My isp, Plus.Net, is my interface but it is an OpenReach man that comes to fix it when it stops...

Inability to Connect to High Speed Broadband.

I have a three year? old HP laptop with an AMD processor. SolydX and Solydk 9 are installed and are reasonably up to date. When I bought the laptop and loaded it up with Solydxk the wifi found itself and I merely had to label it. My broadband is known to work with visiting computers. I live in rural...

Re: Not sure if grub will work on reboot

(Say /dev/sdx)) This should restart your machine where you are now and enable you to read the other boot alternatives. If something hits th...

Re: rebuild boot menu

This is my 'procedure' The new distro writes its own grub boot. With luck it will give you access to other systems already installed. Without luck I use SuperGrb2 which gives you access to all available systems. Select the system that you want as the primary boot and boot into it. Then as root do "u...

Re: SolydXK on Social Media

We suffer from unsolicited telephone calls often with accents from the Indian sub-continent. The guilty parties are probably using information gleaned/stolen from the telephone company.
