So I have this new Pc, currently running with Windows 11 but Im having some issues. I already have a laptop runinng Manjaro and I havent had any bad experience so far. So , I wanna know if with the following specs I will not have issues with Manjaro if I decide to switch (since I was using only my laptop for almost a year running manjaro and returning to windows feels a bit akward to me, i get use to manjaro)
Most of the time I spent gaming some E Sports (CS:GO , and Valorant , I know the last one is not so linux friendly but I dont have issues not playing it ) , documents, a bit of multimedia and some experiments
I would boot off the live media and run though a few things to make sure they work. For me, when I am testing hardware for Linux, I do the following:
Test the Wireless and Ethernet Jacks
Test the Mouse Track pad
Test the display
If I can, install software and run it.
I don’t think you will have too much problem as the laptop is all AMD based. I’d try the LTS kernel and if things still need help, go to the latest stable one. Worse case, you install Manjaro, find it doesn’t work, and you wipe and go to something else. But I think you will be ok with that hardware.
Another thing I will do is check the Arch Wiki for my particular laptop to see if there are any known issues. Also, searching for the laptop + Manjaro or Arch Linux seems to always get me some good results.
