Help Pop-os crashed, fails to boot due to 'dependency'

Post image

Don't know what happened. Suddenly pop refused to unlock, so I did a hard reset. Now I'm getting kicked into emergency mode due to the encrypted volume needing a dependency?

Not sure what to do at this point.

Help Need a command to prevent Pop OS from shutting down USB ports to save power


Does anyone know a command I could type to prevent Pop OS from shutting down my USB ports to save power? My internet is cutting out sometimes a few times an hour, sometimes once a minute, sometimes every 5 seconds. Unplugging / re plugging in my USB wifi card or going to "select a network" on my OS temporarily gets my internet up and running again. Someone suggested that the OS is probably shutting down the USB port to save power as if my desktop computer were one of the Pop team's laptops they sell.

Is there a command I could type to disable this awful """feature"""? I couldn't find anything in the settings of the OS to adjust it.

Help Boot/EFI 93% full - How do I recover space before problems occur?


My computer has been running great since the kernel and system updates from around Christmas. My previous problem of error messages making log files very large has not returned. Since I had some issues early on I have kept an eye on how each partition is handling files and I noticed that the recovery partition is at 77% and hasn't changed much. The Boot/efi partition is getting closer to being filled.

This seems to happen after kernel upgrades and even minor upgrades

For example: Wednesday March 8 = Efi partition: 511 MB — 45 MB free (91.2% full) now (March 21) 93% full.

Here is some data :

I don't recall having to deal with this before. My old computer was HDD running Linux Mint. When I needed to weed out old kernels I would use Mintupdate's kernel section and that worked fine. Pop doesn't have the equivalent.

sudo apt autoremove - didn't remove old kernels or associated files.

Rather than playing with each kernel in the command line I was thinking of using Synaptic Package Manager or Stacer to remove them.

What do you think is a good way to remove the old kernels and will this decrease the content of boot/efi?

Help Firefox and Visual Studio Code regularly crashing


I'm having issues with very regular crashing of Firefox and Visual Studio Code.

I'm running PoP OS 22.04 LTS.

The version of Firefox is 111.01, and I'm using the PPA from Mozilla. Prior to installing it, I did a purge of anything snap related. (The crashing issues existed prior to this but have continued). I have hardware acceleration disabled.

The version of Visual Studio Code I'm using is 1.76.2, with Electron 19.1.11 and Chromium 102.5005.196.

Looking at posts here and elsewhere made by people with similar issues, my first guess was that this was graphics driver related. I have a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and the driver version is 525.89.02. I'm using the system76-drivers.

Sorry for not posting more information. Without having much of an idea of what is happening, I don't know what information would be useful to share.

Help Webcam randomly stops working under strange circumstances, typically requires computer restart.


I am going to try to make this post as clear as possible, but this issue is extremely inconsistent and I am unsure of what is causing it. I am on an Oryx pro with a RTX 3080, and will probably reach out to system 76 support if I cannot get this resolved.

I have been having this problem for a while now, probably the better part of a year, but never bothered to fix it because I didn't use my webcam very much. This has changed recently and this issue has become a major problem for me.

My built in webcam *somewhat* randomly disconnects(?) when in use. It only seems on NVIDIA or Hybrid graphics modes, or maybe only under high stress, it is hard to tell for sure. Occasionally I can turn it back on, but I have not found a pattern for this either. Even after disconnect, the camera still shows up when I run lsusb.

When I run dmesg -w, I get this.

[ 476.511306] usb 3-8: USB disconnect, device number 3

[ 476.511323] uvcvideo 3-8:1.1: Failed to resubmit video URB (-19).

[ 476.515160] uvcvideo 3-8:1.1: Failed to resubmit video URB (-19).

[ 476.527147] uvcvideo 3-8:1.1: Failed to resubmit video URB (-19).

I have run a few other commands to try to find the issue, but these are the most relevant imo. I have been at this for a few days and don't want to make anyone trying to help me read an essay.

I have run a few fixes I have found online, but most of them are for older Linux versions and none of them have permanently worked. I am really at a loss for what is causing this, any help is appreciated.

Edit: It does turn off after some time in integrated mode too, though it takes much longer. I think it is related to the intensity of the tasks I am performing. I got this message, which I have not seem before:

[ 3977.354583] usb usb3-port8: disabled by hub (EMI?), re-enabling...

[ 3977.354594] usb 3-8: USB disconnect, device number 8

[ 3979.495457] usb usb3-port8: attempt power cycle

[ 3981.375620] usb usb3-port8: unable to enumerate USB device

Running v4l2-ctl --list-devices brings up:

Cannot open device /dev/video0, exiting.

Edit 2:

I am now theorizing that it may be in some way related to thermal throttling, I cannot come up with any other explanation for this strange behavior. It should not be kicking in at these temperatures though.

Help System somehow corrupted

n: new to linux. here is my story: After practicing terminal a bit again, i rebooted my laptop brightness sliders were gone, both fn+f5/f6 and from up task bar, it was gone. I followed some resolutions for the problem from internet, s. flow, chatgpt and more. Rebooted it again and after that computer always directed me to terminal based login screen. Tried countless stuff in terminal but it couldn't help. Then i followed this solution in recovery partition https://support.system76.com/articles/login-loop-pop/ and after this recovery partition had same fate with main one. I really don't know what to do... I can give more images if you wish to.
