I have a new Lenovo ThinkPad T590 and installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. It works quite good, but I also experience system crashes. Maybe the hardware is too new.

Here's the syslog of one crash
enter image description here

Furthermore there are cases where a keyboard key get stuck (i.e. iiiiiiii). If that happens the only solution is a reboot.

Futher investigations of the syslog show lots of wifi-errors. I.e.:

Do you have any hints, how I could solve my issues? Do you think an upgrade to Ubuntu 19.04 could be a solution? Thanks

You should install and run the LTS hardware enablement stack when using Ubuntu LTS on a desktop/laptop system.

In this case, the issue with Intel wireless is a bug in the older kernel shipped with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, and is fixed in later kernels.

Install the HWE kernel (and Xorg) and reboot into it.

sudo apt-get install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-18.04 xserver-xorg-hwe-18.04  
  • Thanks, I installed the HWE kernel. I will test it and report back, if that solves my issues. If so, you saved my day!! :) – wuarmin Jul 2 at 6:29
  • Now my Ubuntu 18.04 works like a charm. Thanks – wuarmin Jul 4 at 5:47
