EndeavourOS occasionally hangs on boot


It’s me again :slight_smile: Every now and then when I start up my EndeavourOS it doesn’t go to login manager. Or at least the screen is completely blank. I press the power button and restart - and everything works. I wonder why?

I assume GRUP went through succesfully as this log is written. I didn’t start the display in time to see it though.

full journalctl -b -1 here

Ryzen 5950? Holy cow …nothing should be stopping that! What desktop are you running and display manager?

KDE Desktop environment with original window manager (KWin)
sddm login manager.

KDE can have some issues doing this if you change a lot of things. I’m assuming you have AMD video? Do you use the standard Breeze themes or something else.

Did you try removing quiet from grub? You might be able to see where it stops.

I had some issues where lightdm would not start or shutdown and I had to go to another tty to boot it up. I believe this was fixed with an update.


I have the same issue, completely different setup:

Nvidia card (but not NVIDIA drivers, only the Nouveau drivers), LightDM and Xfce.
About one in 10 boots it just goes black.

Seems to be an Arch issue; never had that issue with Fedora (with GDM/Gnome nor LightDM / Xfce) but I have had it with pure Arch, Manjaro and Endeavour.


Maybe the new kde 5.22 will fix it. I just got the updates now.

Actually I have Nvidia 3090 card. I aim to do some AI-calculation and AMD-GPU doesn’t make much sense =)

Only mod I have is Latte-dock - It’s amazing.

I have Breeze dark settings. Lets hope KDE 5.22 fixes this

Thanks! Going to remove quiet-loader and check again. Goon tip also that another tty.

Do you have Nvidia set up with all the enhancements as per the wiki? My Nvidia GTX 1060 i do and i have no issues although i run XFCE on that one.

Aaactually I didn’t have even automatic configuration provided by nvidia-xconfig. Could you be more specific regarding enchancements? I’m not sure what you mean. I checked arch-wiki on nvidia but didn’t find information of enchancements.

Think @ricklinux talk about eos wiki

Thank you. I did the enhancements. It was well described page that I actually already had read on some other problem… At least system boots up still so I didn’t screw up that badly :slight_smile: Time will tell whether it fixed the problem.

Aaaand it’s a no. Enchancements didn’t help. Today I had black screen again. However I investigated more.

Something very odd is happening. Quiet-boot is not enabled but still I cannot see what linux is loading. I switched through tty’s and saw that it tried to do something as my display showed “display port: no signal” after I changed tty’s.

PC is also very much alive and “usable”. On a blank screen I went to tty1, logged in. and boom it loaded me in - but screen is still blank. I used key-combination to start shell and restarted pc - command was accepted and pc restarted. After boot the display returned.

do you enable eraly module loading in mkninitcpio.conf and rergenerate images ? sudo mkinitcpio -P

When you added the additional enhancements did you also manually add the hook or the package nvidia-hook? That will automatically generate the mkinitcpio -P
