Re: Shutdown problems w/mint 18.1 cinnamon serena..

Sand, i may have found a solution, at least w/my machine: do you have nvidia drivers installed. if you do, change to the nouveau open-source driver and reboot. i ran into a problem after this, but i now have had multiple good shutdowns and restarts (see below). i was in 4.4.0-59 kernel doing the dri...

Re: Shutdown problems w/mint 18.1 cinnamon serena..

i switched up to kernel 4.4.0-59; no change. my shutdowns are intermittent and my restarts are none existent. only thing that comes to mind out of the ordinary is that i tried to deal with that 18.1 bug-size of the log files in /var/log getting out of hand. i went into gnome commander as admin and d...

Hi everybody I have a similar problem with shut down and have been searching for solutions here and there (Linus forum and similar) without any solution/s that worked for me.
