Apparently Radeon HD 7350 is not supported by Manjaro

I tried following arch wiki for amd southern islands. Does not work for me.
I tried checking inxi results for the same family and i found out they just use radeon, however not much info out there, seemingly not many guys out there that use manjaro with this card, maybe because it doesn't work idk. Neither radeon nor amdgpu boot for me.

With a different graphics card i can boot.

With xdriver=vesa and nomodeset i can boot to desktop.
With only nomodeset i can use tty2. It gets stuck after complaining sddm service failed to start. When i check with systemctl i see that it fails with 'core dump' whatever that is.
Inxi -G shows driver = N/A , though i think that's normal since it's still on nomodeset.

I tried downloading 19.0.2 image, though it works a little different still i'm presented with a black screen, monitor led starts blinking like signal is gone.

Where can i report this?

inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

Please use Preformatted text </> instead of Blockquote ".

Formatting information should be easier to reach. I don't really use forums much so i usually have this problem when there is no easy way or info link from tooltip.
Edit: Btw where does one report bugs and such? I'm not really looking for help here, i've been trying for days, it just doesn't work.

Do you mean as far as documentation? This is a Discourse Forum, so it uses mostly Markdown with some support for BBCode and HTML. This unofficial guide should be helpful.

You're in the right place. This is where the Manjaro developers are most active.

Radeon HD 4350 - boots fine
Radeon HD 4850 - boots fine
Radeon HD 5450 - same issue
Nvidia GTX 770 -boots fine
Nvidia 7200 GS -boots but distorted text and strange lines. To be expected it's ancient.

It seems the issue is present with Cedar graphics cards.
HD 4000 series seem to work pretty well i don't understand how newer cards have this problem. They lose signal after grub while others just boot no problem.

Ok there is no problem now it works.

The story: it was either reseating the 7350 that worked or more likely a pci ethernet card that i had to remove to fit 4850, i hadn't removed it months. So i think it was somehow bugging out my system. However now i plugged it back to the same exact slot and yet still no issues. Another thing to note is that i already had tried booting with different cards before and other cards worked. And yet another thing to note is that during this whole mess, windows 10 always booted fine, not a single time it had any sort of issues, which gets me back on to the pci card somehow bugging out.

The usb stick that i could never boot now boots easily without chaning anything.

I don't know wth that was all about, glad it's over.
