    Baffled about Q4OS wifi

    You are absolutely right, and I did. I went with Manjaro. Debian 10 works fine and has a wifi step in setup that works fine. Debian 11 is not there yet.

    Baffled about Q4OS wifi

    That is the firmware I had downloaded from Intels sight but couldnt copy it anywhere. Permission denied. I never read anything about a blob. I had the same problem trying to install Debian 11.0 The Debian installer said I was missing a list of wifi firmwares like and including -46.ucode and...

    Baffled about Q4OS wifi

    Yes. I could be wrong but I think its been right in front of me the whole time. The kernal in Q4OS is 4.19 and when I go to Intels web site for the Linux drivers my AX200 wifi card need at least 5.4 or something like that. My wifi card isnt supported in Q4OS. Bummer. I must say though that the...

    Baffled about Q4OS wifi

    I ran a live usb of Q4OS and liked it so i installed it. I cant find a setting that detects my wireless choices at all. I had to connect to my cell phone hotspot to get internet and of course it was "dial up" slow. As I speak I am on Kubuntu (like it!) which i am running along side windows 10. I...

    Photorec recup_dir files unremovable

    I recently used Photorec Testdisk to recover some files from a 5 TB portable drive. It left several hundred recup_dir files in my home directory and I cant get rid of them no matter how hard I try i just get "access denied" in some way or other. I was able to copy them to another drive. I no...

    "Authentication Failure" in Terminal AFTER logging in

    I'm sure you have seen this question many times b4. Its a newbie question and I'm a Newbie( to linux ). I'm running Mint 20 and an AMD based system and everything is working quite smoothly except when I try to get root in the terminal. Anytime it asks for my password (the same one I use to log...

    Boot order and bootloader editing

    OK. I pulled the drive out and installed Solus on the second drive. For fun I put my main M.2 drive in an external enclosure that looks like a jumbo USB drive with a cable for Type C and a cable for USB 3.2 . Keep in mind that Linux Mint was installed after Windows but modified in the efi...

    Boot order and bootloader editing

    Good idea opening my box but... I would have to remove the Graphics Card to get to main M.2, pull it, put back grahics card, boot and then repeat the process putting things back the way they were (yawn), but ill get to it soon.

    Boot order and bootloader editing

    So I looked into efibootmgr. Installed it to Mint ( which shows up in my Bios boot options as Ubuntu TWICE ) and Thanx to a "linuxbabe" link in google search I also learned how to change the boot order. That was quite interesting. Now it boots directly to Windows and my "F11" will give me the...
