@manuel Thank you for your help. I installed the L:TS kernel and initially it didn’t give me the boot choice but I found out that the grub file needed to be regenerated. And now I can boot with the LTS Kernel and keep my wireless.
Regenerate Grub file command for anyone else with this issue.
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
Oh I didn’t notice that the kernel changed. That makes more sense. Thank you very much for your help.
If going to the lts kernel messes my computer up more than this wireless issue what is the way to go back to the latest kernel? There is a way to switch between kernels right?
I updated my computer and rebooted and now my computer doesn’t detect my wireless adapter.
I last updated my computer last night so I’m thinking it was one of the new packages that got updated this morning that caused the problem. There was a big KDE update so it may have been one of those.
The wireless adapter that I use is the Alfa AWUS036ACH and it connects via USB. I’m not sure how to further diagnose and/or fix it.
I have tried the following;
My other USB devices still work and I’ve tried plugging the adapter into USB ports other devices were using therefore I don’t think it’s a USB issue.
The wireless adapter works when plugged into another computer (Windows 10) therefore I don’t think it’s the adapter’s issue.
Is there a way to rollback to yesterday to see if one of the update packages did this? Is there another way to check if the computer is seeing the wireless adapter when it gets plugged in?
All help is appreciated. Thank you
Two weeks ago my computer started booting to an emergency prompt after giving me an error.
Starting version 232 [ 5.467668] BTRFS critical (device sda3): corrupt leaf, slot offset bad: block=166520237560,root=1, slot=125 [ 5.469344] BTRFS critical (device sda3): corrupt leaf, slot offset bad: block=166520237560,root=1, slot=125 [ 5.556603] BTRFS: error (device sda3) in btrfs_replay_log:2470: error=-5 IO failure (Failed to recover log tree) [ 5.550026] pending csums is 8192 [ 5.550456] BTRFS error (device sda3): cleaner transaction attach returned -30 [ 5.701321] BTRFS: open_ctree failed mount: /dev/sda3: can’t read superblock You are now being dropped into an emergency shell. Sh: can’t access tty: job control turned off [rootfs ]#
I think I figured out what the problem is (BTRFS open_ctree failed) but I, as a Linux newbie, am having trouble figuring out exactly how I am to go about fixing it. There are a couple Arch forum posts, here and here about it but they assume a higher technical know-how than I possess and there seems to be a couple different ways to go about it as well. Can someone help me by providing the steps I need to take? I only have 1 hard drive, not multiple drives, if that makes a difference. Also confirming that I’ve correctly diagnosed the problem would help too.
Hi, I am trying to play Bioshock Infinite to run on my computer. When I try to play it through Steam it gives me a popup with
‘Unfortunately, the game requires OpenGL 4.1 to run, and your OpenGL driver does not provide support for it. The game will now exit.’
I am very new to Linux so I might be missing something obvious but I was under the impression that Mesa 12.0 provided the requirements to play Bioshock. Let me know if there is anything additional I need to do.
