hey PCI bus error problem solved what about “Failed to start load kernel modules”


dkms install deepin-anything/0.0.3 -k 4.20.0-1-MANJARO
was installed but now way.


That’s a win!

Check this

systemctl status systemd-modules-load

and again…

If you don’t understand something, ask again.

Try this.

sudo dkms install deepin-anything/0.0.3

And then reboot.
And let me know if the error goes away.

You probably don’t need it. Follow the suggestions from people who know about Deepin, if this is your DE.

If you don’t know how to run this command, please don’t try to do it blindly. It’s not harmful now, but if you do it as a habit, you may create unsolvable problems to your installation.


You use a terminal.

Be aware that Linux isn’t an operating system for those who can’t use a computer.

i don’t try that commands. i am following only your and @thesneakyotter instructions. just dropped how to check the commands posted by you.

i have posted all the results of your instructions, except the below

pacman -Ql | grep “vfs-monitor”
pacman -Fl | grep “vfs-monitor”

the reason is i don’t know how to check this :disappointed_relieved:


They are both commands you run in a terminal, in exactly the same way as you have run every other command so far.

Which bit are you having difficulty with?


I think this should fix your problems.

First install linux-headers:

sudo pacman -S linux420-headers

And then run this:

sudo dkms install deepin-anything/0.0.3
