[Solved - sort of] kernel 4.15.0-48 won't shutdown (CInnamon 19.1)

Post by WiltshireJon » Wed May 01, 2019 5:22 am

As it says in the title. Since updating to the -48 kernel my laptop won't shutdown. If I go to the menu and try shutdown from there it starts to shutdown (very briefly) then almost immediately takes me to the login screen - the one you get when you initially boot up from complete shutdown. Top right of this screen is a shutdown button - clicking on this brings up options to quit and something-else-I've-forgotten; clicking on the quit option does nothing, dead button. Can shutdown from terminal "REISU0".

This is a new fault to me and doesn't happen on earlier kernels...I'm currently using -47 which works as advertised. Up to now the laptop has been rock solid since installing 19.1. Marked as solved as reverting to an older kernel fixes the issue.

You can remove the .48 kernel so that .47 will be the only installed kernel and can boot as default without the need to choose from multiple kernels.
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

I am using Mint 19.2 Cinnamon 64 bit with AMD A8/7410 processor . Memory 8GB
