    Default BSODs

    Up until recently I'd considered Windoze 10 to be as stable as Windoze 7, in the last couple of weeks three of my machines have decided that the BSOD is back with a vengeance. I could stuff around with Windoze but decided to give Linux another try. I settled upon Mint and was pleasantly surprised to find that it was happy enough to to work with my dual monitor setup using an nVidia card (last time I tried that, I gave up in disgust). It actually set an expanded desktop at native resolution for each monitor without any input from me.

    File sharing is causing me some minor hassle. I had it all working with both laptops and decided to add my (wired) media server into the mix. That machine has 8 different HDDs connected to it (I should really just spring for a multi terabyte drive) and I went through and set up the shares for each of them. This is where my problems began. I can see the computer, and the drives on the network (stragely it still shows up as a windoze network) but I cannot log onto any of them (permission denied). Even though I have set all permissions that I can find, I even allowed SAMBA through the firewall. Even on the computer where the drives reside I can open them in NEMO but cannot open them if I select the "shared" drives.

    Suggestions, polite, or otherwise, might be ignored, depending upon how clever it is.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    if it was that, but, you probably already killed the 7 by the sounds of it
    why do we need the NBN ? because the copper network is constipated & needs fibre

    I've put W10 into an induced coma prior to pulling the plug. Got the file shares sorted. Strangely a restart was all that seemed to fix it. So far, so good. Now all I need to do is to find something to replace M$ Access and Sketchup. I get the idea that I'm going to have to learn SQL and port everything over to that.

    I haven't used it myself but Kexi () has received good reviews as the preferred data base for Linux.

    Sketchup will apparently run on Linux as indicated at the Sketchup Community website.

    I can run both in WINE, but really want to run natively if i can. As for Kexi, looks promising. Thanks.

    Perhaps you will have to use something other than Sketchup.

    Do some research .

    MySQL might be appealing.

    All of the above are going to be investigated. MySQL holds promise, just got to learn how to drive it. (New programming language in my future, methinks - just which one)
    I know that Sketchup is not Linux friendly yet, again, like MySQL, it is a nuisance that I'll address one day when I have the time.
