Garuda (2.6.8-1):
System install date:     2022-05-10
Last full system update: 2022-10-04
Is partially upgraded:   No
Relevant software:       NetworkManager
Windows dual boot:       No/Undetected
Snapshots:               Snapper
Failed units:
  1. good news I could restore the snapshot, still awesome feature and one my favorites
  2. I did the garuda-update again to see if it was only a temporary issue, but same issue
  3. Good news is that the 6.0.0-rc7-1-mainline Kernel is working as intended

Should I restore the snapshot and simply wait for a Zen update or is this not connected to each other?

Right now I am glad I have two option Mainline Kernel or Restore snapshot.
But what would be recommended?


Unless you encounter bugginess or broken features on the RC kernel, I would just stick with that (that's what is on my FW laptop at the moment as well). That way you can keep up with your updates.

If you have any problems on the RC kernel, another option is running LTS for the next few days until the Zen kernel takes 6.0. This would also enable you to keep your packages up to date, etc.

There isn't a tremendous amount of risk in rolling back to the snapshot and just not updating your packages for a while, but it you want to keep updating just use a different kernel.


This combination is known to be broken with latest 5.19 kernel. Stay on 6.0


Thanks for the information! @mrvictory and @BluishHumility
But kinda strange, I was running the Zen Kernel all the time on my Framework.
Ah the wording, the latest 5.19, gotcha.
:man_shrugging: Mainline it is then :slight_smile:

It's not specifically the Zen kernel, it is the 5.19.12 kernel. Other 5.19.12 kernels like linux will break the display in the same way.

If you feel like hacking around a bit, this thread has a few interesting workarounds. Some folks have been able to get back into their systems on the 5.19.12 kernel by blacklisting the i915 module for example. It also appears certain kinds of externally connected displays may still allow for login.


No time for tinkering, gotta work :wink: I will stay on the 6.0 kernel.
But thanks for the information, will check it out anyway.

This should be fixed now in 5.19.13!

"This release is to resolve a regression on some Intel graphics systems that had problems with 5.19.12. If you do not have this problem with 5.19.12, there is no need to upgrade."
