Re: Failed to write entry journal error Linux Mint 19

Ah ok. Well I'd already done a full reinstall anyway. Hopefully that resolves the issue.

Thanks!

Failed to write entry journal error Linux Mint 19

Hi all, I recently did a clean reinstall of Linux Mint 19. Everything was working swimmingly before the reinstall (except for when I accidentally deleted a whole bunch of stuff), as well as on my other computer. However, after my reinstall I'm having weird issues. If I log out (not restart), and lea...

Re: Linx Mint 19 Hangs on Boot After Updates (UEFI issue?)

So I re-read the help text at the bottom of my BIOS, and I found online instructions for disabling secure boot. That does seem to be the problem. The way the help text reads, secure boot only works if Windows UEFI is selected, while selecting "Other OS" disables secure boot. Likewise, I went in and ...

Re: Linx Mint 19 Hangs on Boot After Updates (UEFI issue?)

I did see that, and I've tried to turn it off. But the setting is disabled in my BIOS and I have no idea how to do that. What's odd is that it did seem to be working up to this point.

Solved: Linx Mint 19 Hangs on Boot After Updates (ASUS UEFI BIOS Secure Boot issue)

Hi all, I recently updated several packages on my desktop machine (including the linux kernel). I shut down the desktop and, when I started it up again, I found that it was hanging on boot. No mint splash screen, it never even got that far. The screen to enter BIOS showed up, then just a blank scree...

Re: Linux Mint 19 Crash, then Hardware Errors/Boot Error (Busy Box), then Microcode Error

thx nailed it. I was running a sorely outdated BIOS version: 1.2.3, which Dell doesn't even offer for download anymore. I terrifyingly flashed BIOS to 2.8.1, and the errors are gone: nate@ralien:~$ dmesg | grep microcode [ 1.267857] microcode: sig=0x806e9, pf=0x80, revision=0x8e [ 1.267944] microcod...

Re: Linux Mint 19 Crash, then Hardware Errors/Boot Error (Busy Box), then Microcode Error

How do I update my BIOS? Runing Dell XPS 13. I looked into that at one point, but everything I read basically said "don't do that unless absolutely necessary!!" so I've avoided doing it so far.

Hi, I wasn't sure what forum to post this in, so I went for Other Topics.

Anyway, here goes: I was workin...

Opening Mendeley causes fallback mode

Hi, I'm experiencing an issue where Cinnamon crashes into fallback mode every time I open Mendeley. I've deleted both the .config and .cache folders for Mendeley Ltd. and restarted, but the issue persists. It only happens with Mendeley, but it happens every time. Once I restart Cinnamon, everything ...

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freezes randomly

Clearing the /tmp and .cache folders seems to have resolved the issue. Everything is working stellar as of now. The trick is to absolutely make sure you do it as root and get all hidden files (including a dconfig file).

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freezes randomly

What are the odds that this is a Firefox issue? I've read elsewhere that Firefox might be causing similar behavior for others. And its worth noting that I was using Chrome up until a week or so ago with no issues. After switching to Firefox Quantum (57.01), the crashes started up again. I've deleted...

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freezes randomly

So after a couple of months if flawless use this issue started again and for the life of me I don't know why. Nothing was updated recently, no kernel changes since install , etc. I just tried clearing tmp and .cache. I'm not optimistic, but I'll see whar I can figure out

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freezes randomly

:( Well so far so good on the clean reinstall. It's only been two days, but before the clean resintall it was freezing on every other boot. I'll post if it happens again, but it seems to be best solution I've found so far.

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freezes randomly

I'd be curious to know if it simply is a driver issue. Maybe try using the modeset driver suggested by Pjotr? The intel driver is deprecated, and switching solved a host of other issues for me (including laggy effects, screen tearing on web pages, and youtube video flashing/blacking out quickly). I ...

Re: Cinnamon 18.2 freezes randomly

Thanks for the suggestions. I actually got impatient because I need my laptop for work. I went ahead and wiped the whole thing and started over with a fresh install of 18.2 I also removed the intel driver, because that seems like a good idea anyway. The problem appears to be fixed, Ive been using my...
