Optimus graphics setup help

Hi fellas, It has been a while since I tried installing Sabayon. I'm up and running right now but I just can't seem to figure out how to get the built-in laptop screen to display a login prompt succesfully, I can only do so with an external monitor plugged in into the HDMI port (nvidia gpu) otherwis...

Re: KDE fails at xinit after recent update [Solved]

Has anyone solved this issue?

I just wanna say that I'm running into a similar error where my laptop's built in monitor is unable to load a login prompt, it only works if I use an external monitor (using the nvidia GTX 1060 card). Can anyone guide me to get it working?

Razer Blade 14" 2017

Thanks

Re: Aorus X5, unable to get UI on LiveCD

I gotta say that you have been such a good sport, but I'm still struggling to even boot into Sabayon. I tried your method of attempting to fix the EFI bootloader but I'm stuck in the same spot. I'm not able to boot Sabayon with Secure Boot ON or OFF. If Secure Boot is ON, the EFI bootloader complain...

Re: Aorus X5, unable to get UI on LiveCD

OK so I have spent almost half the day trying to figure this thing out. I was able to use GParted on the Sabayon LiveCD and converted my btrfs partition to ext4. Sabayon installs just fine but when I reboot, my UEFI complains about the signature verification failed and to check the boot policy in th...

Re: Aorus X5, unable to get UI on LiveCD

I had setup the partition before when I installed Ubuntu, no idea as to why it won't work, but like I said, once I have more free time, I will convert the partition to something else and give it a try

Re: Aorus X5, unable to get UI on LiveCD

Hi, I believe my USB stick was corrupt so I went and got a new one and used imageUSB rather than Unetbootin to create the bootable drive, I was able to get a working USB with three different distros (in three separate times) successfully, my mistake however, was to install Ubuntu on a BTRFS partitio...

Re: Aorus X5, unable to get UI on LiveCD

I can't figure out how to copy the log from a terminal boot. Can you walk me through on how to do it?

Re: Aorus X5, unable to get UI on LiveCD

I got a hold of my drives and gave it another try. Boot hangs with a bunch of ACPI Warnings.
Select disable ACPI on boot menu and try to boot with same errors. I'm going to try to copy the logfile of a command line boot since that is the only boot I can get so far.
