Long story short: I recently moved home after living in a different country and bought a temporary computer which I now installed a fresh version of ParrotOS on.
I’ve never been a big fan of Intel or nvidia. But now I had to use it…
So I followed the GPU guide here on parrots website: “https://docs.parrotlinux.org/info/gpu-drivers/”.
Rebooted the computer and got the typical “blank screen blinking cursor”.
Went to the terminal by doing the F1 combo.
Purged nvidia and reinstalled -> Same problem
Purged bumblebee and reinstalled -> Same problem
Purged Primus -> Same problem
apt removed as well and still same problem.
Went backwards and tried to revert it all -> same problem
Also, trying to “startx” gave error “connection refused” or “connection timed out” or similar
I now reinstalled everything and it’s back to normal but I can’t even watch youtube without lags (internet works fine, download speed while downloading the nvidia drivers was 10mbps)
Is this problem linked to https://community.parrotlinux.org/t/parrot-gui-not-coming/9645? Or am I just doing something really really bad?
