Mint is Secure Boot?   Debian (Debian Based) Mint / Ubuntu

Hi

Installed this latest version, and it did not seem to install a key for secure boot.

 

Did I miss something?

If enabled, one has to initialize a password in the CPU firmware (STS -- so to speak). That's what it looks like to me (on my EFI/Secure Boot system)

In reply toRe: msg 2

Thanks there is a small bit of code that is supposed to signify...


To determine whether a machine has secure boot enabled in the firmware enter the following command as root in a Linux shell:
Secure Boot is enabled if the command outputs '1'. Some firmware versions are known to be broken and display '0' there even if secure boot is enabled though. # od -An -t u1 /sys/firmware/efi/vars/SecureBoot-8be4df61-93ca-11d2-aa0d-00e098032b8c/data

My result is....
1

 

So without me doing owt I seem to have it.

 

Thanks for the info.
