Recently I have attempted to install Arch Linux on my Raspberry Pi 3B for a small project. After installation of the OS according to https://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv8/broadcom/raspberry-pi-3, the text on my monitor was overflowing. I attempted to fix this by editing the FAT32 partition's config.txt file by adding the following lines:
overscan_left=10 overscan_right=10 overscan_top=30 overscan_bottom=30
However this caused my entire screen to become slanted diagonally, making the text on it completely illegible. I also attempted
But this simply reverted the system to the original overflowing problem. In a troubleshooting attempt I then tried
This resulted in the entire screen appearing essentially in italics.
I have no clue what is going on here and have as yet been unable to find any documentation online regarding the problem.
Here are my specifications:
Model: Raspberry Pi 3B V1.2
OS: Arch Linux Latest RPi 3 from http://os.archlinuxarm.org/os/ArchLinuxARM-rpi-3-latest.tar.gz
OS Installing From: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
Also, I don't know if it's important but in the config.txt file there is also this line (there at the start)
I believe this fixes a RasPi 3 bug in the display (this might affect something??). However, removing this line doesn't seem to change anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
