I have a fresh Arch installation, running the latest kernel. I'm using systemd-boot, Xorg, GDM and Gnome.
Everything runs smoothly so far. The only issue I have is with my Decklink Card. The driver for it only works until Kernel 4.14. (see this)
To resolve this, I would like to have the LTS-Kernel installed alongside and be able to choose on bootup via the systemd-boot menu, which kernel to load.
Following this, I installed the LTS-Kernel (but didn't remove the current one)
I duplicated the original boot-entry and changed the "linux" and "initrd" parameters to point to
So far so good, but here (finally) comes the issue: - The system starts with both Kernels, but the LTS-Version doesn't launch the Graphical Interface. (It still works when I start it with the latest Kernel)
On tty1 all the green [ OK ] run through but then the system just stops with a blinking cursor. But I cannot type anything. (I can login on another tty, no problem there)
To clarify it does output the following:
[ OK ] Started GNOME Display Manager. [ OK ] Reached target Graphical Interface.
What am I missing here? What prevents the UI from showing up, since all seems... [ OK ] ?
