Help with errors from "journalctl"

Hello people, I was wondering where to start to fix (if needed) these errors I am getting from doing

sudo journalctl -p 3 -xb

Honestly I am kind of lost about what some of those errors means, if they are important or not, and how should I handle them, can someone please give me a hint to clear my paranoia about them?

EDIT: Oh I’m sorry I forgot to put the System info, I copied it and didn’t pasted it here, my bad:

OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
Host: Z370M DS3H
Kernel: 5.4.60-2-MANJARO
Shell: bash 5.0.18
Resolution: 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz
DE: GNOME 3.36.5

BTW, after that I installed Lightdm (and obviously disabled GDM), so if anything is GDM related I think I can skip it since I am loving LightDM a lot more

Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

You didn’t tell us what kernel you are experiencing these errors with. Please always provide the proper context so that people can properly help you. :wink:

Sorry! I put the info in the post now, copied it fron neofetch and forgot to paste it before sending it:

OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
Host: Z370M DS3H
Kernel: 5.4.60-2-MANJARO
Shell: bash 5.0.18
Resolution: 1920x1080 @ 60.00Hz
DE: GNOME 3.36.5

For a moment there, I thought you were going to tell me you ran kernel 5.8 or 5.9, but to my surprise, you’re on 5.4 LTS.

So it’s not a kernel bug ─ at least, not that I can see, and on my own machine, I am not getting any of that output you pasted. That leads me to suspect that it might be a processor bug, or possibly a BIOS or UEFI bug. Do you have a recent BIOS or UEFI?

In my opinion the ACPI and WMI errors are due to bogus firmware by your vendor.
