I’d like to use Slackware64 15.0 on my Librem 14. I’m currently using Slackware64 on a 2012 MacBook Pro, but the latest version is a bit slow on that old hardware, so I’d like to migrate to the Librem 14. I’m not too keen on PureOS as several of the programs I use are not terribly current in the repos and it’s quite different from Slackware in administration (I have more than 25 years of experience with Slackware and like its simplicity a lot, though it’s not perfect.)
My problem is installation. I try to install and the kernel and ram disk load fine, but then the display goes blank and the keyboard LEDs turn off. The machine is unresponsive. I’ve tried booting with the kms.s kernel (with video mode setting) but to no avail. I’m hoping someone has a solution or at least some good ideas on how to proceed.
