Debian :: Can't Get High Resolution With Vesa Xorg Driver (Intel 82845)

Feb 20, 2011

With the upgrade to Squeeze and the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel, my Dell GX260's 82845 video chip suffers from the documented intel driver bug (freezes within a few minutes). I tried to fall back to the vesa driver, but am only able to get 640x480 resolution. The monitor is an LG L1720P.

I turned off kernel mode setting (via /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf), and modified xorg.conf -- added Modeline entries (from gtf) and
additional Mode lines to try to force resolution. Relevant portions of xorg.conf, dmesg and Xorg.0.log are shown below.

xorg.conf:

Slackware :: Xorg, Intel Video Card, And Vesa Driver / Xserver, Hangs Hard In A Blank Screen?

Jul 15, 2010

Here goes the problem: I have a Amilo M7400 notebook with an Intel 82852/82855 GME video card, and X is a bit uncompatible with it.I've tried using the vesa driver in the xorg.conf, but when i start Xserver, it hangs hard in a blank screen. I can't open a new terminal and control+alt+backspace won't work.

what can i do? is there a log file for X which details the initialization of it?

Ubuntu :: Change The Running Driver From Vesa To The Correct Intel Driver?

Oct 1, 2010

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Proprietary Nvidia Driver - High CPU Usage Xorg

Aug 7, 2015

I recently switched from jessie to stretch on both i encountered a jerky ui in gnome 3. after a longer research i noticed xorg consumes over 80% of my first cpu-core while moving a window. for testing purposes i switched back to the nouveau driver and there is no high cpu usage while moving a window, also the ui is smooth.

i tried 3 different nvidia driver: the one from the debian repository, the current stable and beta driver from the nvidia site. i noticed on all 3 the same problem.

Code: Select alldaniel@Daniel-PC:~$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Black Screen On Laptop's External Monitor When Specifying Vesa Driver In Xorg

Jan 16, 2010

I have an Asus z9100 laptop with an Intel 855GM integrated graphics chip, which is running Karmic (the purpose of the laptop is to be a MythTV frontend so my understanding is that it needs to run 9.x in order to connect to the MythTV 0.22 backend - I have installed and configured this using the installable Mythbuntu package) and the laptop is subject to this bug which causes random freezes:

[URL]

So, following advice for similar freezes I've seen, I have added the following options to my grub menu.lst on the kernel line:

nolapic nomodeset

and I have edited xorg.conf so that it makes use of the vesa driver instead of the Intel driver. This results in no freezes and if I wanted to watch Myth on the laptop screen I'd be squared away. However, the laptop has a damaged screen so the point was always to output the signal to an external monitor via its VGA out.

When I attach the external monitor and boot with the setup as described, the external monitor is never detected. But I noticed that if I remove the "nolapic nomodeset" from the kernel boot line, it is detected. However, signal is only output to it during the earliest part of boot (when the Ubuntu logo is in the center of the screen before the full-screen graphic with the animated progress line), after which the external monitor goes black and all the display output goes to the laptop screen. The external monitor power button is still lit up green as if it has been detected and is receiving signal, but it's just a black screen.

get the signal out to the external monitor after the initial part of the boot process, using the vesa driver? Here is the current state of my xorg.conf:

Code:
Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver "vesa"
EndSection

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Generic Vesa Driver Xorg.conf File That Will Work With Most Any 1024x768 Monitor

Feb 12, 2010

I am looking for a generic vesa driver xorg.conf file that will work with most any 1024x768 monitor.

This is for a network appliance and our field people have many different type of monitors.

This product will mostly be used "headless" but sometimes our field people will plug in a monitor.

The intel driver will not even start x without a monitor plugged in so I found it necessary to go to the vesa driver.

Debian Multimedia :: Native Screen Resolution With VESA?

How to enable native screen resolution in X using VESA driver? I have IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad T61 with a native screen resolution of 1680x1050, but I am getting 1024x768 instead.

This is a fresh install of Debian 8.3 (latest stable) (Jessie).

The root cause of this is that nouveau graphics driver (which I was using before) was causing me kernel crashes. Full story here: [URL] .....

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Beta Driver: Resolution Cannot Be Saved In Xorg File

Jan 31, 2011

I am using 10.10 64bit with a Nvidia GeForce Graphic Card on my Acer 5741G 434 Notebook.

I have always used Compiz and without it I can barely use my Notebook. Apparently I had to install the Nvidia accelerated 3d Drivers (current version) in order to use Compiz.

However I cannot enable the "normal" visual effects (right click on desktop / change bakcground/ visual effects) that are necessary for using compiz.

Also everytime I reboot my resolution goes back to 800x600 although I saved the resolution to 1366. So everytime I start my Notebook I have to go to the Nvidia X server settings and set the resolution to 1366.

What I tried until now:

- I tried to reinstall Ubuntu twice!

- I tried to unistall all nvidia Drivers and install through the terminal using the command "sh" the nvidia drivers i downloaded from their website

- I tried to use the nouveau open source driver

Additional Information:

- when I boot a logo of the nvidia BETA driver appears

- for the past couple days I even experienced another problem: the windows do not have the minimize/close and maximize buttons

I am even willing to install the System again!

I had nothing but problems with the latest 10.10 ubuntu distribiution.

Ubuntu Installation :: X201 Black Screen On Bootup With 10.04 RC (can't Get Intel Xorg Driver To Install)

Apr 27, 2010

Pretty much what the title says.. a few more details:

- I installed 10.04 using the alternative install so I've been doing all this in safe mode
- I installed a newer kernel (2.6.33) and still black screen
- I tried to install an updated Intel xorg driver, but I kept getting dependency errors (xorg, x11, something else)

I read another thread on this forum from a user who is using the same platform (Intel HM55), and I got stuck at the last point (can't get Intel xorg driver to install).

Debian Multimedia :: Audio Crackling On High Volumes With ALSA On Intel ICH7

Aug 23, 2015

I'm having some issues with audio crackling/buzzing when turning up the volume, or on songs that have overclipped / overdriven parts, which doesn't happen on Windows (on it those sections are just "dampened"). Is there some certain settings in ALSA that are used to deal with this? Or is it something specific to the driver for the hardware? Speaking of which I'm using some integrated audio which goes by the name of Intel ICH7, and the chip itself is Analog Devices AD1981B.

I'm only using ALSA, without PulseAudio, and I've made sure the volumes both in the media players and under alsamixer aren't turned too high (PCM is at 47% and "Headphones" -- what is "Master" on Windows and on other soundcards under Linux -- is on 22%), so it isn't an issue with the software mixer being turned up too high. Also I'm using a pair of quality headphones (Sony MDRV55) so it's not an issue with the analog audio output either. I've also tried multiple other headphones and the result is the same.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Crashes With Intel 82845G

I've freshly installed Debian Lenny 5.03 with xfce from cd, but I'm having intermittent problems with X. Mostly X will startup fine, but occasionally it crashes. If I'm lucky, it will just shutdown and just return me to the text-mode login. But if I'm unlucky, it freezes completely, such that even the alt-SysRq key combos won't work.

The PC I'm using is a Dell Celeron 1.8Ghz, with

Debian Configuration :: Xorg Affects Console Resolution?

Nov 2, 2010

I've been scouring the internet for an answer to this problem. I am using Squeeze and have properly configured Grub2 to set my console screen resolution to 1024x768x32 (as per updating /etc/default/grub to contain 'GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768x32' and updating /etc/grub.d/00_header to contain 'set gfxpayload=keep') and everything works wonderfully. My resolution is set as it should be. However upon installing Xorg (aptitude install xorg ratpoison), my console resolution gets changed to what appears to be 1280x1024.

I thought that this was due to xrandr, however when I issue:

# xrandr -s 1024x768

only the X resolution is changed. When I then CTRL-ALT-F1 back to the console, the resolution is still at 1280x1024 (I am aware that xrandr only affects X, but I assumed that because my console resolution was correct before installing X there might have been some correlation).

I would like for my console resolution to stay at 1024x768 as per Grub2's configuration and for X's resolution to be at 1280x1024.

PS I also noticed that prior to installing Xorg, my CPU boots up without any screen blanking (only for a second or so). However, after installing Xorg, during the boot process the screen does blank briefly. It is at that time that the resolution gets changed to the 1280x1024 setting.

Debian Multimedia :: Xorg Not Showing (1024x768) Resolution Of Computer

May 3, 2015

I'm now working to install Debian 8 on another computer since yesterday. Another Linux, and as always, endless list of problems.

- A computer that was freezing at every installation attempt (but never at the same moment) during installation when the Broacom cardbus adapter was connected (it's a chance that it is easy to remove and I found it quickly... and it is working once installation is finished)

- Turning to sleep mode after 15 seconds if I don't quickly try to login

- BOINC receive no work

- Tray icons are here but invisible - no icons, just gray space

- xserver-xorg-video-savage is installed, but I have resolution problems, and weird glittering horizontal lines when the computer is working (as on my other PC with the SiS video card).

On Debian 7.8, it was working fine for having the 1024x768 native resolution of this laptop screen.

But, with debian 8, the max resolution is now "800x600" and with this screen, there is no smooth effect : the image is a disaster.

Here is "lspci -nn" :

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: VIA Technologies, Inc. P/KN266 Host Bridge [1106:3156]
00:01.0 PCI bridge [0604]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8633 [Apollo Pro266 AGP] [1106:b091]
00:0a.0 CardBus bridge [0607]: O2 Micro, Inc. OZ601/6912/711E0 CardBus/SmartCardBus Controller [1217:6972]
00:0c.0 FireWire (IEEE 1394) [0c00]: Texas Instruments TSB43AB21 IEEE-1394a-2000 Controller (PHY/Link) [104c:8026]
00:10.0 USB controller [0c03]: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT82xxxxx UHCI USB 1.1 Controller [1106:3038] (rev 80)

[Code] ....

How to confirm that my Video card is included into xserver-xorg-video-savage package ? How do I know if the driver is loaded ? How to modify xorg confifugration files in this modern flavour of Linux in order to force adding the 1024x768 resolution ? I already succeed into /etc/default/grub and "update-grub" for the bootloader screen but I want it too in the desktop environment.

Debian Hardware :: Sun Ultra 2 Xorg Configuration - Only Resolution Available Is 1152x900

Jul 6, 2011

I have setup a Sun Ultra 2 with Debian 6. It currently has dual 200MHz sparc I CPUs, 512MB RAM, and a Creator 3D 15MB video card. I have in the mail on its way to me dual 300MHz sparc II CPUs and enough RAM to max this thing out at 2GB. Anyway, I am currently having an issue configuring xorg.conf. The only resolution available to me is 1152x900 (which isnt even a supported resolution by my monitor), but Id like to use 1280x1024. I have tried for probably over a week now to no avail. I will paste my current xorg.conf file (the relevant parts), and please keep in mind that I have been messing with this file for a while so sorry if it looks bad.

Ubuntu :: Get Xubuntu To Boot With Glint Video Driver Instead Of Vesa?

Jun 13, 2010

Does anyone know how I can get xubuntu to boot up using the glint video driver instead of vesa? I am trying to get it loaded on an older machine and a previous version of ubuntu worked using the glint driver but the latest version of xubuntu (10.04) is using the vesa driver. Which is not working for me. I have tried ubuntu, xubuntu and lubuntu all version 10.04 and neither of them has worked. They all boot up into a terminal window (no GUI).

I tried creating an xorg.conf file and added a line specifying the glint driver. After doing that and trying to startxfce4 I get an error saying that it cannot load the glint module. Unfortunately that machine has no internet connection either. I guess it hasn't recognized my wireless card either.
