I wanted to install Manjaro, but the boot process always stops at “Reached target Graphical Interface”.
At first I thought the reason for this is, that the built in Linux kernel doesn’t support my GPU yet (RX 6700 XT) but today I tried it with the 21.1 version of Manjaro with the 5.13 kernel and I still get the same problem.
If I search for your GPU in the forums, it seems that that card is not very well supported and there are a bunch of others with similar problems. The solution seems to be to add amdgpu to the mkinicpio, but that is when Manjaro is fully installed. I don’t know how to achieve something equivalent with the live installation media.
Good point. I think @cfinnberg is getting warmer about the video card. I can’t remember what the menu option is called on live media, but isn’t there a VGA equivalent mode that would at least boot and possibly get an installation started?
