I am using a Sony VPCF11S1E laptop with BIOS.
I managed to install manjaro 20.0.3 on it with 5.7 kernel.
Then there was an upgrade to a 5.8 kernel.
The installation was without errors.
When I rebooted, manjaro should have started. It tried
and tried … the display remained black. Also the older
versions could no longer be started.
With a live system I could save the /home/-Directory.
Then I installed manjaro-xfce 20.1 with 5.8.6 kernel.
With the new system, I saw problems, which I cannot handle.
I cannot put my pc in suspend mode. With the older system
there was a parameter acpi_sleep=nonvs, which I had added
at the end of the variable GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT
in file /etc/default/grub. After that I made a sudo update-grub.
With the new systen, this procedure does not help.
When I enter suspend mode (in German Bereitschaft),
the system is trying and trying… without an end.
I guess the display driver is the problem. So I tried
to install the proprietary nvidia-340xx Driver:
> Using config ‘video-nvidia-340xx’ for device: 0000:01:00.0 (0300:10de:0a29) Display controller nVidia Corporation GT216M [GeForce GT 330M]
> Installing video-nvidia-340xx…
Has lib32 support: true
Processing classid: 0300
Processing classid: 0302
:: Synchronizing package databases…
- core is up to date*
- extra is up to date*
warning: nvidia-340xx-utils-340.108-1 is up to date – skipping
error: target not found: linux58-nvidia-340xx
- multilib is up to date*
Error: pacman failed!
Error: script failed!
At the end the driver is (perhaps) installed, but it is not used.
No marks for video-nvidia-340x in hardware configuration.
If I leave my PC alone for some time, the display should be locked.
This occurs. After entering my password, the screen is visible.
But the mouse and the keyboard no longer work. The mouse pointer
is in a steady state - whatever movement of the mouse or keypressing.
These are my urgent problems. That Stellarium is no longer displaying
and a lot more problems is secondary.
Please, can anybody help.
