Is this normal?

In the sense of a breakage like this occurring.

no it’s not indeed !

But read here to provide better info:

could be the wifi is crashing hardly… caused by driver not working…

Bios could have an update?

from the trace it shows only this as a useful info for me… rtw88_8821ce
and pci bus timeout … autsch … not a good thing but may simply driver options issue

There is only one user in my installation. Any ‘?’ in the second log that are out of place represents that user.

Was this a fresh install? Doesn’t boot to desktop?

Edit: You are able to get into a TTY. Did you try updating?

It is an existing installation and it does boot to desktop. I have updated now. The issue has not occured

Is the WiFi working then?

It does but it disconnects connections on it’s own sometimes

kernel: i915 0000:00:02.0: [drm] *ERROR* Atomic update failure on pipe A (start=177673 end=177674) time 733 us, min 1073, max 1079, scanline start 1049, end 1080

the boot log show around 4 or 5 kernel traces it is not okay at all… it may boots but if these traces are randomly changing from wifi device to GPU DRM … there is something wrong 100% could be kernel issue so try installing and booting on LTS to validate this is the first step to do.

Did you install a package to get WiFi working or is using a kernel module?

There was a problem with the recent LTS version of the kernel. The driver disconnected the connections more frequently than with the current stable kernel. The problem was found when I was using xubuntu. My laptop uses a 2-3 year old processor and at the time I wanted to run linux on this computer and chose the best os i could rely on at the time.

I didn’t explicitly install a package for the wifi module.

i mean hardware should not have any issues with Linux or arch in general… but the traces from kernel do not look good in any way… you had issues with temperature before already or all was totally normal?

What does this show. Provide the link

sudo dmesg | eos-sendlog 

Temperature was okay sometimes it would and still heats up but cools down. The recent times it heats the cause turns out to be something like a process putting too much load on the processor but is not the wifi module.

Kernel traces from your bootlog are not all related to wifi module. They show mainly GPU issues.
Do you try already rebuilding kernel images?
Only a bet in the dark…

mkiniticpio -P

And I would really try lts kernel.

And may try booting Debian based from an ISO to see if the same kernel trace happen.

I really don’t want to risk it more than risking by upgrading the kernel through pacman. Is there any other way of getting to the cause of the problem?

it is really unclear… but as i say your hardware should not need any special boot options or such and it should work just fine independent from kernel version… but if the same traces happen all the time it indicates hardware failure or somehow a needed kernel boot option possible. Or a kernel regression of some kind … this can only be validated if you boot with another kernel like LTS one… you can install it in addition to the default one there is not much risk on that because they are installed side by side and you still can boot with the default kernel.

sudo pacman -Syu linux-lts linux-lts-headers
sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg (to add new one to the boot menu)

After this you can choose both kernels to boot on from the grub boot menu.

If LTS does not show the kernel traces we know it is simple a kernel regression… and will mostly be solved with next kernel update… it can be also that you need a firmware /Bios) update because system setup software has issues with current kernels to boot and need a fix…

HP webside shows: F.25 Rev.A 5. Aug. 2022

your log:
HP Laptop 15-dy2xxx/87FE, BIOS F.13 07/22/2021

But would need to know the exact Model of your device for a real check and to validate the Firmware is exactly for your device…

these are the logs with the recent boot using the lts kernel included.
