Hello ladies & gents, i'm back from a vacation.... had a great time wandering the Southwest...

Before we left, new & supposedly mighty Antec desktop had some difficulty installing the 4.4.0-72 kernel...  the system kept hanging at 
Code: [Select]
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-72-generic
After a few attempts to boot & reboot, i shut the machine down and we left... now I am attempting to remove the offending kernel, while booted into the prior kernel.

Why? Because there is no simply booting into the latest nor the previous kernel without many cold hard boots while holding any of the normal keys. Shift does nothing, holding down shift & tab does things randomly... i can sometimes get int the bios with the delete key, but 90% of the time the computer freezes on the bios menu.

So moving along with this advice from a previous post https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,2215.msg21538.html#msg21538 like before, my system hangs at
Code: [Select]
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-72-generic
and goes nowhere

 :) After 10 minutes, Synaptic finally resolved generating intramfs... after an 8 minute + closing of the Peppermint reboot screen, I opted for an REISUB ... and am now happily and successfully booted into

where i intend to remain for the foreseeable future, unless there is some dire warning and necessity to update kernels.

This machine has been a great disappointment, I expected speed, its no faster than my 2012 generic laptop...

Yep, always a good idea, I generally only keep the latest and the previous (just in case).

So... first boot of today took me again to the frozen motherboard boot menu, i had to do quite a bit of messing about with shift, tab & escape keys to  boot into peppermint. i have yet to see the peppermint boot screen today. I decided the best fix would be to reinstall the 4.4.0-72 kernel in the hopes of the regerneration of update-intramfs would clear up whatever is going on within the grub menu.

in a word no...  now running:

Code: [Select]
spence@antec ~ $ sudo update-grub
[sudo] password for spence:
Generating grub configuration file ...
Warning: Setting GRUB_TIMEOUT to a non-zero value when GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT is set is no longer supported.

Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-64-generic
Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.elf
Found memtest86+ image: /memtest86+.bin
done
In hopes that will help me boot smoothly, I'll attend to the non-working wifi in this kernel later. UGH

Let us know how you get on, and/or if you need help recompiling the wireless drivers (new topic for the wireless drivers please .. or the old topic if you can find it).

Can you boot the earlier kernel ? .. if so just remove the newer one.

not in the normal fashion, thus far holding the shift key during reboot, boots me straight into this kernel... haven't seen the peppermint options screen in the last 48 hours... let me give it another shot... there's also some error with the bios wanting to boot the USB stick... beginning to think a reinstall might be best, but I'll await some further thoughts...  :-\

both reboots locked up with a line about my harddrive and numbers of blocks, requiring REISUB both times... both reboots ignoring the holding of the shift key and coming straight back to this kernel

Re: locked up: update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-4.4.0-72
« Reply #14 on: April 20, 2017, 04:47:39 pm »
Run:
Code: [Select]
sudo pluma /etc/default/grub
find the line that reads:-
Code: [Select]
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
and change it to
Code: [Select]
GRUB_DEFAULT="1>3"
SAVE the file and exit pluma.

Back in the terminal run:
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
Now reboot.

It should boot into the 4.4.0-66 kernel .. check this with
Code: [Select]
uname -a
if it says you're booted to the 4.4.0-66 kernel .. first change that line back to:
Code: [Select]
GRUB_DEFAULT=0
and re-run
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
Now uninstall the 4.4.0-72 kernel BEFORE rebooting.
