Installation / Re: Boot issue after kernel update
« on: July 28, 2015, 12:54:25 pm »
Well, I got impatient with this whole thing and installed xubuntu UEFI, works good so far. I don't really have time to mess around hour after hour with this at this point in time, already lost a whole day to it.  I still have peppermint on other computers though, so I haven't given up on ya. :(

The disk should not be corrupt, I switched it with another and installed PM6, still got the minimal bash. That was before I switched back to the first disk and went legacy though...

it fails at "scanning for btrfs filesystems" which ever kernel I choose now.

if I let it boot without pressing shift then it halts with a blank screen.

Update:

it doesn't seem that simple. Somtimes it boots, sometimes it doesn't. I changed default in /etc/default/grub and after grub-update it halts at "scanning for btrfs filesystems". Cannot boot at all now on that computer...

Installation / Boot issue after kernel update
« on: July 28, 2015, 05:24:22 am »
Hi. Some info for you developers and a question.

I had this computer with peppermint 5 since it came out, working perfectly. UEFI install on my Asus v111p. Updated about once each month and sorted out a few issues after kernel updates some times, no big deal.

A few days ago i updated, and saw there was a kernel update. Since there was no issues the latest times of kernel updates I just let it update and rebooted.

Kernel panic, had to reboot again. Booted fine, used the computer, turned it off.

Turned it on later, halted on black screen, nothing. Rebooted, booted fine, used the computer, turned it off.

Next day, turned it on, halted on black screen. Rebooted about 15 times, same thing but suddenly I was presented wit the "Minimal BASH" screen.

Booted a livecd and chrooted myself into the installation and did a update-grub after trying to downgrade the kernel, no success there.

Downloaded PM6, booted the live, made an install after wiping the disk completely. Same thing, tried boot-repair, same thing.

Finally, as i'm very busy and just want the frickin confuser to work I switched to legacy mode and installed the 32 bit version of PM6. Works fine.

Updated the kernel to latest, rebooted, and it refuse to boot and halt on black screen. Gaaaahhh!. I can press ESC whe booting and choose the old kernel and then it works fine. The latest kernel = no es bueno para ÚstÓ computadora.

My question is: how do I make it choose the old kernel automatically?

YES! It works. Should I add "solved" to the subject line? After all I would concider it a workaround but problem is solved in practicality.

When I run "/usr/bin/ppmcc-startup" yes, it starts to work.

Thanks a bunch so far. I'll put that in my autostart list.

Hardware / [SOLVED] Minimal problem with scrolling after kernel update
« on: February 22, 2015, 03:03:44 am »
So, it's just nagging me. I tend to use the horisontal two-finger scrolling on my peppermint laptop and after kernel update (which always make me a bit nervous because there's always things that gets screwed up with a kenel update, really annoying) the horisontal scrolling doesn't work anymore.

I can go to peppermint control, keyboard & pointer, untick the "tho finger horizontal scrolling" and just tick it again and it works again. I have to do this every restart which gets me wondering if there is any command I could put in autostart that would do the same...

Hardware / Re: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 - Bluetooth issue

Ok, back to 3.13 and things working as they should a part from bluetooth. Phew....

Thank you so much for the time spent here, I suppose I can live with non-bluetooth. Probably I will put som distro with working BT on a pendrive to use when I want to transfer files to/from phones and stuff. As I said I can live with that and I suspect BT will work in peppermint 6 :)

Again, thanks for the time!

oh, and:

ii  linux-headers-3.18.0-031800rc5-generic                      3.18.0-031800rc5.201411162035               amd64        Linux kernel headers for version 3.18.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-image-3.18.0-031800rc5-generic                        3.18.0-031800rc5.201411162035               amd64        Linux kernel image for version 3.18.0 on 64 bit x86 SMP

Seems to be no way to enter grub menu with pressing shift, I had to modify /etc/default/grub to show it. Can it be because I boot in UEFI mode?

Anyway, can I simply uninstall the three packages I just installed to go back to "normal"? Absence of bluetooth is not fatal for me, most other thing works so good so I don't want to screw this sytem up too much...
