Boot Stuck wpa supplicant

I have old endeavouros installation which I can’t remember what was the problem of this os at all
Anyway I’m guessing it’s graphic driver problem
Using inxi -Ga showed thah not any driver loaded
And stuck point was at “target reached graphical interface”
So I’m install Nvidia-470xx-dkms now the driver is load successfully but boot Stuck again but at different point >> [ok] wpa supplicant
How can I solve this problem?

a bit more info please e.g. which desktop manager are you using ?

Can you do a system-upgrade from within a shell?

sudo pacman -S archlinux-keyring , and then
sudo pacman -Syu, or simply yay


I consent with @ivanhoe post, also in the end

sudo systemctl status lightdm

sudo systemctl enable lightdm

sudo systemctl start lightdm

from the console ??

Nice tips :wink:
Seems boot Stuck?
So press Ctrl+Alt+F3 login and remove the Nvidia package reboot and first fully Update system.

After this and if you will be able to start your de again… Next step :ladder:


I tried this one but open source Nvidia driver not loaded at all
I’ll try other solutions which our friends mentioned in above posts

What is the graphics hardware?

is that possible Replace wxgtk-common with extra/wxwidgets-common cause this problem?
because when I choose yes it cant replace it ( dependency issue)

Open source driver is installed but it is running on Intel because it’s a hybrid system.
You shouldn’t be trying to install the 470xx Nvidia drivers as the GTX 860M is supported by the latest Nvidia drivers.

Im try latest driver but problem not solved.
so you say the problem was another thing , yes?
ok Im going to install latest driver using dkms from live USB…

If you are trying to install it from the live usb you would have to use arch-chroot to do that. You can’t just boot on the live ISO and install it.
