Oh man, my main desktop has decided to stop loading the kernel for some reason. All I'm getting is a GrUB prompt.
I've been thinking about flipping back to Ubuntu Mate for a while now, I suppose this is the kick I needed...
And I'm done. As expected, everything was really straightforward in #UbuntuMATE - just need my files to sync now.
@kev Separate your /home partition next time
@TheFreePenguin @kev lmao xD
@TheFreePenguin @kev Do you have a best practice for this?
@pantos @kev resize your root part, add a new part, mount it at /mnt, cp -r /home/* /mnt, edit your fstab to mount the new part at /home, reboot
@TheFreePenguin @kev Thx! So far I have not thought about it so much, but sounds very reasonable!
@kev where do you store your files?
@pantos on my Synology - so everything is in the SynologyDrive folder.
@kev Do you sync your entire /home/? Or are you working in the synology sync folder only?
@pantos the latter.
@kev Mate is one of the most stable distros out there.
@adam99 it is. I ran for around 3 years with absolutely no issues.
