On my Lenovo Legion laptop, (Ryzen 5600H, rx 6600m) the system only kind of boots after upgrading to the latest kernels. (linux and linux-zen 6.1.12) I get into plasma, but nothing really loads, in tty nothing really works, either. Downgrading partially fixed the issue, left me with no internet access, though.
linux-lts works just fine.
Here are links to screen recordings I did with my phone:
Trying normal linux kernel:
Trying linux-zen kernel:
There’s probably a better way to read whatever it says, but I was in a hurry. I’d be glad to add that information, if you tell me how.
I mean, are they still the same kernel or did one of the maintainers finally figure out that there may be some reasoning why it might be good to have 2 different kernels available for folks?
edit: I just checked. They are still the same lol. Both latest and lts are 6.1 . . . so you may need to see about trying a different kernel until the 6.2 comes out finally. I’d try and go back to 5.15 if everything was working well for you.
While I didn’t repair it, because I needed to use it and no meaningful data was stored on it, I reinstalled Endeavour OS. Since that worked fine on 6.1.12, it must’ve been something else, that broke on some change in the kernel. Kind of weird, considering I didn’t install anything considered exotic, but hey, at least it worked.
Thanks for the help, though. Should it break again in the future, I’ll know what to do then.
