What DE are you using?
XFCE - sorry typo…nice simple desktop, like me
I really am trying to help you but…every time you post you add another variable to the trouble shooting process. What is on the other ssd?
In terminal do:
sudo inxi -Fxxxz
that’s my DR plan! It was a bit risky upgrading that but I thought it would be fine and it was…like I said earlier, I think something in the ‘display manager’ config has got corrupt…

Did you try the zen kernel or no?
NOOOO I’m not trying the Zen kernel
I’m working! It’s just the bloody logon screen
Just thought I’d add in more variables - I get problems on the update too. In my case the fallback dies with the same error message as the normal boot (not found /boot/amd-ucode.img) which suggests the problem is in initrd. However, trying the cmdline boot (multi-user-target - without reference to amd-ucode) shows the same error!
Going to downgrade I guess… but you’re not alone!
Most of the devs here use it as well as most of the people I know…well…including me
so is the ‘zen voodoo’ using kernel 5.7? I’m not going back to 5.4 - I like to be a bit ‘modern’
takes a deep breath
It is not voodoo just another option to trouble shoot your use case…a different kernel which you refuse to do. So I leave you to someone else to chime in. I am moving this post to the newbie section.
I’m nearly convinced Is it zen 5.7.2? See I don’t think it’s a ‘kernel issue’ as such…it strikes me that it’s an environment/desktop/something weird issue
cool, nice hardware! I’m using a 35w cpu to help try and save the planet
this is what I get
sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers
[sudo] password for moi:
looking for conflicting packages…
Packages (2) linux-lts-5.4.46-1 linux-lts-headers-5.4.46-1
y for yes?
NOOOO I’m not going back to 5.4!
