[OPEN] ArcoLinuxB i3 installation problems

Post by Stenberg82 » Thu Feb 28, 2019 3:33 pm

Hi!

When I try to install ArcoLinuxB i3 on my machine using an ISO I can never reach the gui, it first fails to start lightdm and after that freezes on "checking if running in virtual box or not", I have looked around but can't find any solution that solves my problem.

I have tried the same USB iso on another computer, that one installs fine but at boot the screen is not readable and only displays graphical glitches. I can tell things are happening, like when i type the screen responds.

If anyone could guide me towards an answer to theese two questions I would be really happy since I really would like to try ArcoLinux.

Im also a noob and therefore if there is anything more I can do to help with getting information let me know.

Spec on computer 1 where i can't install
i5 processor
Nvidia RTX2080
Installing on SSD

Spec on computer 2 with graphic bug on boot
i5 processor
Nvidia GTX 1070
Installied on SSD

UPDATE:
I managed to get the install working on the second computer using nomodeset nouveau.modset=0 and then updating.

Check these links about

acpi=off

nomodeset

you can edit the grub menu when you boot with e or TAB - depends

then you add nomodeset to the end of the line

Think out of the box - the first article is from Ubuntu. All linux forums can give you a hint what to do.

Hi! You need to install nvidia driver on TTY!
I know two solution 1 is: in boot prompt klikk "e" then search for the linux line and at end of the line hit space and write 3 or runlevel 3 both working and you able to boot to tty. Login and install nvidia driver.

Second one is simple: on glitch or blackscreen issue you hit "ctrl+alt+F2" and you can login :)
I hope it helps !
