Desktops / Re: What is the max ram amount...
Last post by duststuff - May 22, 2024, 05:40:10 PM
Hi, Larry. Have you searched online at all for this information? It would normally be included in a user manual / guide for the motherboard, which is often available from the manufacturer's website. The first thing I would check is if your overall PC / system has any kind of service tag number or serial number. If it does, you can probably go to the manufacturer's website and use that to search for resources (including documentation) for your specific system. If not, then the next thing I would do is search with keywords like 'hp 83ee' 'motherboard' 'manual' or something similar in order to find somewhere you can download it from for your reference. If you don't care about having the manual for other purposes, you could drop 'manual' as a keyword and add 'maximum ram' to see what comes up. In my experience I've found the above process relatively straightforward to find this info, even with pretty old computers.

Also, if you're running the actual system, there are various tools that provide information about hardware, some of which are probably already installed. This would be a way to get more detailed information about your motherboard, if needed. If you're running Linux, 'lshw' is a pretty standard command-line utility for this. Another one that can be helpful is 'inxi'. They each have various options you can add to filter the output, make it more verbose, etc.

(Lastly, I doubt that it's a big deal, but here on the Sparky forums and wiki, the term 'desktops' seems to primarily be used to mean 'desktop environment' (i.e. software) rather than to mean 'desktop PC' (as opposed to a laptop, etc.).)

I had 8GB of ram when I first bought the prebuilt computer, I first upgraded it to be 12GB's of ram by adding one 4gb ram, and now I added another 4gb ram stick (G-Skill DDR4 4GB 2400MHZ.)

   WTF lad. You weren't the smartest in your class, huh ???

 Why do you repeat exactly word-for-word a message ....???





That you have already posted on the HP forum, where you have received several answers, and is already SOLVED:

Newbie questions / How to disable natural scrolli...
Last post by cecca - May 22, 2024, 02:43:31 PM
Hi!
I've just reinstalled from scratch my Sparky with XFCE on an old MacBook Pro and I've quite configured everything as I wish. The only problem is with the touchpad: in the setting I'm trying to disable the natural scrolling (untick the relevant option) but I can't save this setting. As soon as I close the window the natural scrolling is there.
What can I do?
Thanks for any help you can give to me.

Does no one have any idea?

Of course, in the meantime there were a lot of updates. But, I could not solve my problem.
I don't want to uninstall MATE and after them reinstall it again.

I think, there must be a solution.
What do you think?

Best regards.

Apparently, you're using a Japanese custom fork of Firefox ESR.

And probably like Firefox, it uses Multiprocess (e10 - Electrolysis).

Hence, you will see several entries of it in your system manager. And I guess, you'll be able to configure it manually through the 'Floorp options'








Cheers !!



Makes sense, but I only thought Chrome/Chromium did that. The more you know.

Sparky applications / [SOLVED] Floorp Running
Last post by Ze_Mind - May 18, 2024, 03:33:45 AM
If this is in wrong forum, sorry.

I am running the 11.12.2 version of Floorp. I rather like it.

But oddly, it's shown 4 times in my system manager. Now, it doesn't hurt anything, but why?

Installation / Re: SparkyLinux 6.7 (Po-Tolo) ...
Last post by duststuff - May 17, 2024, 03:34:37 AM
Are you using a multi-boot setup? If so, it might be helpful to mention what other OS's you're using. Could this have something to do with where you're having Grub installed and/or whether you do a grub update afterward (i.e. which might scan for OS's on the machine to include in the grub menu). Also, are you using more than one hard drive? If so, using BIOS settings for boot order or using a boot options menu to choose the device to boot from might come into play. Might also be helpful to detail the similarities and differences between the Ubuntu install that works and the Sparky one that doesn't, as well as any relevant error / warning messages you see along the way. For some of the info related to your system, it might be helpful to use the 'inxi' utility with appropriate options to generate a collection of information about your system that you can post (as 'code') here. Can't guarantee I or others will be able to give you an easy fix / answer on this, but doing some / all of the above might give someone a better chance of understanding your setup there.

Edit: Here are some additional ideas if you haven't already tried them:
1. Double-check iso integrity.
2. Compare the Ubuntu installer and Sparky installer for any relevant differences. Depending on your Sparky version / iso, there may be an alternate installer you can use to produce an install that boots / works. You can search the wiki and/or forum for info on this.
3. If you have a system that this Sparky works on, you could compare that system and the problem system for any relevant differences.
4. You could try one or more different versions of Sparky; if one of them works, you could compare it with your preferred version for any relevant differences.
5. Not sure how you would go about doing this, but you could try to find out whether there is anything about your BIOS / hardware that might be keeping the Sparky installer from doing some necessary setup but without causing it to produce an error message.
6. If it's a Grub-related issue, you could try using a live UFD (USB flash drive) to repair / reinstall Grub. Not sure of your proficiency with Linux and Sparky, but there's a live Sparky Rescue iso that has a variety of tools for troubleshooting and fixing problems.
7. You could do some online searches with the 'make' / 'model' of your system and/or any relevant parts, along with the keyword 'debian' and relevant version number that your Sparky is based on ('11'?), which might help you see if others have had a similar problem. With new systems, there's always a chance that older software isn't compatible with them or doesn't support them in some way. In that case, you may need to go with a newer version of Sparky, unless you can get by with tweaking Grub and/or the iso data and/or the installer in some way to make it work. Related to this, it might be worth looking into whether the Ubuntu that works is based on the same Debian version as the Sparky you're trying to install. If not, you could try installing an Ubuntu version that is based on the same Debian version to see what happens and then compare similarities and differences, etc. to see if you can figure out where to focus your troubleshooting efforts. Or similarly, try installing a Sparky version that uses the same Debian version base as the Ubuntu you know works.
