Re: suspend restart immediatly…

Thus I guess Kernel or module incompatibility with hardware, but I don't know how to solve that. By the way, one questions is… is it really important to follow the "latest" ...

I use an old eeepc with a broken screen for that. the processor power is more than enough for sharing files, having an email server and a webserver (apache) running on it. So it is my own central point, with partial cloud options (webmai...

Re: impossible to logout and to switch betweer users

Hi,

This solution has worked.

There is only the Switch between user to solve. But that's a Cinnamon issue, as when logged with Gnome 3, the option is available and works.

Thanks for your help

Re: Unable to change CPU Frequency and Govenor?

It is much more likely to be a problem due to change of the kernel than of change of Gnome.

You have to found which module run with your CPU. You can see your CPU is not known by your kernel, that means you don't have the proper module…

During the boot, can you select a previous kernel?

Re: impossible to logout and to switch between users.

The CTRL ALT BACKSPACE works again, but I don't know why.

But still can't find the switch to another user… neither able to logout normally.

Thanks for your help anyway.
