In your possible relevant issues, you mentioned: The integrated Intel graphics show up as Intel Bay Trail (which I know has had some problems with Linux in the past) Here's my personal experience. I have had a similar issue. It was an NVidia GT820M Card. I always had issue using the proprietary drivers from Nvidia What fixed it for me was using ...

See https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109051 The following eliminated the problem for me. Edit /etc/default/grub. Change the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="intel_idle.max_cstate=1 quiet splash" then do sudo update-grub and reboot.

You can not create hard links to directories in linux. I have heard that OSX allows this for time machine to use, but not linux. The closest you can do is cp -l, which will create a new tree of directories mirroring the original, but hard link all of the regular files.

I had the same problem an I ended up disabling tlp in /etc/default/tlp. changing TLP_ENABLE=1 to TLP_ENABLE=0. It looks like power management causes the flickering. this solution may affect your battery life.

You can load the module automatically in this in two way: First Way: Edit /etc/modules file and add the name of the module to load at boot. To do so open the file with superuser permission: sudo nano /etc/modules and append a new line containing dvb-usb-rtl28xxu. To save and close the file press ctrl+x and then type y. You can read more details here. ...

I was experiencing the same problem on an ASUS N56JN (also Intel chipset). This worked for me: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/debian-ubuntu-building-installing-a-custom-linux-kernel/ It basically explains how update the kernel to the latest version, goes step by step on how to download, compile and install the latest version of the Linux kernel (4.5).

There is one interesting fact about a new point release. We can divide it into 2 parts: Software stack. Hardware Enablement (HWE) Stack, the kernel part. Let's take 14.04.1 Ubuntu Trusty (with 3.13 series kernel) for example. When running upgrade with sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade: Your software stack will be upgraded to the latest ...

Ok .. Decided to give it Grub Customizer a try on a VM box so I didn't screw anything up. I was able to change the default kernel without any issues. Here is how I did it. In the General settings tab I clicked the pulldown for predefined. It listed all the kernels available. I chose the 3.19.0-58-generic and clicked save ... I rebooted into that kernel. ...

Here is a brief answer. Mainline kernels are just vanilla kernels from kernel.org packed as deb. Ubuntu kernels are specially maintained by Canonical Kernel Team. The team backports bug fixes and support of some new hardware from the latest mainline kernels, and also does other improvements. Canonical and the community supports only the Ubuntu kernels. ...

This patch has been applied to Ubuntu kernels a year ago. If you are using a supported Ubuntu kernel, you do not need to apply it again.

You can disable Secure Boot (UEFI) in the BIOS with the following steps: Reboot your machine and enter the BIOS Menu (In my case pressing F2) Search for Secure Boot and change to Legacy In an ASUS motherboard: Go to the Advanced Mode (F7) Go in the Secure Boot option under the Boot section Change "Windows UEFI mode" with "Other OS" Save and restart to ...

Restart your computer, when your BIOS is through quickly press shift (might need a few tries to get the timing right) to open the GRUB menu. There choose other options for ubuntu and select to boot with the older kernel, then you safely can uninstall everything what belongs to the newer kernel and be done with it: sudo apt-get remove linux-headers-4.4.8* ...

It seems I have solved it. 16.04 was installed over a disk containing an earlier version and for some reason it a) did not remove earlier kernels, and b) did not install the 16.04 4.4 kernel. solution - I deleted all earlier kernels from /boot and all directories referring to modules for earlier kernels, and reinstalled. That got rid of the problem.

Im not familiar with that program but if I want my computer to boot to a different kernel I just manually edit the grub file located at: /etc/default/grub Look for GRUB_DEFAULT=0 (or whatever your default is set too) Change that line to the kernel you want loaded ... looking at your list there it looks like 0 would be the standard 4.4.8 and 3 would be ...

Not a solution - another question - I have done a fresh install on 16.04 instead of an upgrade and have found the vmware-view-client is no longer in the repositories - I have installed it from the vmware website but cannot create a unity launcher that works - I can only get it to launch from a terminal by typing vmware-view - the launcher just hangs even ...

Try installing newer kernels. In some cases, it fixes the problem of freezing that caused by bad high precision timer code. This is binary for Linux 4.5.2: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v4.5.2-wily/ Download appropriate 3 .deb binary packages, install them, and reboot to the new kernel. I hope this will fix your problm. By the way, Ubuntu ...

I have got the same problem when attempting to install a clean version without updating from the previous 15.10. It is rather confusing when you cannot boot and you have no other OS on your computer. My partitions are on a SSD : sda1 /boot, sda2 /, sda4 /home, sda5 swap. Other disks are reserved for data I solved the problem by deleting my sda1 partition and ...

Updates should still work normally once a newer version of the kernel is available from any of your defined software sources. If you are interested you can see which version apt considers newer with this command: dpkg --compare-versions [version1] gt [version2] The exit status will be 0 if apt considers version1 newer or 1 otherwise.

On my system I did the following to make it work: Run mokutil: sudo mokutil --disable-validation Then mokutil asked me to set a password for the MOK Manager. After rebooting the PC the BIOS showed a dialog to configure the MOK Manager. I disabled SecureBoot from this dialog, it asked for several characters from the password (ie. enter character (5), ...

Update: Note that while some indicate that VMWare version 12.1.1-3770994 fixes the issue - excellent for you! - unfortunately, this is not the case for me. I am running 12.1.1-3770994 and still having the problem as per my answer. I suspect this is a Secure Boot issue. 16.04 now enforces module signatures and the the VMWare modules built by the ...

I had the same problem. A 32 bit install of xubuntu via a USB stick prepared with UNetbootin, was fine, but when I tried a 64bit install on the same laptop, after an apparently straightforward and successful install process, I was left with a black screen on attempting reboot.

Since Ubuntu kernel 4.4.0-20 the EFI_SECURE_BOOT_SIG_ENFORCE kernel config has been enabled. That prevents from loading unsigned third party modules if UEFI Secure Boot is enabled. Since Ubuntu kernel build 4.4.0-21.37 this can be fixed by running sudo apt install mokutil sudo mokutil --disable-validation

You can disable the validation check by sudo apt install mokutil sudo sudo mokutil --disable-validation After that DKMS packages should install.

Thank you for reminding me to finish this ! Indeed, after looking at the lines, I noticed that: slot:0 was the problem. Assuming it was bad memory, I took it out (Slots are allocated by your motherboard, or at least in mine, slot zero was slot 1 of the mother board) Thus I took it out, tested for 48 hours, and no errors appeared.

I haven't had any issues with WiFi on a T530 and a new T560 (16.04) in the past. Be sure to get the Intel WiFi option, the modules should be the same in the 14 inch models. From the T560: 04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 (rev 3a)

Like Ubuntu, the Linux kernel also has long-term support versions. So, for an Ubuntu LTS release (like 16.04), picking the latest long-term kernel version makes sense. This way, unlike with a normal stable release, Canonical can rely on the kernel maintainers to backport fixes for a long time. 4.4 will be supported till February 2018. Canonical did pick a ...

Still tracking this issue? It seems like you have a bad memory module, the machine pauses just waiting for the hardware to correct this error by itself. You may need to try to remove or replace the memory at your first CPU, second channel and first slot.

Alright so after a bit of testing I'm pretty sure this is a secure boot issue. As in if it's enabled then this is thrown: WARNING: The vboxdrv kernel module is not loaded. Either there is no module available for the current kernel (4.4.0-21-generic) or it failed to load. Please recompile the kernel module and install it by sudo ...

I had the same problem as you, I also thought I had completely removed the kernel by deleting all its entries in /boot and directory in /lib/modules & updating GRUB, but i found the one directory that is used by update-initramfs to keep track of the kernels: /var/lib/initramfs-tools

Yes, you have to replace all the missing files of this folder: https://github.com/benjarobin/MT7630E with this one https://github.com/neurobin/MT7630E/tree/e7130a42f8198cbf503a5a307175073c078bf340 following the same procedure of the last one. with my ASUS N751JK on Ubuntu 14.04.4 kernel 4.2.0-35-generic work fine !!! thank you  Devin Hudson

It seems like your harddisk is using MBR partition table and your are trying to boot computer using UEFI. Go to BIOS and change BOOT OPTION to Legacy, and try again.

This page suggests that to fix the issue (a corrupt kernel), one would need to drop to Terminal and purge the old kernel (which is the solution I was expecting, anyway)... But seeing as I cannot even get to Terminal in Recovery Mode, it looks like my foolish mistake is going to cost me a clean install.

There isn't enough information to diagnose this so you should file a bug. I'm assuming when you mention 'freeze' the computer needs to be completely power cycled to use it again. With that it is most likely a kernel issue. The following link explains how to file a bug against the Ubuntu kernel: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/Bugs Another approach is to use ...
