I have jxself's linux-libre-lts 5.15.16 working on this computer, but any later version will not allow a login prompt, neither graphical nor terminal. What could be the cause?

"What could be the cause?"

It's impossible to say without more information about what's going on.

This is an Lenovo X230 tablet. It has one luks encrypted logical partition sda5 with lvm group for root and home.

Attached are the logs from journalctl with 5.15.18-gnu and 5.15.21-gnu.

If I remember correctly, I found that 5.15.20-gnu gave me a moveable mouse pointer with a dark screen, but 5.15.18-gnu seemed stuck at boot splash.

I found that 5.15.18-gnu could not mount /home just now.

What happens if you blacklist iwlwifi? Edit or create /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf and add the line: blacklist iwlwifi

Then: sudo update-initramfs -u
And restart.

Yes, sir, that worked perfectly.

Great. I will be pushing out a kernel update so that you don't need to manually do that.

Could you please also "correct" Stefan Agner, who affirmed today that "this regression seems to not only affect 5.16 series": https://lore.kernel.org/all/00b41f5de94fca5ef995ab2c95def4aa[at]agner.ch/ (substitute "[at]" for "@").
