Re: How to verify Linux Mint 20 ISO

Re: Frequent System Freeze

You can run inxi -Irxxxz for those 2 sections. Show us that, because that also shows the amount of memory the pc has.

Yes, I figured you had at least seen some instructions, to get to that point, I just wasn't positive which version was involved. I figured to give more detail, than less, I was just walking myself through it. ;)

The Repo: and Info: sections are missing from the inxi report. Was that a mistake? or was output truncated, which would point at some issue. You can run inxi -Irxxxz for those 2 sections.

Re: OK to run "apt upgrade" frequently to upgrade installed apps?

"apt update" is run automatically at 10 minutes after boot and every 2 hours afterward. See Update Manager -> Edit -> Preferences - "Options" tab -> "Auto-refresh". 1 - But before installing each new app I'm thinking I should run... "apt update" to update the local app index... aka local repository....

Re: How much space to put Mint on a flash drive?

The iso is like 1.8-1.9GB, but when you "burn it" it adds some free space. A 2GB stick won't work, but a 4GB will. That's so you can make the live session, installer environment. But if you are doing something like a "usb install" setup, then check this out in the Tutorials section on the forum here...

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

For the power handling issue, ACPI messages, you will have to test a variety of parameters. I don't know some clear exact answer here, but instead of using nomodeset, for graphics related, which doesn't help this case, there are other possible combination(s) that can help, with other kernel modules....

On boot the screen goes blank and after only 5-8 minutes it shows the Nvidia logo and have to wait another 4 min then only it boots.

Re: Linux Mint 20 takes a lot of time to load

Might as well show the output from: systemd-analyze

and: systemd-analyze critical-chain

Also, is there any problem using suspend, and also recovering from suspend? or you don't use that feature when the pc goes to sleep?

And show the output from command: xrandr
