So the issue is, my keyboard (more specifically all of the usb-plugs that i have on the back of the pc [and i know that because went i plug the keyboard/mouse on the front it works just like normal]) stop working some time after boot (some times it takes a long time, some times not), and i can’t replicate it, the thing just stops working.
I had this issue for some months now but it really started to get annoying wen i installed endeavouros on my new ssd. And i thing that i’ve notice is that more often than not the keyboard stops when i’m playing games with my friends (rocket league and cs:go to be more specific).
i don’t know if this is helpful but here is my computers specs: https://0x0.st/oULN.txt
when this problem occurs again i will try to send the journal log
Well this may be obvious, but it sounds like something in power management (sleeping an idle USB port maybe). Does this happen in other distros on the same machine and/or Windows? I don’t have a solution but finding commonality or difference would point you in a direction (but maybe not a solution).
So, i’ve tried to install lts kernel, but it didn’t work, it got stuck just before the initialization, and another thing that is happening to my pc, my keyboard also don’t work on the initialization (meaning that i can’t access my motherboard) and it does not work on grub, meaning that i had to roll back a save of mine to get the right boot order on grub (with the tty)
sorry I don’t understand what you are trying to say and what you are rolling back. But also sorry it didn’t work out as expected.
Did you follow both steps:
sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
You should then have two options to choose in grub, one is linux and the other linux-lts. If you are stuck you can reboot (or switch to tty and reboot) and select the other kernel. That should work on any arch distro…
i’m rolling back into a backup that i did before installing linux-lts (using timeshift), because i was getting stuck on the tty
Did you follow both steps: Before rebooting?
have two options to choose in grub
true, but i can’t chose any, because my keyboard does not work in grub.
and another thing, when i installed linux-lts it got loaded automatic by grub, and it wasn’t loading the system (and i’m sorry if you can’t understand some of what i’m saying, i’m not a native english speaker)
Ok. Normally thats not necessary, we can troubleshoot on tty or chroot into arch using the live eos usb if you still have it. Sorry that happened never to me or anyone advised to install both kernels. Something strange going on with your hardware here.
No worries, I was just making sure I understand and trying to help.
Edit: wondering if it had anything to do with your nvidia that you couldnt boot. But if your keyboard doesnt work in grub and at boot, I assume there is not much you can do outside of your main system. But again that is strange, never encountered this issue.
Edit 2: it may be a stupid suggestion, but try to connect your keyboard into another usb on boot if not already done so, to make sure you can use it at boot or in grub.
Your best bet is to get the journal log next time it freezes your usb I assume.
I am a bit ignorant with Nvidia special settings, altough I run a hybrid intel/nvidia on one computer. @ricklinux will be more knowledgable. But just looking up the arch wiki you can set a custom setting to make sure your card settings get picked up.
