Linux kernal leads to black screen

A few days ago I updated my system, then I try to boot into Linux-Cacule, it leads to a black screen where nothing happens.

I use timeshift to revert to a time before the update.

I update the system again, when I boot into Linux-Cacule, same problem.

I use timeshift again, update firefox. Here we are now, this is a simplification though.

No inxi -Faz.
No help.



Maintainer here. I tested all kernels for my self, and everyone booted fine. Now youre the second guy who is facing that problem. Also 8 Tester before i pushed it didnt faced that problem.

I'll reworked the complete config and added many security features. I'll working on a fix. Should be pushed in the next 40 mins.

Im sorry.

Fix is in AUR and repo.

Hopefully everything is running fine. The other guy who reported the issue, said it is fixed



If the ONLY problem you have originates from using only ONE kernel, you'll never get out of that vicious cycle. Timeshift won't fix that, neither will applying the wrong solution.

If you're only lodging a bug report to that particular kernel's developer, then this is not the right subforum for that.


chroot, install linux linux-headers, linux-cacule linux-cacule-headers

update grub, done


Very well done, thank you. :slight_smile:

Not forget the thanks and cudos to @Hamadmarri :slight_smile:
