Well I´m new in linux and I´m pretty lost... My laptop is an asus with ryzen 5 and gpu RX560X, maybe is only a drivers issue, but i don't know how to get what i need. Thanks!
Here is my personal experience:
I installed mint tricia 32-bit (xfce, kernel 5.4.0-77) on my old (OLD!) Samsung NC10 about 6 weeks ago, and it was fine.
Yesterday I switched it on for the first time in 5 weeks, did an update, and then it would not shut down through the standard shutdown button from the menu. I did shut it eventually by keeping the off-button pressed for a few seconds. I started it again. With the menu button it did not shut down, again, and by pressing the Esc key I could see the messages scrolled on the screen --- something like the following:
After "Shutdown" there was a "kernel panic",
"not syncing: Attempted to kill init! /shutdown: error while loading shared libraries: libpcre.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file ..."
So I switched it off by holding the off-button, started it again, searched for the
.so library (
locate libpcre.so.3); I saw that there was one in
I just tried and copied it into a more standard path:
sudo cp /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libpcre.so.3 /usr/lib/
and then I tried to shut down through the menu button and it worked!
I tried once again, and it booted up fine and then shut down properly via the menu button. Hope this helps.
