Re: Kernel 4.15.0-24 won't boot passed grub - Mint 19 Mate

Pretty much the same as MarkFreese. I did try a jump from the 20 kernel to the 24 kernel, bypassing the 23 kernel completely and still had boot problems. 24 acted nicer longer if I installed 23 first, but in the end, still had boot problems. I'm running a Mint Box 2 i-5 with onboard Intel graphics. ...

Re: Is Linux Mint ugly?

It ain't ugly y'all. Not at all. I had a girl like that once. so I know. Linux Mint (Mate) is BEAUTIFUL !!! I run the theme Mate installs with, except the wallpaper (Juergen Colorful Stone) and even that is from a previous Mint release. And I uninstall Compiz and disable compositing. I only need a c...

Re: Timeshift helped me out today, but is somewhat daunting for newbies

AHHhhhh !!! ... no wonder I got an update failed message. Maybe because I'm currently running in UEFI instead of Bios?
Think I'll break out Timeshift and see what kind of pain I can run into there LOL

I don't think that's something they want on the front-page to scare people off I think. And was just gonna say my usual about -24 having been removed days ago, but no mirror can really be that slow so I just checked and apparently Canonical re-added the kernel to the repositories, both xenial and b...

Yep, I figured that gm10. Just wanted to play with it I guess. Sometimes it would boot normally and sometimes not. Sometimes when it didn't boot normally and I tried to get to the grub menu in order to boot an earlier kernel ... it would give me a grub menu "if it wanted to" or maybe not or maybe a ...
