comment How to setup an Access Point mode Wi-Fi Hotspot?
I'm trying this on 15.10. It didn't work at first until I installed hostapd. Now it connects, but doesn't seem to be allocating an IP address. I tried installing isc-dhcp-server but it didn't make any difference. dnsmasq seems to be running with some dhcp ranges but not allocating to the wlan0 interface. What could have gone wrong?

comment Error fetching .deb file from the server showing “Hash Sum Mismatch” in 16.04
Try using the mirror finder in System Settings->Software & Updates->Ubuntu Software->Download from: Other -> Select Best Server. Using mirrors closer to you makes the whole process faster and more reliable. You may even find that your ISP has their own mirror, but at least one in the same state would be better than the global server.

Welcome to AskUbuntu! Can you include a link to an article that says this, or copy and paste a statement and its source?

make-kpkg no longer builds debs without fakeroot unless you are a super user.

Sorry! This answer is about Ubuntu. The OP's question is about Linux Mint. My bad.

comment Deleting and resaving files on flash drives
Nautilus is already installed by default in the default desktop version of Ubuntu. Sorry, I just realised that you said you're using "17.2 Refaela". That's not Ubuntu. That's Linux Mint. You probably want to ask this question on Unix & Linux Overflow and tag it as linux-mint.

comment What's a simple way to recompile the kernel?
This doesn't seem to work anymore without calling make-kpkg with fakeroot. I get errors on "installing" the deb. Editing the answer...

BTW, welcome to AskUbuntu! Please use the formatting buttons (e.g. {} for code) or use markup (4 spaces after a newline for code), particularly when including code in your question or answer.

That suggests that the card is present and using the 'igb' module. What's the output of ip link and ip a ?

comment Why do mainline kernels have a version suffix?
And renaming it doesn't affect the impact of changes they may have made to it.

comment Why do mainline kernels have a version suffix?
@mikewhatever If it's inconsequential, then why mark it as such? As I asked above, if it's supposedly unmodified, why suffix at all??
