User Submitted Tutorials / Re: How To: Use symlinks to a DATA partition
« Last post by Slim.Fatz on November 19, 2019, 10:51:46 am »
BUMP -- to get this important tutorial back onto the first page of the User Submitted Tutorials. Unfortunately, too many new users are too impatient to take the time necessary to look much beyond the first page of the tutorials ...  :(

I've never experienced it before, what is your Broadband like? Maybe do a speed test? If you're wireless and you have other people using the same network for streaming their content, that could affect it. Sometimes though it could be YouTube playing up as, as a site in my opinion it is broken. Do you have your phone connected constantly to Internet as well? Sometimes that can have an affect on other wireless devices. Sometimes with these things a reboot fixes it.  ;D

Okay (whilst still booted to the 5.0.0-36 kernel), open a terminal and run this long command .. make sure you get it all:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get remove --purge linux-generic-hwe-18.04-edge linux-headers-5.3.0-19 linux-headers-5.3.0-19-generic linux-headers-5.3.0-23 linux-headers-5.3.0-23-generic linux-headers-generic-hwe-18.04-edge linux-image-5.3.0-19-generic linux-image-5.3.0-23-generic linux-image-generic-hwe-18.04-edge linux-modules-5.3.0-19-generic linux-modules-5.3.0-23-generic linux-modules-extra-5.3.0-19-generic linux-modules-extra-5.3.0-23-generic
Once that's finished .. REBOOT (without manually selecting any kernel).

Once rebooted, run:
Code: [Select]
uname -a
again.

If it still says 5.0.0-36-generic you're all done.

Installation / Re: Can't choose partition for installation

Hi RTCarman,

After you get the above issue sorted out and everything is running well, then you can read my tutorial about why and how to set up and use a separate DATA partition. I (as well as many others) strongly advise you to set up and use a separate DATA partition.  ;)

If you have questions about the tutorial, please ask them in the tutorial thread (not here in this thread).

Regards,

Hi, I am not in the front of that computer right now but I can answer most of the questions right away.
There is no video buffering - just complete crash with the splash window that asks me if I want to reopen the tab.
I have never had this problem before even with a couple of dozens tabs open with several of them using YouTube.
The computer has 4 GB of RAM. I am using whatever Firefox version came with the Peppermint OS 9.
Iíve been using this computer with Peppermint 9 for about a year and a half or two years. No problems whatsoever.
This current problem might be related to an update, or it maybe a problem with YouTube itself.
I was hoping that someone has seen it before and knows the answer from the top of his or her head.

uname -a gives:

Also depending on how much Ram you have in your system, how many tabs you can have open at one time. Firefox is Ram heavy.  ;D

I have 16GB of Ram on my machine and with this forum open here is a picture of how much ram at the bottom of the picture where it says memory, the first number is usage.

If Pep 10 installs and runs on the thing (and has an active internet connection), open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
wget https://github.com/wimpysworld/umpc-ubuntu/blob/master/umpc-ubuntu.sh
then
Code: [Select]
chmod +x ./umpc-ubuntu.sh
then
Code: [Select]
sudo ./umpc-ubuntu.sh
then reboot.

During the last two days, I have Firefox a tab running Youtube crashing frequently. The other tabs work with no problems. I am not sure what the problem is.

When you say crashing is the video buffering? Are you wired or wireless?? What version of Firefox are you using? How many tabs do you regularly have open at the same time?
Also in a terminal could you type and post the results,
 to give us an idea of what you're running, copy and paste code below into Terminal. Many thanks  ;D

Hi, PCNetSpec, I have not tried it yet. I am not even sure how to run the script.
