Re: Finally [SOLVED] no reboot or shutdown (a 6 month tale of woe with kernel 5)

Note that with an AMD Ryzen CPU you might benefit from using the 5.2.x kernel, which is already available in the (item 8 ) for any new ryzen users seeing this there are two ways to go. the ubuntu way or the mainline way. if you want the proprietary drivers amdgpu-pro which is now called radeon soft...

Re: Random freezes running Linux Mint 19.1 on Thinkpad A485 (AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 2500U)

For the moment it does. if you get no errors when you run this then you have found a good compromise between system an...

Re: no audio captured with USB HDMI capture device.

if you get no audio from hdmi the first thing to try is unplug your hdmi wait a few seconds and plug it back in. in Terminal run pulseaudio -k and wait about 6 seconds for the new sound cookies to be regenerated and last it seems that opening the sound settings kickstarts audio. click your volume ic...

Re: gm10's Linux Mint Tools PPA

hey gm10
i'm trying to test out amdgpu-pro but it needs kernel 4.15. when i click install in the update manager linux kernel section nothing happens. do you think this is a ppa issue or ubuntu? are the kernels in your script coming from mainline only?

Re: Kodi 18.3 crashes at startup in Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina" Cinnamon Edition

works fine here mint 19.2 cinnamon, ryzen3 with 18.3+git20190621.1610-final-0bionic once you have your nvidia working properly and higher resolution monitor maybe it'll work for you too. i'm actually impressed that kodi buffers very well now, and no need to mess with advanced_settings.xml huh!
