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 184.108.40.206-99.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?
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.
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?
Noob to Ubuntu here and I cannot access my wireless connection. It is working fine right now (wired) but I am using the TV stand as my computer desk right now so... not very practical. I tried following the "howto post a wireless issue (ticket)" but there was too much information for me to be able to put on here.
I have my SSID and my WEP. I am on Verizon DSL (only provider in my area). I tried using the wireless setting in network connections and I tried using DSL. I assumed that SSID+Password=Yay the internet works! but apparently not.
I have a problem with the latest Fedora. Installed it cleanly on a machine with Gigabyte H55M-S2 with Intel Core i3. There seems to be no sound and I checked to see if anything is muted but is not. The manual says that the sound chip is ALC888B so this could be the first problem. Any ide how I can make it work? Here is a dump of some things on my system.
Code: [weaz ~]$ lspci | grep Audio 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 06) [weaz ~]$ uname -a Linux EarthwormJim 220.127.116.11-48.fc14.i686 #1 SMP Fri Oct 22 15:34:36 UTC 2010 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I'm planning my next desktop build (currently only have a laptop that is falling apart), and one of the features I'm really looking forward to is multiple monitors. I'm thinking a 1920x1200 center monitor and two 1600x1200 on either side, but I'm not decided just yet. I don't know if I really need that resolution.
I have a few specific questions though. The only time I've ever messed with multiple monitors is way back when I had Windows, so I'm not sure what to expect on Ubuntu.
1: What is the best Graphics card brand/series to use? I've seen that ATI has more powerful hardware than nVidia for the same price range, but nVidia seems to support Linux better. I'm using an ATI card in my laptop now and have never had any problems with it (with either open source or proprietary drives, other than open source drivers didn't do well with 3d). I would also like these GPUs to be running F@H while I'm away, so GFLOPS is just important as gaming performance.
2: Since I want to use 3 monitors, I assume I should get 3 of the same graphics card or a card with 3 identical outputs (do those exist?).
Or can this be done some other way. For example, a more powerful card for the center monitor, and less powerful cards for the other two. Do those need to be the same brand, or could I use, for example, ATI and nVidia cards on the same desktop simultaneously?
3: Is it possible to have a virtual console on one monitor with a desktop on the other two, or do I need to set up a terminal on the desktop to use that monitor?
4: How can I run fullscreen SDL games with multiple monitors? Will it only show on one screen or stretch across them all? Is it possible to have a fullscreen game running on one monitor with the desktop visible on the others? How would the mouse focus work with that? Or does it just all depend on how I setup the monitors?
I have a fairly new laptop, 2*1.8 Ghz, but when I try to run games more advanced than pac-man, it's about 1-0.5 frames / second. This doesn't seem right. I've goggled it, and found a few posts from 2008-2009, but nothing that actually helped. Does anyone have any idea, as to what might be wrong? If anyone has this card, I'd like to see what you have in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file...
I'm having trouble getting X to work after switching from onboard intel video to a 5000 series ATI card. Apparently I need to switch to a MESA or fglrx driver. I did a sudo apt-get install fglrx-driver and it installed but still no X. I'm currently using Karmic. I've tried to boot with a live CD which works fine and changed the xorg file manual but that was a mess.
When I start I get a checking battery state ... done and it stays there forever sometimes and sometimes I can login but without x. Typing startx gives me a long list that says check the xorg website. I've been looking around for a way to fix this and haven't been able to get it working.
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 would like to know if I will be able to work on my laptop with 11.4 , someone knows if something changed with hang/freeze issues? Currently I have installed 11.1 but since repositories were removed no updates or new software for me so I'm considering installing something new.
Just spent about 4 hours upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 thinking it would fix my graphics problems. Basically I have no 3d acceleration of any kind, is there any way i can load the intel drivers? Because what I'm using now is really crappy.
Can i just change something in my xorg to intel and it will load that driver ? I've tried the "hardware drivers" thing but it does not show anything.
I have a Dell Dimension 3000 with an integrated Intel 865g graphics card that I am trying to use in X on Centos 5.4 i386. The "810" driver (what Centos configures by default) works, but will not display at 1600x900. Strangely enough, it will actually work at higher resolutions such as 1600x1200, but 1600x900 fails, even with 915resolution and 855resolution. The "intel" xorg driver (included with Centos) locks up the entire machine when starting X, so thats a no go as well.
The "fbdev" driver works but, once again, won't display 1600x900, because that resolution doesn't work properly with the version of the intelfb kernel module that Centos bundles. Fedora Core 12 works perfectly fine at 1600x900 on the machine. I think that if I could get a newer xorg installation (or perhaps just a driver) going under Centos, it might fix the problem. I couldn't find any 3rd party repos containing such packages. I'd really rather run Centos on the machine, due to the package stability (yes, I see the irony here).
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.
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 previously posted a thread http:[URL].. that was regarding gaming issue, but now i got a bigger issue. i installed Intel 2010Q2 graphics package from [URL].. i first upgraded xorg-x11-server and related packages and installed devel package using yum.. later i compiled and installed kernel 2.6.34 and other packages included on [URL].. i rebooted the system and it showed display driver unknown so, i used system-config-display --reconfig and it detects my mobile 4 intel chipset. and when i reboot, GUI won't load .. when services finish loading screen goes blank and harddisk light blinks at constant intervals and i can't switch from GUI to CUI either using CTRL + ALT + F2 etc [URL].. PS i am able to login into single user and change xorg.conf
Purchased a slightly used T61 Thinkpad via a client of ours at work last week. I've been really happy with it so far, dumped 4GB RAM in it and have Vmware workstation running on it and all is well except the graphics drivers.
According to LSPCI the machine contains the device listed below.
X displays just fine and compiz works out of the box, but I'm only getting around 59 FPS with GLXgears. I do like to play the occasional game and what not, so i'm really hoping to get this increased. I've heard of running Tremulous on this card, so I imagine it can do it.
! 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 (Intel� 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 22.214.171.124-0.5) 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 :
Code: X.org X Server 1.8.0 Release Date: 2010-04-02 [ 15.124] X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 [ 15.124] Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX [ 15.124] Current Operating System: Linux linux-7xhd 126.96.36.199-0.5-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2010-10-25 08:40:12 +0200 x86_64 [Code]....
I have Fedora 11. After my most recent update, I can't log in. Every time I authenticate, the logon window disappears, the screen goes black briefly, and then I am back at the log in window I entirely reinstalled, and then it worked, until I updated to the newest kernel then it didn't work anymore. Update: I now generated a xorg.conf with system-config-display --noui I manually removed and reinstalled xorg-x11-drv-intel with yum. It didn't work. By the way: now the start hangs on "Starting atd: OK" If I specify "vesa" in xorg.conf, then it gets past the point, but display doesn't load properly.
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
