OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 To 11.2 - Update Or New Installation With Intel 915 Graphic?
Apr 14, 2010
I should install a new openSuse 11.2 or if I should make an Update-Installation from DVD (see openSUSE 11.2 Installation Quick Start Installation Mode: Select Mode - New Installation / Update / [...]) or an Update Installation via Yast.Now I am using openSuse 11.1 and Gnome 2.24.1 (mostly, 1 account is using KDE) and Kernel Linux 22.214.171.124-01.1-pae. "/home" is on an separated partition (as part of an extended partition).
Contra new installation?:
- I have an Laptop (Samsung x20) with integrated intel 915 graphic and an very hight resolution (1400x1050). The monitor's resolution is not listed in the bios of the graphic cart/solution. Because of that I had many problems with my fist installation of suse/openSuse linux.
- Will I have problems to keep my old accounts?
Pro new installation?:
- Sometimes funny system reports (mostly about ICE).
- I have been logged in as root in Gnome (as I had some problems with (no) audio, the digital optical audio out is still not running).
- I think the fist installation was a few years ago maybe I had been to often "bold".
I own a MB with H55 Chipset and a Core i3 540 with openSuse 11.2.I tried kernel 2.6.32 and 2.6.34 and the newest Xorg delete the xorg.conf and got a fine picture on the screen (same with xorg.conf and device "intel") Even HD MKV is possible. But in KDE I can only open one programm. If I try to open a second programm the desktop disappear and I get the KDM screen and have to login again and the former started programm is gone. Only if I start the programms via an open Terminal window the programms will run. I tried to delete all .kde(x) directories, but it�s the same after restart.Only if I use driver "fbdev" in the xorg.conf I get no problem. But then the screen is very slow.
Having trouble with video and windows/links/applications etc on 10.10, just came from windows 7 with everything fine. had 10.04 on my desktop with nvidia card, was easy to get that driver installed, but intel i cant find the correct information. on a laptop, compaq presario cq56. can anyone help out?
So I finally got ubuntu..I wanted to play team fortress 2.Runs great in wine etc.But 1 problem.It keeps saying my graphic card is outdated.I cant see anything.So I downloaded the driver from nvidia website.Followed some instructions.But it says cannot open binary file or something.Is there any other way to update graphic drivers.Cause I realy still want to play some windows games.Mount&blade, Atlantica online,team fortress 2 etc
I've got a problem to use intel graphic card and kde. When I enable opengl support it seems threa re refresh problems, botton now are visible, now not, it seems a blinking effect and when I move the pointer it seems kde try to re-draw the object but the object get invisible, so a relay mess. Xrender instead work but it's slow. Whit opensuse 11.2 all was ok. glxgears however shows me pretty good performance so I don't understand where is the problem.
...xorg-x11-driver-video from 7.4-19.5.1 (i586) back to 7.4-19.4 (i586). Before that (and seems after a fatal upgrade of my graphic driver) I could only start the graphic surface (sax2?/xorg?) in the save modus of suse 11.1. helps others (with intel onboard graphic controller in their notebook) also.
i justy got me a dedi box and there is no graphic driver installed on it, or it dont work :/ VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8375 [ProSavage8 KM266/KL266] but wen i try installing enemy territory it comes back with error on graphic card
I'm trying to set up an HP DisplayLink USB graphic adapter on Debian 6 to be paired with the notebook's integrated Intel i915 video card. I use a custom 3.11.1 kernel in which the options for VGA arbitration, fbdev framebuffer and DisplayLink driver are enabled as built-in, not as modules.
The device works and I'm able to correctly run an X session on a DVI monitor connected to my notebook thru this USB graphic adapter. However, I'm still not able to use both the DisplayLink device and the integrated Intel i915 at the same time under X, with the purpose to extend the desktop area over the two screens, side by side.
During a boot, if the DisplayLink adapter is detected over the USB cable, the X-server's Intel driver is repudiated as shown in the logs below, and the main notebook's screen stops working with X. (nonetheless, it still functions on the "Alt-F1" text terminal).
Relevant portion of /var/log/Xorg.0.log In particular, it shows: [ 2509.084] (II) UnloadModule: "intel" Code: Select all[ 2509.061] (II) FBDEV: driver for framebuffer: fbdev [ 2509.061] (II) intel: Driver for Intel Integrated Graphics Chipsets: i810, i810-dc100, i810e, i815, i830M, 845G, 854, 852GM/855GM, 865G, 915G, E7221 (i915), 915GM, 945G, 945GM, 945GME, Pineview GM, Pineview G,
In case it is required, this is the relevant excerpt of my xorg.conf. In my full xorg.conf file installed locally, no other options deal with graphics or screens.
Code: Select all# All down here is required for DisplayLink # Depth must be 16 bits for all the screens to support DisplayLink Section "Device" Identifier "IntelVideo" Driver "intel" EndSection
I'm trying to make things work on my laptop. Almost done, but there is one hardware issue left. I have a Intel HD4400 graphic card. But it seems that it is not recognized. I had an issue loading Gnome3.
Code: Select allGNOME 3 Failed to Load
Unfortunately GNOME 3 failed to start properly and started in the fallback mode.
This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not capable of delivering the full GNOME 3 experience
Another thing : Code: Select all$ grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log [ 29.117] (EE) FBDEV(0): FBIOPUTCMAP: Invalid argument
Also, if I go in "applications" ->"system tools" -> "Preferences" -> "System settings" and then in "Details, under Graphics I have "Drivers : unknown", "Experience : Fallback".
And as a consequence, I can't use dual-screen. If I plug another sreen, I have an exact copy, not even with a good resolution.
I search on the web for solutions, but I didn't understand much. I don't know what Xorg is, x-window, etc...
I'm about to buy a laptop and there are some interesting and affordable Toshiba ones, but they all have Intel GMA 4500M graphic card. I have NVIDIA card on my desktop and their drivers work perfectly, i was just wandering what the situation with Intel's graphic cards is. I need 3D rendering for compiz and stuff, is it too much of a hassle to enable them?
I had an old thinkpad x61s laptop running ubuntu 10.10 with an intel gm965 graphics card. When i checked the monitor today it says the refreshing rate is 50hz and there is no other option available. I vaguely remember it used to be working at 60hz when I was running xp, so I googled and searched the forum for answers but came with no luck. Some people reported a similar problem with their nvidia graphic card and they seems to be able to modify a xorg.conf file to manually solve the issue (sadly I don't know how).
I installed openSuse 11.2 64bit (DVD version). Later I installed the graphic card driver. Then I noticed that it's not working well due to an improper installation (didn't use the manual that you provided here). So I uninstalled the driver. Then, after reboot, instead of a regular desktop, I get a CLI and I'm requested to enter my login information. But in the boot menu, if I enter to the failsafe option, then everything works fine. How can I change the CLI to the regular desktop?
I think i found out what was crashing my computer my Graphic card every time i start a game the computer goes down. I have a Ati Radeon 5570. Desktop Effects: Disabled System Info: 2d: fglrx 3d: ati I downloaded the Ati Drivers from the website after installing the Open Source not sure if that is causing a problem. Here are the steps i took. su - UNSUPPORTED="yes" sh ./ati-driver-installer-11-2-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg SuSE/SUSE-autodetection zypper in fglrx* aticonfig --initial reboot It will crash whenever i start a game and randomly when i run ..... VLC etc.. Edit: Should i uninstall all opensource/ati and start over and if thats the case whats the best approach to this?
I'm having problems installing 10.04 on a IBM Thinkpad R51. It boots fine, loads the graphics... saying "UBUNTU", and below are some dots red/white moving... then it all goes BLANK... silent.. nothing happens (probably waiting for user imput?)
I've tried getting out of "normal" install by hitting ESC key, and selecting noapic and noa..p..l something?
In Fedora 10, I cannot get to the installer because it shows these messed up strips graphics (its not due to my graphic card, my graphic card is supported 7600gt) in non-quiet install it shows logical errors and i/o errors.
I am new to Suse Linux. So please excuse me for this "funny" query. have read the threads: Configuring graphics cards in openSUSE 11.3
From here I went to this page: SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE Its mentioned on this page that: Upon installing openSUSE, the X system's automatic configuration may have failed to properly configure the graphics correctly. Typically this results in either a black screen upon reboot, or the wrong resolution being displayed on the monitor.
I have none of these problems. But after searching for inability of desktop effects to become activated, I found that nVIDIA graphic card drivers are must for these effects. After clicking "My computer" icon on desktop, I found Display Info as following:
Vendor: nVidia Corporation Model: G98 [GeForce 8400 GS] 2D driver: nouveau 3D driver: nouveau Gallium (7.8.2)
Can anyone tell me 'Is nouveau an alternative for nVIDIA'? Is this the reason for no wrong resolution or black screen upon boot. That means my computer graphics are working correctly. Then why does Desktop Effects are not getting enabled.
After searching for Kaffeine media player extra codecs to play media files, I incidentally found the following options: I opened Yast Control Center @ linux-o26a Software> Add on Products > installed Add-On Products > Community Repositories > clicking Next, this opened a window with "List of Online repositories" where there is an option of "NVIDIA Repository". If I install it, will it enable the "Desktop effects"

I cannot install 11.3 on a machine with an intel raid controller I have tried with raid 1 using the card and then setting the disks to individual raid 0 and letting suse raid them. With the card doing it the machines crashes as soon as it tries to boot the first time, with suse doing the raid I just get 'GRUB' on the screen It seems a lot of people are having similar problems, does any one have any pointers. 11.2 installs fine. I would try and do a bug report but every time I go to the page it's in Czech
i am a new opensuse user from vietnam. I installed opensuse 11.3 last week, and i have a serious problem with repo. I can't enter it . It's mean i can't update (by update applet), install codec, new software, .
