Q: CRONTAB, When to set path variable

Marc HenningI have two bash scripts that both work when I run them. However when I try to run them in cron, one script(Scipt 2) works and the other(Script 1) does not. I have narrowed down the problem to setting the PATH variable for both the find & date commands used in the non working script(Script 1). ...

I can only boot Trusty on this laptop — anything later fails.
Very strange... 🤔
8:36 PM
That is strange.
If I disable splash and quiet, I get a kernel panic but most of it is cut off.
I wish the kernel panic display had a pager. :P
Clearly some of the software doesn't like the old hardware, but that's beside the point.
9:19 PM
Oh it's not old hardware.
It's a brand new Ryzen-based laptop.
I'm thinking the hardware is newer than the software. :P
But I did manage to get the 19.10 mini-CD to boot.
So I think I'll try downloading the 19.10 desktop ISO now.
usually with new hardware you need new software, not the other way around o_O
I migrated to Manjaro, so Hello, Goodbye
@Seth But then... why does Trusty boot on it, but not Xenial or anything later until 19.10? Lol.
@NathanOsman Linux fab-manjaro 5.3.15-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Dec 5 11:01:29 UTC 2019 x86_64 GNU/Linux Kernel 5.3: no issues with hardware any more...
@NathanOsman that was the point I was making. it's a strange problem
9:25 PM
@Fabby I think 19.10 is using a 5.3 kernel as well.
@Seth Nathan is one-of-a-kind...
@Seth At, gotcha. This is very curious. :P
I'm flabbergasted too...
I did find an email in the LKML that refers to my issue...
It's recent enough that it is likely related.
Wow! Weird indeed.
OK, I'm off...

Q: Any known install iso images using MBR partition and BIOS only installer?

jsr___I have a legacy BIOS motherboard which has broken USB-HDD boot capability. The manufacturer has stopped supporting it a long time ago although I subsequently obtained a slightly newer BIOS image and flashed it - no change. It's a Foxconn G31MV. There is no CD drive and only a pre- SSL/TLS bug ...
