  1. Roger won't ever be forgotten here.
  2. Thanks, people. Hope all is cool with you. I do know about Roger, that caintry boy was one cool dude. Thanks for all your help over the years.
  3. This one is for my Canuck Pit bud, but good music belongs to everyone. Enjoy:
  4. Seriously man, if the toes are getting to be a threat, you might consider getting the feet amputated. My dad had toe problems and by the time the quack he was going to got done with him, his whole legs were seeping fluids. It's up to you, sir. What is more important - life or feet? If I know you at all, I know you choose life. Good luck caintry, always hope the best for ya.
  5. It's not Linux's fault, it's just that Windows is the 90% and Linux is like 1% and many, many distros. Plus my landlord only has cable, not the fiber optics good stuff.
  6. Figured I'd respond just so you don't think I'm ignoring you (yes, maybe I'm getting paranoid in my old age) I did try one last clean install of Leap. It told me it had to delete Windows. OK, go for it! But it took so long for the updates to run that I went forget it. Thanks for all you've done for me. Who knows where I'll be living next year? If I have a cabled connection to a router some time again I'll definitely go back to Linux. But for now it's the if it ain't broke don't fix it path for me. Man, I went and took a mighty crap last time and when I got done zypper was still on 9 out of 1100+ things to update .
  7. For real, it's over. I give you many thanks for all your assistance. I must give Nigel a shout out, and Bruce who first turned me on to Linux back in the day. I do the things that are suggested but it never works. I always get that message (a, r, i) because the connection craps out in the middle of any update I try. Enough is enough. Maybe this laptop hates Linux. F it then. I'll run Win 10 on this, maybe I'll buy another one someday to try Leap on, but no more on this one. Thanks, Terry, you're always spot on. Must be my lappy or the Wifi here that defeats me. Peace.
  8. OK, I did enlarge / through a clean install. But now I can't get over 50% signal no matter what I try. I paid for Norton, guess it's Win 10 and Norton for me. I've followed every tip you've given me. Don't know why I can't fix this.
  9. It's cool, no rush. I'm busy with life things now, starting new job Monday, gotta get up before 9 tomorrow to get car inspected (PA sucks, car was good til 2020 in NJ). I miss the Disks app that I had before the update I did. At least I have Linux up now, I can print (got my Flyers sked up on the wall), and I've still got Windows if I need to use it. All is cool so far, I'll check back in to see your plan some time later. Maybe I can fix things on my own, but I'll wait for your guidance. Spot-on Terry should be your name.
  10. Can't upload screenshot, I've gotta type again. /dev/sda 931,51 GiB /dev/sda1 260.00 MiB EFI Boot FAT /boot/efi /dev/sda2 16.00 MiB Microsoft reserved /dev/sda3 343.49 GiB HPFS/NTFS NTFS WINDOWS /run/media/paulhut1964 /dev/sda4 980.00 MiB " " Windows RE Tools /dev/sda5 15.65 GiB " " RECOVERY /dev/sda6 2.00 GiB Linux swap swap swap /dev/sda7 10.00 GiB Linux native Ext4 / /dev/sda8 559.12 GiB " " /home tmpfs 3.84 GiB TMPFS tmpfs /dev/shm " " " " /run " " " " /sys/fs/cgroup
  11. OK, copied my /home/paulhut1964 over to Windows, but the rest of that is beyond my level of savvy. I need more step-by-step.
  12. Can't expand the root. Max size allowed in expert partitions or partitioner through YaST is 10 GB. My /home is well over 500 GB with nothing on it. I did do 2 fresh installs without telling you. First time I did zypper -v up the connection died in the middle of it. 2nd time it finished but then there was no room on / to install anything. Then I deleted stuff and killed NetworkManager somehow. I think the errors are making /tmp humongous, so I open terminal and do rm -rf /tmp/* before every shutdown. I'll just delete any games I don't use and Marble globe and hope for the best. I deleted Firefox and just roll with Chromium for my browser. The router is on my new landlord's level above my living room, that's where I got the 70/70 with 94 to 100% signal. The bedroom gets between 68-76 % but that's good enough for me. Thanks, spot on as always, my friend.
  13. Maybe I'll need to start a new thread. Wifi is cool. The errors messages are in Leap, they look like this: http://i.stack.imgur.com/cozbu.jpg Also need to know what is safe to delete from system, as my / partition is 97% full. Do I need perl, python, samba and things like that?
  14. P.S.> My router is "Nunzio", it's got the 70/70. No problem accessing Windows through Leap after disabling Fast Startup. Still getting those strings of errors on shutdown, but I've read it might be just something minor. Thanks again. http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/5592857245"><imgsrc="http://www.speedtest.net/result/5592857245.png>
