No Nvidia choice for graphics card

Post by RoboNuggie »

Hi,
I would like to install 20.04.1 on a HP Z400 with Nvidia Quadro 600 - Graphics driver in FreeBSD 12.1 (Nvidia driver version 390 works perfectly), but no detection in the install.... No Nvidia choice at all.... and someone in the comments section of my channel also had the same issue with their Nvidia 210....

It's not a problem to install after, but it's something unusual in all the times I have installed GhostBSD.....

GhostBSD 20.04.1 comes xorg auto-setup now with Nvidia driver version 440 has the default and if your card is not supported by that driver it goes on fail-safe mode since the driver cannot be installed on the live system it is really limited what can be done. You will need to use VESA or scfb and installed Nvidia driver version 390 after the installation. We add the chose one Nvidia driver and we did choose the latest one.

Waves to my good friend RoboNuggie, the man responsible for my being here.
Forum, it is ALL his fault!!!!

BTW, that You Tube comment person was myself.
I did use default mode (vesa?) for the live USB, then later installed Nvidia 340.108
