[SOLVED] Debian really buggy on my notebook

Postby ToCox » 2018-06-14 09:34

Hello everyone!

Sorry to bother you, but after days of research I personally have not found any help from Wiki, Guides or forums.

The problem is: my debian system is really buggy. For example, it crushes everytime I suspend the system on RAM. But other bug are possible, even in the middle of an activity, suchs as writing in LibreOffice or browsing on Internet. And when it happens, I can wait hours and the only solution is reboot the system.

I don't understand the problem: I've tried Gnome, KDE and xfce on the same machine and problems come out everytime the exact day I install an operating system.

My machine is a ASUS p253ouj-XO0103E, with an Intel core i7-6500u (2.5 ghz), 8gb of RAM, nvidia geforce gt 920m.
My operating system is Debian 9.4 stretch, installed via Network install (to be honest, even a full installation from cd didn't work).
I added the contrib and non-free part to the source-list because of my wireless board.

I'm thinking of a cpu's firmware problem, or something like that. Unfortunately I'm not such a computer expert to understand it all by my own.

Hope not to get something wrong (except my English) about forum's guidelines.

You have an Optimus system:
https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee#Bumblebee_Project
You will also need intel-microcode and firmware-misc-nonfree package, since that is Skylake processor.
Code: Select all
apt install firmware-misc-nonfree intel-microcode


Set up Bumblebee as explained in the wiki, install the firmware and post the progress.

Thank you very much for replaying.

Bumblebee installed and added my user.

I'm sorry, it's partly in Italian (and that also explains my bad English knowledge).
I believe the microcode is installed, even if I think I have to take information from here (viewtopic.php?t=72645) about the possible missing firmware.

System seems to go well right now, I'll test it out among these days. Thank you very much for your time and suggestions.
