strange glitches

Post by XP Refugee »

updated to current version, still had probs and restored to 21 Vera on MATE. First it was videos...I'd click on it, the screen would go black and then open the log in page. Then is started doing this with a simple text file. Odd thing IS that if I put the video on a storage drive, it will play without kicking me to the log in page

the second annoyance is the Auto feature on Updates. It USED TO WORK. Now, no matter how many times I uncheck it, restart and check it it WILL NOT AUTO UPDATE.

any ideas?

Could be your root directory is filling.
in a terminal run this inquiry:

Code: Select all

df -h
Does that show anything with high usage %
particularly the line mounted on /
Everything in life was difficult before it became easy.

I guess your system is sufferring regression with the latest 5.15 kernel. I believe you can still upgrade to 21.3 while your kernel is locked (i.e. not updating). This guide will help in locking your system https://easylinuxtipsproject.blogspot.c ... 2.html#ID7 after that you can proceed in upgrading to 21.3
Please make sure to make a timeshift snapshot prior to this as a safety net

interesting...why do I want to lock it?
I may take the lazy way out and format the disk, then remove the drive from my other desktop and use wavlink to clone it.
thanks for the input, never heard of locking a kernel and still not sure why one would do it.
