this appears after selecting “boot with open source drivers”:
Starting version 251.4-1-manjaro
ERROR: /dev/disk/by-label/MANJARO_KDE_2137’ device did not show up after 30 seconds…
Falling back to interactive prompt
You can try to fix the problem manually, log out when you are finished
sh: can’t acces tty: job control turned off
Unplug your boot device, plug it in, wait a few seconds and run
exit. It should boot. No idea, but on some hardware it is buggy.

what do you mean when you say ‘run
look at your keyboard. There are so called “keys” which you can press and gives you an output on the screen. Type slowly e x i t and then ENTER (I hope you find that button).
Type exit and type enter. Then you run exit.

It works, after a few seconds the mouse appears but now the problem is that the whole screen is black (but I can move the mouse), even I waited 10 minutes but it still the same.
At that point switch to another TTY:
CTRL + ALT + F1 - F7
There you should be able to login as
(Don’t forget to press ENTER)
When you are logged in, you can view some logs:
journalctl -b0 -u display-manager
Ultimately you can restart the display-manager (in other terms the login manager)
sudo systemctl restart display-manager
If that does not help. Then start you desktop environment directly:
# stop the display-manager
sudo systemctl stop display-manager
# For gnome for example:
However… if such a problem happen then it is most likely a gpu problem of some sort. Since I have no information what so ever about your system, you are on your own.

When I press ctrl + Alt + f7 and I wait, it shows:
[Ok] Finished initialize Pacman keyring
[Ok] Remached Target Multi-User System
[Ok] Reached Target Graphical interface
But I can’t do or type anything
Then, I press ctrl + Alt + F1 and I can see the mouse and black background.
How do I type those things that you say?
F1 - F7 → F1 or F2 or F3 or F4 or F5 or F6 or F7
F3 you should get a login prompt.

I am having the same problem. BUT my keyboard is not working in this mode, so I can’t even run the exit command… Any suggestions?
