A couple of weeks ago, I posted a message about not being able to find
out how to post a bug on launchpad and Ralph kindly pointed out the bit
I had missed. That bug was about Plasma not remembering configuration
changes (in this case Klipper). In the end i posted to both launchpad
and the KDE bugtracker, but with no meaningful responses to date.
I decided to do a clean installation of Kubuntu 22.10 to see if the bug
was there; it was. However, my system uses a separate drive to contain
/home (sdb), so I tried the whole thing again, ignoring my existing
/home and did a clean installation of Kubuntu 22.10 on sda. The bug was
I decided to regress the system to 22.04, since that had worked fine.
Unfortunately a bug relating to MTD devices prevented me from booting up
and using this despite a work-round that I found on the Internet. I had
not seen this prior to the upgrade to 22.10.
I then decided to do another clean installation of 22.10; this time all
on the same partition, instead of my usual setup of OS on sda and /home
on sdb. This installed OK, but the same bug was apparent.
That's when I made a big mistake. Unfortunately, somewhere along the
way, I managed to delete all the data on sdb, so I now need to
re-install again and grab the latest backup, (which is fortunately less
than a week old).
This problem with MTD doesn't seem to be confined to the one system. I
have now fallen back on my laptop which I rarely use these days, but is
also at 22.10. It shows the same problem.
So I know I can get my system restored with the really annoying Plasma
bug, which is not being addressed as yet. Ideally, I'd like to regress
to 22.04 if possible, but the feedback on the Internet is extremely
confusing about the MTD bug. At least one launchpad contributor says
that this error will not stop the system booting, but on this machine, I
never get past that message, which is repeated three times at the
beginning of the boot cycle.
Can anyone shed any light on this?
