Manjaro version with kernel 4.11

kernel
installation

#1

Hi,
I’m ryzen user and I want to know when I can expect manjaro with default kernel 4.11 or at least 4.10 because my system can’t boot with 4.9 and for that reason I can’t install manjaro on my new pc.
I know that manjaro don’t have strict release schedule but at least some clues
Also I prefer gnome version :slight_smile:

Are you really a ryzen user? Cause @philm said Manjaro already supports ryzen OOTB on kernel 4.9 ( You didn’t even post your inxi output ) …

PS :

If you really want kernel 411 so bad, you can install them on your MSM

i am also on a ryzen system.
when you install manjaro 17.0.1 or later using kernel 4.9 installation should work fine on ryzen. at least it did for me. it shows a couple of errors during boot, but it should boot fine.

one thing to remember on ryzen systems: you have to update your motherboard firmware to the latest version!
i recommend to do that before installation.

if you want to check out the latest release of manjaro (attention, this is NOT finished), download from here:

I installed and ran Kernel 4.9 perfectly fine with my Ryzen 7 1700x.

If you really want to install 4.11 off the bat, use Manjaro Architect.

I uploaded our current development version of Manjaro KDE v17.02 with Kernel v4.11 once. Maybe that might give you a glimps of it on your Machine. Which CPU do you have exaclty, as currently I’m still able to boot Manjaro even with older kernels.

ryzen 1800x. I will test it in saturday and will return feedback.


#8

I assume you have then the X370 series of MB-Chips. I’m on B350, which works fine.


#9

asrock taichi x370. I still not test manjaro. But I promise I will give feadback later.


#10

still don’t work for me. freeze at systemd


#11

My gpu is rx 460 after week I will try with gtx 1050 to check if the problem is in the gpu


#12

manjaro 17.02 rc-1 are bootable for me. I think the issue was in mesa.
When 17.02 release is out I will make full test and will give additional feadback.


#13

Interesting. ASRock x370 Taichi, R7 1700x, and R9 Fury works perfectly fine for me on 4.9, 4.10, 4.11.

Yes. My final suspect the gpu driver. I have AMD rx 460. As I say 17.02 rc1 work fine when I test media
