Boot failures on xfce

So I finally have had a chance to try and test the xfce iso. Unfortunately it seems to keep crashing. I'm not really able to do any testing on it as it's not completely booting. Hopefully this video will explain better. Sorry if it's poor quality.

Anyways, I gave it 4G ram (out of 12G) and 2 cpu cores (out of 4).

Here's inxi info on the host machine:

Would love to get an install running to poke around at!

Check sha1sum,
Give more RAM, CPU :wink:
Try live-ISO
Try LXQt-Kwin, i3wm or KDE :slight_smile:

My old AMD PC, Quadcore + HDD boot and install fine the Xfce ISO.
I never test it on Virtualbox.

Maybe Manjaro BSPWM do not like Garuda :smiley:


try changing graphics settings in virt-manager

try to see if qxl or virtio work

and give hdd space more than 10 gb


Hi :slight_smile:
Use at least 3 cores, I also had issues using only 2 cores.


It was the Video output!

Switching from QXL to Virtio solved it just fine.

Thanks all! I finally get to check this bad boy out.
