  • I did not lose very much data really. I have a large external drive with all the stuff that is truly important. I lost a few music albums that was on the drive. Mostly I was looking at repairing the install and subsequently salvaging the data files in a learning fashion. I am pretty sure my encryption files got whacked. So lesson learned, encryption can be your best friend or your worst enemy.
    When the going gets weird... The weird turn pro!


    • Here's some info on Ubuntu 20.04LTS?
      You can either leave it on 20.04, or upgrade it to 20.10.
      By upgrading vs new install, the upgrade process keeps all settings and files, as is.
      The 20.10 runs the new 5.8 kernel, and uses the new 3.38 Gnome version.
      I wanted the new kernel and newer version Gnome desktop, so I upgraded.
      By going to 20.10 you lose the long term 5 year support, but can upgrade to the newer software version, every 6 months.
      I will leave my wife's laptop on 20.04LTS, but will keep my laptops on the newer versions each 6 months, when they become available.

      • Uefi/Secureboot Info for Linux.
        Through the last 8 years or so, I've done a lot of experimenting with different linux distributions, on many different laptops.
        One issue you run into is uefi and secureboot.
        Windows 8 and 10 computers, come with uefi and secure boot enabled.
        Most Linux will work with uefi, but very few will work with secure boot enabled.
        Ubuntu is one of the very few linux distro's that meets the secure boot requirement.
        Fedora, and most others do not.(not sure about mint)
        Here is the Ubuntu statement on uefi/secureboot.

        How UEFI Secure Boot works on Ubuntu
        On Ubuntu, all pre-built binaries intended to be loaded as part of the boot process, with the exception of the initrd image,
        are signed by Canonical's UEFI certificate, which itself is implicitly trusted by being embedded in the shim loader, itself signed by Microsoft.

        I currently have Uefi/Secureboot both enabled on my 3 laptops.
        I have to disable secureboot in the bios, to boot into fedora.
