Updating Manjaro screwed up my Linux Mint…Again!

At least that’s the 1st impression, technically it didn’t because Mint was untouched. This time I dug into it, and found Manjaro’s /boot/grub/grub.cfg file contained the incorrect UUID for my Linux Mint distro which is on /dev/sda. The incorrect UUID was pointing to /dev/sdb however the menuentry…whatever that is…said /dev/sda. Below are snippits from the …

Manjaro updates

Linux command line auto complete

In my mind I’m sure nothing else can possibly match the characters I’ve typed to autocomplete a command, so hit tab, only to find 20 …

Manjaro big update/connectivity problem

Almost 1GB of updates, including kernel 5.4.12-1 update was successful. I must say I was concerned, given my bad experience with Manjaro’s updates in the past. After rebooting I noticed my network trey icon had some red, but it said connected and another message I never saw, reduced connectivity or something like that. Web pages …
