[Solved] Installation with Nvidia not possible

Post by Franky »

When calling the live cd only the input shell appeared. Probably it is because of my graphic card Nvidia GeForce GT630. FreeBSD supports this graphics card:
https://www.freshports.org/x11/nvidia-driver-390/
https://www.freshports.org/x11/linux-nvidia-libs-390/

Is it possible to start the installation from the shell without going into live mode. What do I have to enter to start the installation?

Greetings Stephan

GhostBSD seems to load only the productive Nvidia drivers 510.68.02 for installation. This driver does not support the graphics cards that require legacy drivers. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/drivers/unix/

Also a manual installation failed, because again the production driver was offered.

A solution is probably already planned here?

Would it be possible to unlock me (wintstar) in Telegram again?

I have started to add the code to install the driver, but without the internet, it is not possible. I could probably look to ship the package on the iso. The only thing more that I add things on the ISO more rams it takes to run GhostBSD live session.
