General Discussion / Re: Windows 10 RTM
« Last post by rsutter on July 22, 2015, 08:21:14 AM »
Hello All,

I am running Windows 10 as a virtual machine on a Mac via Parallels.  Today, when I did the latest Windows 10 update, I lost WiFi.  I plugged in a USB WiFi adapter and regained it.  I then removed the USB adapter and rebooted Windows 10.  When the machine restarted, WiFi returned without having to resort to the WiFi adapter.

I'm using Edge, the successor to IE.  I like Microsoft's new browser and have tried out the Make a Web Note feature. 
The following observations relate only to Edge, not Windows 10.
  The text modification buttons on this bulletin board don't work
  The password saving add-on, LastPass, doesn't work.

If I access these same features via Chrome, also running in Windows 10, both work properly.

I look forward to the official release of Windows 10.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for the guidance.  I'll do that the next time I'm faced with the situation.

The Operating System Pie Chart on the threshold of the WIN10 release. Note that Windows 8.1 is just barely ahead of the Windows XP holdouts. WIN7 is the champ at just under 61%,29492.html

General Discussion / Windows 10 RTM

For those of us running Windows 10 via the Windows Insiders program you should now have and able to use the Windows 10 RTM (aka 10240). So far after a few days my Windows 10 RTM is running smoothly without any bugs... yet! <grin>

Microsoft kept true to their word and said everyone in the Windows Insider program would get Windows 10 for FREE.

Any comments from others using the final build?
Make sure you have nothing listed on sda 1.

Then you should have the option of / on sda 7.

Hello Linux Aficionados,

I have a computer that I use exclusively for Linux operating systems.  It is currently running
Ubuntu 15.04
Linux Mint 17.02 and
Fedora 3.19

I want to add Mageia 5.

To do so, I resized a partition, creating sda 7, another ext 4 partition.  I then ran Mageia from a DVD, loading it in RAM.

When Mageia was running, I chose the option to install it to the hard drive.  Great.  I want to do so in sda 7 so I chose the option,
Use existing partitions.

The next screen asks me to Choose the mount points

Here, I don't know how to proceed.

How should I fill in the boxes seen in the attachment?
The following options appear if i click on the down arrow beside sda7
(blank; no option chosen)

Thanks for any insights provided.
