Live USB boot hangs on "Triggering uevents..."

@ricklinux I’m running a single 1440p freesync 165hz monitor over DisplayPort. I’ve also been using the precompiles Mesa git drivers from the unofficial arch repo. Ultimately the inclusion of 6.1 and the linux-firmware packages gave me enough to troubleshoot, and updates over the past few days have things working well. I’ll try an x11 session in a bit to see what might help. Would there be anything else you might want from me to help troubleshoot? I’d be happy to provide specs, logs, etc.

@ricklinux i did make a new ISO once 6.1 and the firmware packages hit the repos and reinstalled. Still had to keyboard through the install because of an invisible cursor in xfce. It was fine except for the toggle switches in calamares for boot loader selection where I couldn’t use the keyboard to get to the next button and had to blindly get to the button.

Maybe you can post some hardware info & logs?

sudo dmesg | eos-sendlog
journalctl -b -0

But after the install it is okay?

Hey there,
Could I please also get the custom ISO?
Been fiddling with this all day :frowning:


What is your hardware?

RX7900XT, Ryzen7 3900

I can provide you an ISO with the latest kernel and firmware which should be able to boot on but you will most likely have to deal with cursor issues and flickering to get it installed and then you’ll need to install the mesa-git unofficial repo package etc. as posted above by @mjhealy

Edit: I’ll pm you a link for the ISO if you want?

Yeah, please do.

Do you think the next official release will work out of the box with everything working?

EndeavourOS is a rolling release so it’s possible with more updates it will be working. But the ISO would need to be updated to have those packages on it. I just created an ISO to try to get it booting and working which has been successful but there are issues after that need to be dealt with because mesa just isn’t there yet. You need to use the git version of mesa from this repo.

Yeah, I’ll try to do that.
I read somewhere that llvm 15 is required for this to work as well…
I have no idea why though, seminoob as I am.

I’m having difficulty with getting the journalctl back out to you, as I’m not seeing the link right away in the terminal output

How about also providing the following.

cat /var/log/endeavour-install.log | eos-sendlog

Sorry try the journal log this way. Has a brain stall.

journalctl -b -0 | eos-sendlog

Everything looks good …

So, @ricklinux ISO worked, the flickering was fixed by installing mesa-git from the repo linked above in another reply.
Going to try some games now and see where we are at.

Thanks a ton @ricklinux

Only works on wayland though, on Xorg there is no mousepointer
