I’m having issues with getting the DE to launch on Hyper-V in Windows 10. I’ve tried it on 2 different PCs, both running Intel/Nvidia CPU/GPUs on Windows 10. In both cases, the startup goes seemingly ok until the end when it halts with no desktop.
Note that when I boot from the USB stick, Manjaro starts up and displays the xfce desktop with no issue. It appears to be an interaction with Hyper-V.
The log files in both cases show the same issues with the graphics setup I believe. I would insert the text of the log file but I cannot figure out how to get it from the VM to my windows desktop other than the image of the virtual machine connection. So with your forgiveness, I post the image of the later part of the log file:
I’ve done some some searches to see if there were other Hyper-V related desktop issues and have found this (Install manjaro-kde-20.0.3 on hyper-v: Failed to start Simple Desktop Display Manager) but it doesn’t have a resolution.
I’m happy to learn how to get the actual logs from the VM if someone has that info to help provide more info for troubleshooting. I’ve looked pretty much all afternoon and can’t find a method.
I’m a beginner in the Linux world, but did have a portion of my career working in Unix environments (about 10 years ago) so I’m very rusty. My background is not IT/CS but I do like to dabble.
thanks for any help or tips,
