I've already tried to install Manjaro on my notebook in january. Had no luck though. So I installed it on my home PC to get used to it a little bit more and try to narrow down my problems by understanding what's going on. This was my first real Linux installation.
So, I had a problem with my notebook (specs) and wasn't able to install Manjaro (with any DE) at all. Every time i booted from USB stick, it was stuck at "Started TLP system startup/shutdown". A lot of people tried to help me by telling me to use different kernel parameters like
acpi_osi=! acpi_osi="Windows 2015" modprobe.blacklist=nouveau
but it still wouldn't work. I know now, that the problem is very likely to be graphics card and my integrated intel graphics (both, which can't be disabled in BIOS).
The difference is, that, back then, I wasn't able to boot at all. Not even into the terminal. But now at least, I am able to do that. Unfortunately I can't post you anything hardware related (like
inxi), because as soon as I try to get the information my notebook instantly freezes when it arrives at "the "Graphics" section.
Now, I tried pretty much every link google was able to dig up to that problem, may it be in the Manjaro forums, the arch forums or on reddit. Nothing worked so far.
I used the Manjaro Architect iso and installed xfce as a DE. I didn't modify the system itself, except updating it and installing the NVIDIA hybrid bumblebee drivers in its newest version (2018.08.09) and deleted the
blacklist nvidia in the
So... does anyone have an idea how to fix this? I really ran out of ideas here. I obviously tried everything mentioned here.
Edit: I don't know if it might help... Ubuntu is installing just fine. Maybe it helps to narrow it down.
