I am new to Antergos and Linux and this is my first post. I would like to ask for suggestions related to problems I am having with the new Linux kernel 4.20.
Everything worked fine with 4.19. However, after updating to 4.20, I am booting into a black screen. I have this problems with all versions of 4.20, including the last one (4.20.2-arch1-1-ARCH).
After downgrading with chroot to my the last working version (4.19.8) everything is back to normal.
I cannot try anything after booting with 4.20 because the screen is black except for a few dots along a line about 1/4 from the top of the screen. I have a HP PC with Intel i7-2600 and nvidia GeForce 405.
After downgrading and rebooting I looked today in the logs. It seems that the problem is with nouveau. The “important” log (read from the gnome logs) shows:
04:45:31 kernel: nouveau 0000:01:00.0: fb: trapped write at 010174e560 on channel -1 [3fed0000 unknown] engine 06 [BAR] client 04 [PFIFO_WRITE] subclient 01 [IN] reason 00000002 [PAGE_NOT_PRESENT]
04:45:33 systemd-coredum: Process 598 (Xorg) of user 0 dumped core.
04:46:35 kernel: nouveau 0000:01:00.0: DRM: base-1: timeout
These lines are not present after booting with kernel 4.19.
Anyone has these kind of problems with Intel CPUs? I read about problems with AMD but not Intel CPUs. Any suggestions?
