My attempts at installing with full disk encryption all failed at boot
time (same effect: blank screen after the loading kernel message).
I then tried an installation without FDE. Again the blank screen, but
eventually a lightdm appeared (I chose XFCE at installation time).
This made me realize: the FDE installation probably worked fine, too,
it's just that where I was seeing a blank screen, the system was
prompting me for a password to decrypt the drive.
Can anyone advise me on how to fix this, ie get the console video on the
LCD back during early boot? I'm sure there is a simple solution, but I'm
not familiar enough with non-GRUB systems.
I tried adding the above two modules to /etc/modules (including
update-initramfs -u), but that didn't solve the problem, unfortunately.
