Re: Hardware/Driver/Firmware not compatible - journey to self enlightenment

model: PRIME B350M-A

Ryzen 1200, the 1st gen

a bit hesitant on bios update, the older mint version 15-18 were known to work with old computer of 10 years+ (it used to work on my old desktop until the hardware broken down) without having to equip with the latest BIOS.

Re: Hardware/Driver/Firmware not compatible - journey to self enlightenment

Gut feeling > Driver is the culprit that causing all these instability.

Did a fresh Mint 19 installation, wipe out all previous system file.

Change to 390 Nvdia driver. Keep the update manager untouched and using the stock firmware that comes with the Mint19 ISO.

Let see.

Re: Genymotion problem

check your graphic card driver.

if it is using open source driver, change it to the dedicated driver for your graphic card.

Re: Linux Mint 18.1 run into initramfs

mint@mint ~ $ sudo fsck /dev/sda1
fsck from util-linux 2.27.1
e2fsck 1.42.13 (17-May-2015)
/dev/sda1: clean, 518162/60858368 files, 89648117/243404288 blocks

i guess there is a way to make it works, but reinstall is time & resource efficient.

i wish i have usb3.0 2.5'HDD

Re: Linux Mint 18.1 run into initramfs

does this means that i need to prepare another live usb with 18.2 iso and install it on the hdd? but this would wipe out all my old documents right? i got 400gb of files that need to be back up, preferably there is alternative that does not required a fresh installation.
