Hi! Just to clarify, I have read some forum posts that discuss a similar issue to mine but I still haven’t been able to solve it with the solutions provided. I am trying to set up my main work-station machine with dual boot (Win10-Manjaro). I have first decided to test out my hardware support with virtualization within Win10 using Oracle VirtualBox to see if any problems arise from my 3080ti video card. I downloaded the iso for Manjaro KDE Plasma, enabled CPU virtualization in BIOS and booted up the VM. During first-time boot I was getting a soft-lockup of some of my threads. This issue started to occur when trying to initialize “rule-based manager for device events and files” and it was failing to initialize journal. I have read on other forum websites that it can occur for multiple reasons including memory swap capability but I am unsure how that applies to what I am trying to do. I am fairly new to Manjaro but in the past I have setup other machines with debian-based distros (Just not on this machine). I make reference to this post since it is the only one similar to my problem. In that post OP mentions that his manages to boot but mine doesn’t it keeps trying to initialize rule-based manager for device events and files. I am unsure if it has something to do with my hardware/bios/image/vm-settings. Any help with this issue is greatly appreciated. Any resources or references that can be provided are welcome.
Just in case it is needed my pc specs are: Graphics Card: Nvidia 3080ti CPU: Ryzen 9 5950x RAM: 64Gb ddr4 3600
Thanks for trying to help! Yeah, I understand that it doesn’t use my gpu directly but wanted to test it out before commiting to install it on my spare ssd and doing the dual boot setup for grub. By any chance do you know what things to look out for in the settings of virtualbox? I am pretty sure I have set it up correctly but has been a long time since I last used VirtualBox, so idk. I am not sure if here is the best place to ask this sort of thing but at least I’ll try. I have attached a screenshot of my VM settings.
