Not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes:
I have an old intel classmate PC that I got for trading with a nokia N80 phone a long time ago. It has a 1.6GHz atom and 945GM (I think). I wanted arch on it because it’s bleeding edge and should, in theory, offer better performance. So the system runs quite [i:uhxdwj2s]really[/i:uhxdwj2s] well on this, plus using XFCE is a breeze - I can actually watch youtube videos at 480p perfectly fine - but I like to use gnome anway
However sometimes after updating the system breaks - like right now…
The system now hangs at “Reached target Graphical Interface”. I use sna acceleration, mesa-git, kernel-ck and a few more parameters in grub file, but to try and fix this I already went back to uxa, normal mesa and i’m using a clean grub file with normal kernel to no avail.
There are also two messages that keep popping up:
[ 218.395289] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Asking for cache data failed [ 269.595927] sd 2:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
Any ideas what might have broken this yet again? This isn’t the first time and while everything works 100% on my desktop my netbook always suffers
So besides this problem I also wanted to ask if anyone thinks I should install a different distro? I very much want to use wayland as fast as possible and going to something like for example puppy linux means I’ll probably be a year behind updates not to mention it’s ugly as sin lol
