Performance-tweaks doesn't work in sway

Hello ,
Some days ago I wanted some extra performance for sometime as I had some kind work which required two or three times video rendering,
So I decided to install performance-tweaks to gain that but when I restarted my PC then it showed me this :

I was not able to go to log in screen and the caps lock button was continuously blinking , at that time I thought that this may get away after some updates but still the problem is same, currently I am using auto-cpufreq but it would be great if I would be able to get performance tweaks ... :slightly_smiling_face:
Thanks in advance :hugs:

Search for "black screen" in forum.
Or use last working snapshot.

umm.. looks like I have confused you somewhat
Actually what do i meant is that there is a problem with performance tweaks I had backed up my system and it is running well now,
And my graphics drivers are working well (when performance tweaks are not installed ) :slightly_smiling_face:

Last line says "Kernel Panic." What have you done so far to resolve that? You know better than to come in here empty-handed by now. :smiley:

Ok, then use other kernel :slight_smile: seems cacule do not like it.

I tried to search for it on internet but there I didn't got anything good.
what do I understood is that it's just getting problematic with performance tweaks only and when i was using KDE dr40nized with cacule then at that time with performance tweaks there was not any problem...

ok going to check out that ....

You are right, it seems that linux cacule doesn't rally like it...
And here I was juggling in arch forums like a monkey even when there was a simple answer of it,

Sometimes, I do very stupid things ... :zipper_mouth_face:

Complexities be damned! :wink:

Nah, just kidding. The #1 rule of troubleshooting is to start where it all stops. And that pretty much goes for troubleshooting anything, not just computer operating systems. Everything has a system, a path it tends to follow. Find where and what stops that flow and you're on firm ground.

You're doing just fine. Exactly where you should be.
:smiley:
