Still relatively new to Manjaro, but not new to linux . . . end user for many years. I have a triple-boot set up on a '20 Sys76 Gaz15 laptop . . . today booted in Manjaro after running an upgrade over the weekend and I see a notification that, “Your colonel is old!!!” and another one that said, “Your colonel is unsupported, please upgrade to a newer fellow!!!”
So I launched the Setting manager and found the “Kernel” app and it listed the installed, running and now apparently “unsupported” kernel as 220.127.116.11 . . . and it showed options for one 5.12 and one 5.13, and one “experimental” of 5.14 . . . . I chose the 5.12 to install and it went through w/o error reported. And, it also showed the grub menu items as refreshing. I rebooted and I went to grub menu “advanced options” for Manjaro and after logging in it still showed “5.11”??? I shut it down and cold booted, same process and back into 5.11.
I had some issue with the kernel upgrade process previously, so I looked at the forum and found that somebody else ref’d my old thread . . . saw something about “update-grub” . . . so I ran that again and it found the other two systems . . . shutdown and cold-booted and ran -uname -r and we’re still in 5.11??
So, the question is, why would the system “see” that 5.11 is “old and unsupported” and flash a notification and then if I use the GUI “Kernel” app to install a newer kernel . . . why is it not booting into that kernel or providing the option for it in advanced options menu item in grub??? For the most part I am running a stock system upgraded via “pacman -Syyu” . . . after I got the “Your colonel is unsupported” error I ran -Syyu and it said, “Nothing to do,” but Kernel app showed running and unsupported kernel and it had an “install” button to click for 5.12, the app shows it as “installed” . . . but where is it? It’s not showing up in uname -r . . . my colonel, my colonel where for art thou??
