OS crashed. Must I install other kernel?

Hello, last week regularly EndOS crashes.
That means suddenly I get a black screen. The only way to continue is to restart.
AND: this happens with PC and with notebook (less often).
Kernel is 5.15.
I still have a second notebook with 5.18.
Here until now is OK.

  1. do you have an idea - what is the reason?
  2. how to install, use other kernels?
    P.S. There is no Nvidia.
    Thank you very much.

A bit difficult to guess but some hardware info and logs might give some people some idea:

You could launch the application akm (Arch Kernel Manager) if you want a graphical interface and install a kernel plus its headers.

Or use command line in a terminal:

sudo pacman -S linux-zen linux-zen-headers

for example to install the zen kernel.

In both cases, make sure you have a fully updated system before.

Once installed, reboot and choose the kernel you want to boot from the Grub boot menu (assuming you use Grub).

Your journal following a crash will be greatly beneficial for diagnoses. The wiki will be able to walk you thru providing that

Thanks.
It is strange, but in my system there is no journalclt.
[vlm@atlantis ~]$ journalclt -b -0 | eos-sendlog
bash: journalclt: Kommando nicht gefunden.
In means : command not found.
I have installed hardene kernel.
So far runs normally. :roll_eyes:

Check the orthography :wink:

Or - cut and paste this word as appropriate:
journalctl

Aren’t we all - sometimes the fingers (or the mouth!) can outrun the brain that’s supposed to be in charge…

yes, that's experience talking...

While this isn’t a big deal. Be VERY aware. Every single thing matters in terminal. Capitalization, spacing, typos dashes. Everything could make a difference for you. A careless command could be the difference between another good day, and hours of trouble shooting.

Yes, that is right.
Theoretically I know that, practically…
one forgets in haste.
But repetition and reference from good people are always good

Experience has tought us that we must proceed slowly and carefully in order to get shit done faster and better.

And now repeat after me: Om mani padme hum! Om mani padme hum! Om mani padme hum! Om mani padme hum! Om mani padme hum! Om mani padme hum! Om mani padme hum!

7x should be enough. :pray:
