What did you install? You say Linux Mint, but then you say some sort of security version... so what exactly did you install, where did you get it, and what kind of crap, exactly, is it putting into what OS.

Without knowing what you have and what it is doing there is little anyone can do to help.

well i downloaded linux mint 17.1 rebecca from the main site , but if i do a ... uname -a ... i get this

Linux mint 3.13.0-37-generic #64-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 22 21:28:38 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

i uploaded a dpkg log at - https://pastelink.net/display?q=ay


haha , like i said i am a total noob when it comes to linux , maybe everything is fine but

there seems to be some sort of network server on 127.0.0.1
fake root is installed and whatever i try to install or change gets instantly reconfigured with a defualt script
the hosts file is locked - permission denied even as root
/dev/sda: No medium found
