I give up... am checking add for errors and reinstalling P8 today from scratch.  System froze in the motherboards boot options screen 3x in a row... One last attempt to correct password failed again.  I'm  done triaging endlessly...

"Authentication token manipulation error" is nearly always caused by the file system still being mounted as read-only when you attempt to change the password.

Are you sure you followed the instructions fully .. including the bit where you remount the partition read/write ?

positive... and it doesn't work... is the command still
Code: [Select]
mount -o rw,remount / 
I've done this three times in a row this morning, once with sudo in front and all three times was told the password was successfully changed... but when trying to log in... the new password is not accepeted...

also, the wifi dong'e stuff isn't working in the guest session... I'm about to erase ssd and start from scratch...

I meant disable it temporarily so we could see if that microcode bug is the root cause.

Can't fix/workaround an issue if you won't diagnose it ;)

Are there any Windows-only programs that you miss in Linux?

I STILL have yet to find a linux based program that handles photo archiving, renaming and and all as well as IrfanView... http://www.irfanview.com/ just nothing...

thnx but it did not work for me. I enter the username/code and password. It seems it makes a connection but after about 15 seconds it returns to horizon screen.

No, I've not tried disabling hyper-threading. I might do it eventually, but it's  basically a no-go - I need 8 threads as this laptop will run multiple VMs, something I need for my studies. I will do it for debugging purposes at some point though.

Ok, here is the journal for comparison:

So Peppermint also gets the lspcon_init probe failture, but it supresses showing errors on screen(they flashed for <0,5s) and recovers from it.

@PCNetSpec - your memory was correct, Peppermint 8 does run Mesa 17.0.2 by default:
Code: [Select]
pshem@PiDell ~ $ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card-1: Intel Device 591b
           Card-2: NVIDIA Device 1c8c
           Display Server: X.Org 1.19.3 drivers: (unloaded: fbdev,vesa) Resolution: 1920x1080@60.00hz
           GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Kabylake GT2 GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 17.0.2

I'll try installing the newest Mesa from Padoka Stable PPA on Neon, to see if maybe it's a regression in Mesa. If that doesn't work, I'll remove the proprietary nvidia drivers from it and try installing a mainline kernel(I think Ubuntu had .rc's in the kernel PPA)
