I am trying to install Clear Linux on my main system after successfully installing it on my secondary workstation.
I am experiencing this strange error upon trying to boot from the Installation Media (USB Driver w/Clear Linux) seen in the attached picture below.
Usually the “nvidiafb” is followed by another error stating: “unknown NV_Arch”, which is strange.
But in the picture above, it seems like the image was frozen before the terminal was able to display that specific line.
The boot process appears to continue as normal in the background but the image is just frozen from that point onwards.
System Specs are:
CPU: Intel Xeon-W 3175X
GPU: NVIDIA TITAN RTX
Where as the secondary workstation I was able to successfully install CL is:
CPU: AMD Ryzen ThreadRipper 2990WX
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080Ti
In order to make some progress in debugging this issue I have installed a spare AMD RX Vega Graphics Card onto my main workstation and CL simply booted as normal, so this is, with almost certainty, an incompatibility issue with the TITAN RTX graphics card specifically, as the 2080Ti boots as normal.
This does not seem like an easy fix, but I am looking forward to getting it resolved so that I can get one more system up and running with CL.
