Installation / Re: Dual boot windows 7 alongside peppermint
« on: October 21, 2019, 12:07:59 pm »
Can you boot to a Peppermint LiveUSB and post the output from
Code: [Select]
sudo fdisk -l
Code: [Select]

Could it be kernel issue maybe.

It certainly could be as Mint is running the 4.15 kernel from 18.04, where Peppermint 10 is running the 5.0.0 kernel from 19.04

Try Peppermint 9 instead:
then if you wish follow this tutorial to upgrade Peppermint 9 --> Peppermint 10, but keeping Peppermint 9's 4.15 kernel:,8442.msg86655.html#msg86655

a) Can you please copy/paste the terminal output AS TEXT into this forum .. pictures aren't searchable.


b) Even in your picture you have a window covering half the text :-\

Software & Applications / Re: upgrade from P8 to P10
« on: October 21, 2019, 11:51:57 am »

The OP asked about Peppermint EIGHT and TEN, not 9 & 10 .. so both are NOT supported until 2023.

Peppermint 7 & 8 are both supported until 2021
(based on 16.04 and supported for 5 years from the 2016)

Peppermint 9 & 10 are both supported until 2023
(based on 18.04 and supported for 5 years from the 2018)

As for the original question...

so my question is: should i upgrade to Peppermint 10?
what are the advantages to doing so?

Besides the more recent base, and the fact there MAY be a FEW newer pieces of software that require that newer base .. NO there's not really any huge benefit from moving to Peppermint 10 (specially if you already have all the working software you require) .. unless any of the new features that came with Peppermint 9, 9 respin, and 10 are any use to you.

The new features can be read about in any of these three release announcements (For Peppermint 9, 9 respin, and 10):-
If any of those new features and tweaks take your fancy, then sure upgrade .. if not there's no rush, just do it whenever you're ready.

Yes, I see the point of  the improvment, I've listen to the talk and some of it sounds good.
Still,... baking another function into systemd and push it down your throat doesn't feel like the correct way to do it.

Agreed, I'm not an 'integrated and indivisible' systemd fan and I'd much prefer it to be more 'standalone' .. but if systemd is already there, why not use it.....
(it's one of those chicken and egg/catch 22 situations)

From within Mint, can you give us the output from:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Fz

Great news :)

Whilst I'm usually no fan of systemd for many reasons (and I'll probably end up hating the implementation .. specially if done by LP via systemd), this particular area is something that actually COULD do with a little work and truly portable logins/home folders actually peaks my interest (if it can be done securely).

If you hit the Esc key, is there any text displayed onscreen ?

Why not install Peppermint 9, then follow this tutorial to upgrade PM9 --> PM10 but without the newer kernel and xorg stack from the hwe-18.04 (hardware enablement stack) .. which is likely where the problem lies.,8442.msg86655.html#msg86655

Basically you'd end up with Peppermint 10, but with Peppermint 9's kernel and xorg stack (ie. the kernel and xorg stack from the original 18.04 which both PM9 and PM10 are based on instead of the updated ones from 19.04).

Yeah that's fine .. the important bits were the bits marked in red in:-

No, not without downgrading xorg (ie. using an old version of xorg that worked with FGLRX) .. that aint gonna be easy (if possible at all).

It hasn't 'left you' .. it just requires a different kernel .. as I said, you could install Peppermint 9 then follow the instructions to upgrade Peppermint 9 --> Peppermint 10 but stop at the point where you'd upgrade the kernel.

The other option is for us to attempt to DOWNgrade the Peppermint 10 kernel to the one used in Peppermint 9 .. if you want help with this, please post the output I requested.

The Peppermint 9 kernel is a long term support kernel .. it will be FULLY supported for the lifetime of Peppermint 10.

Have you got a Peppermint (or Ubuntu/Mint/etc.) LiveUSB ?

If so, boot to the LiveUSB and choose "Try Peppermint" .. once at the desktop, (without doing anything else that might mount the partition) open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
sudo fsck /dev/sda6
and see if that fixes your file system.

BE AWARE:- fsck must NOT be run on a mounted file system, hence why I'm saying run it from a LiveUSB without doing anything else.
