Re: That Hibernation Problem Again (Laptop)

Thanks for your post, it made me try again if hibernation while using ecryptfs for /home works now (currently version 4.15.0-15) and yes, it does!

Kernel 4.15.0-20 & ecryptfs - passphrase can't be entered

After installing the new kernel yesterday the boot process failed. The Mint logo coming up first (with the four color changing dots) is missing, the disk encryption passphrase for my home directory can't be entered, no reaction can be seen in the passphrase field, enter excepted, no error message.

Re: ecryptfs-rewrap-passphrase fails

The solution is:
- change user password back to old one, with which the fs had been encrypted
- than ecryptfs password

Code: Select all

ecryptfs-rewrap-passphrase /home/.ecryptfs/$USER/.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase
- change user password accordingly

Re: ecryptfs-rewrap-passphrase fails

While "Users"and groups" has no option to change the ecryptfs password at all it won't even let me change my (admin) password (doubleclick on "Password:" without reaction). Or do you mean "user account" (or "account details? it's "Kontodetails" in German) - there I could change my user's password, b...

[SOLVED]:ecryptfs-rewrap-passphrase fails

Hi! Trying to change my ecrypt passphrase fails (Mint 18.3 64bit Cinnamon). The home folder has been encrypted by choosing the "encrypt all my private data" (or what ever the Englisch expression is) at installation time when entering name, user, computer's name and passwort (in ubiquity). ecryptfs-r...

Re: "Get a newer version of e2fsck!" [SOLVED]

Would be nice to move it back (or somewhere else), because this problem occurs in 18.3 Cinnamon 64, too.
It only depends on the e2fschk version you have, not on the OS itself.
That's not "chat about s.t."

Re: Ubiquity changes an existing partition size

This is an excellent example why the installer should output and take input only in MiB and GiB (i.e., powers of 1024), so that partitions can easily be aligned to block & cylinder boundaries.

Re: Externe Festplatte braucht 13 Minuten zum Einhängen

tl;dr
Die Platte braucht ewig und wird trotzdem nicht eingehangen?
Dann tippe ich grundsätzlich beim Stuchwort "Windowspartition" auf "nicht sauber heruntergefahren, Windows-Swapfile ist noch belegt" (von wegen "fastboot" und so).

Re: WIFI Slow to re-connect on Resume from Suspend or Hiibernate

I can only confirm this behaviour still exists even in 18.2 (cinnamon//64bit). Additionally it's very annoying that there is no way to force the networkmanager to reconnect immediately . Try the terminal: 1. Establish the logical name of your wifi chipset (for example: wlx6cfdb83af4d5) with: inxi -...

(Interesting side note on the Sonya OS: I just tried to make a Printscreen grab in order to show you my WIFI tray for the above problem, and Sonya does not allow me to make one with an open WIFI tray - only once it is closed again.) Pretty much off topic, but you can configure the screenshot functi...

No internet connections active.
That would be a possible reason if there where mentioned links to network or cloud directories.

Re: Intel Device 5916 driver

As always let the notebook sleep for some seconds to fix the flickering, here's the permanent solution: 1. Edit /etc/default/grub Add i915.enable_rc6=0 [/b] to the list of parameter of GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT 2. Run sudo update-grub resp. sudo update-grub2 3. Reboot (optional) Result: Flickerfree.
