Installation / Re: ceneric installation problem with 18lts versions
« on: October 08, 2018, 02:27:35 am »
9 installed without a problem and that is great!.
to bad i don't know what the problem was because i think not all the older systems will have updates to solve the boot problems.
peppermint 8 is a good alternative, but i mist the integration of the MS office online

but after a strange event.
at first peppermint would not start with the previous kernel that was updated the last time, same kernel panic.
in Win10 i could find a bios update for the computer, installed it and then could boot peppermint again.
it than had the update ready for the shown kernel 4.15.0-36-generic x86_64 (64 bit)

i am now downloading peppermint 9 again 64 bits and try again booting and installing it

i will look into  that bug report thing.
problem will be, i think, that its a live USB that will not boot, so how could i pull some log files from that?

maybe you could answer me 1 thing.
is their a  terminal command that will upgrade the peppermint 8 to 9?
than we could find out if it is just the boot material ore the kernel itself?

if you can not afford new hardware and with every major update of win10 there are problems than their is no fun anymore working with computers.
the time that it is consuming is enormous if you have multiple devices.
now with Peppermint, i enjoy being online again and can use my time with my hobby's and not fixing windows.

i know, there are some minor problems.
1 i could not read the artikel with firefox
2 i wanted to copy some files to a sd card to open it later in windows to fix a smartphone, and i can't use them in windows.

but still the fun is much greater than working with win10.
don't want to go back

its just so strange to experience problems booting a live dvd ore USB and you get problems.
i started this topic  with the same problem so it seems,7572.0.html

and some old system have got starting this problem after 18lts.
peppermint 8 will start up, 9 gives kernel panic.
trying to get people enthusiast trying linux is always with older hardware, so not fine if things don work

Thank you PCNetSpec.
i am now downloading the Xubuntu iso and will do a testrun to see if that will solve it in the future

looking at the links of HP/compaq problems this seems te be the same problem as happens to me.
i will have to look if there are newer bios version but i doubt that

I would like to mention an observation with installations based on the 18lts ubuntu version.
i use older gear, (minimal 4 gig memory and dual core cpu) laptops and desktops and experience huge problems with bootable USB and DVD disks.
ubuntu, lubuntu, linux light, and also peppermint 9 will come to the bootmenu screen, but after that, choosing trying the distro, ore installing the distro i get a kernel panic.
tried all of these distro's with 32 an 64 bits, tried rufus for the USB stick creation but it will not help.

BUT!!!!.  a version of robolinux based on the 16lts, and now peppermint 8 (64 bits) will start up to, just like puppy linux.

in this case ( and another) the problems are on a hp/compaq  office desktop with pentium dual core that in an earlier stage worked with linux before (16lts linux light)

so i hope that i can upgrade peppermint 8 to 9 later on, but its strange that all this goes wrong right now, and it would be a shame that thoose who would try it for the first time would get disappointed  at boot already

i had some bootup problems with an elitebook 2530p.
used a usb cardreader with an SD card, and used a DVD with a peppermint iso burnt to it but they would not boot.
what worked for me was putting the SD card straight in the SD card slot of the laptop and then made a bootable peppermint device with it.
(bios had a choice to boot up from SD card and activated that)

strange thing was that several distros like linux light, ore puppy linux had no problem with the usb card reader routing.

o, before i forget, if you get in the screen of peppermint with the bootmenu, have patience.
when used the enter key it took a while before it started

boot from the moment that grub shows and i select peppermint with 'enter'  to the logon screen is 50 sec. and that is the same as before.
but i am thinking, its still much faster than win10, so why bother, ore is it slower than it should?

Did 2 installations on older laptops.
acer extensa 5230E with 4 gig memory, no problems so far, fast installation.
the elitebook with 4 Gig internal memory was a little problem machine. installation had more problems that started finding the right way to boot a medium like cd ore USB stick.
in some cases the boot up would hang and two lightes with locks would flash
succes was when i made a bootable sdcard to use in the intern SD card reader.
you have to be patient with both after bootup.
the screen with bootoptions seems to stay forever but after some time it will go on with the proces

the results are here

(strangly copying the dmesg > ~/Desktop/dmesg.txt  and pasting it in the terminal gives me a message that the file does not exist)

here is the outcome of the  lsmod

ip_tables              28672  0
x_tables               40960  1 ip_tables

it did not startup faster, takes some time until the peppermint logo with starting up is appearing on the screen.

do i need firewall?  always did with windows, thought it could not hurt using it now ;-)
