Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Session gets OOM-killed overnight

Update. Just came into the office and the XOrg session was NOT killed this time. I closed Firefox and Thunderbird over night and as i wrote yesterday, i had changed the graphics driver setting in the VirtualBox setting to match the settings of my OldVM that didn't have this problem (but was a mint 1...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Session gets OOM-killed overnight

Yes, it was again XOrg that was killed. I will check back tomorrow and see what "evidence" i can catch after logging in. The VM is actually not suspended. It is just the Screen that is locked. I leave the host (laptop) running over night and it also just locks the screen. Thanks for your help! Reall...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Session gets OOM-killed overnight

So. I quit firefox before leaving the system overnight. I came back and still OOM Killer was active last night :( I still have my old Mint 19.1 VM and compared settings. I noticed some difference in GraphicsController - no idea whether this is the reason. I had n't had this problem with the old VM, ...

Re: Linux Mint 19.2 Session gets OOM-killed overnight

Thanks. Okay. I did some more research and i saw a couple of "Web Content" Processes that were in the list of processes that are dumped into whatever log dmesg ist showing. I attached some more dmesg output. I googled what this "Web Content" processes are about and I read it is due to having lots of...

Linux Mint 19.2 Session gets OOM-killed overnight

Good morning, since the upgrade to Mint 19.2 XFCE this is really bothering me. When i leave my Mint running in a virtualbox over night (Host is also a Linux Mint), the session gets killed somehow. That means when i log in, i see an empty desktop and all my running apps are gone. When i run dmesg i s...

Re: Session gets killed after lock screen was active

Small bump with an Update: i have the feeling that this only happens, when i have my laptop in its docking station and it is connected to my monitor. When i have it running "on the go" and the screen locks, this never happened sofar. But when it is docked, the reproducibility of this is almost 100%....

HP CP: Mint 19 does not let me print in Color, Mint 18.3 does!?

Hi, i have a HP CP1215 laser printer connected to my Odroid SBC. The Odroid runs CUPS and shares the printer in the network. From my old retired Linux Mint 18.3 laptop i can print easily in colored mode, the Mint Printer Test Page comes out of the printer in full color. Also the Colored toner does n...

Re: Encrypted /home unmounts automatically

I could narrow it down a bit, but just a few minutes ago when i bootet my laptop it happened again. So it seems i have a 100% reproducibility for now... After login Home was decrypted automatically. I did nothing but started thunderbird, Thunar in my home folder and a shell with tail -f /var/log/sys...

Re: Boot partition too small?

You could eliminate the swap partition completely. If you have 16 gb of RAM you will probably never need even 1 gb of swap. I have been running Linux for years, right now openSUSE Leap 15, and I have never used a swap partition. I have 16 gb of RAM and swap will never be used. Yeah you're probably ...

Re: Slow boot after fresh install

So... in my previous post i had told that i had un-commented the /swap which resulted in having to type the extra password for the encrypted /swap partition a couple of times (even when sudo apt-get installing something i had to type the /swap password again. weird). It had NO effect after rebooting...

Re: Slow boot after fresh install

Re: Boot partition too small?

So... I read some forums and all said "better not touch the /boot". Even GParted warns me to touch anything like that... However... I just shrinked the Swap (decreased it to 16GB - that should be enough... not sure if i actually need it..). Then i moved the EFI Parition "to the right" by 1GB into th...

Re: Boot partition too small?

you shouldn't need to move either boot or efi partitions,, but you should make that boot partition, into something that's closer to ~500Mb in size .. Okay.... but my /boot and EFI partitions are tightly aligned withhout any empty space in between. So increasing /boot means moving EFI. & yeah - that...

Re: Boot partition too small?

well... /boot and /EFI are now configured. What would you recommend? I could boot into a live system and change the partition layout with GParted. I could move /boot to the end of my GPT, i have 32GB Swap there which is probably really overkill. How would i recreate the boot loader without breaking ...
