I ran antergos in Virtual Box, and I fell in love instantly. I really want this to become my primary distro. So, any help to solve my problem would be fabulous.
My motherboard is GA-X99-UD4. My GPU is NVIDIA GTX 970.
I installed the antergos ISO (not the minimal one) to my USB drive from Windows 7. I booted from the USB drive. It brings up the menu system. I choose the top option offered me from antergos. (I can’t remember the exact wording. Boot UEFI USB or whatever.)
The system takes a while doing lots of things. It gives me lots of OK messages (similar to how it looked booting from a VM). Then I get pages upon pages of nouveau output. None of the output looks bad in any way; it’s just a bunch of hex values. After doing this (for about a minute), the screen just goes black (as if about to enter the GUI) and never does anything from there. I let it sit all through dinner, and the situation never improved.
How do I even begin to diagnose this issue? Is my GPU too new? Can I launch the install using the latest NVIDIA binary somehow? My motherboard has no video output; I don’t know if I can launch it using “Intel graphics” or whatnot. Would a picture of the nouveau output be of any help?
(EDIT) I’m doing some searching around. I started stumbling upon more useful information by moving away from any specific distro. It seems GTX 970/980 presents problems for just about any distro’s installation. I need to have the latest driver in place for the display to work.
