Hi, Jeff,

 

There is nothing in the close proximity and the interruptions occur pretty often when no appliances are runnint.

I am having a similar thing - strong WifFi signal but no internet connection. Disconnecting from the network and reconnecting most of the time solves the problem. I used to blame it on the local internet provider for unreliable service but it seems like the cause of the problem is different.

I was thinking of purchasing an external usb WiFi dongle but not sure that it would solve the problem.

Thank you, Charles.

 

How is the weather like now in the Netherlands? Last year I've been to Leiden, Utrecht, Amsterdam and the Haag.

 

I loved those little sculptures at the beach in the Haag.

 

Long time ago, when I was a child back in 70s, we had a variety of little dolls from the same theme - round-headed little dolls.

 

I need to go to Leiden again - very nice little town.

 

Take care,

 

Val

Hi, Charles,

 

Thank you for the reply. My laptop OS is the same as I used on iMac. I think there might be something messed up with installing/removing software on the laptop.

 

I can see no other explanations. I will probably live my laptop alone for right now - too much stuff to do (including my daughter getting married on December 2nd).

 

When time permits, I will do a clean re-install on the laptop. This is encouraging since I am considering ditching Linux Mint on the MintBox Mini and switching to Bodhi.

 

Thank you,

 

Val

Hi, guys,

 

I just tried to run Bodhi Linux 4.3.2 in my office iMac via Parallel's Desktop.

 

I've run it live, installed the digiKam 5.7.0 (the latest version), and it worked with no problem. I am not sure what is messed up on my home laptop.

 

On a separate note, Symphytum 2.2 still crashes at launch.

 

Now, I need to find out what is not working on my home Bodhi installation that prevents the digiKam 5.7 from creating a database.
