Flipchan
Hey all,
I am trying to get openbsd on a t400 laptop
The installation process works great but when it starts X the screen is just flickering and X is not working at all, is anyone running 6.6 on t400 and have any tips ?

Thanks!

Sincerely flipchan

I had some similar troubles with my T400 when installing 6.6 a couple of
months back.

I had to ensure that I was using integrated graphics, and it worked fine.
So you could try altering the bios graphics setting (under Config/Display)
to "Integrated Graphics". Also ensure you have run fw_update.

I'm now running with -current as it's working happily on whatever bios
setting is chosen, with either inteldrm (integrated) or
radeondrm (discrete).

So, my main "tip" is that if 6.6-release doesn't work for you, give
-current a shot (run sysupgrade -s).

All the best. Chris
