Caution: Kernel 4.15.0-60 freezes the machine at random

Hi, I am using LM 18.3 x64 Mate. I upgraded the kernel to version 4.15.0-60 and since then I experience random freezes every 2-24h. No errors at all in logs. The last entry in syslog contains \00\00\00\00\00... I found this: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1842447 The bug name i...

Re: mintupdate software sources doesnt work after update 18.2 -> 18.3

Yes it is :D. I reduced the problem to a single command: ~ $ software-sources (Notice no sudo here). On the machine with LM 18.3 installed from scratch, this command creates a popup window asking for credentials. However on the machine LM 18.3, which was upgraded from 18.2, I get this: ~ $ software-...

Using Linux Mint 18.3 x64 Mate My mouse does have a middle button/wheel, which works, so I do not need middle click simulation, when I press left+right buttons. How can I disable that?

Re: Telling the system to boot latest kernel after update

Wow! I cannot explain how could I be so silly and not notice that these are in fact different kernel series. I thought they all were 4.4 series. So the system is indeed using the latest one I installed and it switched grub correctly. Also thank you for the info on how to change grub default menu ent...

Telling the system to boot latest kernel after update

Hi! I recently decided to upgrade LM 18 -> LM 18.2 (MATE 64-bit). In addition to that I also upgraded all packages suggested by the update manager, including the kernel. However after reboot the system still boots the old kernel. How do I configure it to boot the latest one. I only have ssh or x2go ...

How to launch Emerald at logon?

When I type the question in the subject in google, I get tons of results, but none of them seem to work on my LMDE. The latest update pack installed the latest MATE, which broke my Compiz setup. Now Compiz works, but there are no window borders, so I installed Emerald. The problem I now have is laun...

Does this suggest a bad SATA cable?

Hi I recently started to have a weird error, which occurs randomly. Sometimes the system won't boot at all and simply displays "read error" on the screen and nothing more. Some other times it would drop to grub rescue console saying that it could not find a device to boot. Recently after leaving the...

Thanks. At least now I know the situation. Unfortunately the package from http://twolife.be/debian/todo/xvmc/ didn't work. It installs, but then I have broken dependencies and have to "sudo apt-get install -f" :( I guess this is one of those "rough edges", that where mentioned at the LMDE download p...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

Upgrading IS necessary - older releases though supported do not have the latest apps in their repos. Windows XP is 11 years old and it is not supported anymore - that still does not prevent me from installing the latest VLC 2.0.4. On the other hand I cannot easily install the latest VLC on the still...

Re: Why do new people give up on Linux?

It is exactly like this. This is the very reason, why I never got involved with Linux development (I mean the system itself or one of open source applications that run on it). The dependency hell puts me off every time I download the source code of a project and prevents me from getting involved wit...

Thanks. I was not aware of the remount option. Can I assume, that the bash script located in /bin will continue to work correctly even after the remount as ro?
