I upgraded my system. CPU, board, RAM.
I was on Intel Board and now it’s an AMD.
The system boots up, the Manjaro logo comes on screen, I got a mouse, but KDE doesn’t starts.
Sometimes I get a black screen, sometimes Firefox is on screen. I can’t do anything.
On another tty is no cml.
I tried pamac update via chroot but that didn’t help.
I’d start by offering the amd firmware by installing amd-ucode pkg in addition to the existing, and most likely now unused, intel firmware. ( Reddit - Dive into anything )
Don’t trust me blind and do your own research, I don’t own any current amd machines.
I installed the amd-ucode and made update-grub. That’s not the solution.
I removed nvidia driver but can’t install a new one.

The message is not really helpful, what kind of conflicting files?
edit: are the listetd lib32 files the conflicting ones?
edit2: seems not

at least, I was a bit
Of course I removed these files in the meantime.
The graphic drivers install was fine.
But… the problem still exists.
After boot, KDE not really comes up. Mostly there are some windows/menu that no react by click.
Before a half houre, the PC boots up fine, it needs a bit more time to come up but all seems ok.
I installed the last update with pamac. Reboot, and the same as before, not usable.
Why didn’t you just format everything?
If you’re on Linux I assume you’ve been the Microsoft Windows route and know such drastic hardware change is a no-no. From the license to the drivers.
Most OS’s will install only the necesary drivers and be done. Linux is even more optimized than windows in this regard as to not have bloat.
I know you’re trying to fix your system and probably expected for it to have basic drivers but Linux is a beast in CPU performance and tweaks in even specific architecture and instructions set. Not to mention the other components like the ones in the new motherboard that can even crash the OS.
Again, maybe trying to force it or refresh your Manjaro install might be worse and time consuming to just installing from scratch.
Lastly, always backup your personal files so they’re OS agnostic. Might be an investment at first but you will thank it in the long run. Cheers and good luck!
