[OPEN] Arcolinux shuts down after boot

Post by Apoc9512 » Sun Sep 29, 2019 5:45 am

I recently decided to try out Arcolinux since it seemed like an easy install. However this turns out not to be the case. Whenever I boot up from the flash drive, and it starts to boot, it shuts down. Everything says it’s okay till the end. It said it failed a boot mnt(mount) or something. I tried ArcoB as well but it failed as well. I can’t seem to find anywhere that has this issue resolved. It’s difficult scrolling through the forums on a phone.

Not an issue that is common. We need more info to be able to help.

Not too sure how I can get more info if my laptop just shuts down before I can even do anything. If there’s anyway I can let me know. I think it’s because my laptop is an Optimus(using intel gpu and nvidia gpu) but I’m not exactly sure. I know it’s caused issues for most Linux installations. I’m trying raw arch to see if I can get some drivers installed at least.

There are posts on here about optimus - search if there are solutions for your hardware.

I believe so - even if it is a bit more technical.

I'll look into more solutions. I'll most likely be trying to use the optimums manager as bumblebee usually tanks your GPU performance. It also doesn't allow for vulkan support. If I figure it a way out of this I'll post how to on this thread.

I know by heart there are vulkan packages available. Might mean you have to uninstall others.

Perhaps start with the iso you downloaded and work backwards. Seems you tried a few iso's so I doubt it is just one corrupted download...

What software did you use to burn it to thumb drive? What settings?

Is the laptop using Secure Boot? UEFI or MBR/BIOS?

On GRUB edit (click e on the first option) and add the following do the end of the line:

Code: Select all

acpi_osi=! acpi_osi='windows 2009' noveau.modeset=0
Press [Enter] or [F10] and it should boot.
