Bluetooth support in new kernel

Been running Manjaro Gnome for a while now and I had to downgrade the kernel from 5.13 to 5.12 in order to get bluetooth working with my Bose headphones. Now the kernel is marked for EOL and was wondering if the 5.14 kernel has had any reported issues. Searched the forums but couldn’t find anything specific about this. I tried posting my inxi results be the site said I was including links somehow and blocked it.

Welcome here, @perdomot,

You can install the kernel 5.14 in addition and then boot into it to test it for your hardware. If it’s not performing well, just boot into the current kernel again and remove 5.14.

Using an EOL kernel is not recommended as it could cause issues when the support completely ends, so at least you need to check if this is mentioned in #announcements. Then you need to switch to a supported kernel prior to updating your system.

Please read this:

Especially the Linux has multiple kernels section, then try an LTS kernel and hopefully the problem will go away “automagically”. :grin:
