I have a lenovo y500 laptop. It has Intel core i7, 16GB RAM, 2x Nvidia GT650M and 2 SSD's.
I have installed many different Linux distro's including Arch ones.
Whn i try to boot up Garuda Dr46onized version I get 3 white dots that slowly change to orange adn then nothign else. An hour on the same thing. Have tried multiple times.
When I try to install the wayfire version it boots up to some blue text that says "starting wayfier version 0.6.0". I left it running over night bt still othig. Anyone any ideas on what I can try.
Do you mean the installed system or the installer ISO?
Wayland does not work with nVidia GPU.
So does that mean I cant use wayfire or that I cant use garuda at all.
Thanks for the reply
Only Wayfire, because of nvidia. All other ISOs are Xorg and have no such problem.
I mean the installer ISO
Don't you get to the installer menu at all? Any
I guess either you haven't waited for an hour (it is really slow to load at first boot), or you haven't
burned the ISO properly, with dd method.
I get the grub boot menu. Then when I say to boot I just get the 3 white dot that change to orange dots and nothing else. Never goes into any type of display server.
I get the grub boot menu
You need to select
nonfree drivers from that menu.
It's set to nonfree. I am trying free now to see if I get any further
On free I am getting the icon now and a spinning icon. I will see if it completes.
Do you know if the Intel iGPU is disabled from BIOS?
I am not sure. I think i might be I have tried wayfire with free and it booted.
I'll chek to see if I can find out which gpu it is using.
There is no real meaning having 3 GPUs and using only one (Intel), unless you want to experiment.
Strange th mouse wont appear. not trackpad or external
So you reckon that if I use wayfire I will only get te intel gpu.
On other distro's I was always able to use the nvidia. Even other arch distros.
Yes, unless you are an expert or can learn quickly by reading technical info.
Anyway, I cannot assist on that, because I don't know how.
The mouse is there I just cant see it. I can see it highlighting stuff. That wayfire is a nice lookin desktop, seems fast too.
Thanks for all the help so far, appreciate it.
Neofetch says it is using nvidia. Doesn't mention intel for gpu at all
Excellent. I will give that a go. Is there a wifi configuration section I couldn't find 1.
I am going to reinstalll ater and try it out. Using dranogised at the moment.
I added that to ~/.profile and then /etc/profile and finaly even exported it but I still cant see any cursor.
CTRL-ALT_BACKSPACE and even rebooted. Nothing.
I'm just gonna go back dr46onised. Too much effort. Pity as I really want t treruy out wayfire. Looks a really good fast desktop
