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...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Paul, similar here...My MX18 also was crashed out to the log-in screen this morning. I have the rcu line added in grub, and I think the power settings are off, though I must re-check this tonight. So it made it a day and a half. I don't know if it is the new kernel, but my MX17 and 17.1 with 4.15 ke...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

rej

Just scroll backwards in this thread to post 80 where I reported the problem.
Then in posts 90 and 94 Adrian proposes the fix which he uploaded.

In the live session, use synaptic to upgrade the installer.
Then install as normal, that worked and the fix will surely be in the next beta.

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

rej We saw the same thing when trying to install grub, see my first comments in this thread. (post 80) Jerry spotted that as well. Grub did not want to install to external USB HD. "Ok to install Grub bootloader at ?" - then failed. Just a question mark - no sda#. Same on a partition on internal HD A...
