This is my very first topic, and sorry for the potential errors in my English.
By the time I found out the Ubuntu MATE (Gnome 2) is the best solution for me and my needs and my work is fastest in this “type of Linux”
Everything was in absolute harmony and in peace, until one day…
Someone destroys my world with bad drivers in the kernel module.
Reinstalling the whole system or other manual efforts didnt help.
Ok, initial kernel image works fine with the graphic card but after system updates the sad story repeats again and again.
So let me explain the situation in few more details:
- Older Samsung NC-10 (cute little netbook) 1Gb RAM
- Ubuntu MATE 16.04
- 32bit edition
- Intel 945 express on-board graphic card
- Initial kernel module in installation works with native screen resolution 1024X600
- All others kernels works only with 800X600 (from Advanced Mode during bootup-sequence)
- New kernels are unable to show 1024X600 (80% of screen is not shown), only 800X600
Then, for the testing purposes Linux Mint were installed just to check out the situation.
Almost the same story but somehow the latest kernel works fine on Linux Mint
and the same version of kernel dont works on the Ubuntu MATE (from the regular update)
But anyway I better prefer Ubuntu MATE… Ok I will use only initial kernel in 16.04 but wait…
There is NEW OFFER on the download section… 18.04 BETA 1
Last night I’ve download it and today was installed.
The version (in development at the moment) 18.04 works absolutely normal on my machine!?
Ok, I agree it is BETA 1, but no single issue with it…
All of my favourite programs also works fine.
I‘ve noticed the YouTube-DOWNLOADER missing in the Software Boutique and the KODI as well.
All other things works perfectly, also for the purposes of the testing were downloaded every possible update after the installing the system (including the new kernel for the 18.04)
So, I was forced to leave my beloved 16.04 because of graphic issues after updates of kernel module
but on the other hand 18.04 BETA works like STABLE and the graphic are normal again
Once again I have the normal operating system
And I dont know what goes wrong with 16.04 after changing initial kernel with regular updates?
It is just onboard Intel 945 express graphic card…
