Re: PB Laptop freezes hard since kernel update K4.15.0-151

Found 2 bug reports on Launchpad, where kernel 4.15.0-151 seems to be the culprit. System hangs up or make filesystem read-only Here the first system might match. Filesystems switching to R/O state, however, is not an issue which has happened on my PB laptop so far. 4.15.0-151 is freezing intel 5th ...

In case your whole disk device /dev/sda has been distributed completely to + /dev/sda1 - /boot + /dev/sda2 - holding /dev/mapper/mint--vg-root i.e. your root file system / then extendi...

Hi, Hoser Rob. I guess you are right. Ubuntu Wealth Group So the thread title is deliberately misleading, because it should read "CEO of Ubuntu Wealth Group arrested for looting". It should have been made clear that "Ubuntu Wealth Group" is not "Canonical". Plus, being ...

Re: PB Laptop freezes hard since kernel update K4.15.0-151

After the second hard lockup had happened today, I decided to boot the previous kernel K4.15.0-147. So far the complete lockup has not happened again. :wink: For the moment, kernel K4.15.0-147 has been made the default kernel to be used on startup. This way, my wife can power on the laptop and use ...

PB Laptop freezes hard since kernel update K4.15.0-151

Hi, folks. I wonder whether it is only me on this specific old laptop, or whether others experience the same issue: This Packard Bell laptop has been running on LM 19.3 for the past 2 years almost daily without ever having locked up completely. No such issues, no such complete lockups for the past 2...

Re: Notebook overheating after upgrading to K5.4.0-80

Hi, SMG. The change list for 5.4.0-78 is pretty long, the change lists for 5.4.0-79 and 5.4.0-80 are brief. All in all a long change list from 5.4.0-77 to 5.4.0-80. Plus, if it is a regression / bug, it may not be listed as an intended change in the changelog at all. Or we will not be able to identi...

Re: Off this morning for first covid 19 vaccine jab

Hi, Pjotr. The side effects caused by the second jab (Biontec/Phizer) interestingly were almost the same as those caused by the first jab (Astra Zeneca). [ fa-arrow-up ] They started around 8 or 9 hours after the injection. But this time the symptoms were much much milder than after the first jab. A...
