Re: Ubuntu Mate Updates-Kills Firefox

Christian, Thanks for the FYI! I'm going to go ahead with Tumbleweed on R7 250X GPU. My lowest bootable (no issue) Kernel rev. is 4.6.6, of course, highest I've tested and use is 4.6 Final with the R7 250X. I'll test 4.7 Alpha and use it if no issues. As I've reported, 4.0.7 will boot, but, I have t...

Re: Ubuntu Mate Updates-Kills Firefox

Thanks Christian. Ironically, the graphics environment shows an attempt to look better as well. I have read over your tutorial for installing OpenSuSe. I was running OpenSuSe on my old PC a few years ago - 11.1 x86 to be exact. I found it to be one of the best Linux Distro's. X1000 requires a little...

Re: Kernel 4.6

speedtest.png glxgears2.png Hi Christian, 4.6 Final. Ubuntu 16.04 (Julian's SI image upgraded) Radeon HD R7 250X. Downloaded on my Mac Mini to my USB first. 4.6 Final booted fine but with USB 1-10 error with patience it continued to boot to login screen. Had to wait for keyboard and mouse to activa...

Re: MATE doesn't ask for password

I didn't think I had set up an ADMIN account. I have no "System Settings." I do have System>Administration>Users and Groups. Presumably this is what you meant. There I was able to change "bart" to Administrator, but I am not sure that is what I should do. In any event, it doesn't seem to have the e...

Re: MATE doesn't ask for password

... Don't forget after Mate install, create your ADMIN user account with your name and password then you can delete the AMIGAONE user account! Hope this helps. As you probably know, John, I have done what you suggest in the deleted part of this quote, and have a largely working ubuntu MATE16.04 LST...

R7 250X and Kernels 4.0.7 thru 4.1.20

Hi Christian, Performing a 12.04 install with DVD and Kernel 4.0.7 led me to a riddle. I have tested this and determined repeatability. Know that this , at the least, gets Ubuntu 12.04 DVD loaded for an install. My finding using 4.0.7 on CF Card: 1st CFE> ramdisk -addr=0x24000000 -fs-iso atapi0.1:ca...

Re: (X)(L)ubuntu (MATE) 16.04 LTS

In my point of view it is not a good idea to upgrade to 16.10 without solving those problems. Thanks. That was my guess, but I secretly hoped maybe those autoremove and cleanup commands might clear the problem areas. It's starting to look like I may have to be satisfied with 12.04, but I really lik...

Re: Kernel 4.6

Good to hear John :-) The glxgears FPS report look a little low compared to earlier versions. I presume 3D game like SuperTuxkart, Neverputt etc are working OK? TrevorD Hi Trevor! I had a couple of questions for Christian after testing the booting of Kernels 4.6 rc6 and rc7. I have noticed the lowe...
