so if I understand correctly does that mean I can add software to the USB provided it's less than the persistence amount I specified at the start?
I've just remembered the only problem is her laptop has only 512mb RAM but she's happy to buy more memory and it seems easy enough to fit, perhaps best to get that first do you think?
Anyway thank you both again I do appreciate all your efforts.
In truth the answer is I don't know can I check the HDD somehow?
sudo shutdown -rF now
fdisk -l | grep /dev
fsck -t ext4 /dev/sdXY
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrol
Troubleshooting issues like this are very difficult from a LiveCD, as we can't add software.You can try (with an active internet connection) running:Code: [Select]sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils pavucontrolnow see if audio works.But you must remember, even if it does, that fix will NOT survive a reboot.Can you give us the make/model of your friends laptop ?
No it's not .. I'm guessing PulseAudio can't be installed in a "Live" session then.I'll see if I can dig anything up about that laptop .. doubt if we'll get Audio working in a "Live" session, but maybe I can find out if audio is fixable (or not) if you install.
May just have to accept using this machine and Peppermint isn't practical in the end
QuoteMay just have to accept using this machine and Peppermint isn't practical in the endI wouldn't say that just yet this suggests it will work with pulseaudio http://askubuntu.com/questions/246407/no-sound-using-ubuntu-12-10-on-toshiba-satellite-p100Drivers are being updated all the time the first link I posted goes back to 2007 so it could well have been sorted by then to be honest I'd be surprised if it wasn't but you may have to to throw caution to the wind and install it so you can try it with pulseaudio but I would wait till Mark or someone smarter than me chimed in first if there's a way to fix it Mark will find it Good luckGraeme
