I know it's horrid. It sucks to hear that LXDE is a community-based release. I grew very fond of LXDE when I found out it's the fastest with a full fledged desktop environment.

I have installed manjaro-lxde-0.8-r13-0218-i686.iso on my netbook via USB.

From installation everything went great and finished successfully.

When I restarted my netbook I get the green "OK" checklist then my screen goes blank right after. Is anybody else experiencing this headache?
1st of all, you have to try to boot in text mode. You can perform this as folliwng:
Code: [Select]
reboot your PC
when the grub menu is displayed, edit the entry which is selected by default (press 'E' )
change the "kernel command" line in order to avoid the DE (add the letter '3' at the end of the line) and start booting (press 'ctrl-X')
do you get a text mode prompt? Yes? let's go ahead...
Code: [Select]
login (input your credentials)
now, let's check the hardware and available video drivers...
tell us what you get when running this:
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd -l
tell us what you get when running this:
Code: [Select]
sudo mhwd -li
Why doing it yourself when manjaro-system can do it for you?

What is to be expected? I just did a re-install of the older version. so it will work.

As the issue you described seemed to be related to graphic part, opening a text only session allows you to enter some commands... This may be useful for giving further information to the community/support and being helped.
You prefered to do a full reinstall? It's your choice

Is this fixed through external sources?
As far as I'm concerned, the issue I had with installing 0.8.4 is blank screen at boot up.

So is installing Manjaro uses the ISO for packages or does it get it from online source? Is this how the installation works? How else would it have been fixed if I'm still using the 0.8.4 ISO as installation?
