Exclamation kernel crash and systemd vulnerability
Posted by: deck_luck - 09-11-2019, 06:09 PM - Forum: Ubuntu - No Replies

USN-4115-2: Linux kernel regression

USN 4115-1 fixed vulnerabilities in the Linux 4.15 kernel for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Unfortunately, as part of the update, a regression was introduced that caused a kernel crash when handling fragmented packets in some situations. This update addresses the issue.


USN-4120-2: systemd regression

USN-4120-1 fixed a vulnerability in systemd. The update included a recent SRU from the updates pocket that introduced networking problems for some users. This update fixes the problem. We apologize for the inconvenience. Original advisory details: It was discovered that the systemd-resolved D-Bus interface did not enforce appropriate access…

  Repost - Screensaver / Blanking after -TINA - install?
Posted by: dai-3 - 09-11-2019, 01:26 PM - Forum: Mint - No Replies

I thought that the issue had resolved itself but it seems to continue on and off, that the screensaver is not showing, only a fade to blank screen after I installed the update for Tina 19.2 from Tara 19.0.

Any help appreciated.  I connected to the internet yesterday and it seemed to resolve, but today it is faulty again?

Hopefully solved the issue.

Rolled back timeshift snapshot, turned off all extra startup actions (redshift/printer/screensaver/etc), screen saver was off anyway in control panel, turned off power management, installed all updates, created snapshot, reboot, install TINA, reboot, install TINA updates, reboot, activate all startups and control panel settings, test the screensaver OFFLINE, and the blank screen after, then online, and the 10 minute interuption of video play etc.

Seems fine, in case anyone else has this issue. Will update this if it fails again...

  Stop calling it "Gha-nome!"
Posted by: EzeeLinux - 09-09-2019, 01:43 PM - Forum: EzeeLinux Community Commons - Replies (16)

think it is time that we band together and start a fervent campaign to boycott all YouTubers who consistently refer to the GNOME desktop as "Gha-nome." This foolishness must be stopped NOW! "Gnome" is an English word that refers to a small mythical garden fairy... We do NOT pronounce the G as it is silent. The practice of pronouncing the G, no matter how noble your intentions, makes all of Linux look like a a clown show. Next thing you know, people are gonna start calling KDE "Ka-Dee." Stop the insanity.

I am having great difficulties finding a contemporary guide that actually works, even slightest unclarity with my noobish skills I get stuck.

See, I have mint installed and sadly and painfully i have to dual boot, i have to install windows because i need that worthless windows store for the age of empires, i bought a cd key.

so, it seems i have to first decrypt using a live cd, then resize and finally encrypt again, THEN i can install windows 10 on the unallocated free space and after that, i assume i can choose OS and if mint, then option to enter password and continue booting, is this correct?

  Is there a simple way to update Bios?
Posted by: Cymri - 09-09-2019, 04:09 AM - Forum: Linux Tips & Tricks - Replies (5)

I bought a pair of refurbed Dell Optiplexs (a 990 and 7020) but blew away Windows before I realized I should have updated the bios. Both are running Mint 19.2 with Legacy boot and Secure boot turned off. Can I turn UEFI on and attempt to update the bios, then return to Legacy boot? If it's going to really complicate things, I'll just leave the old bios in place.

  Flatpak updates on startup...do, or do not?
Posted by: Steve - 09-07-2019, 11:53 PM - Forum: Mint - Replies (6)

Hi Mint fiends,

I noticed that on startup, my system has an application that runs to update flatpaks.  I don't even remember allowing this to happen.  I noticed the activity one day when viewing htop.  Looking at my startup settings, I indeed found such an item turned on.

Is this safe and I should leave it on, or should I turn such auto updating off?

Thank you,

  Voices From The Past

Okay this is totally off topic from computers but is a reach out from technology of yesterday.

It is a Youtube video about humans beginning to record audio.  It even has samples from the 1850's to 1890's.  It goes back in time getting earlier as the video goes on.  Some of the recordings were originally performed on paper but with modern techniques we can now hear voices of yesteryear.

I think it is pretty incredible.  If you are interested the video link is below.

Music Ubuntu Studio to Xubuntu without losing anything
Posted by: danbrown1961 - 09-06-2019, 04:00 PM - Forum: Ubuntu - Replies (1)

Hi Guys

I finally got my Roland SC-8850 working in Ubuntu Studio and Reaper as my DAW to entertain myself while I try and learn Linux.
After watching Chris's latest YouTube vid about Light installs and debloating, could I convert my Ubuntu Studio into Xbuntu? I believe
they both use XFCE, or do I need to start from Scratch again?

I have an HP Mini (Celeron) with an SSD and 8Gb RAM lying around and was amazed that the Midi Timing didn't even Glitch while multitasking
in Ubuntu Studio. Every Windows Hiccups and Farts if you try do background tasks while running timing critical apps on my i7. I was impressed.
Maybe the other alternative is just to debloat Ubuntu Studio? My Installs are a mess as I am learning and the apps are loaded in Downloads
and the desktop.

mint 19.2

time lapses correctly and alarms correctly but
vertical bar that should change color and shrink as time lapses does neither

The same version(1.6.0-1build1) works fine in Ubuntu
