Just an update: I just felt that the amount of trouble to recover compared to just doing a fresh install and going to Cinnamon (with the 19.0 beta) was worth it, rather than hassle. I wanted more room for my boot drive and wanted a UEFI partition too. I have a new question but it needs and entirely ...

Re: kernel cleaning problems

Yes, followed that, thank you, it's somehow failing. I've also lost use of firefox and have to use a different browser. It will boot though.

I'm not on that computer at the moment, I've got to go take care of thing and I'll come back later on to diagnose if it's ok?
