@spence

Back is still killing me so can't spend too much time ATM searching, but if you still have the 4.10 kernel installed can you boot to that and post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz


As for the splash screen not displaying, have you removed btrfs-tools yet (if you're not using btrfs)
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge btrfs-toolsI wasn't getting the splash screen until I did that.

I only have room for two kernels apparently, used to hold four or so (guess kernels have swollen lately?)... and that kernel has been gone for quite some time... also purging appamor, bluez, btrfs & samba are the first things done after all fresh installs... sorry about your back, too much snow shoveling?

Can you post the:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fzoutput from a Peppermint 8 Respin LiveUSB ?

btrfs-tools is always the first thing I remove in hopes of trimming boot time.  Sorta scratching my head about when my graphics driver went on walkabout? Nor how to knock it about to get it back...

this is my only machne now, all laptops donated elsewhere

Okay spence try this...

Boot to the 4.13.0-26 kernel

Now download this file, and double-click it to install
https://download.01.org/gfx/ubuntu/16.04/main/pool/main/i/intel-graphics-update-tool/intel-graphics-update-tool_2.0.2_amd64.deb
once that's installed, open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
wget --no-check-certificate https://download.01.org/gfx/RPM-GPG-GROUP-KEY-ilgthen
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-key add RPM-GPG-GROUP-KEY-ilgthen
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/lsb-releaseand make it read
Code: [Select]
# DISTRIB_ID=Peppermint
# DISTRIB_RELEASE=8
# DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial
# DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Peppermint 8 Eight"

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=16.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 16.04 LTS"
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Now run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get updatethen go to:-

Menu > Preferences > Intel® Graphics Update Tool for Linux* OS

and step through the installation of the graphics drivers.

Once that's completed without error .. REBOOT.

Once rebooted, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge intel-graphics-update-toolthen
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get autoremovethen
Code: [Select]
gksudo xed /etc/lsb-releaseand make it read
Code: [Select]
DISTRIB_ID=Peppermint
DISTRIB_RELEASE=8
DISTRIB_CODENAME=xenial
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Peppermint 8 Eight"
SAVE the file and exit the text editor.

Now post the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fzand
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/lsb-releaseand
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep intel-graphics-update-tool
[EDIT]

Why is this in a topic clearly labelled "Peppermint 7" when we're now talking about Peppermint 8 ? .. also this should have been in a SUPPORT topic of it's own, not buried in a GENERAL DISCUSSION topic about something completely different.

Not only is nobody with the same issue going to be able to find this, but there's absolutely no chance of marking this as (SOLVED) if a working solution is found.

[EDIT]

Why is this in a topic clearly labelled "Peppermint 7" when we're now talking about Peppermint 8 ? .. also this should have been in a SUPPORT topic of it's own, not buried in a GENERAL DISCUSSION topic about something completely different.

Not only is nobody with the same issue going to be able to find this, but there's absolutely no chance of marking this as (SOLVED) if a working solution is found.

My apologies, was following previously preferred protocols from old peppermint forums to "search for your issue" before asking question.... I recollected vinDSL's excellent thread about speeding up bootand rolled thru all that applied to my slow boot issues... but still found my boot slow... so I asked here... then you mentioned the "where is your graphics driver?"

I am happy to ask the question again in a new thread if you wish, so you can delete my portion from this thread if you prefer?

We'll deal with it here this time, but in future... ;)

I'm gonna need to do some more homework on this tomorrow spence .. maybe kaby lake needs a more recent kernel.

I'll see what I can dig up tomorrow.

[EDIT]

Generally the protocol would be to search for it first, and if you come across something related still start a new topic, but link back to the relevent topic in your new one :) .. Support topics should always be new (so owned by you), always a single subject, and always have a descriptive title. The reason being so they can be marked as (SOLVED) if/when a solution is found, thereby helping others searching for a known working solution.

Whilst I go through your dmesg output, is Chromium (or whatever it was) still crashing ?
