32-bit Users: All Hail Linux 4.18 (Released 12-AUG-2018)
« on: August 13, 2018, 05:48:53 pm »
OMG!  :o

I haven't had any joy running 32-bit Peppermint 9 on top of anything except Linux 4.15, until now.

Mind you, this Dell Dimension 3000 test machine is an oddball, but still, I expected it would run on a newer kernel. My 32-bit Mountain Mods custom game box runs fine on Linux 4.16.

Anyway, so far, so good. I hope I'm not dreaming all this ...

Not sure, but this new kernel is unreal.

Just updated to 4.18-1 and it knocked another 2 sec off my boot time.

This is always interesting stuff.....I am amazed at the speed of Peppermint.

one question, have you disabled 'hddtemp' via systemctl or has it just not appeared on your unit? :-\

Good eye and a keen mind!  :)

No, I didn't disable it.

Interestingly enough , this Dell Dimension 3000 didn't come with any sensors (from the factory), so there's nothing to monitor OOTB.

It does have a NTC thermistor physically sitting under the CPU, which controls the CPU cooling fan speed , but it's not a digital device - thus, no readings available.

Technically speaking, there are two temperature sensors in this machine now - one in the 60GB Patriot Flare SSD - and, one in the nVidia GeForce 8400 GS PCI card.

I monitor the nVidia PC card temps via my Conky script, becaise it has one of those tiiny cooling fans that look cute, but are prone to failure - and usually take out the GPU with it.

Here's the temp on my Patriot Flare, as I type, if you're curious.

Code: [Select]
vindsl@Fenris-2 ~ $ sudo hddtemp /dev/sda
/dev/sda: Patriot Flare: 33C
No worries there...  ;)

.....thats cool! :D

My boot time is slowed a few seconds by the 'hddtemp' but I guess I prefer to have it triggered at boot-up and sacrifice the boot time.

Hey, thanks for your words of wisdom :)

In anticipation of the upcoming 4.19 release, I've started 'file-raping' the Canonical Team Unstable Kernel Repo. LoL  ;D





Here's a Peppermint 7 Xenial/Cosmic Cowboy Build (different 32bit machine than the one above)...

Bwahahahahaha!

I was looking at the dialog above and saw:

Code: [Select]
ID-3: USB /dev/sdc model: Cruzer size: 16.0GB
I wondered where that damned thing went. This machine doesn't have USB ports, accessible from the front.

Guess I must have plugged it in the back and forgot about it...  :D
