In a very similar way @AlbertoSalviaNovella had this issue with title [critical] Plasma no longer boots (55749) I’m experiencing exactly the same except the solution that worked for him doesn’t in my case.
Any recommendations on how to investigate and fix this issue?
Unfortunately I couldn’t find anything useful so far
There are many many users that have had systems for years without any show-stopping breakage.
For your particular issue, we cannot know … but the vast majority of issues are down to configuration and administration. Partial-upgrade? Missed .pacnews? Inattentive to drivers or kernels? Faulty ‘make computer faster’ config somewhere? etc etc.
stoner666, how exactly did you fix the problem? I’m using nvidia and I think I have the same problem. Nvidia updated and now it doesn’t work anymore (kde plasma). How do I reinstall nvidia exactly, please?
I think it was an upgrade problem. My system is a AMD ryzen 3700x, with a nvidia gtx 1650 gpu and ranking manjaro kde plasma 21.4. Now I removed the nvidia driver but can’t install again, script says linux513-nvidia was not found (in the repository probably). Script also says pacman failed.
Good. Managed to do it. Thank you, I would never have guessed. If I may, what kernel do you recommend? 510, as in your directed post? Also, Manjaro could notify people about this, it isn’t obvious that support for my kernel ended.
msm-notifier does it, as does manjaro-settings-manager if you open it … as it is also just general knowledge … such as seen at kernel.org
I dont do any of the notifier stuff, kuz I dont want/need it, and I manage kernels by always keeping a working LTS and then using/testing others … but those notifiers do come enabled by default.
(also the package conflicts and such is a good indicator in and of itself I would think)
Of course … I must also mention the manual… I mean wiki and user guide. wiki.manjaro.org
