I have been using since 1 year. since i do regulary update. my wireless card was not in Kernel yeyt at time RealTek 8852AE. I was using a package rtw89-dkms-git or sometimes upstream repo rtw89 if there are problems with the packagigng
but since kernel 5.16 , rhat package is in the kernel. and there are recent update that did not work. I ask the maintainer he tested for 5.15 kernel and if the kernel is not modified .
I was wondering how come I still have kernel 5.15.133-1 . The maintainer told me that Manjaro is using 6.x kernel. I know it is possible to use different kernel but dont know how messy it will be or just install the one that are listed in Manjaro Setting app.
Do i need anythng extra like linux-firmware as well or the app takes care of it. the reason is my problems with wifi card will solved since the hernel will have it.
And also although I am updating kernel does not progress as other stuff. I am on rolling version. I believe
Its a different kernel with different kernel packages. Otherwise they get updates and are handled by the package manager the same.
Maybe you should take some time to familiarize yourself with the wiki.
Make sure you are up to date:
sudo pacman -Syu
Install a kernel:
sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux61
Then reboot and select the kernel from grub at boot.
Again I’m not sure what you mean. There is only rolling manjaro.
seems quite tricky . Do i need to enable Grub permenant or one time only ? I only want kernel that is updated as we go and current . Do i need all those kernels you listed ? Maybe shall i just reinstall with a clean install
thnk so İ will install 6.5 and 6.1 is lts I guess. Once those work with no problem remove with mhwd again or just with pacman ?
Never mind it is answered here so use both mhwd for kernel and pacman for headers https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Manjaro_Kernels#Removing_Kernels
Now I am clear why my kernel was always around 5.15 . Hopefully that adding kernel thng will go clean ; worst case I reinstall clean. because I have VirtualBox so that has modules . I need to swap it with the new modules.
One unrelated question I dont want to open a question. How do I map my Capslock to Escape. i did it on my desktop cause it was easy with Hyprland. but I looked at wiki internet ; nothng worked with Gnome Anyone knows ???
