I will install Linux on USB flash drive.

The flash memory's read/write speed is depends on each files size.

What does file size influence to Linux booting/runing?

Small configure files? -4k

or Big kernel file? +1M

Variable 'prefix' not set, Debian 8.6.0 installer boot failure.

Hi. I'm not really one for introductions on forums, and I'm really sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

Anyway, let's start trying to describe this. By the way, Windows Vista is installed on the laptop. AMD64, no UEFI or GPT although my laptop can do both. I've got a Debian 8.6 install option already set up, but it starts with a "Try hd(0,0) NTFS5 error: variable prefix not set," before going on a second later to mount errors. All the possible drives—3 USB and one HDD—can't mount due to an invalid argument, and then can't unmount because it wasn't mounted in the first place. I've got a feeling this is interfering with Vista since USB devices stop working. Then, sometimes it flashes green lines, bamds, and noise for a split second each, before simply going to an eternal fully black screen. Which is around the time I restart into Windows Vista to see if I can fix something. I've so far fixed a deprecated vga:780 tag, but nothing else, even after a long while of searching. Maybe I wasn't that thorough, though. Most of the results seem to be for Wubi Ubuntu and after it's already been installed.

Laptop-friendly Linux OS and Linux-friendly laptop?

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Thu, 11/24/2016 - 04:22
Hello all,
I have been using Ubuntu for few years now. But other than for basic terminal commands, I didn't have any time to delve into many specific things. So you can call me a nubie.

I am planning to buy a new laptop (preferably a Core i7) and I want to install Linux on it. I've done a fair bit of research on it. But I want your opinion too. Basically these are the characteristics I'm looking for:

1) The OS should integrate with the hardware very well without any driver problems etc. (obviously)
2) The OS GUI should look good.
3) The OS should easily work with external devices such as projectors.

What are the OS/laptop type combinations you suggest with your experience? (An OS alone/ laptop alone is also fine!)

Return to Wolfenstein lib errors

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Thu, 11/24/2016 - 03:53
Probably an old issue but I couldn't find a solution that wasn't Ubuntu or pages that didn't exist any more.

I have installed the Linux return to wolfenstein program on my Slackware 14.2 HP/AMD laptop. I got the pak files from my Windows installation put them in place. When I go to run the program I get

./wolf.x86: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

I can't seem to find these files anywhere on the net. Am I just out of luck or have I not been looking in the place.

Thanks
Ace

openjdk-8-jre & frostwire

LinuxQuestions.org latest posts - Thu, 11/24/2016 - 03:31
I've had frostwire on my Linux Mint system for a while but after a recent new release I can't update/upgrade frostwire anymore. When I try I get the following error.

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: openjdk-8-jre

After running 'apt-cache search openjdk' I didn't see any packages that were jdk 8.

Now I'v also went to the oracle website and downloaded a jdk 8 package but all it is is a .tar file that I extract with a bunch of files in it with no installer. What can I do with this?
