Hello to everyone!
Just got fed up with Windows pushing me broken updates while working/gaming and causing black screens. Treat me well please!
So, anyways, after successfully installing Manjaro on an NVME, and now currently running it, I ran into an interesting problem with the latest RT kernel (interesting to me, perhaps not to more experience users).
Kernel version 5.9_rt16-1 causes the following message to pop up at boot: mount: /sys/firmware/efi/efivars: unknown filesystem type ‘efivarfs’.
I’ve once gotten past this by sheer luck, or perhaps it’s the backup efi (I read somewhere there is one) firing up instead.
I tried the manjaro-chroot thingie with this but the issue still persists. So I ended up going back to the 5.8.16-2 kernel which is working just fine (reinstalling the OS).
The reason I was after that RT kernel was because my company is working on an animated 2D series using Blender, Krita, DaVinci and Gimp and I was thinking that there would be an improvement in latency using the real time kernel.
Any thoughts on this? Am I wrong trying to use the RT kernel for this kind of workload? Should I try the previous RT kernel 5.6.19_rt12-3? What’s the deal?
