cant install with laptop screen

Postby mururoa » Wed Mar 26, 2014 10:15 am

Hi,
I'm installing GhostBSD on a Dell Laptop with nvidia IGP.
But all I get after booting to X is a blank screen.
I found a workaround connecting the laptop to a external screen a keeping it closed. So I had to connect extra mouse and keyboard too. And so obviously it's a resolution problem and not a driver problem.
BUT this is a workaround and you should provide a way to install it on the laptop directly with some boot option or in text mode.
Or did I miss it ?

Well, I cant let it closed or it will overheat and cant let it open or I have no screen at all.
The laptop is a latitude e6400.
And I loose all consoles (alt F1-F5) as soon as it starts xorg.
What should I do ?

Hi,
Ok I miss to give some informations. It was just the last stable version.
I was trying to install GhostBSD3.5-mate-amd64.
I played around with xorg conf without luck so far.
So the system is installed but unusable without additional mouse and keyboard and overheat around the corner.
