Re: Complete re-install and nothing but problems

Final note, my as*.
24 hours later PIA (Private Internet Access) has quit.
Dead as dirt.
Won't run, won't re-install.
Everything seemed fine, shut down. Started up later, no VPN.

And with this post, I'm about done.

Re: re fstab and disk manager

Thank you, fehlix. However, my "strategies" as you call them, have arisen from trying to fix the problem of completely random mounting of this 2 TB disk. It's not just MX, in Mint I always had the same issues. It looks like the install programs can't properly pick up this disk. Some boots both parti...

Re: [ SOLVED ]Complete re-install and nothing but problems

I suspect the dust, clean and re-seat fixed whatever was wrong. I didn't find anything, but I'm not a hardware guru, and everything else is now fie, so far. Thanks, JayM - that demonstrated quite clearly that nordVPN's addresses are getting blacklisted - I tried half-a-dozen in various locations. Th...

Re: Complete re-install and nothing but problems

So that VPN is no good to me - it's NordVPN As I said, I coincidentally had a spat with tem just before the issues started. Don't know if that means anything, but, unlikel...

Re: Complete re-install and nothing but problems

I installed Vivaldi and Atom right away - I don't know where anything else might have come from.
It's just that compared to my first install on this same box I am not impressed.
