Re: Not detecting native resolution options

Sun Dec 17, 2017 3:29 pm

I actually added nomodeset to clr-boot-manager myself. I was having some issues getting Solus to boot at all, and after searching the forums for threads describing similar issues I decided to give that a go. And it worked. If nomodeset in turn causes some of these issues that would be unfortunate, but not entirely surprising given my luck with Solus thus far. :P
I am determined to make this work, so I'm willing to give just about anything a shot. I will try removing nomodeset tomorrow, as I've got some other matters that need attending right now.

I thoroughly appreciate you taking the time to help me out here. :) I am sure I will get this running correctly eventually.

Oh no haha! :lol: I'm sure we'll figure this out somehow, it can really be super frustrating when graphics card drivers are not playing nicely... :| I'm definitely no expert so maybe the devs can figure out what's going on here better than I could too!

Okay, breakthrough. Removing nomodeset seems to fix it - but I don't know how to remove it permanently. I just removed it temporarily by pressing e during boot, locating the argument at the bottom of the screen and removing it.

So if you know how I can remove it permanently, I am hopeful that my problems are resolved.

This is how I added it, as detailed in this article.

Code: Select all

echo 'nomodeset' | sudo tee /etc/kernel/cmdline

sudo clr-boot-manager update

Edit:
Do I just remove the cmdline file? It only contains nomodeset, so that would make sense.

Of course if you added other kernel parameters, instead of deleting cmdline, you can edit it to remove whatever you want then update clr-boot-manager
