MCE and other problems

Hi,

I'm a new user of Manjaro and a new forum member.

I have a problem on one of my Laptops. (The other one is running Arch).
The Manjaro-Laptop is really slow compare to the Arch-Laptop which is an older Laptop Lenovo T430s. Anyhow, following problems are:

I changed the Kernel to the newest one and I tried to change the gpu driver to bumblebee (no version number). The change of the gpu driver went to another problem (no boot) but I'm pretty sure I did something wrong. The driver was only installed, I guess.

I installed everything again to get it sorted with you, hopefully :wink: So, it's mostly untouched. Only, the Kernel is changed to the newest. And some other software is installed but shouldn't be important.

Thanks, Dan

but you are using nouveau driver

See if this is helpful


or this one

Thank you for your help.

I might be didn't described this enough. I installed bumblebee on my first installation of Manjaro. I installed Manjaro again because of other problems with bumblebee or other reasons.

But I'm more concern about the MCE & ACPI error. Actually, I would like to stick to the Open Source GPU driver but I would try it too if it's really necessary.

See here and the linked post too. Might help

You can also disable MCE although I don't know if it's a good idea.

Here's a list of the options:

Thank you for all the hints!

I'm trying to get this solved without hide a info. I'm thinking the slowelyness of the system is because of the 2 problems but I'm not sure. So, it wouldn't change anything if i disable just any log infos or something like that.

I think there are 2 Options only for MCE & ACPI. Bios update and/or a older Kernel.

The system can be slow as well because of the GPU Driver. Anyhow, I have to try it. I'll let you know when I get time for it.

Thanks

Hi,

I tried a couple of things... older Kernel like 3.18 is working without the error but has other problems. Now I have to switch my priority because I installed bumblebee (without version number) and the problem is I couldn't start nvidia-settings it just not starting. I sitched to 340 without any boot result and then per chroot and live usb to 390.

So, nvidia-setting is telling me I have to run "nvidia-xconfig". I did that and 'sudo startx' without any changes only more problems like:

Cannot register authentication agent: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Error.Failed: An authentication agent already exists for the given subject
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

I have to do more research with these info because nothing changed there. For now, I need to get the system running, properly. I tried the Open Source driver again. It's not possible to boot with the free driver anymore :triumph:

I don't wanna install the whole system again.
I need to change the resolution of the screen at first which is only in:

sudo xrandr

sudo xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 960 x 540, maximum 32767 x 32767
eDP1 connected primary 960x540+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 380mm x 210mm
   960x540       59.82* 
   864x486       60.00    59.92    59.57  
   640x480       59.94  
HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
VIRTUAL1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

It's usually 1920x1200.

And here again the

The Geforce ahsn't still a driver (N/A).

Would be great to get the resolution sorted at first. I read already about "xrandr unlisted ... " But it didn't worked out. Pretty sure I did something wrong.

Thanks,
Dan

Edit:
I tried xrandr like ...

Yeah, I don't know :rage:

Do not use sudo with xrandr, inxi or even startx!
All of them can be run as user.

Thank you.

I got the resolution done.

Now, I can solve the driver problem somehow. :wink:
