Networking / Re: RDP from Win 10 toP9
« Last post by murraymint on March 19, 2019, 12:31:11 pm »

NoMachine works well from my limited testing. Seems like a no frills TeamViewer but it doesn't leave the "Thanks for playing fair" splash on the target machine. I'll play a bit more, but for my needs, I think I have found a winner. I like that it automagically finds machines on your network so you don't have to remember PC names or IP's, they're just there.  ;) :D
I didn't do any testing with anydesk

I use NoMachine all the time and it's pretty good. The only thing that doesn't really work is if you remote into a PC with dual displays from one with only one display, you won't be able to see anything that should be on the second screen.

I use Anydesk since Teamviewer shut me down for commercial use which I wasn't,

I would wholeheartedly recommend Anydesk maybe not quite as polished as Teamviewer but does what it says on the tin, the big problem is the interface/theming is seriously wonky and  almost unreadable since 18.04

That's pretty much what I do .. though one of these days I want to try AnyDesk (and also NoMachine NX again, haven't tried NX in ages so I really should look again .. it used to be teriffic).

Remember, if it won't boot you should still be able to choose the 4.18 kernel from the GRUB menu.

It booted up fine but it's made no perceivable difference to the video playback, but that said I can now boot without nomodeset

Okay then, in Peppermint run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/kernel-5.0.2
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/kernel-5.0.2
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0.2/linux-headers-5.0.2-050002_5.0.2-050002.201903131832_all.deb
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.0.2/linux-headers-5.0.2-050002-generic_5.0.2-050002.201903131832_amd64.deb
then

then
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
once finished, REBOOT (you may need to disable secureboot in your BIOS)

Once rebooted, post the output from

I'll keep hunting, but are you up for testing the 5.0 kernel in Peppermint ?

I had a feeling that's where you were going with this

Yeah I'm up for it :)

Just as a point of interest Ubuntu 19.04 booted and run no problem without nomodeset, unfortunately I can't test video playback as there seems to be no codecs installed

See that's what I was expecting .. amdgpu as the driver instead of the framebuffer driver you're currently getting in Peppermint.

I'll keep hunting, but are you up for testing the 5.0 kernel in Peppermint ?

I've been using Stubby within Peppermint 9 along with Quad9's DNS for a while now, and I've had no issues with it whatsoever.  I've also tried Stubby along with Google's Public DNS.   (It works with Cloudflare's DNS too.)  So what the heck is Stubby anyway?  'Stubby' is an application that acts as a local DNS Privacy stub resolver (using DNS-over-TLS). Stubby encrypts DNS queries sent from a client machine (desktop or laptop) to a DNS Privacy resolver increasing end user privacy. (Source:  DNS Privacy Project)

Google is the fifth entity which decided to add DNS-over-TLS support to its public DNS resolver service, with Cloudflare, CleanBrowsing, Quadrant Information Security, and Quad9 being the first companies to do it. -- Sergiu Gatlan

Source: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/google/google-adds-dns-over-tls-support-to-its-public-dns-service/

Stubby is easy to install and test.  It's much easier to install than DNSCrypt with which it is frequently contrasted. ;)
