[Closed] Software rendering with LMDE on external SSD

Post by Sugarcrisp » Thu Jul 18, 2019 10:23 am

I'm currently testing LMDE 3 out on an external SSD. I'm having an issue with it running in software rendering. I don't seem to have any adjustments available. I've been searching for solutions, but most everything that I'm finding is linked to virtual machines. Any help would be appreciated.

I know this link isn't specific to LMDE3, and it is a little old...but perhaps it could offer some clues for you to follow?

Hey Fuzzy,

Thanks for the link. I hadn't found any possible solution for many days, so I decided to replace LMDE without fixing the issue.
