Topic: Display doesn't work when booting from SSD
I used this guide to install the system on SSD:
I made two attempts, both failed.
I just issued
After I rebooted (I set the sata eeprom flag) the display didn't work. So I logged in via UART, and discovered that system is operational. But it's just bare debian. Ok, I added kosagi repo and installed all the packages found at:
apt-cache search novena
All but one - I didn't install firstrun
After that I rebooted and screen showed the U-boot sequence, but after the kernel kicked in it went black
I thought, maybe if I install novena-firstrun it will fetch some of the dependencies responsible for communicating to the eDP, but after installation the system froze showing "Setting up novena-firstrun" inside apt-get install. And subsequent boots ended up being stuck at "Starting kernel", sending serial break didn't have any effect. The system properly hanged.
I did everything explicitly as described in the aforementioned document. Except I downloaded the newer versions of the .deb packages. Rebooting into the SSD resulted in the same issue as above - system hanged on "Starting kernel". And the display only worked for a bit until the kernel started.
I haven't tried the rsync method yet, it should work, but I'd really like to set up the system from scratch myself as I tried on my first attempt. I'm sure I just missing something.
