Installation / Problem with 5.4.0-42-generic Kernel
« on: August 12, 2020, 11:18:01 am »
I upgraded my wife's Dell Inspiron 15 laptop with the 5.4.0-42-generic Kernel. When I rebooted I got the "kernel panic" screen. I removed it and reverted back to the 5.3.0-62-generic kernel and it boots fine. I also upgraded to 5.4.0-42-generic on my HP-Compaq DC5800 and no problem at all. Wonder if anyone else has experienced this problem?

What are you running Peppermint on? / HP-Compaq-dc5800

I've been using Peppermint 10 for about 6 months now. It wouldn't load on this machine at first. I had to change my BIOS to v. 1.60, which didn't show up when I ran a HP search for this machine. I found out how to get it on a YouTube video. Since then I've had no difficulties whatsoever. I love it. I've also loaded it on my wife's laptop. She loves it too.

The only problem I can recall having is just a couple of times when browsing with Firefox the screen got stuck in minimize. But I closed the tab and reopened, everything was fine.
