Hi there! I have used Arch-based distros intermittently for the past three or so years, and although I know things aren’t perfect (especially in the world of Linux!), things have been relatively smooth sailing. EndeavourOS, for the most part, is no exception! I really like how close it is to Arch while being its own thing, unlike Manjaro, where it deviated in a few major ways.
However, since pretty much day one, I have had a few major issues, the most severe one being unable to install the
amdgpu-pro-libgl drivers, which is needed for using DaVinci Resolve, my preferred editor. Although they will install, upon a reboot, there’s… a black screen. My first instinct was to try to get into a TTY but doing the faithful
ctrl-alt-f2 did absolutely nothing. I’ve tried different computer keyboards, including one with extra arrow keys, making getting into TTYs very easily, but that also didn’t work.
I’ve talked to a few people about this, and they have no idea what’s wrong. They said it could have been an issue with my display manager, but I have no way of knowing this. If anyone has any idea why this might happen, I’m happy to hear and try them out. Thank you!
