• Fresh install, fails on boot


    Hi,
    I recently tried installing Antergos as a dual boot on a thinkpad T60 (CPU: Intel Core2 T7200), the installation process goes well but when I try booting into Antergos it hangs at “Reached target Login prompts”.

    From looking at the logs, all seems to point to a problem with lightdm but everything looks fine in the lightdm config files and the greeter is installed correctly.

    journalctl logs
    x.org logs
    lightdm logs
    systemctl status ligthdm.service
    lightdm.conf
    lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf

    Am I missing something obvious or do you see a solution to fix this problem?

  • @alexbrenvero !

    As you say, there are problems with lightdm, the @developers are working on it and the solution is ready.

    It is very detailed information that is providing, and that is appreciated, now well; Would you be so kind to add info on /tmp/cnchi.log what would be missing, if it is not a lot of clear trouble?

    My respects

  • @alexbrenvero
    is
    xf86-video-intel
    installed? > Intel GMA 950

    pacman -S xf86-video-intel

    Logs are a bit dumped full of kernel trace related to graphics…

    You can try also early load for intel drivers:

    edit /etc/mkinitcpio.conf
    and add the Modules:

    MODULES="intel_agp i915"

    then regenerate the images:

    sudo mkinitcpio -p linux
    

    ( i have an T60 running here too upgraded CPU also ;) )

  • Thank you for answering,
    @judd sadly I cannot send you cnchi.log as it does not seem to be present in my /tmp folder.

    @joekamprad following your suggestions has improved the situation a bit, lightdm is now running and I have a cursor however at the top of the screen a dozen lines of colored pixels appear:
    alt text

    Here are my new logs:

    journalctl
    x.org
    lightdm logs
    systemctl status lightdm.service

  • tar -czf ~/cnchi-logs.tar.gz /var/log/cnchi/
    

    Will create a cnchi-logs.tar.gz under the home of current user.

    The intel driver is still faulty and produces a lot of kernel trace as before… i do not have this on my one, and i get the same graphics… but i run on lts-kernel !

  • Thank you @joekamprad , here are the cnchi logs:
    cnchi-logs.tar.gz

    I also tried updating my BIOS to the latest version but it doesn’t seem to change much.

  • xf86-video-intel is installed now?

  • Yes it is installed and I also added the module to mkinitcpio.conf and regenerated the image.

  • So you can start DE now?

    May you need to set gfx-mode for grub like this:

    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    
    # The resolution used on graphical terminal
    # note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
    # you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
    GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768
    

    save with [Ctrl+X]

    !!! You need to change 1024x768 to the resolution of your display !!!

    sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    reboot…

  • Using the LTS kernel seems to solve my problem, thanks for your help.
