Kernel Panic on Shutdown
#1
This has just recently started happening:

On one of the machines on which I run Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, I am getting a 'kernel panic' after I tell it to shut down, and this means I have to force a power off.

Some details about my PC
Cinnamon version 4.4.8
Kernel: 4.15.0.88
processor: Intel Celeron G1610 2.60GHzx2
Memory: 4G
Hard Drive: 1TB (2x500GB)


This is a machine I upgraded from Mint 19.2 some time ago, so may have some redundant data.
I also have all my personal data backed up to an external USB hard drive, using the 'bu' script that Joe supplies.


As this issue happens on shutdown, should I be concerned?
Should I try to trace whatever fault is causing the panic?
Is it recommended that I reinstall Mint?

Never mind. I've gone with the reinstall option.
My system is now working Smile

It's sometimes the quickest way to resolve a fault.
