  1. [ubuntu_mate] Will System76 pre-install Ubuntu-MATE?

    If one were to buy a new System76 Thelio Desktop workstation (or any one of the units from its computer line), can it ship with Ubuntu-MATE as its pre-installed OS, if the buyer were to request...
  2. [ubuntu_mate] Re: 20.04 install will not shut down: "GPU lockup - switching to software fbcon"

    Just to note that I installed 20.04 on two separate external disks and both suffer from the same problem: upon shutdown they appear to close all running processes, but in both cases they leave the...

  4. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    So even if you're holding the power button in for six or seven seconds? I thought that was a safe way to shut down. I've seen the REISUB before, I'll try that.

    Meanwhile I want to figure out the...

  6. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    Interesting update here, some good news with this drive, for a change: I installed the 20.04 UEFI/GPT disk internally with no other disk connected except the storage (MBR) disk that doesn't boot.

  7. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    What would you do with an SSD that presents the same gdisk error message
    (
    Caution: invalid backup GPT header, but valid main header; regenerating
    backup header from main header.

    Warning!...
  8. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    The other SanDisk Ultra II that I have is internal and it doesn't boot. It's used for storage only. It's MBR. There are no problems with it.

    I do have a 2nd external SanDisk Ultra II that I've...
  9. [ubuntu_mate] Re: warning repeats after reboot & after the fix: "invalid backup GPT header"

    Still getting this from gdisk (and the similar warning from Gparted) every time I boot to my external SSD /dev/sdc that I've installed 20.04 on:

    GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 1.0.5 ...

  11. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    Finally I got a bootable UEFI/GPT Ubuntu-MATE 20.04 installed on a removable drive.

    After installing the iso onto a target SSD (carefully UN-checking the option to load third-party apps, because...
  12. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

  13. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    Here is an info report with my two internal drives unplugged.

    (Those internal drives are a BIOS 18.04 and a non-OS, non-booting SSD just for data storage. Those internal drives are what you saw...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

  15. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    Hold on, I'll do this from the installer.
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    In light of this knowledge I've just created /EFI/Boot/ folders in my external drive. (permissions -r--r--r-- on both). Then I copied into that /EFI/Boot/ folder these 3 files from my live-installer...
  17. Re: Having difficulties installing Ubuntu 20.04 alongside Windows 8.1 (GRUB)

    Remember that the only way you can install third-party software during the install process is by downloading it. You can't do that if you have no internet connectivity. It's downloaded...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    I've had partial limited success with my install.

    It's true I don't need to first boot rEFInd to boot the installer in EFI mode. My installer
    wasn't booting in EFI mode because in the F10 boot...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    The way I'm doing that work-around is by physically unplugging my non-target (internal) drives.

    But there are other mysteries preventing me from doing a UEFI-GPT install.

    Again, I am not...
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

  21. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    Thanks. See what I just now added to the end of my post directly above. I have the SSD (that I want to install to) formatted that way now, but I need to make sure the install will go correctly. ...
  22. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

    Correct. I'm using an 8 GB USB drive. I've been led to believe that using a smaller-capacity USB drive for this install might not provide enough space for creating a functioning live-boot drive, at...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Must a 20.04 live-boot installer be UEFI/GPT to create a UEFI/GPT SSD install?

  25. [ubuntu_mate] Re: Should I move to an HWE kernel from a General Availability kernel?

    If that's the case, shouldn't uname -a be telling me that I'm using 5.4.0.48.52~18.04.42 instead of 5.4.0-48.52~18.04.1 ??
