Title: Installation Lock-up on AMD A6-9220e Netbook
Post by: TheYield on April 05, 2019, 07:43:07 pm
Hello all,

I've done some digging and can't seem to find a solution to this problem outside of "Install a distro that runs a newer kernel":


I'm able to install Lubuntu 19 nightly without issue on this machine, so I'm wondering how I can get around this problem? Thank you for your help!

It may be a kernel version thing .. Lubuntu 19.04 will be using a newer kernel.

In which case I'm afraid there's nothing you can do except wait for Peppermint 10
(in answer to your next question - some time around May/June)

This got me thinking, the a6 isn't all that new. I wonder if it could be a graphics card problem. Assuming you have Lubuntu installed, could you install inxi and post your

inxi -Fz
back here so we can have a look?
