Hi all

Am going to install Peppermint 8 here soon and was wondering what thoughts you may have using hdparm and doing a low-level format of SSD as opposed to methods mentioned in the thread. Thank you in advance for your help.


Thank you for this tutorial. I was about to reinstall when I saw this.

What are you running Peppermint on? / New build

Try adding ( i915.i915_enable_rc6=1 ) to grub.conf as shown here...

The conflict between Intel video chip and Mesa drivers cause it to overheat and shutdown. Had a similar deal with a build I did for my big brother and this is what solved it for me. Of course..YMMV

Mesa 10 fixed it on my brothers computer..I see you are at Mesa 9

Hope this helps
