   On the new desktop:

[root at baetis ~]# find / -name stripes.png
find: paths must precede expression: /
Usage: find [-H] [-L] [-P] [-Olevel] [-D help|tree|search|stat|rates|opt|exec] [path...] [expression]

   The file is in /usr/share/wallpapers/.

# find --version
find (GNU findutils) 4.4.2

   On the old desktop:

[root at salmo ~]# find / -name stripes.png

# find --version
find (GNU findutils) 4.4.2

   FWIW, I upgraded the BIOS firmware on the new desktop from verion 4018
(July 9, 2018) to version 4026 (Sept. 18, 2018) and still have issues
building packages (and running 'find'.)

   I think the next step is building the 4.18.12 kernel (the most current
stable one) and upgading the 4.4.157 kernel in the new desktop.
