I use Manjaro since about a year and always used the latest kernel as i’m using Manjaro with a relatively new notebook with new hardware. At the time i installed Manjaro many things were not supported with the LTS Kernel and that’s why i chose to use the newest latest Kernel. Since then i have always switched to the newest latest version as soon as there is a new release.
This worked fine until now. I never had any problems and now with the upgrade to Kernel 6.4.x my first real issue has arrived. After installing and upgrading every package with pacman and pamac i have installed the 6.4.x Kernel with the Kernel selection GUI from Manjaro. After rebooting i am not able to use my keyboard from my laptop at all. As soon as Manjaro is booted the keyboard is not working. I can’t login to investigate as there is no option to get a visual keyboard to use with the mouse at this step.
When i start Manjaro with the previous Kernel (6.3.12-1) everything works as expected and i can use my keyboard again. For now i work with this Kernel but i would like to upgrade to the latest one because in my experience everything gets more stable with newer kernels.
My question now is:
Can you help me with hints on how to get on track to find the root which causes the keyboard not to work with the newest Kernel? I am a bit lost and don’t know where to start or where to look.
I would appreciate every help you can provide!
