To make a long story short, because of vmware-issues I switched to Kernel 5.10 (LTS). Before that, I used
5.15.7_rt23-1 and also had an install of
5.13.19-2 (unsupported). While on version 5.15, I installed 5.10 and uninstalled 5.15 & 5.13.
After I rebooted, manjaro automatically booted in 5.13 emergency mode. I now have to specifically select 5.10 every time I boot into manjaro with advanced options.
The weird thing is that I do not even have 5.13 installed any more. When I run
mhwd-kernel -li, the output is as follow: (after that, I also installed 5.4 but that is not of the issue here)
Currently running: 5.10.89-1-MANJARO (linux510)
The following kernels are installed in your system:
How can I remove 5.13 from my system or how can I prevent manjaro from automatically booting into 5.13?
Any help is appreciated, thank you!
Looks like you had yourself in some sort off partial-upgrade state and did not manage to fully remove 5.13 or generate proper initramfs …
I am looking for the thread where I walked someone else through it so I dont have to type it again …
OK. Here is a giant one-line command … just copypaste into terminal and hit enter, then share the output:
find /usr/lib/modules -type d -name "*5.13*" 2> /dev/null && find /boot /etc -type f \( -name "*5.13*" -o -name "*513*" \) 2> /dev/null
[edited for a better command for you]
But I am going to guess you will find some 5.13 remnants … that you would then want to remove, like example:
sudo rm /boot/vmlinuz-5.13-x86_64
sudo rm /boot/initramfs-5.13-x86_64.image
sudo rm /boot/initramfs-5.13-x86_64.fallback.image
sudo rm /etc/mkinitcpio.d/linux513.preset
sudo rm -r /usr/lib/modules/extramodules-5.13-MANJARO
sudo rm -r /usr/lib/modules/5.13*
Then reinitialize the things:
sudo mkinitcpio -P
On a side note, this is rather dangerous. Like, if you remove a chair while you’re sitting on it, you may not stay in that position for long…
After executing your find-command, I did find some 5.13 remnants, but after executing the
rm-commands and re-initialization, the issue was fixed.
Thank you very much!
Glad it worked out.
(PS - I polished up the command slightly, so maybe check again … it might find some old module directory you dont need too.)
