    Anyone running a 6000 series card under Arch Linux?

    As you're already running a AMD card you shouldn't have any issues unless the kernel your Mint is on is older. I was coming from a 2080Ti and even though I had removed all the nvidia drivers, Arch didn't just boot up and see there was a AMD card there. sam

    Found a Reddit thread where a few people had the same issue. I booted into recovery, ran sudo mkinitcpio -p linux, rebooted and all is fine now. sam

    Anyone running a 6000 series card under Arch Linux?

    Put a 6900XT in last night. Boots into Win 10 just fine. Arch on the other hand just gives me blank screen, no cursor. It's all up to date, not sure what the issue is. sam
