it seems that ovruni closed the issue because of the comment:

"works fine with linux 4.15.10-1"

but pribib just pointed out that was linux not linux-libre - and that the problem still exists in linux-libre - so i am re-opening this

linux-libre 4.17.2_gnu-1 also gets stuck during boot
parabola-systemd-cli-dual-complete-2018.06.02.iso also gets stuck during boot, it uses kernel 4.16.11_gnu

This bug, which seems very specific to your machine, could be due to some patch we use that ArchLinux doesn't. Try to build the latest linux-libre from abslibre but without patching anything..

If that doesn't work, please send us a video or photo of the bug (if it can be a video, the better), and also try to boot in fallback mode. If fallback doesn't work, then it is a serious problem.

btw, have you tried other kernels other than linux-libre? like pck, hardened, or xtreme? those are on 4.17 too

#13

Updated by pribib about 1 year ago

problem exists with linux-libre fallback, hardened and pck too

is this the best guide to use to "build the latest linux-libre from abslibre but without patching anything"?

I have the same problem with openrc version and linux-libre 5.0, and i would like to help fix it.
In my case i have a GPU radeon rx570
And i have tried some diferent parameters at boot with grub or efi.
with grub i can boot into system with this parameter changed

set gfxpayload=text

and with rEFInd adding

nomodeset

In both cases i can't run a desktop enviroment and startx crashes with "no screens found".
