Thanks, I had totally forgotten about that site  :)

I will try again next week with Peppermint 10 using Realtek RTL8821CE from --> https://pkgs.org/search/?q=Realtek%20RTL8821CE


Since I am on a USB Stick reconfig'ing a Linux distro is easy-peasy   LOL

Thx/Bill

 >:(

OK, please don't be mad BUT ... I jumped back into Linux Mint 19.3 and downloaded old Ubuntu WiFi drivers to get WiFi working ><

Now networking basically screams because it has two interfaces to work with - Ethernet and WiFi   lol


Thx/Bill  8)

Edited the SUBJECT.  But as I said - this is a really good system - Ethernet works fine:

32GB RAM, 2TB SSD, Vega 10, DVDRW, HDMI, Card Reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Windows 10 Pro ... but I will run Peppermint 10 :P  lol

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Ryzen 7 3700U 32GB RAM

 >:(  ok, AMD got back to me, said there were no drivers for Linux ... so I am stuck with Winders for now.  Not a huge loss as I am gonna change careers anyways ...

So, everybody take care :)  I will c'ya :)

And, so, the WiFi drivers don't work -- not sure why - but I have tried other distro's and it see's the interface buty don't not plumb up --
Network:   Card-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller driver: r8169

           IF: N/A state: N/A mac: N/A ... 

I guess it really doesn't matter - as I indicated in an earlier post in this thread I was learning to be a day trader and will be using M$'louch more often ...  The Ethernet plug works just fine and I never really liked Wifi anyhow  :)   lol

 ???   Well I am learning how to be a day trader - hence the Windows 10 - Day Trading software doesn't work on Linux ><

32GB RAM will be just enough to run the s/w and the video card plus HDMI I will have three video screens for trade tracking    >:(   LOL  :)

Hardware / Re: RAID drives
« on: January 08, 2020, 06:40:49 am »
ok, in the short answer - you can't ... the long answer is you can install a vm and run windows to access the RAID but a driver created for Winders isn't gonna run on Linux ... not yet.  Maybe when Microsoft completely switches to Linux we could maybe but that day isn't here yet.

Sorry/Bill

ok, I ran a badblocks check on all three partitions of this 4TB drive- no bad blocks were found.  The only thing I can think of now is maybe that graphics file BUT I did not change them in my efforts to upgrade to 10.  Did the steps up to this point and rebooted -- I Did Not Do any steps afrer -
Menu > Settings > Customise Look and Feel ...

So I thought it should just work - was that not a good thought?  Anyways; upgrade to 10 some step before Menu > Settings > Customise Look and Feel caused the video to crash.   Maybe I will try again later next year ... for now I am stopping, I just want it to be stable; on 9 it seems to be happy.

ok; I have never been patient lol...  So I did the 9 to 10 upgrade and immediately rebooted to the video crash.  Thankfully I have tonight and tomorrow to get back to Pep9. ><   lol

reinstalling once more ... Yippy!   but At 9 I will stop...  Something in ten does not like my video. :/


oh well

Cool, all working fixes are always appreciated .. if they work in Mint, it's HIGHLY likely they'll work in Peppermint :)

ok... I am sort of in a bad mood because less than 1 hour after posting my 'fix' possibility I got this again https://i.imgur.com/Uwb4kq1.png ... but now ssh into the system stopped working - the thing completely locked up... so I am back in Pep 9 ... been there since 7pm Christmas night ... watched a dvd ripped a dvd and still cannot force a vid  crash in 9 so I will stay in 9 until it breaks ... hopefully it won't ...

Happy Holidays :)

OK, just wanted to keep you guys updated -- even tho I am in Linux Mint 19.3 MATE I wanted to let you know I have made a 5 line change to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf - if it fixes the Video Crashes I will tell this forum what I added ...   I might just reinstall PeppermintOS 10 and test that first before I say anythin' here  ><

Cheers / Bill :)
