Thread: Chromebook image boots to black screen.

  1. #1

    Question Chromebook image boots to black screen.

    Hi,

    I'm new to openSUSE, I decided to try it out after finding this page when looking for an OS for my old (Google updates discontinued) Chromebook: https://en.opensuse.org/HCL:ARMChromebook

    I enabled developer mode and USB boot, then tried booting from an SD card flashed with the image from the page above, everything OK so far, the device boots from the SD card but goes to a black screen after the "Starting kernel..." message.

    See: https://1drv.ms/v/s!ApiQD7WljTxbhB8l...YbZ6o?e=0B3d2g

    Any ideas? Advice?

    Being new to openSUSE, I have no idea how to proceed... my instinct would be to check the video driver but I do not know what can be done during the boot process on openSUSE.

    Nomodeset and the three other cmdline changes near the bottom of https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Nomodese...tion_Obstacles might be worth trying.
