xf86-video-nouveau include [Solved]

Hello Sabayon-friends!

I have an old NVIDIA-Card Geforce GT545.
With all testisos I cannot come on plasma-desktop, before xf86-video-nouveau is installed.

Is it possible to integrate xf86-video-nouveau in test-isos?
Then I had no problems to start the isos completely.

Thanks!
Manfred

Hi

nouveau drivers are already included but the module is blacklisted
(see http://na.mirror.garr.it/mirrors/sabayo ... so.pkglist)

You can comment the black list line for nouveau module

Code: Select all

#  sed -i 's/^blacklist nouveau/# blacklist nouveau/' /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
( remove or blacklist nvidia-drivers module if needed)

Code: Select all

# equo rm nvidia-drivers --ask
reboot

Ok - i wrote from the install.iso (plasma), which I copy to USB-Stick.
When I start the USB-Stick, I cannot reach the desktop for installaing Sabayon.

Therefore I must install xf86-video-nouveau. otherwise I cannot install Sabayon.
When Sabayon is installed, I install nvidia-drivers-390.42 and mask 396.24.

iso from 2018.07.06 on USB-Stick
I boot it, but it ends with a blinking cursor.
I change to tty2 and write
modprobe nouveau
Now the desktop kde-plasma ist starting an I can install Sabayon.

Thank you very much for your help.

for the Live ISO at boot time you can try to add to the kernel line

Code: Select all

modprobe.blacklist=nvidia xdriver=nouveau

This line does not help, only modprobe nouveau on tty2.
