rmmod: ERROR: Module intel_lpss_pci is not currently loaded
You’re right, by the way: I should maybe start and think that this old potato of a PC (though it’s a desktop, not a laptop) gave what it could give, just retire it and buy something newer.
But then again, in Windows and even more so in Linux: it usually just works, and it is more than enough for any daily productivity of mine! The only problems are fans constantly spinning (I suspect a problem when it was built, since they never ever stopped) and heavy games, obviously, but there’s Geforce Now for that if the game is supported (even though it sucks that, on Linux, Geforce Now is limited to 60 fps via browser while the Windows and Mac app sport 120 fps in 4K…).
And another thing: I’m above moved that you guys are trying so hard to solve a minuscule problem of a noob user of a free and open source distribution. For free. Just to be helpful.
This is the kind of community I want to be a part of, in IT as in other aspects of life.
Installed hardened and headers via the Garuda settings tool, restarted with it and… it does not go to suspend.
(black screen for a minute or so, with fans still spinning and keyboard still lighted up)
I’ll do: installing from Octopi or pacman, both kernel and headers? Or can I use the Garuda Settings utility as I did for the hardened?
Another thing: if they don’t work and I want to remove them what’s the safe way to do it?
Ok, so, good news is: setting “Suspend to RAM” in BIOS as Disabled and clicking on Suspend in Garuda have my keyboard lights go off and the monitor go black and standby. And trying to wake the system up, well, actually wakes it up!
Bad news is: I hear the fans still spinning, so I guess it’s not really going into suspend.
Oh, and in the meantime I updated the system and I think I now got the latest linux-zen-6.6.2.zen1-1 kernel.
But if it is indeed not compatible with Linux, why does it suspend perfectly fine when booting from Garuda live USB (or, for that matters, with Linux Mint live USB)?
Anyways, I want to thank you all again for your kind help.
I’m sorry if I’ve exahusted you all in a very, very long thread.
I’ll try and explore on my own now, without further bothering anyone.
But we’ll see if we can manage to reach the “100 posts in a single thread” achievement.
