My computer has two operating systems, Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04. Today, when I tried to get into Ubuntu (I already laid it aside for about one week), the whole screen showed pure purple for at least 10 minutes, so I forced the computer to shutdown.

  • I partition my disk manually when installing Ubuntu: '/' primary partition Ext4 30720MB, '/boot' primary partition Ext4 1024MB,'/home' logical partition Ext4 51200MB,'/tmp' logical partition Ext4 10240MB,'/usr' logical partition Ext4 102400MB,'/var' logical partition Ext4 10240MB,swap logical partition 10240MB – OilLight Sep 4 at 10:52
