i upgrade a machine running centos 5.4 to 5.5 this morning. After the update the X start i saw the pointer and a black backgroud only the desktop doesn't appear.The machine is a barebone with this configuration
i am using fedora 14. i need graphics driver for Intel 82579v . while moving folders it shows poor graphics.Login screen open as step by step. while playing videos ,it hang.my system is very slow now with high configuration. My system hang while improve graphics option in System-> Preference->Desktop Effects and select compiz and
what all graphics functionality does Intel's i915 graphics driver support?( blending,blitting ).By looking at the source code it appears to me that it support just 'fill rectangle' and 'image blitting'.Is that all?
I want to downgrade my Intel driver to version 2.11.0. I don't know what version I have at the moment but I have installed Fedora 15 (Lovelock). The reason is that Office 2007 has graphical bugs with Intel drivers that are newer than 2.11. So, will my gnome shell work fine after the downgrade and how to downgrade? I have searched a lot from google but didn't find any solutions.
My system occasionally, not often, but enough to bring me to do something about it, keeps freezing. Hard lock-ups. This is a known bug for openSUSE 11.3 and intel video cards. So, I tried some suggestions and updated my kernel to 2.6.35. Nope. Same prob. I updated Xorg, mesa, drm, cairo (had to go to Factory for that one). I finally got all the requirements met as listed on Intel Linux Graphics: 2010Q2 and I download the intel 2d driver, since it's newer than what comes with openSUSE, even in Factory (xorg-x11-driver-video-intel-legacy 2.9.1).Now, when I go to compile the driver, it errors out on ./configure.how do I let this intel driver package know where xorg-server is?
I've been using Mandriva (and predecessors) for ten years or so, but that distro really seems to be dying at the moment. Consequently, I am trying to move over my various PCs to SUSE. I've started with my EEEPC 901 which has a 945GME integrated graphics chip. Using Mandriva 2010.2 it works fine and I can have desktop effects (built into KDE) running with no problems. However, with KDE on openSUSE 11.4 I get irregular freezes, although I can still work within the focussed window. Moving around though, clicking on other parts of the desktop etc. doesn't work, then after a few seconds they all happen at once. I am getting the following error multiple times in the X log, which I suspect is associated:
Code: EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.
I note this supposedly fixed bug report that may be relevant:[URL].. Secondly, I am getting hopeless 3D speed (glxinfo reports SGI and has all expected output). Desktop effects won't work at all, on boot it pops up a message saying they are disabled as too slow. I know it isn't a benchmark, but glxgears gives about 50, it used to give over 500. I remember a few X versions back having to enable UXA mode instead of EXA in the 'intel' driver, but presumably that is no longer needed and I cannot see any effect of doing that now (in the xorg.conf.d device file). According to the X log, X is definitely using 'intel' driver, not fb etc.
I am running Opensuse 11.4 on a file server, based on an Intel Atom motherboard with 945G graphics chipset.I recently shut down and then rebooted the server (because I needed to switch off the power for a few minutes) after it had had been running quite happily for several weeks since the last boot. Now I cannot start X - it gives up after the line(EE) intel(0): failed to set mode: Invalid argumentI've tried googling but am none the wiser what could have caused this, or how to fix it. Excerpts from the X log file:
My computer is Compaq Presario CQ61-110ED notebook pc Mijn videocard is:Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Where can I download a driver for Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD by the Ubuntu 32/64 bits, version 9.10?
I have installed xubuntu 10.04 on a HP Pavilion dv1049ea and am having trouble installing the drivers for the graphics card. When installing i had to use the boot option -xforcevesa in order to get the screen working. Now that it is installed there is constant screen flicker but apart from that all other aspects of the system are working fine. In the display menu i am unable to change the refresh rate. How do i change the running driver from vesa to the correct intel driver? The graphics card is an Intel Graphics 82852/82855.
I've a Centos 5.1 server on S5000vsa Intel board with 6 bay HD in raid 1 mode (2 HD), and working fine until I've decide to make a yum update. Today the Centos is 5.4 but seems necesssary to upgrade the megasr driver for the raid function (i.e. , is not possible to contact the raid firmware trought Web Console 2). I've download the last megasr driver from Intel and I follow the instruction to upgrade the driver with s.o. installed, but when I start the server and choose via grub the new img boot file, the display show :
megasr.ko invalid module format -1 and stop. The linux version is the same in the machine (uname -a) and from the driver (2.6.18-164.9.1.el5). Another question : in Intel instruction spoken about megasr.o , but on img file I found a megasr.ko . I think instructions referre to old linux 2.4
in order to using the SR-IOV, according the guide HOW_SRIOV [Moderator edit: fixed link.]but i can't got the VFs.so i try to compile the driver :igb-2.4.13 and igbvf1.0.7.but i failed to install them.when i make install the igb-2.4.13 i got the errormsg:root@localhost src]# make installakefile:106: *** Linux kernel source not configured - missing version header file‚[root@localhost src]# i alreadly installed the kernel-headers-2.6.18-194.32.1.el5.x86_64.rpm .some system info maybe needed:Information for general problems.

I have just had to install CentOS 5.6 on a family members computer, as they lost there Windows XP key. Anyway, I am needing to install a new nvidia graphics driver. I found a howto on this forum for 5.2 [URL]
I had a problem with my laptop which is dell studio 1569 wireless card is as shown above intel centrino advanced n-6200. I had ubuntu before and it worked very well but with centos and oracle enterprise linux (not unbreakable) it does not work at all? And also the graphics card not fully configured I knew that when I tried an opengl apps?
Unfortunately I've had no luck with using the default intel driver. It's strange really, you can see the gnome screen for a split second then it turns the display off like it's activating the external monitor or something. If I change the driver to vesa everything is fine.
I'm trying to compile a correct driver module for my graphics adapter "Nvidia Riva TNT2 M64". I visited the website "http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_archive.html" and I downloaded the file "NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.13-pkg1.run".to start installation I used the following commands:/sbin/init 3 --> to close the X rversh ~/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-71.86.13-pkg1.run
Perhaps someone has run across this problem I loaded CentOS 5.3 on an AOpen MP45-BDR workstation. It uses the Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset for the video graphics. It is officially identified as: GM45 chipset (Intel GMA X4500 MHD).
There are two problems. Using the "intel" video driver, the X11 server does not appear to support digital video cable (DVI interface). It is also stuck in 1024x768 resolution and I want it to display in 1280x1024 resolution. Using a DVI cable, the system boots and displays properly (GRUB and boot messages) until the X11 server starts, then the signal is lost. The system is configured with a dual boot (Windows XP Pro) and Windows operates properly and supports all of the features of the video graphics chipset (DVI and full resolution). So the hardware is ok.
The "intel" video driver has a description of "Experimental ..." so maybe there is an update to this driver or a replacement driver that supports this chipset. I checked the buglist and found CentOS bug ID 2951 which is somewhat similar. The user was utilizing the "intel" video driver and it locked his system but changing the driver to i810 was a work-around. My system does not lock. I did try the i810 video driver but the X server did not like it - it would not start. This makes sense since the description of this driver specifies support for the older Intel onboard chipsets.
I am attempting to load CentOS 5 on an Acer 6900 desktop and I'm not even getting out of the starting gate. I am familiar with using linux but not the install procedure which is why I am beginning to dive into this. However, when I bring the system up off the Linux boot disk and go to install it's not even giving me the option of the controller so I can begin installing the os from the dvd-rom. This is what acer lists as the controller for the 6900: ich8 serial ata storage controller 2820 linux driver. I cannot find this driver for linux anywhere.
I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.
I recently upgraded to Lucid and am having difficulty finding and installing the ATI graphics driver for my machine. When I open Administration > Hardware Drivers, the list is completely empty. I've searched the forums but haven't found a way to get the driver installed. My graphics card is an ATI Radeon X1200 series, and my computer is a Toshiba Satellite A215-S5818.
I have an IBM X3250 M3 server were Iam trying to install Fedora 9 version on RAID 1 and am unable to configure it. Some body guide me with LAN card driver for Inetl 8000 series Gigabit NIC card driver for fedora 9.
I've been using it since it was put on current and have been having X crash on me repeatedly or getting a black screen from which I can only recover by a hard reboot. This is happening under a couple of different WMs without compositing (so this isn't the same issue that I was having with KDE and xscreensaver).
I'm using the i915 driver with stock 188.8.131.52, but I also tried a 184.108.40.206 kernel but had the same problem with both.
I upgraded to -current last night hoping to improve my Intel 845G graphics controllers functioning in X, I've had to use the vesa driver for stability. The upgrade was completed but KDE seems as slow as ever. Here's some snippets from Xorg.0.log:
X.Org X Server 1.7.5 Release Date: 2010-02-16 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Slackware 13.1 Slackware Linux Project Current Operating System: Linux speedy 2.6.33-smp #2 SMP Sat Feb 27 20:12:16 CST 2010 i686 code....
It seems I'm still using the vesa driver, any ideas on why the intel isn't being used and how to fix it?
