Using Manjaro KDE on kernel 5.4.62-1-MANJARO x64
So today I when I got to work I installed the new updates. It told me there where issues with installing mhwd-nvidia450xx (I was on 430xx). So I manually upgraded packages related to my videodriver to 450xx and then upgraded the OS. It seemed to have went flawless without issues.
After that, I rebooted. It’ll get stuck on
[OK] Finished TLP system startup/shutdown
I tried an older kernel that I have installed (that also had the GPU driver upgrade) and the fallback initramfs, but it does the same.
Reading online I read mainly found issues with Nvidia, which was being a bit a bitch installing on my pc too. Got some great help from the forums to fix it back then. I figured if it’s the GPU driver I might just be able to rollbsck to the 430xx version. So I tried to get into my live-boot USB I always carry with me in order to chroot into my system but I can’t get in either. It keeps giving errors on my CPU having a soft lock while running a start job for different things.
I’m at work and I kinda need this pc to continue, I’m on my phone now to write this by lack of something else. I don’t have another pc at hand right now either, but I have tonight. However, I need to continue asap. I’m kinda lost now.
I’m normally using Manjaro exactly because it’s stable and I use it for work. It’s been going well for years until it broke today.
