Code: Select all

sudo apt-get upgrade
That would have done it. Your machine did exactly what you told it to do. This is why you should always use the update manager unless you know exactly what will happen as a result of blindly typing commands found in dubious articles on the web.

I saw that Mint 19.1 is using the 4.15 kernel that doesn't work...
That's because it's the Ubuntu 4.15 LTS kernel.

That's how people get into trouble. The driver manager will correctly detect an nVidia card and recommend a suitable version.

Re: AMD/radeon pc with linux

RX 580 should work out of the box without the need to install proprietary drivers. To have bleeding edge support, you can chose oibaf or padoka PPA. As stated above, the card isn't yet supported. In addition, the OP is buying a top-end card for a reason, and the open source drivers will simply not ...

No, absolutely not. Regarding your video card, perhaps it's might be wise to consider an nVidia card. Driver support is much better.

Re: Does a low latency kernel do anything useful outside of misic?

I think you're talking about music ... No, it doesn't bring much - and if it does, then only in live music (just - no delays). I always run a lowlatency kernel. The differences are dramatic, but then my machine is built for lowlatency; 8 cores, 16 threads at 4.2GHGz, 6.4GB/s throughput RAID 0 NVME ...

Upgrade from 18.3 to 19 was as smooth as butter. But since restoring from image backup with Veeam Cinnamon will only run in fallback mode. I will try applying all updates & reboot.
Please let others know how you solved this. Someone may benefit from your new-found knowledge.
