4.15 will not boot, but 4.14 does perfectly? [solved]

Hello again,  Smile

I'm now on LM 18.3 with a Intel Xeon X5650. I decided to give Xanmod 4.15 a try but the Linux Mint boot screen just stays busy forever it seems, and I tried several times but its just stuck. So, I decided to try 4.14.15 instead and it boots perfectly, thanks.

Is this because Linux Mint 18.3 only allows you to boot on LTS kernels? What should I do to try 4.15? Or should I purge 4.15 and stick with 4.14 LTS for now? If I should stick to 4.14, how can I purge 4.15 please?

Thank you greatly for any advice, or purge help. Thanks

Best Regards

Hello @SkOrPn,
about installation I also found issues at Virtualbox Guest Additions due to some config file missing.
I don't know if it's related also with your issue.

About your question to purge the 4.15 kernel:
$  sudo dpkg -l linux* | grep ^ii | awk '{ print $2 }'
# after this command you should seek the "numbers" at the kernels and then
$ sudo apt-get --purge remove  XXXXXXXX YYYYYYY
# where XXXXXX is the linux-image file(s) of the kernel to be deleted
# where YYYYYY is the linux-header file(s) of the kernel to be deleted
$ sudo apt-get -s autoremove

The easiest way imho is to install synaptic and then seek the kernels and delete them. 
Be careful while doing these operations, leave at least two kernels for security.
Important: the important thing is the numeration inside the kernel names.

PS. You can stuck for a while on 4.14 branch, it works also good.

Thank you for the information. Yeah I guess I will purge 4.15 and wait a bit longer. I will be on a Ryzen 5 2400G (Vega APU) here soon and will try 4.15 series then.

Try with rqshare=none

Also 'echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/yield_type' should be tried. Useful comments for Ryzen here:
