As the title would suggest, I’ve been unable to get an ISO to boot since the last released in September (Which has since been removed as only 2 iso’s show in the repo at all times?) all of the October releases fail to boot in one way or another with both open source and proprietary drivers and I’m at a bit of a loss as to why.
On my first attempt I used the last Sept release, which booted with open source drivers to a non-functional/lock up situation at desktop, no other ISO will get that far since, all bouncing back to login screen after a black screen and access to that ISO which could have atleast gave me a base to work from is gone
All the prior posts would seem to suggest there’s not much in the way of bare metal installs and alot is being done in VM’s.
Anyone had any luck with these ISO’s, Nvidia, bare metal? Just seems to despise my laptop.
NixOS with a custom install and ArcolinuxB work just fine so I’m at a loss.
#MandatoryF***YouNvidia before anyone says it.
I’ve managed to make the current ISO boot, not sure which of the many potential fix’s I applied did the trick, could have been the Nvidia driver reinstall, removing garuda-settings etc. hard declaring my monitor in hyprland.conf, I tried just about everything.
See how the install goes and what I’m greeted with on first boot.
– update --update
Nope, I have a seemingly identical setup between the ISO and install, one logs in to a fully functional desktop and the other doesn’t.
There is one difference I’ve noticed though, my install doesn’t have hyprstart? Had to run exec Hyprland from TTY3… Could that be something?
– update --update --update
Nope. Changing SDDM to launch with Hyprland instead of hyprstart did nothing, didn’t really expect it to as it doesn’t work from a console either… Logs don’t seem to point to anything in particular
