I have installed Debian 8 and xfce. My machine is Lenovo Ideapad 500S. There's no information for this machine on how to properly use Debian on it.
When I install
linux-image-4.4.0-trunk-amd64 and reboot to start from that kernel, nothing appears.
Getting to the terminal and trying to do
startx or restart the service
lightdm doesn't work. X server gives up. lightdm status said something got failed.
500S has GeForce 940M. Nvidia homepage suggests installing 352.79 driver. It doesn't work. Even crashes X when booting on original 22.214.171.124 kernel. Also tried to install
nvidia-driver package and let them handle it. No changes. still got black screen on 4.4.0 kernel booting.
What should I do?
