Memorandum in Installing Manjaro Linux


I am recently trying to use Arch Linux and finally choose the Manjaro Deepin.

After installing the system, there were some bugs that I encountered, which were put into this memorandum in case of happening again.

  1. The Manjaro KDE version will not save the token for JetBrain tools like PyCharm. This problem was reported to the forum of Manjaro by me, and might be fixed in the following versions.

  2. vedio-vesa is an Intel open-source driver for the Display Controller in Hardware Setting of Manjaro. DO NOT INSTALL THIS DRIVER Nothing will be missing if you do not install it, but once you installed the driver, the system could not enter the user interface after reboot. This problem is documented in the Manjaro Forum. The way to solve this:

    1. In the black screen, press Control+Alt+F2 at the same time;
    2. Login the system;
    3. Run sudo mhwd -r pci video-vesa to remove the driver;
    4. Reboot the system.
  3. The freezing screen problem will usually happened when the Graphics Driver is not set up properly. But this computer do not has the discrete graphics. The post said on Intel BayTrail, the freezing screen happens because of the energy management offered by the Hardware. To solve this, there are three solutions. I have tried the first solution and everything works well now.

    1. Disable c6-state. If you have grub, edit /etc/default/grub** and add the parameter intel_idle.max_cstate=1 to your **GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT**. Then run grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg as root.
    2. Patch the kernel with this. According to the bug shared.
    3. Use the BayTrail custom kernel from AUR.
