I have a 12" AlBook from 2004. I know that there are no drivers to use the external monitor device properly, but I should be able to close the lid during startup to force an external monitor. However, when I close my lid on startup (right at the Linux bootloader), the monitor displays a white screen followed by a brief flash of text. Then, the text becomes garbled and the display goes back to my laptop with the lid closed. The text flashes so quickly that I can not read it. Afterward, the laptop boots normally and the screen on the external monitor doesn't change. What am I doing wrong?
