Here's what I (and a lot of those here who know more than me) would do: unless you have some piece of hardware that requires a different kernel, stick with the one that works.

At least for now. We should get the -28 pretty soon. It's already in bionic-proposed....

The architecture names *are* confusing, of course.... I'm used to them, but they make no sense nowadays. Oh well.

I'm a little confused because my question was not about 32-bit installs, it was to ask if the download of Mint 19 will install to either Intel or AMD processors.

Jack
It'll install to both.

Re: Update Samba in LTS

I also recommend Mint 19 (for the time being, until the fixed ISO's have been released: install it without internet connection).

apt is a wrapper, it calls apt-mark internally, anyway. Same with sudo. So all of these are the same thing at the end of the day.
Well, I've learned something new. :)

I suggest this slightly different command:

In the case of Pan:

Re: "Could not detect any configurable direct-rendering capable devices"

I don't know, but driconf might not work with the new modesetting driver. Earlier Mint versions used the Intel driver ( xserver-xorg-video-intel ) by default. That said: don't switch back to the old Intel driver! Performance is less, and there's not much -if any- maintenance on it anymore (it's prob...

I'd myself by the way advise the current 4.15 kernel on Mint 18.3.
Preferably not the current (known "bad apple" -24) but the latest but one (-23). :)

Re: Sudden strange behaviour: keyboard and suspend

Kernel -24 is indeed a "bad apple". Boot from the previous kernel (it's under the header "Advanced" in the Grub bootloader menu). Then launch Update Manager - panel: View - Linux kernels. Remove the -24.

Re: Cleaning /var/cache on Mint 19 Cinnamon

...to be on the safe side, only remove the packages under /var/cache/apt/archives/ Or just sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get autoclean && sudo apt-get clean ... That command is a bit drastic.... Less drastic, and therefore safer, is to use Synaptic: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtips...
