Would you support a Patreon That Gave Away Games?:

We @Mostly_Linux want to give more people access to great Linux games and to give something back to the amazing Linux Gaming community. We have an idea for a Patreon and want to share it here for comments.

What if we start a MostlyLinux Patreon to fund Linux Gaming Giveaways. Here’s how it might work – You pledge $1 per month – that’s it. Whatever we raise – say up to $100 – we’ll match it – so that’s $200.

Then we’ll give it away in Linux games each month. We could give away either a bundle or a dollar amount and let the winner choose the games and maybe even the store. We could also buy the games directly from the publishers (Feral or Paradox etcetera) to allow them to get a bigger cut.

Gaming. Maybe if we get it big enough some of the publishers will start tossing games at us and we’ll give those away too.

Thoughts?

Linux for old laptop

Linux for old laptop:

I’m using an old HP Elitebook 8540p which is still working fine, at least hardwarewise. My problem, however, that there’s a long period after booting Windows where it’s slow as fuck and takes forever to open anything. Most likely an incompatibility with one of the updates.

Anyway, I need this thing and can’t spend god knows how much time on trouble shooting. That’s why I’ve decided to give Linux a chance.

I mostly need it for internet, office, movies and occasional gaming. Nothing fancy, just some isometric games like Shadowrun: Dragonfall and Civilization IV.

I’m used to Windows and not particulary experienced with command prompts. I just need something that runs smoothly and is capable of running some games. What’s the right distro for me?

Cant decide between Manjaro and OpenSuse Leap.

Cant decide between Manjaro and OpenSuse Leap.:

I am looking for a distro which would be fast as the pc I am installing it on is not that good. Also it would be great if the community would be nice as I am a student and thinking about contributing to the os which I will choose.

I was also considering Ubuntu but i heard a bunch of sketchy stuff about it lately (ie it is sending your search inquiries home every time you search something…) and that’s a big no-no for me.

Any suggestions? Thank you for your time!

Mint 18 not recognized by grub after kernel update, possible missing kernel:

Here’s my build: AMD APU w/ NVIDIA graphics card HDD 1 with Windows 10/Lubuntu HDD 2 with Mint 18. Mint 18 is my primary OS

I was having issues with dpkg, dpkg-configure –a kept returning initramfs errors. I read some things saying that /boot may have been full, so I removed some older kernels, and in my haste, I think I removed the kernel I was using (4.4xxx I think).

I rebooted, (big mistake) and when it reaches Grub, the HDD 1 shows up just fine, I can boot into Windows and Lubuntu easily, HDD 2 shows no info whatsoever, like it is not there at all.
