I’m new to Manjaro and I am dying to try and stick with it as my main OS.
I tried the XFCE Live OS and it worked butter smooth and kept my machine super cool in temperature.
I downloaded the latest “Manjaro XFCE Edition (17.0.5)” ISO with the official torrent file and had it checksum verified.
I made the bootable USB drive and got it to boot only with
systemd.mask=mhwd-live.service else it won’t boot.
I went on to install with “free” drivers as the “nonfree” version freezes mid-installation.
This installation is on a laptop with a hybrid GPU setup (integrated - intel, discrete - nvidia)
Now post the installation, on rebooting, the OS fails to boot and gets stuck midway.
I tried to add
systemd.mask=mhwd-live.service again, but in vain.
I also see around 3-4
PCIe Bus Error: severity=Corrected type=Physical Layer
pci=nomsi to boot params doesn’t let a successful boot completion either.
Another weird thing I noticed was booting into non-GUI mode using
systemd.unit=multi-user.target and running any
lspci command more than once, freezes the system. So any
lspci command runs successfully for the first time, but then running the same command again or a diiferent one, freezes the system.
From the non-GUI mode when I check for the graphic driver by running
lspci -v it shows
"i915" for VGA controller (Intel Corporation HD Graphics 530) and “nouveau” for the 3D controller (NVIDIA Corporation GM107M GeForce GTX 960M), which was exactly the configuration when running
lspci -v from the Live OS which runs properly.
I have also tried other boot params like,
acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2009" acpi_backlight=native
i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 tpm_tis.interrupts=0 acpi_osi=! acpi_backlight=native idle=nomwait nouveau.modeset=0(boot params from my last openSuse installation)
Please please please help me out guys…i really loved the experience on the Live OS
