hello, I’m facing problem with the kernel version 6.2.7 and 6.2.8 on Fedora 37, after the update, when I tried to boot via those kernel, I got stuck, soft lock error on kernel. I already tried to reinstall, and check the journalctl -b 1 and journalctl -b 2, but seems because it’s failed, and the kernel is facing soft locked, it can’t even reach the journalctl.
Is there anyway to check why this is happening? I really hope My Thinkpad X220 with i7-2640m kept working beyond 2030… If possible with fedora… and newest kernel.
same issue on Thinkpad T14 2gen (intel i7) ; I’m stuck with this version: 6.0.7-301.fc37.x86_64; so all my upgrades excludes any kernel package!
I report it on bugzilla, but I can’t do anything as it can’t even boot
I just get the solution, in short you can add intremap=off to the cmdline of the kernel and enable AHCI, it fix the issue, and I can boot. The culprit is i915 intel gpu kernel mod
More detail see 2182684 – Kernel Stable 6.2.7 and 6.2.8 Can't boot on X220 Thinkpad with Soft Lock
and see Fixing Booting Problem with Kernel 6.2.x on Fedora with Thinkpad X220 – Benyamin Limanto
Hope this help!
In my case, it works installing the nvidia private driver, cause the noveau Driver not work correctly.
