I have burned a Clear Linux Live Desktop ISO image to DVD.
If I boot from here and don’t do anything else I get a garbled screen on account of my Nvidia graphics card. My monitor is hooked up via HDMI to the graphics card.
In this thread (Installer fails on AMD Epyc with Nvidia GPU) there is a hint that I can press “e” and add “
modprobe.blacklist=nouveau” to the boot command line. And, yes!, that does indeed work. That will then allow me to install CLR Linux. But then when I boot in to that OS installation, same issue, the screen contents is all garbled up.
There is this tutorial (https://docs.01.org/clearlinux/latest/tutorials/nvidia.html), but a prerequisite there is “A Clear Linux OS system with a desktop installed”. So I decided to do some web browsing.
Then I found a Kubuntu install (from www.kubuntu.org). When that ISO image boots the first two options are “Start Kubuntu” and “Start Kubuntu (safe graphics)”.
So is there anything similar for the Clear Linux Live Desktop? (a ‘safe graphics’ option I mean).
