[OPEN] ArcolinuxB no boot after fresh install

Post by coroner »

Hi,

After couple months with Arcolinux on my laptop decided to install it on my desktop.
Installed ArcolinuxB Plasma but after reboot no login no access to TTY only blinking black screen. Adding nomodeset to grub did nothing.
I have nvidia card, I9 Intel with 16GB ram and installed at new SDD Kingston.
No idea what I can do more.

I know what you can do.

Download the very last iso of ArcoLinux and do a clean install - a lot of packages got updates and will fix whatever issue you have

New isos have been released yesterday.

Decide on the version here.


Learn, have fun and enjoy.

Thanks a lot Erik. I can boot now, but...
Everything is OK except resolution, got only 1024x768. Tried install new nvidia driver - still no luck.
I need 3440x1440. Xrandr gives me - failed to get size of gamma for output default.
Tried to force by editing grub config - still no luck. Any help?

EDIT: Ok, it is workin' now.

sudo nvidia-xconfig fixed the issue.
Thanks for the new iso Erik. Good job.
