Re: Jessie not playing nice with other distros (Rant)

Thanks just for the steps to 'disable' formatting swap in Debian installer. I have several multiboot machines, I seldom bothered about swap being formatted, I knew another distro always format swap. What about another 'work around'? just let debian installer format swap, or the user might not know a...

This is covered in Debian Wiki for Swap https://wiki.debian.org/Swap If you have multiboot, then it is less painful to NOT format swap during Debian installation, because after installation you change only one /etc/fstab :mrgreen: Note As of this writing with the Debian installer on the current stab...

Re: How Do I Rollback a Video Driver

After booting, I've never been able to see a desktop again. How do I revert back to my original working ATI driver? Or do I have to re-install the entire OS again? But the DDM recommended yet another proproprietary driver, so I trusted the DDM's recommendation (made that mistake with Mint before). ...

Re: Trouble installing SolydX-64 in UEFI-mode

1. How big should the EFI partition be, some say 200 MB others say it needs to be 550 MB, does it mater? What size are your EFI partitions? 100M is good enough. My asus, multiboot 15 distros, mostly UEFI, some bios-mode, the fat32 partition is less than 40% filled. by the way, if I let win7_64 deci...
