And if I use TTY mode and try to change xorg and rc conf settings, I can’t do that because ee and vi aren’t working properly, all I see is a single line of text at the bottom of the screen which responds to my cursor controlled by arrow key, I can’t tell what was happening at all.
When I installed TrueOS before, there’s usually a screen that asks which display I would like to use on the first screen after installing TrueOS. If I choose Intel, my screen would just black out forever. I heard that there are old and new intel drivers. What worked for me was to start with the generic driver to go into TrueOS successfully, and then put in kld_list=“i915kms” in rc.conf to get right resolution.
but it seems the project trident skips this step and just automatically detects driver now
