Fresh install, blank screen with mouse only


Fresh install. Everything seems to work fine, but after login nothing but blank screen with mouse cursor. Clicking mouse do nothing. No errors in Xorg.0.log.

% pciconf -lv | grep -B3 display

Install error of TrueOS on AMD 64 bit CPU

what driver are you using? what does your xorg.conf look like?


I chose Radeon when installing OS.

I dont think I even have xorg.conf, is it still necessary? Graphical login screen works fine and mouse moving on screen after login but screen is black and everything is missing.

Do you think this is Radeon driver issue? I could test vesa driver and check if it fix problem.

update: Fluxbox-session works, so this seems to be Lumina problem.


If your card is listed as supported then no.

I had a similar/the same issue using an nvidia card on the most recent installer. Very strange.

The way I fixed it was to install on igpu by setting it to the primary adapter in bios, get past the first boot config screen, then install drivers, run nvidia-xconfig, set pcie to primary and reboot.

maybe a similar workaround will work for you
