"Meanwhile, as one major Linux kernel hole is fixed, another was discovered, patched and publicized."
"Users and administrators should patch their Linux systems as soon as an update for their distro becomes available, if they haven't already done so. A fix for the flaw was not included in this month's Android update. ®"
All my systems patched themselves for this two days ago. Before those cynical, biased bastards at El Reg had even noticed anything was happening. I dare say all the other top-tier distros are similarly fully patched too.
Not at all convinced his "five a day habit" is necessarily excessive, or the cause of his ills, as has been so widely and enthusiastically reported by the mindless mass media. Even though it would exceed the recommended maximum intake.
Call me old fashioned but I'm inclined to think it possible that THE PATIENT'S CHRONIC HEPATITIS C INFECTION could, just possibly, be contributing, in some way, to those "hepatitis like symptoms."
Interesting problem! Can't help directly as I've never used either Mint or any Lexmark printer. The "healing crystal" healing weirdness suggests you might be flogging a knackered device... but a couple of thoughts spring to mind:
What "driver" are you using? Presumably the CUPS included in your Mint plus some PPD package? If so where are you getting the PPD(s)? Might be worth trying Lexmark's own pack and/or the Open Printing pack which is dated very recently. That Open Printing page describes your model as working perfectly which also makes me suspect a duff unit. Can't think why a PPD update would help particularly but can't think why a "healing crystal" would either! A less brutal electronic alternative to giving it a kick I suppose ;)
Alternatively, spinning up a Mint 18 (their first release based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS?) live ISO could be a more rational course of action, as is includes a much more recent (v2.1.3) CUPS stack. Or maybe a daily ISO of the forthcoming Ubuntu 16.10 with its very up-to-date CUPS 2.2.0
If neither of those suggestions help, the CUPS mailing list might be the place to make cries for help - possibly a more likely bet than a distro's general user forum?
Good luck old Git.
Having said that...seriously? A company changes its hardware, MS is the first to come along with drivers (yes, yes, I know - no doubt they were approached and involved from the start, but that's business), and it's somehow a conspiracy?
Interesting disingenuous rant AC. Well done. I have the feeling there's absolutely no truth in any of it.
The particular FACTS of this specific case bear no resemblance to the fantasy you describe. Lenovo hasn't "changed its hardware." Lenovo has installed perfectly standard Wintel hardware, configured the Wintel intentional-clusterfuck-UEFI to initialise that hardware EXCLUSIVELY in its PROPRIETARY Wintel mode DISABLING its STANDARD AHCI mode, and REMOVED from the UEFI the capability for the PC's "owner" to re-configure that MALICIOUS UEFI setting. This is a DELIBERATE LOCKOUT however you look at it.
As for the rest of your drivel, look again. The ones whining hypocrisy in this thread are the MS staffers and freelancers.
"...once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime* of the device... and then leave you with a device which we've locked by our "Secure [sic] Boot" mechanism to an OS which we'll suddenly start informing you is an absolutely horrendous unmitigated security catastrophe."
*i.e. Until the Microsoft Corporation Inc. (NASDAQ: MSFT) decides at its sole discretion that it's time for you to pay another round of
danegeld "essential" (MS taxed) hardware "upgrades." Must keep that old treadmill turning...

"Samsung is what is wrong with South Korea all wrapped up in one mega corrupt conglomerate. After all if you don't get good enough grades (ie if you dare sleep enough) to get a job with one of the dozen basically government ran conglomerates its suicide for you."
You sure you're not thinking of your own country AC?
It's a "social media" thing: Billions of miserable pathetic wretches desperately vying to convince their "friends" that their own miserable and pathetic existences are less miserable and pathetic than those " friends' " miserable and pathetic existences.
Post a snap of the M25 flyover and it's just a snap of the M25 flyover... but... post a snap of *yourself* at the M25 flyover and suddenly it's a different thing entirely: Look! I've "been to" the M25 flyover! OMG! Who's livin it now!!! Suckers!!!!! Don't you SOOOO wish you were me?!!!!!!one
I'd hardly call initiating a frantic public media damage limitation frenzy "shrugged off fears" myself... more indicative of a state of "is shitting himself"
...and as for... "will look back, and people will think 'How could I ever have thought about not wearing this watch?'." ...the poor man's clearly psychotic.
Someone should call someone.
The infomercial itself is still there ( http://www.theregister.co.uk/2016/04/14/professiona_indemnity_insurance_promo/ )
I wonder if this is going to be the format of future Lumia/Surface "reviews"
The "crude deletion" angle is odd. There are often articles without comments... and they don't have the button... so why leave it there?
It's certainly not 2000 upvotes in total. I've over 6000 upvotes (net) and never had a (worthless) silver badge.. Just reluctantly traded my (worthless) bronze badge in for a new moniker which (hopefully) won't make me cringe quite so much. What's puzzling me is why changing my name got me on the naughty stool... Losing the (worthless) badge I can understand - some small inducement to retain an identity for the sake of "community" or suchlike - but why the naughty stool? Are they expecting me to be so overwhelmed with excitement that I'll be rendered unable to contain some long suppressed latent urge to splaff profanity laden spam? Or have they so much time on their hands at Vulture Towers that there's nothing better to do than "moderate" the banal whiterings of people who've been splaffing away here for years without incident?
My permission to post trivial "advanced" tags has been revoked too, which also seems needlessly harsh :(
The limits seem to be arbitrary absolute data values and not some product of the capacity of any particular model... so it seems to me that the spinning rust pushers are trying to indemnify their "warranties" against covering normal wear to mechanical head/arm components and the like, or some newfangled flash buffer as JP suggests, rather than the plates of rust themselves.
Strikes me as pretty slimy.
