    A Linux shop

    yes he set up patreon , but i'm old school so i don't like sites that take money automatically or keep any card data. I actually did send him a cheque before xmas - no reply so far . i suppose i should check to see if cheque was cashed. International transfer would be easy but hes very guarded

    Kernel Panic on older laptop

    @70 Tango Charlie bottom line of first image show /dev/sdd1 and this your usb stick IS mounted. I tried live Mint if you right click on usb icon ; it doesn't automatically mount. So you have to play and should ensure its unmounted. Also sdd i'm guessing you have other sticks or external...
