We need more information to be able to help. Please follow this:


my device is totally frozen. How can I run a command like inxi -Fxxxza?

Try changing TTY by pressing ctrl + alt + f3, you can login & type any command there then


inxi -Fxxxza is not running there

Restore a snapshot.

I don't have snapshot. It's first time install

You don't say much, so how anyone can know?

Get in your BIOS and recheck your settings.
Maybe... provide info/details about your system? If you want to, of course...

it's my device info from a previous issue

@petsam @dr460nf1r3 need help, I love this distro

First make all cats go out of your place.
Then we may be able to help.


okay, so what should I do to make it work?

It is well known that cats like to eat human tongues, so people don't open mouth to talk. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Tell your story, nobody listens.
Why did you install, while you had a system already?
Did you have similar problems on your other system, or they are new?
How did you install it, what selections have you done in the installer?
Is it the 1st boot?
etc., etc,...


Specificity is the watch word!


Looking at the Archwiki, you might try adding a boot parameter in grub

I also found that people added amd_iommu=on iommu=pt to boot parameter with success, might try that as well.


okay, So last time when i upgrade my kde it's make the same problem after update. so, I just restore the snapshot and then unfortunately I update that again and then I crashes from every side. I don't have any option. So, I reinstall it , but same issue here

And did you wipe everything thoroughly clean before re-install, or just went immediately the install?

how may I able to add that parameter?

clean the whole partition
