Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat Linux systems, for example, be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed.  If you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the '--kernel-source-path' command line option.

Please help me

Welcome to Manjaro.

Please stop what you are doing.

And review the procedures for handling drivers on Manjaro.

We do not go to some www website and download them manually.

In fact with linux … you should rarely do this for any software.

But Manjaro also has its own mechanisms for drivers and kernels. mhwd.

Or the GUI “Manjaro Settings Manager”.

For example, to print available drivers you may use:

mhwd -l


This guide will also help with how to find and post information, format code, etc.

Hi @Amir1 ,
I wonder whether you can use another kernel, because the one you are using has reached EOL.

Hope it help, regards,

Ah, good catch.
I focused on the method without even looking at the kernel.

Please install and boot into a supported kernel like 6.1 or 6.6, and then remove the dead 6.5 kernel.

(this is a supplement to above instructions about mhwd, not a replacement for them)
