From time to time everybody has to chroot into another operating system instance. Either to repair a system or to install Mint13 in a LVM . Unfortunately this happens very seldom. See following command sequence for reference:

If you want to install Windows on a system which runs a Linux or you want to install a Linux on a box which runs Windows you have to be carefull. Otherwise you may not be able to start Windows or Linux any more. The next few pages contain instructions which you should follow in order to be able to boot both operating systems and which steps to execute if you want to delete one of the operating systems later on.


From time to time I get a hanging mouse on my Lenvovo Thinkpad. My system runs a Debian Linux on Mint 13.  At this point in time /var/log/syslog has multiple lines of the following format:

Feb 16 13:06:24 majestix kernel: [30109.311850] psmouse serio4: TouchPad at isa0 060/serio4/input0 lost sync at byte 1

That's annoying and I searched in the net and finally found a workaround I describe below.
