This is perhaps the second time I’m trying to install the musl XFCE build of Void, but I’m running into several issues that seem to have no solution:
Both the live image and the fresh install freeze before loading the display manager, unless ‘nomodeset’ is added to the boot parameters.
I have a monitor where I have to force the native resolution due to a broken EDID. You usually do that using ‘gtf’ to get the timings for that resolution and refresh rate, then xrandr to add the new resolution and switch to it. Problem is, neither of those two commands are found at all by bash and they don’t seem to exist at all on either the repo or the installed system.
Before making this post, I spent about 30 minutes looking for similar issues other people might have in the forums and other places, but all the other users with issues seem to have xrandr working, which I don’t, so I can’t use their solutions or go from their solutions as a starting point.
What to do? Should I install Void from zero instead of Local Install? I tried before, but my wifi card refuses to work after the installation is done.
My Current Hardware:
- Pentium D 920
- 2 GB RAM
- Radeon HD5450 1 GB
This setup works fine with an Arch installation I have, except for some microphone issues, but I’m not using the mic anyways, so that’s a non-issue.
