The funny part about the removal of networking from the default package on , is that they did it for "security" reasons, without thinking that the MOST INSECURE way to transfer a to your is via the CLIPBOARD. Absolutely every running app or service can read the clipboard! And yet, that's the default way they expect users to do it now!

That maintainer didn't think it through at all.

moving away from .deb is a good idea on paper to get them less reliant on . It's just the fact of how bad has been as a package manager and no one seems to like it but they're still going full steam ahead.

Just bought an Arc 310, the lowest end Intel GPU. I've had an card before that but it's too much of a trouble with . Except the artifacts in 40 under with the official driver, it doesn't wake up from sleep after 2-3 sleep-wake up cycles. The driver is too slow for 2D/video (and buggy with 's official appimage), so I decided, that's it, time to move on from nVidia.

Also decided to try out as my main distro to replace Fedora.

Do you experience unexplained crashes or freeze-ups on your Ubuntu (or other) Linux based home theater PC or gaming system? Here is a possible fix!

After installing Ubuntu 22.04, Kodi on a home theater PC would frequently freeze. This issue, applicable to various Linux distros, can be resolved by increasing the vm.max_map_count value in sysctl.conf. This setting controls the maximum number of memory map areas a process may have, crucial for applications like Kodi that use numerous memory-mapped files.

Jerry , (edited ) avatar

The first post of this new account on this instance may have resolved a problem I've been trying to figure out for over 2 years! Fingers crossed!

While I'm not using Kodi, I have been having these random crashes.

My sysctl.conf didn't have a value for vm.max_map_count, but when I ran "sudo cat /proc/sys/vm/max_map_count" I saw it was set to the default of 65,530.

I followed the instructions in the post.

Now I wait and see with great hope!

There apparently is a local privilege escalation in kernel module . You may want to stop the module from loading for now:

echo -e "blacklist n_gsm\ninstall n_gsm /bin/false" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/0-stop_n_gsm.conf
