How To Run An Older Kernel Without Uninstalling Newer Kernels?


The most recent Kernel does not like my old desktop much.
I have an older Kernel installed in “Manjaro Settings Manager”.
How would I run an older Kernel without uninstalling newer Kernels?
Let me know, thanks!


If you have other kernels installed you can boot with them by selecting them in grub. Usually it’s pressing shift while booting (can be different on some DE) you can select advanced options and pick the kernel you want to boot with.

Be wary of using kernels that are marked EOL and are removed from the repos

If you want to always have the GRUB menu visible at boot, edit /etc/default/grub and change this line below… :arrow_down:


… into… :arrow_down:


Then, save the file and run… :arrow_down:

sudo update-grub

Might be worthwhile to add (if missing) or change the following entries


The causes grub to remember the version of last kernel you selected and will use it as a default for the next boot.


This will show the GRUB menu for 3 seconds and then continue the boot if you haven’t selected a different menu entry. Adjust the time value to your liking.
