I agree, pamac is very important and deserves a special treatment, though by terminal you can easily manage your updates, even the ones coming from AUR (“yaourt -Syua” my magic formula I learned here).
When a problem is faced, if you don’t want to get your hands dirty, you just wait and the solution will come.
In fact I waited for the update and now pamac is working great.
But I love Antergos and it’s my distro of choise.
And when you are on Antergos, you should know when you are, if you don’t, you better go.
I understood what my problem is.
After searching around, I made a “dmesg” and extracted that:
[ 468.262706] [drm] GPU HANG: ecode 6:0:0x87e8fffd, in kwin_x11 , reason: Hang on rcs0, action: reset [ 468.262708] [drm] GPU hangs can indicate a bug anywhere in the entire gfx stack, including userspace. [ 468.262709] [drm] Please file a _new_ bug report on bugs.freedesktop.org against DRI -> DRM/Intel [ 468.262709] [drm] drm/i915 developers can then reassign to the right component if it's not a kernel issue. [ 468.262709] [drm] The gpu crash dump is required to analyze gpu hangs, so please always attach it. [ 468.262710] [drm] GPU crash dump saved to /sys/class/drm/card0/error [ 468.262750] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting chip after gpu hang [ 490.233324] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting chip after gpu hang [ 707.040095] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting chip after gpu hang [ 817.961473] i915 0000:00:02.0: Resetting chip after gpu hang
So, it’s problem of GPU hanging coming from a crash.
I have internal Intel GPU.
I don’t know how to solve the problem.
Any kind suggestion?
Thank you for helping @manuel.
Non UEFI system here.
You were late because I already did the trick, applying your magic treat in pacman:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
I restarted the system and found out in the grub list of Antergos (that I didn’t see from months) something very strange:
1 antergos entry, 2 ubuntu entries and 2 windows 10 entries.
I was very confused, I installed grub-customizer to recheck the situation, but I didn’t see the doubles and I received a message of “new scripts available” - or something like that - inviting me to save.
I saved, restarted the system and my brand new regular Antergos grub is there.
Thank you, you easily solved an ancient problem of mine
