I imaged the 20.10 version of Manjaro ARM for raspberry pi 4 using the raspberry imager and when I try to boot it boots to a black screen.
Here’s what happens
It shows the standard linux boot screen with the list of things, and all of the items in it show OK (green).
It even says Manjaro ARM in green text at one point. After this screen the raspberry changes to the black screen and nothing happens after that.
What can I do in the Black Screen
In that screen
Hitting caps or num lock works (lock indicator lights in keyboard change)
If I hit ctrl+alt+del the raspberry reboots, to the same point.
Here’s what I know:
It’s not the SD card. I booted to the latest RPi OS in the same card imaged using raspberry imager.
What I’ve tried:
Tried running the 20.06 version instead of 20.10.
Tried all the different editions: KDE, XFCE, l3
Changed the HDMI port based on another post
Verified the SHA-1 of the downloaded images against the ones in the download page, and the downloaded images are valid (hashed using 7z crc).
I just love manjaro in the short time I’ve used it on my PC and I want to use it on my Pi4, in fact, having a dedicated manjaro machine was one of the motivators for me to buy a Pi, so any help/suggestions here is appreciated.
I’ll try using etcher and tell if that’s changed anything.
yeah, I need to connect using DP for it to go 144hz (or use a dual hdmi setup), but when using a single hdmi it uses 60hz or 120hz (hdmi2.0 max). I’m connected using single hdmi, so I’m sure it’s not trying to run at 144hz.
