[SOLVED] GRUB problem-nomodeset etc

Fri Mar 09, 2018 1:57 am

I have successfully installed Solus 3 MATE on a Samsung netbook N220 and done all the software updates.

The problem is that it then refuses to boot directly into Solus without assistance.

I am obliged to press “e” at every boot and insert nomodeset (between splash and systemd).

This is despite having modified /etc/default/grub using:

Code: Select all

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" 
and then running:

Code: Select all

 sudo update-grub
followed by a reboot.

What else needs to be done?

I have just found the answer in Boot Management in the Help Centre.

Return to “Installation”
