Login loop after running hertg's eGPU switcher on Ubuntu 20.04 + Macbook Pro
I've been struggling with getting my eGPU to work on Linux for weeks. I think I'm close. My latest attempt has been to get it to work on Ubuntu 20.04.
My build for reference:
OS: Ubuntu 20.04
Rig: Macbook Pro Late 2019 15"
I use hertg's egpu-swticher script. When I boot with my eGPU connected, it seems to be recognized, but I can't login - I type my username and password, it loads for about a second, then goes back to the login screen. The external display doesn't show anything while on the login screen.
What's interesting is that, if I go to the terminal from the login screen, run sudo egpu-switcher switch internal, I can then login. I tried to run sudo egpu-switcher switch egpu after that. I get the following output:
But still nothing on my external screen. Anyone have any idea what this login loop might be related to, or how to solve it?
Thank you very much in advance!
