Dropping to VESA

A poem about the frustration of having my computer screen drivers going south, then refusing to run properly in fall back mode. I figure if I'm going to go full nerd, I should go full nerd.

Black, purple, black, black, black, black,

Joy, Restart,

Grubbing around in grub, nomodeset,

Black, purple, black, black, sigh, 

Login screen! On wrong monitor,

Laptop still black, black, black.

Login, password, i3 starts up,

1/3 of screen missing, terminal starts.

xrandr, change resolution, black, black, black,

Joy, restart.

The End
