Today I finally wanted to switch from Windows 10 to linux but after booting into the manjaro (all the messages went trough with an OK and it seemed to stay long on the [OK] reached target graphical interface) iso I get a blank screen with a underscore
I have a AMD Radeon 5700XT graphics card with the newest drivers installed (21.11.3) and a ASUS Rog Strix X570-F Gaming motherboard with the newest bios firmware.
I tried three different manjaro images and I always checked the SHA1 checksum and I even used different OS flasher like balenaetcher and rufus and two different usb sticks.
Does someone know why the booting does not work like it should?
I also tried the new SbK Gnome 21.2.0 release which I downloaded from here (SbK Gnome 21.2.0 release) but now it jumps even faster to the blank screen with an indicator.
I turned off secure boot and UEFI is default for my motherboard.
Has someone an advice why it won’t work on my system?
Thanks for trying the SbK Gnome. It only uses the free video drivers, the proprietary ones can be installed later most of the time. Did you try and select the proprietary video drivers with the regular manjaro iso? They can be selected at the boot screen.
Thanks for all comments. @manjbob I will try either in the evening or tomorrow your tips.
I just found this blog entry: [Testing Update] 2021-12-02 - TBD - #2 by philm
and under the section “Older Issues” there is this entry “For AMD GPU users having a black screen with kernel 5.10”.
If I’m right the current stable version 21.1.6 uses the kernel 5.10 or am I wrong?
