So I was updating my system today and after rebooting I noticed the booting log looked somewhat different.
After putting my password on the logging screen, I was welcomed with a “Something went wrong. Disconnect and try again” type of screen. I tried several time again. Then I disconnected an external drive and my screen (I’m using a retrieved gaming laptop) and it worked. I have no idea if it’s linked.
Now, I’m using this laptop to play games on Linux, but it has the nvidia optimus tech and two graphical cards (one intel ; one Nvidia). this had led to problem in the past : Proton not working on ext4 partition - #14 by mihalycsaba
To go around this, about 2 month ago, I started using optimus-manager and always switch to “hybrid” because default Nvidia is broken with Steam game for me. Again, IDK id that’s linked but that’s the first time I encounter such a problem.
I’m not sure how I can provide the adequate output for this. Maybe my grub is broken ?
I hope you can help me,
Thank you a lot for your answers !
