Bad update?

Post by thobin » Sun Mar 24, 2019 10:14 am

I'm still using 18.3 on several different machines and I keep them up to date. I don't do it every day but it never goes more than 2 week between the updates. The last batch in the last two weeks or so, is crashing Cinnamon and going to fallback mode. All are level 1 or 2 save the last two. I normally just do all the updates as in 4 years I have yet to have a problem. Till this week. I have already restored the two machines that this fraged back to working order. Got to love time shift. I will work each item in the update till I find the offending one but I thought I would ask here first if any one knows of a problem? The two level 4 files are below, It didn't matter what kernel I boot into so I assume it isn't the kernel update.

Linux kernel 4.4.0-143.169 The Linux Kernel is responsible for hardware and drivers support. Note that this update will not remove your existing kernel. You will still be able to boot with the current kernel by choosing the advanced options in your boot menu. Please be cautious though.. kernel regressions can affect your ability to connect to the Internet or to log in graphically. DKMS modules are compiled for the most recent kernels installed on your computer. If you are using proprietary drivers and you want to use an older kernel, you will need to remove the new one first.


Linux-Libc-dev (4.4.0-143.169) This package provides headers from the Linux kernel. These headers are used by the installed headers for GNU glibc and other system libraries. They are NOT meant to be used to build third-party modules for your kernel. Use linux-headers-* packages for that.

Any ideas,thanks?

The -dev package is even less likely to cause a problem unless there's an issue with a propriertary driver (we don't know since you didn't provide any inxi -Fxz info). So your problem possibly isn't with any of the level 4 updates, but feel free to apply just those two before applying anything else and see if you still run into the issue.

If you had a firmware, graphics driver or mesa update in there I'd say that's a good candidate for a culprit, too.

If you have an nvidia graphics card, this may be your problem:

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they ain't.

Hadn't seen that one. What an excellent example of why levels have to go. ;)

It is the kernel update the link you provided is the fix. It does have to do with the Nvidia driver.

Thanks
