Sorry Graeme, didn't get much of a chance to research this today .. I'll try get onto it tomorrow (hopefully).

I **really** want to find an answer to this, it might be a nice inclusion for PM10 if we can reliably backport it from 19.04.

Don't worry Mark I can hang on to it a bit longer the guy's not pushing me for it back, it would be nice if I can hand it over to him with everything working well and if it helps Peppermint all the better :)

Have you still got nomodeset manually added as a kernel boot parameter ?

When ? .. when did it become no longer necessary ?

Are you up for trying an 18.10 distro, such as Xubuntu 18.10 .. just as a LiveUSB so we can see the inxi output (after installing inxi of course) ?



If that works, and you have this PC for a day or two, I'm up for building you a custom ISO with the HWE pre-installed as a test (and possibly a solution).

I removed it after we installed the 5 series kernel and it boots fine in the 4.18 I've never tried it with the 4.15 kernel so far

Okey dokey :)

No real need to "install" it yet, just boot to a Live session, install inxi, and post the output.

Yeah .. needs to be 18.10

NEEDS to be 18.10
http://releases.ubuntu.com/18.10/ubuntu-18.10-desktop-amd64.iso

Although it'd also be nice to test 18.04.2
(but must be the .2 or higher version)
because that also uses the 4.18 kernel from the HWE .. so it'd be good to see if that works if 18.10 does .. then if 18.04.2 doesn't but 18.10 does, I can try figure out what's different in a VM.

Did that make sense ?
