Re: Linux Mint support on Lenovo Thinkpad t490s?

sorry to be a bearer of bad news, but I tried on my old laptop to use live usb, everything worked fine. Installed Linux, and wifi dropped randomly, What kernel did you use? I've read that this chipset would work best with kernels 4.16+ I've found a report of a user who uses Ubuntu 19.04 with t490s ...

Re: Linux Mint support on Lenovo Thinkpad t490s?

Re: LM 19.1 installation with full disk encryption AND separate \home partition

That would be a waste of resources. It's much better if people talk about their specific experiences right here on the forums, and then many people can potentially benefit from it, not just one. Dear Moem, I fully agree. That's why I PMed the OP now and asked him kindly to open up a thread about th...
