Migrating from windows here. I made a bootable drive and tried out manjaro (KDE plasma flavour), first with open source drivers, I have an amd GPU.
My network adapter (WiFi 6E on the B650I MSI motherboard) didn’t work and I was stuck with Ethernet which I can’t use.
I booted back into windows and the network card was bricked! So I cleared the CMOS and booted back in window again, this time it was fixed.
Booting in manjaro with proprietary drivers didn’t kill my WiFi, and so I installed it.
Booting with my now manjaro disk, my network card’s bricked again. I suppose it installed and assumed to use open source drivers?
I could just clear CMOS again, but how do I allow manjaro to use the correct driver without internet?
I could sideload something from my phone but it only goes so far, I can’t run pacman on android lol.
Ask me anything you need to know, I’ll answer with what I know.
