So basically: I downloaded Manjari gnome edition. And after successful installation, I’m not able to boot. It just shows a black screen on reboot.
I tried all the methods listed on another thread (fix-system-doesn-t-boot-boots-to-a-black-screen-or-stops-at-a-message/3906) … But none of them seem to work ( and not relevant as I’m not able to get anything on the display).
I’m very new to linux, and this is my first time trying out manjaro; please excuse me for my lack of knowledge.
I tried both, none worked … Then wiped the drive using gpart from live usb … Installed it again.
And now the problem is that it boots up, but takes a very long time ( 10+ mins; on a nvme ssd ) and then a dash appears in the upper right corner, then I have to close the lid, and only then it boots up.
