Re: Wifi adapter not turning on

Frankly, if it's my system I'm not wasting my time/energy on hardware issues like this. Too much work to do, and a few years back, when I was looking at a similar situation, I spent $10 usd on a Panda USB Wireless nano size dongle (like the RF for a wireless mouse). The Ralink based Ultra 150 b/g/n ...

Maybe related issue? https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam- ... ssues/5357


If so, looks like Valve will have to issue a fix.

Re: Need help for a particular installation in Dual Boot

Back to original Poster . . . if you cannot get the USB to be recognized as a bootable device, perhaps you still have "secure boot" enabled. Try turning it off. Also - - be sure to check that Windows Fast Start is disabled also, as Windows hibernation can confuse Linux installers.

Re: Wifi not detecting on 4.14 and 4.12 kernel, fresh install

If the LTS (4.9) kernel with it's modules is working well, why not make that the standard kernel you're booting into? At least until the current kernel is fixed. This is not just a Solus issue. Of course, another solution is to use alternate wifi hardware such as the Panda devices: http://www.pandaw...

if you have an ethernet port - - it would help to run the post install updates and then use the tweak tool to install missing drivers

Re: Need help for a particular installation in Dual Boot

Well, I read your PC is UEFI & GPT with Windows 10 (which makes sense as Win 10 with GPT requires UEFI) and NOT BIOS/MBR. So, when you posted your firmware screens, I noticed that in the window showing when you have "Advanced Tab" selected, you have "USB BIOS Legacy Support" . . . . Enabled. That do...

A couple other things . . . from the software center, you should install the command line program "inxi" . . . and then in a Terminal window, type "inxi -Fx" and post the re...

Re: Synology Drive Beta

There are two ways that I know of to install the deb file as you previously did: > Install Virtualbox on Solus, and then install Ubuntu Budgie in the VM. > Or > Just install Ubuntu Budgie on a fast usb v3 portable ssd such as the Sandisk Extreme 500 . . . note this is not a live install but a full O...

Re: Will Solus overwrite my EFI-Partition and Windows Bootloader?

Rather than add another ESP partition, . . another option is to use the gparted utility (on any live linux iso bootable stick) . . to expand the 100 mb ESP to 512 or 768 mb. That will allow for dual Windows and Solus boot managers in the same partition. The fewer partitions, the better.
