ubuntu595xubuntu 16.10 system completely freezes when i leave it running overnight - i have to do a hard reboot; any suggestions?01:24
basedmarsHey so I've decided to google a bit about it. How about this solution on http://askubuntu.com/a/796484 ubuntu59501:28
basedmarsI use ubuntu 16.04 btw. Never have freezes before01:29
ubuntu595i switched from LTS bc of an issue with file manager... when i'd copy a folder with the same name it'd make a new folder (2), not a prompt to merge01:30
ubuntu595and i don't think it's a memory issue though the terminal says somethign wonky atm...01:30
ubuntu595i have 16gb... it reads 15gb, which i understand, but it says used 2.9gb but only 262M is free with a 12g buff/cach and 12gb available01:31
ubuntu595no swap, bc i don't think swap is necessary with my usage01:31
basedmarsFrom what I know, the disk will start to swap on long uptime.01:39
ubuntu595so should i turn on swap anyway?01:40
basedmarsThis could be a full ram issue. So I googled about those and I found this http://askubuntu.com/a/4500901:40
basedmarsYeah I think so01:40
ubuntu595i checked ram usage from when my system froze on the system monitor01:41
ubuntu595they weren't higher than normal01:41
basedmarsThat solution basically saying that only swapping when the system desperately need swapping. And if they do, don't keep it in swap too much, more in memory01:41
ubuntu595mmm alright i'll give that a shot then01:42
ubuntu595not sure it'd work but i'm running out of ideas at this point01:42
ubuntu595thanks basedmars01:42
basedmarsYeah you're welcome. The first answer could help too by putting intel_idle.max_cstate=1 in grub. Also, update the kernel to the latest one.01:44
ubuntu595i think everything is updated as far as kernels go01:46
ubuntu595aight i'm gonna try some stuff out... might be back in a few days.01:48

dkesselnewbie, i guess the old netbook is an i386 machine, not 64 bit? chrome is no longer supported by google in i386 machines. your only option will be chromium.10:23

Lykai'm planning on installing xubuntu on a 2in1 netbook fresh. do i use 16.04.1 or 16.10?20:58
Lykafor example, does 16.10 have driver support that 16.04.1 doesn't have, does the LTS thing make 16.04.1 more desireable than 16.10?21:02
knomeit depends on the use case, but usually you'll want the LTS21:04
knomehardware support will be available for LTS's with HWE (hardware enablement), though most often it's not essential to have that21:04
knomeit you have a very new machine, then it might be more essential21:05
Lykaasus t100ha21:06
knomenope, that's not "very new"21:07
knomeyou can always use the live DVD to see if the hardware works as expected21:07
Lykai hope the repair shop knows what they are doing, i'd hate to have to do more than wipe the ssd...21:11
Lykait had a damaged charge port when it went in21:12
Lyka(and had been pre-wiped by me with the default win10)21:13

xubuntu13wHi everyone. I'm in need of help with my 16.10  installation. Everything works fine until I receive the error message "grub-efi-amd64-signed failed to install into /target/"22:37
xubuntu13wThen the installer fails and I have to reboot into the live session (which I'm currently using to seek help).22:37
xubuntu13wOne solution I found online was to modify the filename "grub-efi-amd64-signed_1.9~ubuntu12.04.4+1.99-21ubuntu3.10_amd.deb" by adding "64" at the end before .deb22:41
knomexubuntu13w, sounds weird, try asking #ubuntu as this is not a xubuntu-specific problem and there are more people there who can help22:41
xubuntu13whow can I join #ubuntu from this room?22:42
knome/join #ubuntu22:42
knomenp, hope you'll find an answer soon22:42
