MiniMax Kaputt Again?

Oh my fuk! Yesterday night, me sleeping on the sofa, hubby doing stuffz on my computer. Bizniz as usual. And also as usual hubby does the latest update before he quits and I can tuck him in. So far nothing special. Bizniz as usual, like I said.

But then when I return from the bedroom and switch on the PC it refuses to boot properly. First he pretends to strat up as normal … and then stops on a black screen with some command lines showing. Hey, y’all know how it is, right? Needless to say I try it and try it again … and again, and again and again and then I join hubby in bed and promise Imma gonna try it again in the morning.

So this morning when I wake up I don’t even go to the gym but directly to work on MiniMax. To no avail. But as I find out it’s not Linux to blame, as GagaMore is on the same EndeavourOS distro and had the same update. And I’m typing this post on GagaMore, do I?

But in a kinda last ditch effort I decide to install the lastest and greatest Manjaro 21.0 on MiniMax, see if that’ll help:

Like totally confuzzled. 😮

… it doesn’t. Of course not. It’s even worse now. Manjo seems to be installed but the graphics is totally fubared. 😦 But hubby doesn’t call me Sweet Summer Child for no reason, as I will now try to install the good old trusty Minty Goodness. That system is said to install everywhere, no matter the circumstanes. Wish me luck.

Oh, btw, the battery charger of my good Canon camera is acting up. Of course, I mean why wouldn’t it? Orca’s down already, so let’s kick her in the pussy. Coz it’s fun! 😦 So this last photo was done with my old Nikon and, although I had her on a tripod, isn’t even half as sharp as my Canon pics usually are. :/ Next one will hopefully be from my Canon again when – and if – the battery is fully charged.

… but now I’ve gotta see the mechanic. Laterz …

  1. Are you sure you plugged every cable properly into your new power supply? Some of those connectors sit tighter than a camel’s arse in a sand storm.

    • Yes, sure I’m sure. I always hammer my males into my females to make sure it’s a tight fit. And while I was typing this for the first time, my computer froze in … right in the middle of the initial update. 😮 But it looks as if it went thru. I’m on Manjaro now. It’s rather very nice and I guess Imma stay a while. Pheew. Last thing I need now is a brick.
      And now to install nvidia 460 …

        • What? Oh noes! Pleeeze noooooo…!!! 😮 My GTX770 was Nvidia’s 2nd best and rather expensive. It can’t be kaputt now, it just can’t. And in Manjaro it works. Same as my screen, which is bright and shiny. 🙂

    • I did that quite often in the last couple days, since I got the second stick. And I made extra sure that both sides clicked with a satisfying clack when I put them back into their slots. BTW, how’s your Manjaro project coming along, Neil? I just installed it today and am already finished moving in. Blogging and surfing like a boss. It’s all so nice and easy here, guess I’ll stick around for a while. 😉
