[manjaro-dev] help reporting a kernel bug badly needed

Hi Kendell.

Since that laptop in question is rather old it might have problems with 
latest kernels. That's the reason why Manjaro offers the choice of older 
ones. Also it is possible that the computer needs a BIOS update.
In any case, once you have install Manjaro, try changing the kernel with 
**manjaro-settings-manager** to a older one. Maybe **linux44** will be 
fine already, or try 41 or even 318. You can also do that easily in the 
terminal with **mhwd-kernel**.

In general at the moment it is recommended to use 44 as the newest LTS 
kernel. The next one has been announced to be **linux49** which is not 
even available, yet, of course ;)

Just remember: The kernel setting for you ISOs is now in your 
**manjaro-tools.conf**, not in the **profile.conf**, as it used to be in 
earlier versions of **manjaro-tools**.

kind regards
