How to force the VESA driver on
FIRST OFF: thank you to your forum for letting me actually join. The Arch forums wanted me to run something in arch, which oh DUH I NEED HELP TO GET RUNNING
Okay so anyway I have arch installed and I'm at the point where I need to add users. Before I did that I updated the system with pacman -Syy and pacman -Syu
Now my graphics drivers are installed
PROBLEM: EVERY distro does this to me. EVERY SINGLE ONE. They force the horrible open source graphics drivers on my and since I'm using an HDMI monitor I have my screen stretched.
I need to force the vesa drivers for now untill I can install Catalyst which won't be till I at least have xfce installed(which I'm forced to use because Catalyst doesn't work with gnome 3. Why are graphics drivers such a mess)
How do you force the Vesa drivers on
EDIT: I physically can't see anything on the left side of the screen, but using the VESA driver I was find for all of installation and even up to the point where I was going some things in arch
