I bought a new laptop, featuring a GeForce MX 150, and when I boot manjaro Xfce from USB, the system fully hangs at
[OK] Started TLP system startup/shutdown.
Using the manjaro gnome iso, I can boot the live system’s GUI and start the installation - if I use only the free driver. But when it comes to “configuring hardware”, the machine freezes again. Also, I can trigger this behaviour manually by calling
mhwd from the command line.
I already found some people in this forum who had this issue too - but in march. Which suggests that it was solved already. Sadly, none of the solutions applied for me. And, too bad for me, I am too stupid for an all-commandline-installation (especially since I definitely want to encrypt at least my home partition, my last laptop has been stolen from me already). And yes, I already went through manjaro Architect: When I check the prompt “auto install free drivers” just before the very end, the laptop freezes, too.
So, my question is: Is there any way to install manjaro (preferably gnome flavoured) without triggering mhwd or some other way around my problem, like forcing the use of the free drivers?
