So I already made this post on the Manjaro subreddit, but anyway the thing is I recently installed an amd driver on my computer and when I booted it up it didn’t display anything other than a message saying that the light display manager had failed to start.
Also I used tty to try and reinstall the video drivers and it didn’t work, only showing a message saying that the video-modesetting config file is invalid.
Any help would be appreciated!
This is a little bit meager information. I don’t think anybody here has a glass ball.
Please provide more information:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log and
journalctl -b -0 --no-pager
Welcome to Manjaro!
To allow all of us helpful gurus on this forum TO HELP YOU, we need some basic information about your system. This probably means you described the symptoms of your problem, but now we need some more information to know where the origin of your issue is exactly.
Someone probably linked you to this tutorial, so if you’re reading this in response to a question, please click the green link above this text to bring you to the full and unabridged text of the tutorial…
How exactly do I use these commands that you sent.
I navigated to the the folder and typed the journal command and got spammed by logs
Ok so you are new to linux… now slowly:
Use if possible a install disk and boot it
open a terminal and type
manjaro-chroot -a and type 1
then copy paste the commands
line by line there Open a browser and paste the links here
I’ll make it it easy for you:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | curl --upload - https://aptget.xyz/Xorg.0.log
cat /var/log/Xorg.1.log | curl --upload - https://aptget.xyz/Xorg.1.log
for x in $(ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/); do curl --upload /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/$x https://aptget.xyz/$x; done
journalctl -b -0 --no-pager | curl --upload - https://aptget.xyz/boot.0.log
Ok I will try to boot into a live usb tomorrow, because i don’t have any usb or discs available right now.
Also do I need to boot in a live media or can I do it in tty?
Here are the links (for some reason the xorg.conf.d could not be uploaded)
Also just remove the spaces in http i did this because the forum did not let me send links
Yeah, removed " at the end… now it works.
This file is empty… try to use -1 instead of -0 for the previous boot.
Ok here you go
I think that the boot log is empty because the journalctl is not being recognized as a command
Any new information about the situation?
Here you go
As i thought… remove video-modesetting and video-vesa and reinstall video-linux.
mhwd -r video-modesetting
mhwd -r video-vesa
mhwd -i -f video-linux
You can’t use all of that stuff without a proper configuration. video-linux is enough. it contains all free drivers.
Ok I did all of the commands, should I reboot now?
Ok It worked! Thank you!
Also is there something more to do or is that it?
Just don’t install them again… inform yourself what a specific driver does before installing. On Linux you have to think before doing unlike on windows
Ok I will be more careful next time I install drivers, I mean i don’t even know why I did that in the first place.
Anyway is there a way I can pay for your help? (I know that the forum is free, I just would like to compensate for the help).
Thank you for your offer and I am really flattered that you appreciate my help, but the money would be better invested in Manjaro development and and the free services it offers.
Ok! It’s only fair to give back to the developers that provide this awesome operating system, and it’s community
