While installing OpenSuse Tumbleweed on an Optimus-equipped laptop, I have the problem that mid-setup (without a fixed time) the setup switches from the external GPU (which is used while booting) to the internal GPU, thus freezing the whole setup. Is there a way to prevent that? Otherwise I can not install the OS.
There are two possibilities -> texmode installation or specify BrokenModules.
Both are possible to specify in Boot options line of Bootloader screen.
- texmode is specifieed by
- BrokenModules -
BrokenModules=i915-- this prevents intel gpu driver from loading.
