Hello, I am a new(ish) linux user who has just tried switching from Pop-OS to Manjaro, however I have had some crucial issues with Nvidia drivers, making it unusable. Also, please explain everything like I am 5, because this is my first time using an arch based distribution at all.
Anyways, the first driver related issue that I have is when first trying to boot into Manjaro from a live USB. Before putting you in the live environment, it asks if you want to use proprietary drivers, and every time I try, it does not work, and is stuck saying “a start job is running for LiveMedia MHWD Script”.
I don’t know how to log this stuff so bare with me.
To get around this problem, I have to use the open source drivers, and then would have to install the proprietary drivers from there, however, if I install Nvidia drivers on a Manjaro system, I will immediately notice upon trying to reboot, that the reboot button does not work, and I have to do a hard shutdown with the power button. And upon reboot from the hard shutdown, my system will not go to the GUI, and gets stuck on the command saying “audit: type=1334 audit(1675291099.083:42): prog-id=0 op=UNLOAD”
From here I think it is important to mention I do have access to tty2, and doing startx from there freezes the system.
Anyways, I hope you guys can help me figure out how to get Nvidia Drivers working on my system. Sorry if I did not provide enough info, as this is my first time asking for help on the forums.
Finally, I would like to mention that I only care about fixing Nvidia drivers on my actual system, and not the live USB. I just provided that because I think it correlates to the actual system not working as well. Thanks in advance guys!
