Manjaro 5.10 Kernel will not boot

3 years ago

If - like me - you get stuck on boot after Manjaro updates to Linux Kernel 5.10, the solution is pretty simple:

  1. Boot into 5.9 (you can choose the option in the grub boot menu
  2. Reinstall the 5.10 kernel with:
    sudo pacman -S linux510
  3. For good measure, reinstall the Nvidia driver (if you have an Nvidia card, that is) with:
    sudo pacman -S linux510-nvidia

After that, the 5.10 kernel should boot.
