Have had an issue whereby when I login to Pepp OS 8 on my laptop it will sometimes logs me into a blank screen (no Desktop), & hangs there with various repeated messages about kworker not loading different modules. I can login to a tty but when I try to

As you can see I have dual graphics cards however no propriety drivers are installed (although optimus is enabled in the BIOS)

Another peculiarity about my install is that I somehow managed to install my Pepp partition (sda5 as a logical partition wholly within an extended partition sda1 - which is also the boot partition)  :-X
