EndeavourOS AKM issues

i can’t install linux-Lts kernel with akm , how to fix this?



It needs your root password not your user password if they are different. You probably also want to install the headers as well. Fastest solution:

Open a terminal and copy paste this:

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers
Update grub:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
systemctl reboot


okay and i want install 2 kernel core/linux 5.15.11.arch2-1 and LTS can i do without any error?

Return inxi -Fxxxza --no-host and copy paste the output.

after install LTS kernel then i need to type this? inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

No. I need that output first. Then we can proceed.

You already have the linux kernel installed.

Just do this to add the LTS kernel:

Open a terminal and copy paste this:
sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers hit enter.
Update grub:
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg hit enter.
systemctl reboot hit enter and select the lts kernel in grub when rebooting.


yes done thanks for commands

If you’re using akm, you just need to click on the ones you want and hit execute and everything will also be good to go. It’s a very basic program that essentially just runs those commands.

You received an error because you entered the wrong password.


That was an authentication error. It was asking for your root password which was incorrect.
