Newbie with immediate issue
#1
Hi everyone. Newbie here and am having an immediate issue. First, my machine arrived with a malfunctioning screen. Replacement screen arrived and was installed easily. I booted and performed some application updates. Upon reboot my screen is black. I've seen this issue reported by others. I'm trying to reinstall Manjoo to the emmc. It boots just find from a microsd card and I want to use the installer. However, my network is disabled and no commands I issue will enable it. Has this happened to anyone who found a solution?

Thanks so much
Jason

Hi Jason

Sounds like you are not using the right Manjaro image and it doesn't have the right drivers for the network. I have done this myself before. Ensure you get the pinebook pro image, not the generic ARM one from the Manjaro site.

Also, I had this black screen issue after an update because "kms" was missing from mkinitpio.conf ....
