Unable to boot - error resume: hibernation device

Sorry about that, jsut made it “unsolved” again.

As for your issue, I regret to say that I am insanely busy atm, so I do not really have the adequate time to help right now. However, perhaps there is someone else who can?

Cannot start digikam after i -Syued today

… it gives me the hard road …

[username] $ digikam digikam: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The thing is…

[username] $ pacman -Qs atlas local/atlas-lapack-base 3.10.3-1 Complete LAPACK and BLAS implementation using optimized ATLAS routines

But then…

# pacman -Ss atlas-lapack-base

Gives me nothing.
Did arch folks just removed the dependency from the repos ?

Bumblebee inactive. Discrete video card is off Geforce 680m

Bumblebee doesn’t use nVidia GPU by default. Default Bumblebee behaviour is to always use Intel GPU. It allows to save the power, and to avoid laptop’s overheating. nVidia GPU, under Bumblebee control, must be always switched off. As reported by the optirun --status command:

$ optirun --status Bumblebee status: Ready (3.2.1). X inactive. Discrete video card is off.

If nVidia GPU remains switched on, it is an abnormal Bumblebee behaviour. This is what is called Missing power off bug in the Wiki.

A command, an application, a program will run on nVidia GPU only when it is explicitly called with optirun prefix. Without optirun it will executed on Intel GPU. An example:

pwd - print working directory command will be executed on Intel GPU

optirun pwd - print working directory command will be executed on nVidia GPU

optirun command:

switches nVidia on upon startup executes a command on nVidia switches nVidia off when terminates

Problems and questions concerning kernel and hardware support.
screen freezing


I’m getting screen freezes on the reg now for a couple days after installing antergos:

$ uname -a
Linux boxname 4.14.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Tue Dec 5 19:10:06 UTC 2017 x86_64 GNU/Linux

after a freeze I run:
journalctl --since "15 minutes ago"
and am seeing the following couple of errors which look to be related:

Dec 12 13:28:14 boxname kernel: ACPI Warning: SystemIO range 0x0000000000000B00-0x00000000000

Dec 12 13:30:40 boxname kernel: nouveau 0000:01:00.0: fifo: LB_ERROR

I was thinking it has to do with the vid drivers so checked:

[[email protected] ~]$ lspci -v |grep -i nvidia
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 [GeForce GT 640] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

[[email protected] ~]$ lspci -v |grep -i nouveau
Kernel driver in use: nouveau
Kernel modules: nouveau

i’m wondering if the nvidia card is running into issues with the nouveau drivers…
