  1. Re: Ryzen 5000 CPUs and Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Installer on Ubuntu Desktop 20.04 LTS?

    My personal choice in that situation (if the 5.8 kernel really is problematic for some reason) would be to use mainline on 20.04, then switch to HWE-edge when it gets the 21.04 kernel, then switch to...

  4. Re: FAT32 file system install with Ubuntu 20.04

    You are mistaken. FAT doesn't have the features that are required (notably, permissions) to be used for something functional like / or /home, but it can be read from and written to just fine.

  5. [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 20.04 after recent updates on startup get: System Program Problem Detected

    Well, that depends. And seeing if deleting the crash reports helps will be indicative.

    The mechanism is that when something crashes, it dumps the crash report. Then, some time later, the contents...
  6. Re: SUGGESTION to make it possible on all ubuntu to select install location

    Earlier than that. Most of it came from Unix - that's why we have a Unix System Resources (/usr) directory. Some things have been added or moved around since to serve Linux' requirements.

    There is...

    [ubuntu] Re: Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS no Welcome screen

    Technically you could log in again (I think the username is "ubuntu" and the password is blank) but then you'd experience exactly the same symptom.

    So from your description, your graphical session...

    That also suggests that it's a hardware issue. You've shown that with the same software and different hardware, the problem goes away.

    Re: steam install

    I'm not sure where you're reading the instructions from, but you're putting in a $ that you don't need.

    You can see from your prompt that it's got a $ at the end, signifying that you're a normal...
  13. [SOLVED] Re: PC no longer detecting headphones in/out?

    When you plug something in, it pushes in a pin, which triggers a signal from the hardware. When correctly configured, ALSA (the part of the sound stack that deals with the hardware) can use this...
