Thanks PCNetSpec.  That tells me 3.16.0-41-generic, which is what I was after.  Other systems on my laptop show the kernel in use in the grub graphical loader entries, but not Peppermint.

Thanks AndyInMokum, if it's a known bug that's good enough for me, I'll just ignore it. 8)

Installation / Peppermint6 Malformed File? [Unresolved Bug]
« on: July 04, 2015, 12:57:43 pm »
Hi everyone,
I've just installed Peppermint 6 as a clean install on my Dell Latitude D630.  All went well, then after booting into the new system, it offered me a bunch of updates including the new kernel 3.16.0-41
After it had finished, I rebooted, and just to make sure I did sudo update-grub.
I now get the following notice on every boot
Code: [Select]
error: malformed file
press any key to continue
If I leave this to time out, it boots normally anyway, or it will do if I press a key. 
Any ideas what's going on here please?  Thanks.

So, Peppermint 6 is out - I only just found out - oops.  Can anyone tell me how I find out which kernel I'm using please?

Oops.  I've been on Peppermint5 for quite a while now, and only just today noticed that Peppermint6 came out in May - what happened?   :-[

Sorry to find there are no torrents up - I'm now downloading direct.  Where are the torrents?  :o

My experience with SSDs will not be typical.  Being a cheapskate, I have now tried using three of these, all second hand very small ones from fleabay.  (8GB, 16GB)  All have worked to some degree, and then failed after days, weeks or months.  I'm not throwing any more money at them, as my new SATA 3 HDD seems quite fast enough for me now.

Just backup your data (which you should do anyway) the fresh install will be painless.   ;)

Ha!  Painless for some, not for others.  If you want to maintain what you have in your /home then it needs copying somewhere, rather than "backing up".  Depending on the back up system used, a restore would not be good for the new system!  Once the new system is up and running, copy back only the data you need, not any configuration files unless you really know what you are about.
