Since the stable update on 1 October, my laptop boots to a black screen. I can switch to a TTY with ctrl+alt+f2 and if I then switch back with ctl+alt+f1 it does work and I get the regular login screen (GDM, I’m using gnome). No other problems after that, but doing the switch every boot gets old. I guess something in either my xorg or my systemd config is set up wrong, but I don’t know how to find out.
Any ideas where to start looking? I’m happy that I have never had to mess around with the video driver/xorg side of my install, but that also means I don’t know how it works (yet).
- HP Elitebook 8570w
- Intel i7-3630QM
- AMD FirePro M4000 (same chip as the HD7850 I think)
- 14 GB RAM
- Linux kernel 5.4.67-1-MANJARO
- amdgpu 19.1.0 free driver
- Gnome 3.36.6
System has been running without major issues for a year, until last week. Any ideas how to find out what’s happening?
