As much as I love Linux, I can’t help but admit that I’ve had a fair share of issues throughout my years (with the latest one being sound related, something I’ve never worked with before ). Many of which I’ve been able to fix, others not. This leads me to want to ask:
When you have a bug that you’re unable to fix, what do you do? Swap systems? Reinstall? Ignore it? Look for other alternatives? And why do you choose to go that way?
The fastest way is to ask for help here on the forum.
Reinstalling does not reveal the real problem, but may just hide it, so it is not really a solution.
I can’t say I have had an issue I was unable to fix. I come to places just like this to employ the help of others who are always willing to help when I provide all the necessary information. That being said I have had things I have had to uninstall or wait for a fix however its very rare.
As far as looking elsewhere I’m to old to distro hop anymore did that before leaving Windows was cool. I enjoy what I use and if something doesn’t work its generally not long before its fixed either by community help or the developers.
I simply ask in the forum !
