No it shouldn't be necessary .. but it's a workaround.

There's a possibility that the password database in chromium is corrupt .. we can rename the chromium config directory if you like (it will then be recreated) but you'll loose any customisation/bookmarks/passwords/etc.)

Let me know if you'd like to try that.

IAs we'l be renaming (not deleting) the cconfig directory, this  WILL be undo-able if it doesn't work.

can you REBOOT, then without running the above commands (so wifi is still not working) run:
Code: [Select]
lsmodthen copy the output to a text file.

now run the 2 commands to get wireless back .. then post that output back here.

Installation / Re: PM5 always pausing at start-up

There would  be a MAJOR downside if you installed using the btrfs file system .. but unless you manually set up the partitions and chose btrfs as the file system you won't be (the installer defaults to the "ext4" file system)

You can check with:
Code: [Select]
sudo blkidand look for
TYPE="btrfs"

Or install and use gparted to list the partitions on your hard drive .. then look under "File System" for any partitions listed as btrfs .. as in this pic



If you haven't any, it's safe to remove btrfs-tools

But you won't be using btrfs unless you SPECIFICALLY chose it.

Irony.

So true :)

New Users / Re: Installation possible crash on format

If you're getting an input/output error I can only assume something has gone wrong.

A format shouldn't take hours anyway unless of course you have a 10 zettabyte hard drive ;)

I'd cross my fingers and reboot .. but at the end of the day the decision is yours.

Seriously .. my desktop does the same and has for years ;)

Who knows .. it might even be a "feature" so you can charge USB devices with the PC turned off

I doubt it .. in any case it's nothing to worry about.

Is this a laptop or desktop ?

If I were you, I'd boot to the Peppermint 5 LiveCD/LiveUSB .. then (after backing up any user data) use Gparted to delete all partitions on the hard drive .. then reinstall Peppermint using the default settings.
