Lack of some kernel?

It happens that I wanted to install the Hardened kernel and it does not start session itself, then I checked in AKM and it is not listed as stable at least, like Zen …

Thank you as always!

Where did you download that, I’m not seeing it on my fresh install of KDE Plasma. Thanks.

Menu → search → akm

Nope, not installed. :thinking:

$ sudo pacman -S akm

Could someone please tell me why the Zen and Hardened kernels are missing from Akm?

They’re not, look at Stable column…
Just tick :white_check_mark: desired Kenrel + headers and choose it on reboot

Thank you for your response.

It’s the same thing I did by hand and it doesn’t work, it installs just like Akm does, but it doesn’t start up and jams before the start session …

That’s weird maybe some modules not released for that Kernel yet (sometimes it could happen to zen / hardened), like for example you have to wait for older Nvidia proprietary drivers from AUR if you have one…

What does journal say when you startup, you still can get to TTY to check them, i assume?

Perhaps @anon31687413 could help you better, he’s Kernel Jesus :upside_down_face:

Very likely, although in reality you should already be loaded.

I’ve just tested on VM with EndeavourOS and KDE with zen Kernel - works and loads fine, so it must be something specific on your system that prevents it…

so those who come would have a better idea on your situation :slight_smile:

That’s not error, normal message rather for nvidia (basically it means that Nvidia is proprietary module, but it will still work)…

Well…I don’t see anything too out there for that log that could prevent booting normally, assuming that it’s log from attempt of loading with zen / hardened

  • kernel: usbhid 1-7:1.1: couldn’t find an input interrupt endpoint no idea really, but usbhid should be something like mouse / keyboard, it stands for usb Human interface device

  • ACPI errors is usual stuff (although mostly for laptops, and you seem to use normal PC, make sure you turned off Secure boot / Fast boot in UEFI/BIOS)

  • systemd-modules-load[251]: Failed to find module ‘platform-integrity’ this is also more like warning, can be ignored, as it should be removed in next Kernels to come

  • sdc also looks more like warnings for your usb drive, shouldn’t prevent boot, but you can unplug it to test if it may be a reason, just in case

You might be on to something there…I did a fresh install of KDE yesterday to try and help someone and I had two USB devices plugged in on initial boot. A USB wifi adapter and the install media. It hung on boot. I removed both USB devices and it booted normally.

All points are to be ignored, although UEFI could be the case here, but neither is an obstacle to normal boot, we will see in the next Hardened update what can happen …

Thank you equally for your time, much appreciated!

Inside the PC I have 2 disks, in one of which is EOS, I just removed the usb disk and Hardened doesn’t work.

Thanks for the contribution!
