Hardware :: Intel Driver For Using Graphics Acceleration?
Jan 11, 2011
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?
When I was 12 fedora with graphics acceleration worked well and without problems but now I installed fedora 13 dvd compatible with everything when I installed it and no problem only in go to System> Preferences> Desktop Effects I came with a message.
3D graphics acceleration not available. Desktop effects require hardware support for 3D. I was surprised what I came out.
And try to end with the console
But most disappointing is that I do not use Nvidia, ATi, Intel only: / will get more info put this command and I miss it.
I'm a Fedora 12 user on an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. I'm currently using kernel 188.8.131.52-99.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?
I have a nvidia Geforce 8500 on my 10.04 system - the driver I'm using is: NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) [Recommended]. When I look at System/Preferences/Monitors I am asked if I want to use the vendor's graphics tool and up pops the NVIDIA X Server Settings window. How do I enable 3D acceleration?
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
My lap has a "Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)" video card, and never took the 1280x800 resolution (that I had on windows). I searched a lot, and I installed a driver from the package manager (can't remember the name ...). Well, restart, and it's stuck at the finish of fedora loading process (a blank line). I can access to the terminal (ctrl + alt + f2) and modify kernel parameters. By the way, on gnome I could't enter to "Desktop Effects" (it threw an message like "can't enter 3D Acceleration")
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
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'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intelï¿½ 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...
I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...
I've installed Suse linux 11.3 (kernel 184.108.40.206-0.5) on my brand new computer HP all in one 5130. Everything worked incredibly well : Wifi, wireless keyboard and mouse, sound, webcam.. There is only one remaining issue : I get a very poor resolution (1280x1024) instead of the 1920x1080 allowed by the screen. The graphic card is an intel chipset (HD graphics) integrated to an intel core i3 CPU. Here is (part of) the X11.org log :

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.
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?
Running Squeeze, with kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64. I do not find out how to enable 3d acceleration with my Intel 945 embedded graphics card. Also having very (i mean VERY) slow scrolling in some webpages (such as apple website, or danielestulin.com website). I tested the following "Hardware Acceleration Stress Test" with Epiphany, Iceweasel and Firefox, and the best rate I get is only 3 fps...[URL].. I tested the Chess game included with default Squeeze install, running in 3d mode, and definetely there is no acceleration at all...
Here's my glxinfo output: name of display: :0.0 display: :0 screen: 0 direct rendering: Yes server glx vendor string: SGI server glx version string: 1.2 server glx extensions:
I'm trying to get full 3D acceleration working with an Intel 82865G Integrated Graphics chipset on my Arch install. I'm wondering if it's possible to get it to work with xf86-video-intel, as I can't seem to get the Intel-provided drivers to compile. As also stated, I have to xorg.conf to speak of, so I can't exactly go in and simple edit lines, unless I wrote it from scratch, which I'd really rather not do, LOL. I've tried Google (including their special Linux search mode), and LQ Search, and I can't seem to find information that's relevant enough to me that I can use. Here's glxinfo (only the (hopefully) relevant portions):
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.
I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the 18.104.22.168 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:
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:
I have set both X=0 and X=1 as reported by [URL] I get the screen of information except it says
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 Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16
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.
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 have a AGP Radeon HD3650 RV635. I've tried using the ATI Catalyst 9.12 drivers, and they work ok with 2D/3D DECCELERATION. 3D works but it's extremely slow, maximizing a window takes 10secs, videos skip when played in fullscreen. Disabling Compiz doesn't help much, in 2D mode, windows redraw slowly.
I'm trying to install the open radeonhd drivers, and so far, it's booting into gnome, but it's barely usable. There is no 2D acceleration (log says ShadowFB only) and glxinfo reports:
Code: name of display: :0.0 X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation) Major opcode of failed request: 135 (GLX) Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
