Re: nvidia update from 440 to 450 failure

Thank You for this info. I think I will stay with v.450 untill LMDE 5 ( so untill Year 2025 :mrgreen: ) I am statisfied with v.450; works flawlessly with steam games, and works with suspend/resume. So I blacklisted any nVidia update. Problem is: My greedy eyes looking for nVidia RTX 3070 upgrade ...

Re: Linux 5.10 Will Be Able To Hibernate + Resume Much Faster

About suspend/resume: As always, it will depends on Your hardware and drivers. On my Desktop computer, I got lucky, so resume from suspend is done in about 2 seconds, so I doubt much improvement that can beat this. Also I don't like hibernate (even in windoz), because it takes unnecessary 'swap = me...

Regarding Timeshift: If in doubt, you can always boot from LMDE 4 install media and run Timeshift in the GUI... Thank You for this info, I didn't know that. It seems that champloo had a new LMDE install, without timeshift initiated - so, no any backup file to restore from. About this update: I anal...

Well, I think You picked a wrong edition. LMDE is not so user friendly, but Linux Mint 20 is. For experienced users this doesn't matt...

You never did a setup of System Snapshots (Welcome screen ---> System snapshots) ? If that is so, than You have not any snapshot, so You can't restore system. What does command "sudo timeshift --list" give? Here is mine: sudo timeshift --list /dev/sdd2 is mounted at: /run/timeshift/backup,...

Yup, I noticed Your post immediately after publishing mine.

When I was in terminal (at this failure), by issuing "journalctl -b", I saw about 10 red messages complaining on different nvidia 'things', but unfortunately did not write them down.

Current version was 440.100-1~bpo 10+1. After reboot I was left with blank screen with one...

Re: Lmde install alongside Windows 10

to add its bootloader into the existing FAT32-formatted EFI System Partition.
IF someone will use dedicated disk for that OS, than he/she will have option "use entire disk", at least for testing purpose, and, most likely that will work.
