you should get into the os you are looking for.
  12. are you following the arch install guide? Was your old bootloader legacy and you are trying to install the uefi version? uefi bootloaders can only be installed to a gpt partition and have different size/block structures to legacy bootloaders which use mbr. The new arch installation guide isnt very good, try to look up the old version of the beginners guide. There is alot more information in that one.
  13. Dual Boot Help

    what boot order are you trying to change? The order that the options show up on grub? You can change that (and other things) from the grub.cfg
  14. i know there is a command decode-dimms but ive personally never used it, dont know what kind of info it will give you.
  15. /proc has all the info you need about the system. /proc/meminfo should have what you need. Also theres /proc/cpuinfo as well if you need it.
