Manjaro i3 Edition not booting
#1
After I installed a fresh install of Manjaro i3 edition on my PBP's emmc using manjaro-arm-installer, it no longer boots. I was using i3 edition previously for over a year with absolutely no issues. My PBP doesn't show an amber light or boot in to the bios after pressing the power button. It is completely dead. It boots fine from emmc, SD card and USB drive using other editions of Manjaro and if I install i3 edition on SD card or USB, I get the same issue. So it seems there is an issue with the i3 edition itself and not the PBP or the SD card and thumb drives. Sway boots and runs fine, but I'm attached to i3. I noticed on the manjaro-arm-flasher, i3 isn't even an option, only sway so it's possible i3 isn't supported but hasn't been removed as an option from the manjaro-arm-installer? There also isn't an option for i3 download directly from Manjaro website either, only sway. I made a backup and still have my old i3 config file, so I guess I can give sway a go if i3 is a no go!

I did another install of i3 and paid closer attention to the install process. It seems like i3 edition is not supported any more. Manjaro-arm-installer does not pull packages from the repositories during the install. The reason the PBP is not booting is because the installer is not pulling the files needed to build the boot partition or the root partition for that matter so I am just winding up with a blank emmc. Can anyone confirm this?
