• Pop!_Planet is still very much under development. Data for the wiki is being sourced from the Arch Linux and Ubuntu wikis, along with a bunch of completely unique content specific to Pop!_OS, and sourcing, converting and updating that content takes time; please be patient.

  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

I used the mainline kernel app and installed the latest version. But somehow the computer is now freezing. Is there a way to return to my old kernel. I am trying to delete the new kernel but it doesn't let me do it.

The mainline installer is a handy tool and is great for upgrading the kernel. However, we've noticed that it is difficult to downgrade with it. I don't know why. Maybe it's a bug, or it doesn't like Pop (systemd boot / kernelstub). Pop uses the latest stable kernel, and that should be sufficient for most machines in most circumstances. I think anyone in the position where they have to go back and forth should learn the correct way of working with kernels in Pop. Here is a guide that you can follow and learn from.

Did you install Pop as legacy with GRUB? If your system is capable of using UEFI, you should do that for Pop. What is the output of the following?

[ -d /sys/firmware/efi ] && echo "Installed in UEFI mode" || echo "Installed in Legacy mode"
