I am currently install the latest TrueOS on a Dell E6410 laptop. I occasionally have an acpi issue that i will work around point.
Currently i have an issue with my video. When attempting to install with everything default, i would get to a screen with the mouse and a blinking cursor. I would type in keyboard letters but not move the mouse.
After some playing around I was able to get to the installer by using safe mode and vesa failback.
Upon first install, i attempted to install with the nvidia 340 drivers. These have worked on previous linux installs, so i figured i would try them here.
I was met with just a login prompt. No video.
On irc it was suggested i try again but WITHOUT selecting video. I attempted this only to now booting up and back to the black screen with a non-responsive mouse. I am unable to get myself back into “SAFE MODE” in order to get back into a proper video mode.
Are there any suggestions on where I can go from here?
