Cpu fan strange behavior

Hi All, It seems that the cpu's fan of my laptop sometimes have a quite strange behavior, cycling from low to high speeds (and making noise) as if it was based on a clock instead of operating normally (fan speed changing accordingly to cpu temp) Two months ago, fan was going high speed quite immedia...

Re: New version of Linux Mint (Have you tried it, yet ?)

I'm testing Cinnamon edition in a VM. Absolutely wonderful. The interface is very, very responsive for running in a VM, looks very promising when it will run on physical machine.

Look and feel and new icons are just splendid. Amazing work.

Will install it as soon as it's released.

Re: Kernel upgrade from 4.4.0-119 to 4.4.0-121 => grub prompt

Hello, karlchen, Thanks for all this information. I finally was able to upgrade without any issue. This time, GRUB menu is as usual after a kernel upgrade, with new default entry for 4.4.0-121-generic and previous versions listed. Only difference compared to the two first tries is that this time, in...

The screenshot above is not mine but a generic one to show the grub prompt I have.

Here is the grub I have on my system :

Re: Kernel upgrade from 4.4.0-119 to 4.4.0-121 => grub prompt

Nope. My /etc/default/grub config file is tuned ( ipv6 disable) since install (approx. 5 months ago) and looks like this, kernel upgrade of the 4.4 series always went fine till today : # If you change this file, run 'update-grub' afterwards to update # /boot/grub/grub.cfg. # For full documentation o...

By a prompt I mean this (it's quite the same situation except I did not enter the ls command, but same screen with "Minimal BASH-like line..." text at the top of it) EDIT: please note this is not my own screenshot but a generic one to show the "grub prompt" I face after kernel upgrade https://docs.o...

Re: Kernel upgrade from 4.4.0-119 to 4.4.0-121 => grub prompt

Thanks for your answer.

Actually, I always have had the grub screen with a menu of kernels selection, and indeed, after upgrading the kernel in the past, there is a new entry and all previous kernels, which is perfect.

Now what I have is a grub prompt, no menu any more. That is the issue.

Hi all, Quite strange issue here (at least for the noob that I am) When upgrading my Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia from 4.4.0-119 to 4.4.0-121 (4.4.0-121.145), all seems fine regarding the install's log, but when I reboot, I then face a grub prompt instead of the menu I usually have. Hopefully I was able t...

Re: Access localhost from iPhone

I've been trough the discussion on linuxquestions.org, and don't know either what might cause your issue, except one idea : Did you check that there is no wireless isolation enabled on your access point / router ?

Re: I'm getting too many UFW blocks

Regarding the lot of blocked connections from your gateway to your computer on tcp/2869, it might be due to UPnP requests. You should check your router config and consider disabling UPnP in if you do not absolutely need it, as this can be a security risk. This should eliminate the above requests fro...

Re: Power management of laptop : shutdown immediately when battery very low

Thank you. Looks like a clean way to set the parameters I want. To be secure and avoid any hard shut off, I will set percentage-critical to a higher value like 10, and percentage-action to 8 or 7. I saw these values are effective only when use-time-for-policy (which is true by default) is set to fal...

Wow. I love that command. I'll have to look into that. Glad your concerns are done away with. Happy computing!
Thanks! I'm always impressed by Linux terminal power in general, and by tools like sed in conjunction with pipes in particular.
