Hi. I’m new to the forum and new to linux so I really don’t have any idea what I’m doing, so please go easy on me.
I tried some distros in vbox and settled on Manjaro. Just bought a new HP Pavilion laptop, AMD Ryzen 5 with AMD Radeon Graphics. I installed the iso on a usb drive, booted it up and chose to overwrite Windows 10 and install Manjaro. Started out with everything working fine. Since I have so much free disk space I thought I’d install VirtualBox, but it gave me a kernel error. I searched the web and forums, but nothing worked and it couldn’t update the kernel.
Then, I noticed when the computer boots up it gives a couple of lines at the top and one of them was the Failed to start load kernel modules error.
I checked the forum again, but the answers seemed to pertain to nvidia graphics, not amd. There was also one solution I tried that said to type in sudo pacman -S linux510. I do have the 510 kernel, so I tried it in Konsole and got a long list of error 403 and 404’s and it couldn’t find the directories, whatever that means and it ended saying it couldn’t install. Wifi is working, so I know that’s not the problem.
So, I really don’t know what to do and I’m hoping someone can help. If you need more info, please tell me what to do to give it to you.
BTW, everything boots up and works just fine, but I’m sure this is something that needs to be fixed.
