HP Laptop - Intel/Nvida Solus 3 Install?

Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:49 am

Hey,

On my laptop HP 15-cb010-ca it will black screen freeze and lock mouse after entering password on fresh install. I believe it is a Kernel Issue and needs the Nvidia drivers on install but loads the Intel drivers by default. I seen the same issue on Linux Mint 18.3 with a newer Kernel and was fixed by loading older Kernel and then installing Nvidia drivers.

I'm desperately waiting on Solus 4 so I can use my Laptop with Solus and ditch Windows 10!

As of now I can't properly game on it under Linux because the games see it as an Intel Chip and I need it to be seen as a Nvidia chip which it does under Windows 10 drivers.

I've Tried many Linux OS's and nothing is working with recognizing my Graphic Card properly. I realized the problem when it loaded a game then it wouldn't load Civ VI under Linux... The company said only Nvidia Support for Linux. So the game under Steam looks at it as Intel and won't load the game.

Can someone please help me and look up my laptop model and see what I need to do or just wait for Solus 4 which will have Switchable Graphics support?


Please email me at troybox@outlook.com if you are able to be of assistance to me?! :)


Thank you

Troy

Can we expect Solus 4 anytime soon?

Solus never gives ETAs.

Thank you. It appears to be from my guess about 3 months or longer away from being release.

This sounds like a very pessimistic assumption.

I hope I am wrong. Though when looking at the list it seemed fair to guess 3 months. As well Considering August 2017 Solus 3 came out would be a fair target date area for a Solus 4 release in my opinion.

Hope I am very wrong and we see it today! ;)

Sunnyflunk . . . is it possible to add a kernel boot parameter like "nomodeset" on Solus to allow for installs of proprietary drivers? I know distros that by default use grub allow for that, but does Solus with it's unique boot loader (Clear Boot Manager) provide a similar option as a workaround?

Hit multiple times the space bar while the computer starts, then press 'e' on the boot menu to edit the boot parameters.
Note to make permanent changes, follow the instructions on the help center.

Code: Select all

But I was success my installation with one option in the boot option.

On your boot option choice the line and press E. Add after

Code: Select all

quiet

Code: Select all

nouveau.modeset=0
.

After installation you need to do like modification.
