[qubes-users] Installing with new kernel?

2016-12-18 Thread Baguette

Hello,

I posted a message ten days ago to this list[0] because I am unable to
install, because X just completely fails so the installer doesn't
properly come up.

It seems like there are people who are running newer kernels, but they
install them after they've installed Qubes. Is it possible to bootstrap
the installation with that newer kernel, so I can actually get things
installed? If so, how would I go about doing that?

thanks, I'd really like to get this installed!

[qubes-users] Installation failed, X failed

2016-12-09 Thread Baguette

Hello,

I attempted to install 3.2, but it failed to work. The boot failed to
get X going, and eventually it dumped me into a tmux-enabled anaconda
menu. I tried to use that menu to do the installation, but I couldn't
complete all the "spokes" (that was the word used in the anaconda
menu).

I tried to boot using the minimal graphics option for troubleshooting,
but that didn't help either. I did some searching around and found there
was this thread from 2013 that is linked on the Documentation page about
newer amd gpus, so I tried to follow that, but the link referenced in
there was broken. It talked about installing the linux-firmware package,
so I tried again to boot and when it failed I went to the terminal and
found the linux-firmware rpm and installed it, but that didn't change
anything.

The machine does have an amd radeon rx 480, but I think there are free
drivers for it.

I looked at the /tmp/X.log, and took a camera photo of the two attempts,
you can find them here: http://imgur.com/a/aaJxk
