Fedora :: Unable To Use VMware With Intel Video Card (Enabling 3D)
Jul 4, 2010
For those who want use in VMware guest 3D games or any, using intel graphics... (who cant enable it ) You must enable S3TC texture compression even if your card can't enable it!The software you must use is DRICONF... You can Download it at the package manager...
I recently installed Fedora 12 and have tried it in different machines with different results. I am using HP laptops and can boot with no issues in one of them (HP NX7200), boot with compiz limitations in another (Compaq 6910p) and almost never get a proper boot on another (HP EliteBook 6930p). This last one is the one I want to check on, because even if I have got it to boot properly, most of the time it fails. I get to the login screen OK, but when trying to load the desktop, it usually fails and sends me back to the login screen. The driver in use is i915. I have tried to generate an Xorg.conf file and add a specific option, which I got from other people having the same issue. Here's the display section from my xorg.conf file:
Looking into the last few lines from my Xorg.0.log file, I could see segmentation faults and messages that showed how the server was killed and the system would drop it. ometimes I can get this machine to boot (in fact, I am typing these lines from it). To achieve that, I run
su -c system-config-display
on one of the other laptops that work. That allows me to boot fine at least initially. Every time I get that right, I get a kernel crash message, which reports the following:
------------[ cut here ]------------ WARNING: at drivers/pci/dmar.c:616 check_zero_address+0x7d/0x191() Hardware name: HP EliteBook 6930p Your BIOS is broken; DMAR reported at address zero!
If I reboot/shutdown, I won't be able to boot again until I repeat the same workaround.
i just install ubuntu 10.4 linux 32.bit on my Pc and it's was running fine beside the video card (intel x4500 ) not supported in ubuntu anyway after i update about 251 package in ubuntu ,i restarted the pc after in the grub ...they show me 4 Ubuntu ! 2 for boot ubuntu and 2 for ubuntu recovery and 1 for windows 7 loader !
i bought a new laptopt Gateway, core i3, intel video card. I've tested ubuntu and mandriva without good video results. I have installed Fedora 12, i'm using an external lcd samsung screen on the vga port, it works fine. My display properties shows two screen as well as the correct resolutions...the problem it that i can't use my latopt screen, i have tried different resolutions..but nothing. I can't use mi laptopt without an external screen.Even if i boot without my external screen, my laptopt screen goes black.
I am using a Dell Latitude E6510 with QM57/QS57 Intel GMA HD chipset video card, when I am installing the Fedora 14, if I choose the 'Install the new system or update an existing system', it goes to blank screen.if I choose the 'Install system with basic video driver', it starts to install.BUT I cannot use the desktop effects, the Stellarium, etc, it says that 'accelerated 3D graphics is not available'. Even I have updated my kernel to 220.127.116.11-91.fc14.i686. As far as I know, QM57 do support a 3D graphics, what should I do to drive it to work.
Lucid has been good to be so far, except for the fact that my screen flickers occasionally (I'd say once or twice every 30 minutes) I'm using an ASUS laptop with an INTEL GMA 4500MHD (It's this laptop. I read a bug report about the xserver-xorg-video-intel, but the issue was much more severe and marked as solved before Lucid was released.
Just installed Ubuntu 11.04, and everything is perfect, except my video card. Ubuntu 11.04 refuses to run my labtops integrated Intel 855GM video card in OpenGL hardware accelerated mode. Everything is really slow/unresponsive compared to earlier versions, windows are rendering painfully slow etc. From what I can gather, problem is, 11.04/newest Compiz is OpenGL 1.4, and my video card only supports 1.3 (?). Now, I have tried downgrading Compiz following this link: [url]
No luck so far.. OpenGL is still software only. Do I need to edit some ini-file or xorg.conf, or am I missing something here?
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 have a Sony Vaio vgn-sz440. Here is what the specs say about the video card.
I do not understand, do I have an Intel video card, or an Nvidia video card? Should I install the Nvidia video card driver, because every time I try, everything gets real glitchy and I revert back to my original setup.
I'm running Karmic Koala 64 bit on my Lenovo T400 laptop with switchable graphics having both Intel and ATI video cards. I've set my bios to use the intel card only and turned the automatic switching off. So far so good, but I'd like to turn on compiz for basic window animations. When I try to start compiz by selecting
doesn't show any new drivers that could be installed. This was working out of the box when I first installed Karmic Koala a few month ago, but things got messed up when I installed the restricted drivers for my ATI card. Now I can enable compiz if I switch to ATI from my bios settings and install the drivers but I don't want to use it due to high power consumption and I've removed the ATI drivers.
Here is my xorg.conf file:
Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection
Here goes the problem: I have a Amilo M7400 notebook with an Intel 82852/82855 GME video card, and X is a bit uncompatible with it.I've tried using the vesa driver in the xorg.conf, but when i start Xserver, it hangs hard in a blank screen. I can't open a new terminal and control+alt+backspace won't work.
what can i do? is there a log file for X which details the initialization of it?
I have a Phillips SAA7130 TV Tunner card and seems to have installed correctly. I have Xaw TV program on Ubuntu 10.10. I am unable to get the Video. I tried 3 players and in none I am able to see the video. The source in all programs says 'Default' and am unable to choose the card as source. I am also ok to allow remote login to check.
After a fresh install of Fedora 12 I'm delivered to the image on the attachment. Well aside from not being able to see icons on the left, or go to the any terminal and not seeing anything and be forced to blind type and hope for the best there are some other issues. Enabling panel transparency shows video artefacts on the panel.nouveau doesn't enable 3D(I use a NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB and my monitor is a ACER LCD X223W)) kind and point me to resources about the nouveau driver and how to configure it so it starts to work?
I have an IBM X3250 M3 server were Iam trying to install Fedora 9 version on RAID 1 and am unable to configure it. Some body guide me with LAN card driver for Inetl 8000 series Gigabit NIC card driver for fedora 9.
Using the video card Nvidia 7800GT on an AMD4200, MB T6100, I am unable to install from the iso, as progression is halted by a video mode that is unviewable. (black and white rows). I can get to the "f6" menu, however once I attempt an install it fails. My main goal is to install Mythbuntu, however the problem seems to be with the Unbuntu install drivers.This post worked to get around this on version 6.10, however these instructions no longer work. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=379807
Is there any way to use the newest Nvidia drivers that should work from a new install CD? I do not see a command line option, which would seem to allow me to install and update and setup the distro, THEN add my drivers before I run xconf.
I recently swapped out my old network switch (10/100) for a Netgear GS105 gigabit switch. With the exception of my Fedora 10 laptop all the rest successfully connect at gigabit speeds. But my laptop (with an Intel Corporation 82566MM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 03)) will only connect at 100Mbps. If I look in the logs for my network card here is what I get:
I have Dell 1537 laptop having Intel 5100 wireless card. It is not supported by Fedora 9. I have tried downloading the driver iwlwifi-5000-ucode-18.104.22.168.tgz from URL...Downloads and copied it to folder /lib/firmware and rebooted the machine. But still it is not detected by the system. Is there any solution to this problem .
I recently tried to install the proprietary nvidia driver to my laptop, but after disabling nouveau have run into a problem. When I start X I get an error
Code: (EE) No devices detected
Fatal server error: no screens found
I believe the computer is trying to use the on-chip intel card instead of the nvidia card because "dmesg | grep video" specifies "pci 00:02:0: Boot video device", "lspci | grep 00:02.0" gives me "VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
I have googled this issue all day and have not found a solution that works for me. nvidia-xconfig does nothing as doesn't "nvidia-xconfig --multigpus=on". Is there a way to specify which video card my laptop uses on boot? Maybe which my xorg.conf uses?
Actually I found a discussion on this topic. But my problem a bit different from the discussion made over there...The major discussion in that topic is related to the Graphics Issue. But my problem is with the CPU(as my machine says so).... I am posting my screenshot herewith. Please take some time to review it. This would be grateful.
Actually the error says: "This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU. but only detected i686 CPU. Unable to Boot - please use a kernel appropriate for ur CPU." What does this mean?? My machine has Intel Core 2 Duo t6600 processor. Is Virtualization Playing a role in this issue...??
I'm a Fedora 12 user on an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. I'm currently using kernel 22.214.171.124-99.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 an integrated intel video and latest xserver-xorg-video-intel driver(using only stable repo). Now I wanna watch high-res video. From the bits of info collected from all over internet I understood that I need to:
1.aptitude install libdrm libva.
2.compile or find the .deb mplayer-vaapi and install it.
3.add -vo vaapi -va vaapi to the mplayer command line in gnome-mplayer.
My question : is that correct or did I miss something? Do I have to compile latest libdrm and libva or the ones from the squeeze repo will be good? Do I need kms enabled, i.e. install firmware-linux-nonfree?
