Installing Software / Re: Can Linux Lite be updated when using persistent live USB version?

The correct, reliable method is to use the Tutorial we already provide in the Help Manual under USB Persistence.

Start up and Shutdown / DVD player opens upon start up
« Last post by Rapidrob on September 19, 2021, 04:46:39 PM »
   Linux 4.15.0-156-generic (x86_64)
Version   #163-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 19 23:31:58 UTC 2021
I did a normal software update last week and now every time I boot-up, the DVD player pops open as if it is selected in the BIOS looking for a disc.
It is NOT selected in the start-up BIOS as the first device, the hard drive is.
This has never happened before.
Is this a Linux issue? How can I stop this?

I tried it a few times, but still don't get the DW No.1 though.
I guess a lot in the top 20 can be interchangeable for different usage reasons...

Ok. I created a Linux Lite Live USB with persistence using rufus, and was able to update & upgrade, tho I did have one problem, but it's beyond my control.
This is what you need to do:
1. Boot up your Linux Lite persistent Live USB.
2. Click on menu, and in the search bar, type drive, the tool should appear as you do
3. Click on the tool to start it, once it's started, click on other software tab, and untick the 2 boxes that read cdrom, then click on close
4. Launch Linux Lite Terminal and type
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update and hit Enter, once that's finished type
Code: [Select]
sudo apt upgrade and hit Enter again.

As you can see in pics above, there were no errors about cdrom, and the system did upgrade. However, you might have noticed as well the other errors about some mirrors out-of-sync, well I can't do anything about it but try later, so if you do encounter the same, just try later. By the way, you could install Linux Lite in the USB too, just burn/write the ISO to another USB stick, boot it up, and when installing select the  spare 32GB USB drive as the destination, that's it. :)

Hello again. I tried the first method you suggested and that has fixed the problem.  I must repeat the process every time I want to install updates (uncheck cdrom as it keeps being re-checked) but now I can do and have done updates.  And will be able to keep doing them.

So far, so good.  I'll keep the second method in mind too (have a second USB drive, just in case.) 

Thanks again for the help!

Code: [Select]
/usr/lib/valgrindMake sure this is the correct file path to the lib file. Could be different for example.
Code: [Select]
~/yourusername/usr/lib/valgrind or something else.

I'll need the link to the original instructions you used.

I copied and pasted the export VALGRIND_LIB = '/usr/lib/valgrind' into the file. Next, I saved it. Finally, I ran the command you suggested: source ~/.bashrc. Then I received the following error. It says, "bash: export: '=': not a valid identifier"
"bash: export: 'usr/lib/valgrind': not a valid identifier".

What would you suggest I replace inside of "export VALGRIND_LIB = '/usr/lib/valgrind'"?

Hey there everyone,

Not sure how much information one needs to help me get Valgrind to be fully setup. If necessary, I will post the version of Linux Lite and Code::Blocks currently installed on my computer. HOpefully, what is included will be sufficient.

I am currently using Code::Blocks as my compiler. I have created a simple project by the name of DynIntArray. in this project there are two classes:
DynIntArray & DynVoidArray. Each one has a dynamic array. In order to verify that my project is not leaking memory, I am hoping to use Valgrind. I have already installed it, but I now need to edit the bashrc file so it includes "export VALGRIND_LIB = '/usr/lib/valgrind'. Unfortunately, once I have opened the bashrc file to edit it, I am not sure how to save it. Furthermore, the video I was watching seems to be meant for Ubuntu rather than Linux Lite. How may I open, edit, and save the changes I wish to make to the .bashrc file? Hopefully, with some assistance, I can check to ensure the project is not leaking memory.

Thank you for reading this post, and I very much look forward to reading your responses.
