I'm not an expert, but I have had several Thinkpads, the one closest to yours' being the X201 and T410. So I'm interested in your issue. If, as it looks like, you have the GMA X3100 video driver, it is known to have issues with a kernel newer than 4.18: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linu...

If you do a new install, here is a list of spins with the MATE spin: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=100&t=48617&p=486469&hilit=mx+mate+spin#p486469 I would not enable Debian backports unless you have a very good reason to do so. I've broken installs that way even though it should be 'safe...

Perhaps a work-around might be to include 'Newbie' in the title of any query? I've been here a while, but still consider myself at the earliest stages of learning, so would be more inclined to look at a query that I might be able to answer, in a way that someone at my level might understand.

I do use separate passwords for root and user on my server. There are instances where that is a good idea.
They are very good in that respect; an unexpected use of them is in industrial applications, and they have proved themselves up to the task. One of mine has been on 24/7 for about two years, another for three years. The first is in the open, sat on top of an SSD, the second is in an enclosure just ...
@KBD, re. their reliability - If I'm using one as a server, then I will have a complete 2nd system laying about. The price point is so low, that I consider this an affordable option. I'd also have a copy of my server system backed up (likely in multiple places, & at least one spare microSD card & p...
@KBD, I was initially attracted by the low electricity usage. I think they "can" be a good NAS controller solution. Though I've found the 3B+ to be underpowered for my needs, it looks like the 4 really should be ideal. Beyond that, they are something that is cheap enough to buy, that runs on Linux ...
