I also got this error…

Are the shutdown problems with the LTS kernels >515 also on suspend/hibernate/resume actions?

postgresql seems to have been updated - the database needs upgrading…
I just deleted mine and recreated it.

I’m testing 6.7.0rc4-6 now and everything seems to work fine, wifi can be switched on-off over and over without freezes. :+1:

Looks like the “Wifi causing hangup” problem is more generic than specific to a particular chipset:

But it looks like the problem is currently mitigated in 6.7 branch … more tests needed.


Kernel 6.1.66-1 is also affected. Any tree that back-ported 7e7efdda6adb wifi: cfg80211: fix CQM for non-range use that does not contain 076fc8775daf wifi: cfg80211: remove wdev mutex (which does not apply cleanly to 6.6.y or 6.6.1) will be affected. Upstream solution so far: [PATCH] wifi: nl80211: fix deadlock in nl80211_set_cqm_rssi (6.6.x) — Linux Stable Kernel Updates


If anyone other than me is using rtl-sdr dongles (quite possibly not, as they’re fairly niche), the latest update introduces a change which seems to cause problems in some circumstances. There’s a new group “rtlsdr” and it seems this causes problems unless a user accessing the dongles has been added to that group.
I need to do a little more testing to confirm adding the user to rtlsdr is the final fix (I have to wait until some radio timeshifting jobs release my dongles). I’ll come back with my answer in a few hours.

[Edit]: this does seem to solve the problem.


Not so. Dolphin, Gwenview, Kate etc are still at 23.08.3.


Upstream released new kernels as we speak with the offending patch reverted. I simply triggered those: [Regression] 6.1.66, 6.6.5 - wifi: cfg80211: fix CQM for non-range use


After the update my DE used a completely different icon set. Turns out the ePapirus icon theme got split into its own package and since the files for it disappeared my DE used a fallback theme.

To fix it, you can either select the papirus icon theme, which you should still have installed and is very similar, or you can install the epapirus-icon-theme package to get the exact icons previously in use back.


And what DE :slight_smile: ? is with the failing the ePapirus icons?

I’d assume something similar happens regardless of the specific DE as it’s about the icon theme you have selected. But to answer your question: Cinnamon.

Same problem here using Kernel: 6.1.66-1-MANJARO. No problem if I boot using Kernel: 5.10.203-1-MANJARO.

Wifi problems will be addressed with 6.1.67 and 6.6.6 kernels. The discussion can be followed here: [Regression] 6.1.66, 6.6.5 - wifi: cfg80211: fix CQM for non-range use

6.1.65-2 and 6.5.4-3 ship with a potential fix: [PATCH] wifi: nl80211: fix deadlock in nl80211_set_cqm_rssi (6.6.x) Upstream however decided to revert the offending patch as stated already. Anyway, test and give feedback.

If the DE was Gnome, icon and other themes could no longer be compatible due to the recent update to Gnome 45, which requires new themes, addons, widgets, etc, to be 100% compatible going forward; no more gtk-3.0/gtk-4.0 themes.

In my case (chipset Mediatek MT7922) updating the kernel (mt7921e driver) to version 6.1.65-2 helped (which I can confirm after a quick test).

After a direct reboot I got the error

mt7921e: {address} driver itself failed
mt7921e: probe from {address} failed with error -5 

but powering the laptop on and off fixed it.

Checking mine I have “read access only”:

sudo ls -SAhl /etc/sudoers.d/
total 4.0K
-r–r----- 1 root root 21 Jul 14 00:45 10-installer

No problems using sudo or switching to root

Sure, a different problem could result in the same symptoms. Don’t see how that’s relevant given that I’ve already debugged it and provided the solution.
