Stability Issues with Mate 18.2

Post by liquid_snakensei » Thu Feb 01, 2018 11:16 am

I have recently installed Mate 18.2 onto a new SSD. Everything seems fine except when I watch a video or something the operating system crashes everytime. At first it happened maybe once or twice a day but now its happeneing more consistently. I have tried to do some research but i'm not sure where to start. I've switched to proprietary drivers from noveu drivers but that hasn't helped much.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

You've got a new SSD, but I'm going to guess that your CPU and RAM are original, and may the culprit when you press them to their limits.

Perhaps a try with a lighter-resource version of Linux Mint, such as 18.3 Xfce, may be the answer for that hardware. Or even 17.3 Xfce, which is still supported until April 2019.

You're absolutely right. Thanks for your suggestion, I'm going to go ahead and give it a shot. I'm hoping to learn as much as I can about Linux, apparently I still have a LONG way to go. Thanks again, I really appreciate the help.

You're welcome. There's always something new to learn about Linux, which is one of the reasons why I enjoy it so much. :)
