Re: Dell Inspiron 5100 14in. laptop

Yep... using the mixer available under the speaker icon in the panel allows you to set volume to greater than 100%. So, I keep mine at around 135 for much louder sound, using the media players volume sliders to reduce sound to desired levels. As Stevo pointed out, your last insi -F printout shows an...

Re: Dell Inspiron 5100 14in. laptop

I installed MX 17.1 yesterday on a Dell Inspiron 11. It has the same N3050 CPU, and same chipsets for video, audio and more. The only difference in the chipsets when comparing your Dell with my Dell is that your laptop has a different wireless chipset. Of course, the Dell Inspiron 11 has a smaller 1...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

Thanks Adrian. Yea, it was a bit confusing to me, since it appears that each partition should have its own options for things like file system type. Again, OpenSUSE is using a config with a btrfs root partition, and an xfs home partition by default with its installer, and I want to use that same set...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

Thanks Jerry. It's been a while since I've participated here. I've just had too much going on, including my share of health problems, with multiple vertebrae fractures, pelvis fracture and more (keeping me immobile for a while). Loads of Fun! Those are pretty much healed now, and Physical Therapy is...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

Thanks Guys. I'll reinstall that way ("preserve data in home" checked), after making home XFS Of course, I may regret this setup (root as BTRFS, home as XFS). But, OpenSUSE is using that as default with their installer now. Note that I did setup a netbook as btrfs only some time back (with the same ...

Re: Use Different File Systems for / and home

The Installer does have an availalble check box option for "preserve data in home" It was just a bit confusing, since most of the options were about home, yet the file system type selection did not allow you do choose between root and home. In case others want to do the same thing (install MX Linux ...

Use Different File Systems for / and home

I just finished installing MX 17.1 on an underpowered Dell Netbook (works great BTW), and was unable to determine how to use different file system types for root and home. For example, using Gparted, I created a root partition using BTRFS, and a Home partition using XFS. This is the layout being use...

Re: HP Detachable laptop

The Dell Venue Pro 10 tablet arrived late yesterday via FedEx ground shipping from Dell Outlet, and I opened the box and inspected it this morning. It's in perfect, like new condition (no scratches or blemishes on it anywhere, even when inspecting at various angles under bright lights). Gotta love t...

Re: HP Detachable laptop

I searched for Bay Trail in the forums here, and this recent thread came up first in the search results. I have a feeling I'm going to need help with a similar tablet. I ordered a Dell Venue 10 Pro on sale from Dell Business Outlet. It has a Bay Trail chipset in it (Atom 3735F CPU, 2GB DDR3, 32GB eM...

Re: TV Tuner Card

I bought a card a while back that was supposed to work with Linux. It supports digital broadcasts (over the air ATSC, as well as unencrypted cable broadcasts using the latest QAM standards). It's still in the orignal shrink wrap packaging, as I never got around to setting it up. One reason was beca...
