No it won't change the home folder (or anything else).

When booting the PC, as soon as the BIOS POST screen disappears hit the Shift key to display the GRUB menu .. at the GRUB menu, move down to "Advanced" and hit enter .. then move down to the 4.18 kernel and hit enter to boot it.

Once booted, you can check which kernel you booted into with
Code: [Select]
uname -a
if that reports you're in the 4.18 kernel ... check to see if it freezes.



Then again, if it's stopped freezing, maybe you just got a new kernel update that fixed things.

What people really need to do is ask themselves which of CT, or Ubuntu (and its contributors), they think have done more for the advancement of Linux and the community ?
(despite the odd decision along the way we may have disagreed with)

I think we all know the answer to that ;)

Feeling a need for a little variety in life, and recognizing a few imperfections within Ubuntu for what they are, Ubuntu is still my favorite alternative distribution.   I do have to accept a few stutters when playing YouTube in Firefox within Ubuntu, and I don't feel right using Ubuntu without first Peppermintizing Firefox, or Chromium-based browsers, without first swapping out Canonical's DDG for Peppermint's.  But, overall, I find Ubuntu to be an attractive and secure distribution that generally has its users' best interests in mind.  No question about it, though, Ubuntu GNOME is heavier on system resources than Peppermint, and its forum is NOT always as friendly, user-friendly, helpful, or as forgiving as this forum here.  Still, Ubuntu is a pretty darn good distribution, and without its existence my wife and I wouldn't ever have discovered Peppermint.  Without Ubuntu we would have to have gone years without having had a viable alternative to Windows! :o

I have to give Ubuntu a lot of credit for helping to bring Linux, and an awareness of open source software, to the people. :)

The system has been stable yesterday and today. Strange because it frooze 3 times in a row before i wrote this post.

uname -a gives me:

Linux HP840G2 5.0.0-27-generic #28~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Aug 22 03:00:32 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

dpkg -l | grep linux-image give me:

ii  linux-image-4.18.0-18-generic            4.18.0-18.19~18.04.1                             amd64        Signed kernel image generic
ii  linux-image-5.0.0-25-generic             5.0.0-25.26~18.04.1                              amd64        Signed kernel image generic
ii  linux-image-5.0.0-27-generic             5.0.0-27.28~18.04.1                              amd64        Signed kernel image generic
ii  linux-image-generic-hwe-18.04            5.0.0.27.84                                      amd64        Generic Linux kernel image

Well see if it will freeze again or not. And how do i boot to another kernel? Does it remove my files in my "home folder"?

I've used quite a few different Linux Distros and they all work well on my old desktops.

From the system resource hungry mainstream flagships to the small footprint lightweight Linux Distros.

The only differences I found were resource usage and user interface and one Linux Distro wasn't any better than another Linux Distro.

I can find something wrong with every Linux Distro I've tried or I've used or I'm using now.

Certain Linux Distros work better with certain computers and their hardware and the trick is to match the Linux Distro to the computer and hardware it is going to be installed on and used on.

I install and use OOTB and add very little extras and very rarely have any problems.

If for some reason Ubuntu was to disappear (I doubt that will happen)  I'd migrate to Debian.

How did you get the terminal to look like that, where the prompt is a line bellow the username@pcname? and that linker on the side linking both lines?

I use ZSH and "Oh My ZSH!" for the shell framework in Peppermint - not BASH.

GitHub:  https://github.com/robbyrussell/oh-my-zsh

Website:  http://ohmyz.sh/

The "Oh My ZSH!" theme I use is called Bira.

You will have to try hard to find a simpler tutorial on any subject ! 




Apple Music

There is no official Apple support, but there is an littlel known unofficial way that works extremely well. 

Goto https://musi.sh/ and log in with your Apple ID and password

Now find ICE in your menu and add the website.  Label it "Apple Music", select "site favicon" then add to Multimedia.

Now goto Multimedia in your menu and there is the Apple Music logo.  Right click on it to add to your panel, desktop or favourites.



Google Play Music


The desktop app is a better option than using your browser as it uses less ROM and is harder to close by mistake.  It also has support for YouTube music.  You would need two bookmarks to visit either of these sites using a browser. Again you can use ICE in the same way as above to put this in your panel.

Easy installation and more info at https://www.googleplaymusicdesktopplayer.com/#!

Spotify

Use the linux client. Again, this will be better for ROM use if you are also using a browser.
Easy installation https://www.spotify.com/uk/download/linux/
 
In your multimedia menu, right click if you wish to add Spotify to your panel.


Enjoy  8)

Oh, and (like YT) Reddit is Reddit .. you can find anything on there to support any position you like to take at any given moment :))
(but I guess the one positive is least there's on monetisation motive on Reddit)

Like this: https://is.gd/C0DpJD  :))

How did you get the terminal to look like that, where the prompt is a line bellow the username@pcname? and that linker on the side linking both lines?

No deviled eggs Vin, but witloof/chicory with special potatoes, turkey schnitzel with Stroganoff sauce and cherry icecream  :D

Sounds devilishly good  ;D

I'm a vegetarian, but could eat 55% of that meal...
