Ive had PureOS install on an ssd for a couple of years, recently there hasnt been any updates and the software app doesnt display anything. The only thing I see is the top row of buttons. Do I need to reinstall PureOS?
Ive run the sudo apt upgrade/update from tilix but all thatdid was remove unused apps.
I mainly use browsers for my stuff. If chromium and firefix work thats all i really need. Will Crimson be updatable once a stable release is released or woupd i need to reinstall it again?
Also, has booting from NVMe drive been sorted yet or do I still need to use a Sata drive?
Err, its a corsair Force510 off the top of my head. Asrock Fatal1ty Z77 chipset with i7 3770k, 32gb ram. The UEFI has been updated to boot from pcie nvme drives. Im running ubuntu from it but I never use it.
Im currently using a Kingston A400 120gb ssd for PureOS, its a cheap ssd, chosen because I dont know if PureOS/Linux plays nice with SSDs.
I can’t speak for PureOS but I haven’t had a Linux computer booting from HDD for a decade or more. That is, every Linux computer that I have (and I don’t have any computers running anything except Linux) boots from SSD.
Are you trying to install a package using the GUI? I think the problem here is that Firefox is under some weird package name.
Regarding Linux & ssd’s; i meant stuff like TRIM, GARBAGE COLLECTION etc etc. If i install linux on my laptop I typically lose an hour of battery life compared to Windows. So will it shorten the life of an SSD, compated to Windows. I dont think it does.
I will try the terminal for firefox, it always came pre loaded on previous installs.
