Re: Having trouble install on old Dell laptop

It looks like the problem might have been 2 different bad USB sticks - I used another one, and I got the OS installed. Right now, I am trying to get the Nvidia driver I need installed. That’s been frustrating because my pkg install nvidia-driver-... command taking forever, and the machine eventually...
