Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

Ya, lot of UKUU updates too.
I removed gm10's mintupdate and got the official one working. Sure feels like a downgrade... Wish the mint community could have forked it for LM20.

Gotta say though, looking at the official mintupdate tool I now have, sure gonna miss gm10's work. Why...

Re: re-install of mintupdate not working

Hi dorsetUK,
I run programs and kernels not in the official lm 19.3. When I look at "Remove packages not available from sources" there's mostly stuff in there I definitely want to keep. The only thing not working after removing gm10's udpate manager and PPA is the official update manager

First I removed gm10's PPA in sources and ran: sudo apt-get purge --autoremove mintupdate seemed successful. Then I reinstalled via su...

Re: Unable to activate swap

Need to add a little more information. What is the scenario? Are you newly installing LM ? If so, having an active swap will be on by default unless you choose not to. What steps are you taking? Manually creating a swap partition is as follows: Turn off the existing swap space if needed. Create a ne...

Re: AMD GPU GUI Settings?

Hi, Just so we're on the same page a little review. First I assume you are on Linux Mint19.3 Cinnamon, you should always be explicit. You have kernel 5.4 series per your info. You are already using the open source amd graphics driver AMDGPU that comes with the kernel. In linux, most hardware 'driver...

Well boo. The kernel manager function isn't working for me. I'm on 5.4 series, got behind. Now I get "kernel unavailable, cannot build". So something I updated killed it I suppose. Back to UKUU I guess. too bad how sad. It worked for latest 5.6.x so ...maybe ...nevermind Those kernels would be brok...

Re: Compatibility of Ryzen 3700x, x570 unify MB, Nividia 1660 Super with linux mint 19.3

"even if it takes a bit of playing with initially" What would that entail? How can I get around a incompatibility issue? Thanks for your reply. Well, if you have a big incompatibility issue and boot with a live USB version of the OS it just won't boot. Or you'll have crappy graphics, HDMI won't con...

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

Too bad. Looking at activity for threads in the 'community project' section, makes one wonder how much support there really is for such here other than his. Lot of requests, not much help or thanks looks like.

Re: Kernel updates - a gentle moan!

most kernel releases are fixing security issues and or fixing minor bugs You wouldn't say that if you read the kernel release notices. A lot of new functionality goes in. Remember there is a difference between new mainline kernel releases like 5.4.x mainline stable which can be upgrades with new dr...

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

As of today, gm10's mintupdate is in the "Main" repo for Bodhi Linux 5.1 and no longer in its "Testing" repo. That makes it even easier to install it in Bodhi 5.1. :mrgreen: Bodhi Linux 5.1 has four editions: in the AppPack edition, gm10's mintupdate is present by default. In the other three editio...
