Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

I did synaptic updates last night and noticed new kernel.

What is the new kernel for? For the RC?

Uptime >5 days with the BIOS fix, so I took out the rcu_nocbs line in grub and rebooted. Still running this morning.

Verdict, the beta1 is still stable on the Ryzen hardware.

Re: Help with Disk Manager

What are the permissions for the files/folders or mount point?

When ever things don't make sense in linux, I suspect first something for permissions.

Are the files/folders/mount point owned by root or user?
Just something to check.

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Paul, caprea, and namida, THis Ryzen is rocking with this MX18 beta1 now. Over two days uptime, mostly idling (which causes the crash) still solid. I will leave the rcu_nocbs for now, but when the RC comes, I will ommit the grub line. So the key is a newer BIOS, for me 4024, that has a new option in...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Paul, So you have total >25 hours with the idle current typical setting with different kernels, and no rcu_nocbs. That is encouraging. I crashed with the antix kernel AND rcu_nocbs, so.... Last night I installed the latest BIOS (4024) and rebooted with the idle current set to typical (default was AU...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Then obviously I need the .4.

Why would there be a difference?

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Thanks anti, what is the advantage of running the 4.19.7 over the 4.19.4? More security patches? So far the antix kernel has remained up for >12 hours, encouraging, but too early to claim stability. I should be more confident by say Sunday night. Paul, the MX kernel, as you wrote does not support th...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Paul, How is that typical idle current stetting working? With or without the rcu_nocbs? I was able to use the MX Package installer to get the 4.19-antix kernel, which I have installed. All went smoothly, updated the grubs, and am posting from MX18 b1 with the 4.19.4-antix.1 kernel. I think the LTS s...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback-MXPI not installing kernel

See my post #204 in this MX18 beta1 thread. I am still fighting the Ryzen crash/reboot at idle problem. From caprea's comments, and Pauls trials, I am trying to install the 4.19-antix.1 kernel with the MX Package installer. But I get the errors in the #204 post, so I cannot try that kernel. 1. Any i...

MX18 Beta1 MXPI

I am trying to install the 4.19.4-antix.1-amd64-smp kernel with the MX Package installer. This may be useful as it was the 4.15 antix kernel that was stable. I think as caprea wrote, the antix kernels have another rcu parameter set so the rcu_nocbs=0-11 fix for Ryzen crashing. There may also be some...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Paul, I am using the antiX kernel...from an earlier post. That 4.15.5-antix is needed because it has some other parameters enabled that make the rcu-nocbs work. It should be available from the MXPI, though I have not looked lately. Rebooted, all is good with the 4.15.5-antix.1. (still stable with th...
