CentOS 5 :: Failed To Install Intel's Igb Driver And Can't Got VFs?
Apr 6, 2011
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 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
Built a machine w/ i5-4440 & gtx 960. I installed xserver-xorg-video-intel & xserver-xorg-video-nouveau. Xorg -configure fails, so I added xorg.conf I found online, makes no difference. xrandr can't open display. startx of course fails.
Backstory: My plan was to dual boot sid + stable as fallback with shared partition. First installed stable and whether connected to mobo or gfx card, I couldn't get login on tty, it would just hang on errors. So I installed sid (this time using lvm to hopefully make partitioning easier) and while I get the "failed to load nouveau" errors on mobo, gfx card gives me a login screen.
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
I am trying to use a rig with Gigabyte GA-880GA-UD3H mother board and Intel 82574L based NIC (EXPI9301CTBLK) under CentOS 5.5. Unfortunately I have issue with the NIC - during boot it fails to initialize:
I receive the same result with the original e1000e driver from the distribution, the latest elrepo driver and the latest driver from Intel site (as seen in the example). I have tried also 2.6.37 kernel version - with the same result. The adapter however works fine under Windows (MiniXP from Hiren's BootCD) and with Ubuntu 10.10 LiveCD.
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.
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 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:
I've installed 10.04 netbook on an old Fujitsu Amilo L1300 laptop, with an Intel i845 graphic card. As I know, it would run just OK with the 2.11.0 drivers, but i have no idea how to install that. I've downloaded the driver, and every package written on the page: [URL] At first I couldn't even ./configure the install, but now the configuration runs smoothly. However I cannot finish the make part, because it gives an error.
sentor@laptop:~/Documents/xf86-video-intel-2.11.0$ make make all-recursive make: Entering directory `/home/sentor/Documents/xf86-video-intel-2.11.0' Making all in uxa
I've been working on it for four days now, and as much as I'd love to continue it, I've run out of time.
Or if there's a way to use the 2.12.0 driver, then could somebody tell me how?
Just installed my first linux ever. The highest resolution I can get on my video card is 1024x768. I found out that I need to install iegd driver for my intell GM45 card. Can you tell me where I can download that driver and how I can install this?
Installing new Intel server S5000VSA (Sapello) motherboard with RAID 1. Downloaded F10 32 bit DVD and run install. Everything works fine and select Samba and all that. Install completes but on reboot get a blank screen.
I know with Windows one has to load the RAID driver off the Intel driver CD, so guess that is the problem. But how do I do this in Fedora? Question: How do I get to select the Intel RAID driver in the install process? There does not seem to be any place to stop and make this selection. I tried selecting the Red Hat and Suze installs on the Intel configuration assistant but it then reboots and that is it. In Windows it would ask to insert the Intel driver CD but that does not happen. So I am stuck. I loaded Fedora some 3 year ago and like it but then it was not on a RAID setup. I created a VMWare install on my desktop and did the same install options and it works. So the DVD seems fine.
not entirely sure if this is a hardware or a kernel/distro issue but here goes: when trying to install the driver for an Intel e100 (82557) NIC (on an IBM Thinkpad A20m) I get the following from both <make> and <make install>....
make -C /lib/modules/184.108.40.206/build SUBDIRS=/root/e100-3.5.17/src modules make: Entering directory /usr/src/linux-source-220.127.116.11 WARNING: Symbol version dump /usr/src/linux-source-18.104.22.168/Module.symvers is missing: modules will have no dependencies and modversions.scripts/Makefile.build:49 *** CFLAGS was changed in "/root/e100-3.5.17/src/Makefile". Fix it to use EXTRA CFLAGS. Stop.
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).
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.
My Broadcom STA wireless driver has failed to installed. The error report says that "PLEASE HAVE A LOOK AT THE LOG FILE FOR DETAILS: /var/log/jockey.log WHAT SHOULD BE DONE TO GET THE WIRELESS STA driver functional.? Gotta see it functiioning back!
I (somewhat foolishly) decided to reformat windows XP and make my foray in the Ubuntu world with Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid just last week. It has treated me fairly well so far and with the help of others posts have been able to get most everything setup to my liking. However...My Problem:I tried to install the ATI drivers for my radeon 9700 using ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.run. I tried to install it using the Ubuntu/9.04 settings, hoping that I could get it to work like that and I was quite wrong. When I restarted my computer I was started in simple graphics mode, and now I'm trying to set things right again.'ve un-installed the fglrx drivers (I think...) and now I'm stuck. Play On Linux tells me that I need to install 3D acceleration, something I know my graphics card has..
I've been trying to install 5.5 here for the past few days, first from USB and now from the CDs, with no success. The problem occurs when I reboot after installing. After the BIOS has done it's thing I'm faced with a blank screen with a blinking cursor at the top left of the screen.
Initially I assumed that this was due to the intel driver problem which is reported in the release notes as a known issue, and the PC I'm installing on has intel graphics. However I have now done a text install and still have the same issue. I'm able to boot up the system using the CentOS live CD, which encounters no issues, and it mounts the local system no problem. After unmounting and remounting to get write access I'm able to change the device entry in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to have the Option "DDC" "false" entry. I can also see that the runlevel is set to 3 in /etc/inittab, still I get the blank screen on attempting to boot.
Any ideas on what might be wrong here? It really sounds like the intel driver problem people have described, and yet I can't even boot in text mode so that doesn't seem to be the case here. Could there be something wrong with the bootloader?
I am attempting to install the Linuxant ALSA driver to make my sound work properly (speakers muting when headphones plugged in). This worked on Lucid, but on Maverick the installation fails at the "building modules" stage. It directs me to a logfile, which I have reproduced here:
tried to install drivers for FX 5500 today, the one that Ubuntu recommended (173) and the current version (260). Both installs failed when it tried to set up python-support. Returned an exit status of "10". I don't know what that means. I could really use some help, because I just installed UT2K4, and without the driver, I can't play it. I'm running the latest release, as noted in the thread title. Dunno if it helps, but it was a clean install, because an alternate iso upgrade failed and mucked up 10.04.
When I installed Arch Linux on my Toshiba L10 Intel Centrino laptop, it detected my video card and monitors correctly "out-of-the box". Now that I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat", it has not.
How can I configure Ubuntu to use the correct Intel drivers with my Intel 82852/855GM graphics card?
