Linux Mint 19.2 is released 15 July 2019

somehow, I missed the release notice,
I just decided tonight to go read Clem's Blog and see if anything is new.

and there it was, so, I downloaded 19.2 Cinnamon ISO and will be trying to get it to install on my newest ASUS TUF Gaming laptop.

I hope that it contains updated Video Drivers so that I can put it on that laptop.

from what I saw of 19.1 it is not as user friendly as 18.3

but, to each their own.

Thanks for reminder , I read blog long time ago and already forgot about what the new update covers.

You know, windows didn't get that bad over night! It took fifteen years of careful development!

it stays 'Beta' until release #3 which will be 19.3

it is that way for every new version.
X.2 is always better than the initial release.

they do this because it is impossible for a small team to thoroughly check out every conceivable instance where something could go wrong.

so it is released "as Beta" so that users will be informed that when something goes awry, to please post of the problem so it can be resolved.

when all seems to be doing well, they release X.3 and then all updates are related to Security Issues. all releases are guaranteed lifetime of 5 years.

Sad to say, that 19.2 does not have the graphics drivers for my ASUS TUF laptop.
the install craps out immediately...

prints out two lines of errors and then it just stops dead.... no kybd response at all.
have to use the BIOS timeout to kill the PC.

this is very sad... I am going to try LMDE3 and see if that works, that is Debian, not Mint but still from Clem and his Mint team.

You may have to wait for 19.3 Cinnamon. I know you don't like the Xfce version but have you given it a try? For some reason the lower versions work better on some laptops.

it is going to have the same Kernel, so the graphics drivers will most likely be the same.


P10 won't install either, giving the same errrors as Mint.

You must have fought with that laptop well into the morning.

yes, I fussed with it way late into the wee hours,
the BIOS has the OEM SSD totally locked out of view from any foreign OS.

when the Linux install is running, it can't even see the primary SSD, only the 2nd SSD that I installed in the optional HDD tray.

I have never seen that before.
