• Black Screen Kernel Questions


    I am an Antergos newbie, coming from using Manjaro for two or three of years. Yesterday I updated my system and today after grub loads I get a black screen but without a blinking cursor so I can’t even get a terminal command line. I rebooted into the LTS kernel and everything works but I’m unsure what to do about my kernel issue. As you know in Manjaro there is gui way of updating kernels but no so with Antergos. Are the kernels automatically updated when updating the system, or do I need to do it separately? As for my graphics card:
    Graphics: Card: Intel 2nd Generation Core Integrated Graphics Controller

    Thanks

    Yes.

    I don’t know a solution for your problem, but let’s hope another update of the kernel will appear when you update the system and that it fixes your problem.

  • I’ve been having the same issue with a Lenovo L440 lately, forcing a hard shutdown. I’ve just switched to LTS as well. The “journalctl -b” command spits out a firmware error. I see that there have been a couple of firmware updates from Lenovo since Meltdown, but I’ve never flashed a BIOS before and loathe to do it. Wonder if there are any kernel parameters I could add?

  • The current kernel is causing lot of failings…

    [updates once a week] = [90% less problems]
    how to add system logs:

  • No issues so far with LTS!

  • After an update it worked again. I could boot straight into the login screen and then onto my desktop. I updated again today and now I’m back where I was when I made my original post above and I have to choose the LTS kernel at grub. Strange.
