I would like to install Arch Linux on my Acer TravelMate 5735Z. Sadly, it has a Intel GMA 4500 MHD graphic card. This means, I suffer from Kernel Bug [GM45] black screen at boot (0 backlight?).
When I boot from the installation CD for Arch Linux 2013.10.01, I can see the menu that lets me choose to install arch/boot the installed system (Ubuntu 10.04, I think)/Power off. But when I choose to install Arch, the screen gets black.
In this German article, the author seems to have found a solution for Linux Mint. But he begins with "start LiveCD in compatibility mode". As there is no such thing in the Arch Menu, I thought I had to edit the installation parameters. But when I hit tab, I get some cryptic stuff:
. linux boot/x86_64/vmlinuz archisobasedir=arch archisolabel=ARCH_201310 init rd=boot/x86_64/archiso.img
I only have WLAN, so I can't try a network installation.
How can I install Arch Linux on this computer?
