Help i cant install manjaro on oracle

Hello im a windows user considering switching go linux and im trying to install manjaro to test it out but everytime it reaches unpacking image 1/2 oracle gives me a error saying installation has stopped
I dont know how to fix this

What kind of installation are you talking about?

Manjaro installation when you open first start up the iso

You don’t like to talk (write) very much, do you? :wink:

check the integrity of the iso you are using
check whether you VM software (VirtualBox, I assume) actually works and can boot other OS iso’s

Thank you so much it worked i apologize if i havent respond is due to prayer times here

I do have another problem for some reason manjaro is slow and a little laggy is there another fix for this and it sometimes crashes my computer

You may need to give more resources to your VM.
Also, since it is a virtual machine, performance will always be lower than by running it natively.

Alright thank you you guys have been really helpful will definitely switch to manjaro when i finish testing


Typically when testing in VirtualBox, I give 2 GB for Linux Distros, even if they can apparent work on less, and I set 4 cores, and give VBox a 49% Execution limit… VBox protests that this is a Config issue, but it works, as requested.

On My now 7 year old Pioneer Computers DreamBook laptop (Assembled in Sydney Australia from parts imported from Clevo in Taiwan).

Operating System: Manjaro Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.6
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.96.0
Qt Version: 5.15.5
Kernel Version: 5.15.60-1-MANJARO (64-bit)
Graphics Platform: X11
Processors: 4 × Intel® Pentium® CPU N3540 @ 2.16GHz
Memory: 7.6 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: Mesa Intel® HD Graphics

Most Linux Distros run pretty close to the same as the Host. The only Distro I haven’t actually installed is Garuda, as it protests, telling me it need 2.5 Gig of RAM.

You can work around that quite easily - but the install might fail.
It probably won’t, because other similar distributions do not insist on having 2.5 GB RAM and work fine.

anyway - here is the way:

In the live system
close the welcome screen/cancel and quit the installer

sudo nano /etc/calamares/modules/welcome.conf

change the default from 2.5 to 2.0 (or however low you need to go)

    requiredStorage:    29.9
    requiredRam:        2.0

save the edited file
and restart the welcome app to (re)start the installer
which will now no longer complain about too little RAM

I’ll give that a try. Thanks.
