Hi Mechanic,

Thanks a lot for testing the kernels.

Which issues have you seen with the kernel 4.19 on Fienix?

Cheers,
Christian

Hi Christian,
On a fresh install the 4.19 works just fine. However, after doing a full upgrade when selecting the Mate Terminal it will pop the terminal window open and immediately it disappears. So pretty much it becomes unusable.

Hi Christian
I found a solution. It was kernel 4.19 that was the problem. Tried kernel 5.4 and got boot error. Tried 4.20 and booted fine and Mate terminal works.

Hi Peter,

Please post the boot error.

@All
I compiled the latest longterm kernel 4.19.85 today. Unfortunately the issue with the MATE Terminal still exists. I can't solve it because I don't see any error messages after the crash. I tried it with gdb but without any success.

Cheers,
Christian

The MATE Terminal also crashes with the longterm kernel 4.14.

I tried 4.19 on my fresh install, and the Mate Terminal works. However, this install did not get a full upgrade, only selected programs have been installed or upgraded. So where the problem lays is anybody's guess. Chalk it up to one of Doctor Strangelove's predictions.
