Compare CSV files in Bash

I’ve been needing this forever!  I have huge CSV lists and have needed a way to quickly compare them.  For this I just need to make sure that the first field from one CSV does not exist anywhere in the second CSV.  It was actually pretty simple to write this in Bash and it runs really fast!

while IFS=, read -r field1 field2
    if grep --F "$field1" list1.csv; then
      echo "$field1 found"
done < list2.csv

Make an EFI bootable drive of Ubuntu

Newer computers are phasing out legacy boot options, so creating a bootable Ubuntu drive is now something of a nightmare =.=  It’s been a terrible journey, but I’ve got one working so here’s how I went about it.

  1. on a small USB stick create a Ubuntu installer
  2. Set up virtual box to run the installer USB stick from a VM and give it access to your USB drives
    (this is not necessary but will stop you from accidentally overwriting a hard drive)
  3. Plug in the USB you want to install Ubuntu on along with the Ubuntu installer USB
  4. Make sure to run the virtual machine in EFI mode, in virtual box this is under system>Enable EFI ( special OSes only)
  5. Start the VM, and choose the USB stick as your install location
  6. install normally – during the process you will need to partition the stick to have one partition to install Ubuntu (make that one really big)  and a second partition for the EFI booter, make that small like 500mb-1G
  7. and then you should have a bootable USB yay!!


Now, to try and match it to an existing VM you would

  1. Back it up with Ubuntu backup tool
  2. Transfer the backup files to the USB stick, and restore from there

There will be a lot of messed up stuff that’ll take hours to get back up and running, but this is the only way I’ve found where I can make a virtual box VM portable through EFI =.=  And restoring from a backup will at least save a lot of time vs starting from scratch.


And finally after you’ve gotten everything to where you want it, make a backup USB!

  1. Use disk clone in Mini Tool Partition wizard
  2. And if you get a
    EDAC pnd2: Failed to register device with error -22.
    error when trying to run it then one of your partitions were renamed in the process
  3. use “sudo blkid” to see all your partition UUIDs
  4. then edit “nano /etc/fstab” and fix the UUIDs as necessary


Sorry this article is a mess – I’ve gone back and forth from so many methods to try and make a bootable EFI drive that my notes are all over the place.  So this is more a general outline of how I made my bootable stick, but it should point you in the right direction.

Fix no wifi on linux mint for old HP laptop

My old HP laptop had a very old wifi card that wasn’t supported out of the box by linux mint, but I was able to install the necessary drivers with the following code

sudo apt update
sudo update-pciids
sudo apt install bcmwl-kernel-source 
sudo apt install broadcom-sta-dkms
sudo apt-get install broadcom-sta-dkms
"/cygdrive/p/Programs/VirtualBox/VboxManage.exe" clonehd 'F:/Documents/Virtualbox/2019 Mint/2019 Mint.vdi' 'F:/Documents/Virtualbox/2019_Mint.iso' --format RAW
