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...

Re: Boot manager goes straight to Windows at startup

So, if you turn the laptop upside down, do you see a tag or similar marker that lists the make (HP) and model of the Laptop??? 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.

Re: Installing to < 10 GB drive

If you can get a small portable SSD (like the SanDisk Ultra 500). https://www.sandisk.com/home/ssd/extreme-500-ssd , it's much better (& safer) than sharing an internal disk for dual-booting So, on the smaller version (120 GB) . . . there is plenty of room for the SSD & bootloader. When plugged in, ...

Re: Solus dualboot with Windows 10

Can you start Windows from the uefi boot manager? Usually a FN key like F12 will bring up the boot options window. But you may have to look at the BIOS/UEFI instructions for your machine if F12 does not work.

Re: Do Linux without bricking your hardware! Guidlines?

Well, I learned a long time ago if one wants a truly smooth, troublefree environment for running (or testing) Linux, do one of these things: * Buy a PC with Linux already installed . . . now there are at least 50 vendors worldwide to choose from. No surprises, the testing and engineering has already...
