Librem 14 - Crash

Using my workstation pretty heavily when all of the sudden screens go black and a message pops up:“Unable to read boot sector to mark fs as dirty”

Whats up with this? What would cause this prompt?

What distro are you using for starters? Firmware all up to date?


Operating System: PureOS 10 (Byzantium)
Kernel: Linux 5.10.0-25-amd64
Architecture: x86-64

All firmware is up to date.

May fixed in Gnu Crimson.

Another crash just occurred with new errors:

firmware: failed to load rtl_nic/rtl18168h-2.fw 9-2)
unable to load firmware rtl_nic/rtl18168h-2.fw (-2)

“unable to load firmware” may be normal and harmless.

Still be happening… even with fresh install… Just when i load everything up… it can crash.

I dont think that the crashing is coming from rtl_nic however this can be blacklisted and for some reason i will research a little the L14 Ethernet controller firmware.
You can try put your Gnu Computer to performance mode or ondemand and retest.

I can try that.

Just such an odd issue. Ran diagnostics and no faults.
