I’ve installed Parrot yesterday and having difficulties shutting it down. At first, every times I stopped the computer (shutdown or restart, from the GUI or command) the screen just freezes as it was and nothing happened. Then I found somewhere that I should update my Nvidia drivers, so I followed this tutorial.
After the reboot described in this doc, I wasn’t able to start parrot anymore, after the grub selection I was just seeing the loading screen, then a black screen with a white _ on the left top corner.
To fix this I had to add “acpi=off” to my grub boot command (then I persisted it in /etc/default/grub).
Now, I can start parrot and restart works like a charm, but I still can’t shutdown : now it seems to work at first, shows me the shutdown loading screen and freeze on that.
I was not able to execute the last part of the nvidia update doc thought, the command
optirun glxinfo | grep OpenGL returns me “[ 1008.591039] [ERROR]No bridge found. Try installing primus or virtualgl.” (So I’ll probably install one of those, but wanted someone opinion first).
I don’t know if what I’ve been doing is right, especially the acpi=off, it seems to work but I feel it’s strange to have to do that to be able to boot…
Another problem, may be related somehow, but when I press my physical power/shutdown button, the computer shutdown instantly (like really, it’s immediate), but from my Parrot config it supposed to shows me a prompt to choose what to do. Don’t know why, but really strange.
Thanks to anyone who read this till the end
