Debian Installation :: Onboard Graphics Card Setup - Full Hardware Acceleration Not Activated

Sep 5, 2015

I'm running hardware already considered legacy and I was made painfully aware that those drivers, for ATI cards, are only available from Jessie repositories; yet, somehow I was able to have my system configured to run not the stock drivers the system used for installation but, allegedly, proprietary drivers.

I did notice an overall improvement on how the system displays everything on the screen but after fumbling around the system trying to install a game I had a message warning that only software acceleration was activated and not full hardware acceleration, which was what I was aiming at.

After going through a lot of guides on the web I was able to:

a) discover the system is running MESA drivers (or so I have understood)
b) install headers for my system but somehow along the way I fumbled whatever I was doing and I probably now have a lot of loose ends in the system

Being Debian (and rock solid) the system is still running smoothly but I really want to clean up after myself and correct what I can and improve where is possible.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Increase Monitor Resolution Onboard Graphics Card?

Nov 22, 2010

I know there are many threads on similar issues but I can't find anything that will work. Not sure if I need drivers or what to do - I feel really stupid as I should be able to get this right but I am at a brick wall. Basically I have a 20inch monitor hooked up to the on-board graphics card and cannot get higher resolution than 900 x 600. It should be at 1280 by 1240. This is a brand new install with the latest Ubuntu 10. Under monitor preferences its says 'unknown' for monitor type and I don't have any driver disk for this screen but never needed one previously.

Fedora Hardware :: No 3D Acceleration On Intel Mobile 4 Series Graphics Card - 12

Apr 18, 2010

I'm a Fedora 12 user on an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. I'm currently using kernel 2.6.32.11-99.fc12.x86_64, graphics driver xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.9.1-1.fc12.x86_64, and mesa 7.7-4. My graphics card is an Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07).

I've been having some problems getting my 3D acceleration to work. Although it worked correctly in Fedora 11, I have not been able to get it to work yet in Fedora 12.

The output of glxinfo shows:

Running glxinfo with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose shows:

I found a similar message here: [url]

However, I'm not sure if this is the same problem I have. What does the drm_intel_bo_busy message mean?

Slackware :: 3D Acceleration With NVidia 8500GT PCI-E Graphics Card - Error: Couldn't Find RGB GLX Visual Or Fbconfig

Oct 20, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the 2.6.35.6 kernel that I have installed the most recent nvidia drivers for (as of yesterday or day before) 260.19.12. If I boot up into run level 4 after running nvidia-xconfig in a console and run glxinfo as root I get:

Quote:

bash-4.1# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

If I edit /etc/profile or /home/username/.bash_profile and add the following:

Quote:

export LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT=X

I have set both X=0 and X=1 as reported by [URL] I get the screen of information except it says

Quote:

direct rendering: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set)

my lspci -v for the graphics card looks like this:

05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8500 GT] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. Device 2353

[code]....

I am sure I missing something from my xorg.conf but at this point I am not sure what I have been searching on this for days to no avail. From the log the only thing that looks like is a problem is it doesn't load the keyboard and mouse but it gets loaded later on in the file.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Setup (10.10 / Win 7) And NVidia Graphics Card

Oct 11, 2010

I'm trying to setup a dual boot of windows 7 x64 and Ubuntu 10.10 i386. Before I got windows 7 and the new graphics card it ran 9.10 perfectly. If I take the card out (Nvidia 8800 Ultra), it will install fine but when I put the card back in, it crashes. It appears that it just doesn't like the card.

Debian :: Turn On Graphics Acceleration Again Without Having The Screen Flashing On And Off?

Dec 17, 2010

I initially installed Debian Lenny on my system but couldn't get sound to work so I upgraded to squeeze hoping that the newer kernel would somehow fix that. Unfortunately, the update caused the screen to flash on and off starting at the login screen - I'd get a split second with the screen on and then it would go off for a second or two. The boot screen still allows me to boot from Lenny's linux kernel, and that still works. I also had this problem when I installed ubuntu on this computer so after some searching around I remembered that adding radeon.modeset=0 as a boot option fixed this. Now the screen no longer flashes, but everything is really slow - I think that disabled graphics acceleration? After some searching around it seems that these problems are probably caused by something called KMS in newer linux kernels but I don't really know.

Anyway, does anyone have any ideas as to how I could turn on graphics acceleration again without having the screen flashing on and off? Or suggestions for making sound work? I think in the past (on ubuntu) I ended up having to enable the proprietary graphics driver, but on the other linux distros i've tried I used proprietary graphics and flash and my computer got slower and slower and started to crash, so I'd rather stick to the open source driver if possible - i don't need really need 3d acceleration. Stability is the reason I switched to debian. My computer is running Debian squeeze amd64, intel core 2 duo e8400, ati radeon 4830, 4 gigs of ram. relevant results from lspci: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV770 LE [Radeon HD 4800 Series] 01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio maybe part of the audio problem is that there are two audio devices listed?

Debian Hardware :: No Driver For Onboard Network Card - Asrock H97M ITx / AC

Sep 28, 2014

The ethernet adapter on my Asrock H97M ITx/AC motherboard isn't recognized during install. It's a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171 and none of the available options like alx or e1000e are working.

I originally tried to install openmediavault [URL] .... - which is based on debian - from an USB Stick and only came up tothe point where it tries to recognize the network card. It couldn't and promted me to choose one manually. So I checked the specs of my motherboard (a shiny new Asrock H97M ITx/AC with a Qualcomm Atheros AR8171) and after a short search I narrowed it down to alx or e1000e. Both of which only triggered a short flash of the interface and nothing more. I guess that's linux' way of sticking its tongue out at me.

For the last 2 days I therefore searched high and low and came across many possible solutions that either didn't work or included too much linux lingo that I couldn't understand it.

One solutions was to install a vanilla debian and then somehow install OMV over it, but debian itself couldn't recognize the network card either. So now I have a pretty minimal debian (CD1 install only) running but how to make it recognize and use the onboard network device.

Just out of curiosity, I plugged in an old hard drive with Win7 that hasn't been updated for at least 10 months. It only had a driver for AR8131 and warned me of using that, but it worked totally fine. Debian however doesn't even try to use an old driver but just flashes its interface at me.

Is there a way to make it work or is this board just not supported by debian and I have to resort to some other distro or a windows installation?

Debian Installation :: X Server Crashes On New Install On Intel I855 Graphics Card

Sep 13, 2010

I have just reinstalled testing on a Samsung Q30 and I cant get X to start. I am just left with a blank screen and ctrl+alt+Fn does nothing. I had a previous install of testing that worked fine but it might have been running a previous version of the kernel, or I had installed a bug fix to do with 915resoultion that I can't remember about. Booting off a Slax live cd works fine but I have had similar problems with Knoppix and Ubuntu.

I am running LXDE but I previously tried Gnome and had the same problem. Running xander displays cant open display Running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg returns nothing, as does Xfree86 -configure There is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf or installed by default, I have tried running startx with a custom xorg.conf and the automatically generated one from -configure. The automatic one did not include any resolutions and was configured for a dual head set up although there was only one monitor connected.

I thought it may be the same problem as this:[url]

But I have tried following the bug fixes on that site and I have had no luck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Supported Graphics Card For Dual Monitors Setup

Jan 31, 2011

I'm busy building a machine now and I'm looking to set up dual monitors because it's something I've always fancied but never had the resources to do. I'm basically looking for advice on choosing a graphics card that will support dual monitors with good driver support under Ubuntu. After a few hours of browsing the forums I determined nVidia were the way to go but I'm honestly not bothered if people want to suggest ATI. I'm not a gamer so really only need the card to support dual monitors. I'll also need to know how to set up the card under Ubuntu and then subsequently how to edit xorg.conf in order to get the dual monitors working.

Hardware :: Building A PC: Especially On Onboard Graphics Compatibility?

Feb 7, 2010

I'm planning on building a computer, to replace the ten-year-old workhorse I have at the moment. But I'm not all that knowledgeable about current hardware. The objectives are cheap and quiet. And of course everything needs to be Linux compatible.I have a few existing devices that I will want to use, and thus need support for. An IDE hard drive, IDE DVD Writer, PCI Wireless Adaptor, and PCI tv tuner card. The drives are the really important things, the PCI devices less so.

I'm in England, and I'm hoping to bring it in to a budget of �200-250.Usage is going to be web browsing including streaming media, watching video (though probably not HD),office work, maybe some light gaming, but probably the most demanding thing is GIS (Geographic Information Systems). I might want to try running stuff in virtual machines too.

For a processor, I'm thinking of an AMD Athlon II X3 435. Based on a magazine review, this seems to give the ideal price/performance ratio - anything more powerful means a bit of a jump in cost. Alternatively, I could go for a lower end processor and spend the money somewhere else instead. (More RAM is the obvious choice; would the ultra-cheap Sempron 140 and 4GB perhaps be better than the Athlon with 2GB?)

I want a motherboard with onboard graphics, and here's the first question: What's the Linux compatibility of onboard graphics like?. Most motherboards for AMD processors have ATI graphics, but there are some with nVidia chips. Which is better for Linux compatibility?

The second question: Is there much benefit buying any memory other than what's cheapest? I know there will be some performance differences, but are they worth worrying about in a budget machine? Also DDR2 is cheaper than DD3 now, but I expect in future that will reverse, so am I better off getting a motherboard that uses DDR3?

I've read that power supply quality is pretty important; an unreliable PSU can cause issues. And I'll also want to pay a bit extra to get something quiet, though I don't need fanless. Considering my choice of processor (TDP 95W) and other hardware (HDD, optical drive...that's about it), What power rating do you think I'll need?.

Ubuntu :: 3D Acceleration Does Not Work - Low Graphics Mode

Sep 4, 2010

For some reason after updating, somewhere my system is messed up where my 3d acceleration doesn't work. I found a workaround though, I can get it to work when I reboot, and manually select my OS at the grub2 menu by pressing enter. It doesn't work all the time this way, but most the time it does allow 3d acceleration to work almost normal. If I let the grub2 timer count down to auto select it will never be 3d accelerated, and prompts me it's going to run in low-graphics mode and I'm given an option to Restart X. Ok that's one part of it...

Now with my workaround say I got 3d acceleration to work, when I go to System > Preferences > Appearance : and for Visual Effects I select "Normal" (was on none). It will apply fine, until I reboot it gets set back to none. So I'm having to manually put everything back (graphics) every time I boot, this is a horrible bug. Then onto another aspect of this wonderful update. All my letters and numbers on the keyboard are normal, except when I use control and ALT, they don't seem to be mapped correctly because I can't use any of my Keyboard Shortcuts.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Triple Monitor Setup: X Crashes When Moving To The Second Graphics Card (third Monitor)

Oct 22, 2010

This is a triple-monitor setup with two video cards, where the mouse pointer gets "stuck" if it tries to cross from one video card to the next one. It worked correctly in openSUSE 11.2 and doesn't work in openSUSE 11.3 with the same xorg.conf. This is a 64-bit openSUSE 11.3 with xorg 7.5-11.3 (the openSUSE prepackaged version). I've already tried NVidia drivers 256.53-16.1 (the openSUSE NVidia repository version) and 260.19.12 (the latest off of the NVidia website).

This is the same xorg.conf that I used successfully in openSUSE 11.2. I tried a new automatically generated xorg.conf using nvidia-settings and it had the same problem. This forum won't let me upload the relevant files, but here: [URL] is a tar-ball with my xorg.conf, Xorg.*.log, /var/log/messages, and the NVidia debugging output.

Fedora Hardware :: Config For Mobo With Onboard Graphics - AGP - Iommu - Aperture Mem Hole - GA-MA785GT-UD3H

Oct 12, 2010

In understanding with Fedora logs are trying to tell me and if I need to adjust some settings on my system to address these issues.

The system motherboard (Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H) has onboard graphics. I understand that some of the system RAM is taken up by the graphics subsystem.

Very occasionally, I am seeing Nautilus and some other apps crash with SIGSEGV errors. Also, on the couple of occasions, parts of the display started going black - minimising and maximising the window redrew the area as before. This appears to be to do with memory access issues. I have already tested my RAM, applied the latest BIOS update on the mobo. I'm trying to understand if this is some sort of memory access violation that is resulting from the Linux kernel going off and accessing the wrong parts of the RAM and if there is a way to tell it that the graphics and system areas of the RAM are separate, through BIOS settings or kernel parameters and such?

Some questions:

1. Is my system using AGP? I don't think so. I understand AGP is on its way out. So what does the below log output mean wrt AGP?

2. Which part of the log is actually describing the memory assignment for the graphics memory?

3. Would it be of any use trying iommu=noaperture here? I am trying this out, but I don't understand if it is helping in anyway.

Have done a Google search and read on AGP, iommu, shared memory for graphics, but their interaction with each other at the hardware level and how Fedora is handling this is not sinking into my dull brain.

I have put up the system configuration, BIOS settings, logs etc for your perusal here [url]. Parts that caught my attention are highlighted.

Now, onto the bits that has my attention:

Code:

No AGP bridge found

Fedora Networking :: NAT Setup - Activated Eth0 Does Not Work

Mar 29, 2009

I've a desktop running Fedora 10 connected to the Internet via LAN. There's 3 network controllers in the desktop. One integrated to the motherboard and two additional. I would like to connect other computers (two laptops, one running fc9 and the other Window$ XP) to the Internet via the desktop. I googled the question and found out that I need to adjust thing called 'NAT'.

For that purpose I did the following:
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.168.2.0/24 -j SNAT --to-source 192.168.*.*
where 192.168.*.* - is desktop' IP address. I want to use 192.168.2.0/24 as a network for laptops. I activated one of devices (eth1), gave it IP address:
ifconfig eth1 192.168.2.0/24
and connected f9 laptop to it.

On the laptop I activated eth0 with the same IP. The problem is: it doesn't work. I can't ping anything from the laptop except its own address (192.168.2.0).
