straight to the point:
in this thread i suspected that reason of my OS breaks is optimus manager, it had been 3 times, so i said why not, im gonna test 2-3 times more in different environments for the sake of science.
here’s my laptop spec :
Ram : 16GB 2400mhz
CPU : core i5-6200u with intel HD 520 iGPU
GPU: nvidia gtx 940 4GB, GDDR5 version
everytime i installed OS, i thought “lets use nvidia as default cuz im too lazy to switch before gaming, not worth of logging out” so i created below config in this directory /etc/optimus-manager/optimus-manager.conf
i’ve created a thread in forum about this problem but didn’t find any real solution so everytime i had to clean install OS.
this time i did everything i was doing before, except creating that config, updated my OS few times and didn’t see any problems so yeah, i guess thats it
idk if my conclusion is correct about optimus or not, i’d be happy if u help me in case i’m wrong
The first thing you should do is look in the logs and see which module is failing to load and what the error is.
Also, is there a reason you are using a custom kernel? It seems more likely that a custom kernel would be causing a module not to load than it being optimus manager but it is hard to say without the logs.
OK, well, it is hard to diagnose without the logs.
If you ever get in that situation again, please get the logs of where the module(s) are failing to load.
Also, just for future reference, that is likely not that hard to fix from that position. You are deep enough in the boot process where you could remove optimus-manager if you think that is the problem.
Lastly, I am going to edit the title of this topic to be a bit more representative of the actual issue here.
