Hi guys, i am having a bit of a nightmare with this one and i have been pulling my hair out for nearly two weeks trying to fix this issue and finally i decided to ask for help from this great community. I have a standard Linux Mint installed on my laptop and everything is updated. The problem that i am having is that there is a loud static noise coming from my speakers whenever my laptop is on battery power. I get no static at all when my laptop in connected to AC power which leads me to believe it is a power saving issue of some kind but not sure. I have tlp power saver installed and tweaking the settings does little good. On battery power though sometimes the static is a bit quieter to the point of stopping completely. So i think great my issue is solved, only for me to load media like vlc or clementine etc and i get the loud audio static again and when i close these windows it all goes quiet again. There is also the loud static type sound when powering on and off my laptop. I am completely stuck. Please i really really hope someone can help
I have a fresh install of Linux mint and the WiFi works and I can use the Internet perfectly. However after installing katoolin, which I get no errors, after rebooting I can't get any Internet at all even though network manager says I am connected to my network. I can't ping anything. I think it messed up my dhcp or something but I don't know how to find out where it went wrong What happened?
I have acquired A Dell Latitude E6410 laptop that looks almost brand new for £50, about $35 in your money. It has a 4 core i7 processor and 8GB of RAM. I have had Linux Mint on it and it runs great. I want to use it as my day to day working system. As such it will hold my personal details, client details, my itinerary, banking etc. I am now going to start doing a bit more travelling with my work and want to take the laptop with me. Laptops are high on the list as an easy theft target so now I want to scrub the current OS and re-install the latest Mint with encryption. For some of my work I also want to install Kali Linux. Currently I have this on an older more battered laptop but do not want to carry two laptops around. I have fitted a 1TB Hybrid drive to the Dell laptop and want to set up an Dual Boot system with Mint for day to day use and Kali available when required for work, but I want to make sure that the laptop is encrypted just in case it does get stolen or lost in transit. Can anybody advise on how to achieve this? Would it be better to make it a dual boot where you choose either Mint or Kali and only have one or the other OS running ? If so can they share any partitions like /swap or /home ? Or should I run Kali inside of Mint as a VM? and if so are there problems when using additional WiFi interfaces and Blue Tooth devices with the Kali VM. I have got a separate WiFi Alpha Network adapter for WiFi sniffing and am looking to buy a pineapple, I also have a SDR dongle and want to add to these tools so any advice on getting them to work with a VM Kali would be helpful if I go down this root
