I’m running Manjaro Gnome and I want to use the 5.4.67-1 LTS kernel and not the 5.8.11-1 kernel.
I tried removing the 5.8.11 kernel and the terminal returned:
sudo pacman -Rsn linux58
[sudo] password for sifu:
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: removing linux58 breaks dependency ‘linux58’ required by linux-latest
How do I remove the kernel that I don’t want to use and make it so that Manjaro will boot into kernel 5.4.67 LTS?
manjaro offers to add many kernels ,
and to select one with Grub
so add version 5.4
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux54
then reboot press Esc or Shift for Grub
and select in advanced , version kernel
if boot succeed , it will be taken next boot ( line with * )
stay always with 2 version kernels
Here’s what worked for me:
ms7845 ~]$ sudo pacman -R linux58

Kernel 5.4 was already installed so removing linux58 fixed the problem.
Here’s another link that helped me understand what to do.
