hello everyone. i tried to install manjaro arm on raspberry pi 3b+ using etcher. I downloaded the image (kde) from the official website and burnt it to my formatted usb drive using etcher. when i boot it up , it succesfully starts but it gets stuck on fb: switching to vc4dfrmb from simple. i left it on all night but in the morning its still stuck. how do i fix this?
i’ve never used arm with any linux, are you sure you downloaded the actual ARM release of manjaro and not the x64 one?
Yes i got it from manjaro-arm website
How are you plugging in the monitor?
With a HDMI to HDMI cable or a HDMI to DVI cable?
I’ve had similar issues when using HDMI to DVI cables.
PS: Moved to ARM category.
Hm, can you try with another cable?
Like a high quality one?
Also, confirm that the rpi is actually booted by connecting via SSH.
@Strit an you explain how to connect it to a ssh( im a newbie)
Also can you post what a high quality cable looks like (i thought they were all the same)
Turn on the rpi3 and plug in an ethernet cable from the router.
Then from your desktop, run the following command:
ssh manjaro@<IP of rpi>
If it’s booted, it will ask for the password for manjaro user, which is
manjaro by default.
A high quality HDMiIcable are usually gold on the inside (the connectors themselves).
Hi @Strit I connected ethernet cable to my Rpi while Manjaro Started up and the issue seems to be resolved as it didn’t get stuck there. I encountered another issue though. It said “failed to load regulatory.db”. How do i fix this?
