Ubuntu Installation :: How Do I Find Out Details About Graphics Chip

Apr 23, 2010

I'm trying to get 9.10 to work nicely on a Thinkpad Edge 14".Everything is working fine, except that I have issues with the intel graphics drivers.The monitor's native resolution is 1366x768 and I have Intel HD graphics card on it.I have changed my xorg.conf to use driver = "vesa", but now I get only a resolution of 1024x768.I tried to use xrandr to fix this, by adding a new mode etcetera, but this does not work - I believe because the driver is the issue.Also, doing Ctrl+Alt+F[1-6] gives me a blank screen rather than a console.

How do I find out the details about my graphics chip? Intel Corporation Arrandale Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 12)Maybe I should go more bleeding edge for my drivers? How do I do that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot With An I8xx Graphics Chip On 10.04 - Get Black Screen Of Death

May 26, 2010

I'm having no end of problems trying to get 10.04 onto my older Toshiba Satellite A50 laptop that I use as a spare laptop round the house. The laptop previously dual booted with XP and Xubuntu fine. I wanted to give Lubuntu a go to see if it's performance was better on this older hardware. When installing I got the black screen of death, and also got the same problem with the Xubuntu CD. Research pointed me in the way of this article: [URL] I was able to boot the Lubuntu Live CD using the instructions outlined in method A.

Once installed however I rebooted and Grub seemed to be knackered. Just sent me to a recovery console of which I had no idea what to do. As I could no longer boot into Windows either I reinstalled Xubuntu 9.10 and all was fine. I decided yesterday to give it another bash this time connecting to my wireless from the live cd hoping it would download an update to fix this problem. Nadda, Grub this time did show and I was able to boot into XP, but upon picking my Linux distro I now get an unrecognised device error with a long string of charachters and then it dumps be back into the grub menu, choosing the recovery mode version does the same thing.

Debian Installation :: Radeon Graphics Chip - Jessie Requires Firmware-linux-nonfree

May 11, 2015

If you have a Radeon graphics chip and upgrade to Jessie, install firmware-linux-nonfree, before rebooting.

My dist-upgrade to Jessie seemed flawless until I rebooted and couldn't get into X.

Seems Jessie boots into Gnome by default, but Gnome now requires 3-D acceleration. For my Radeon graphics chip (ATI Radeon 3100), this requires firmware-linux-nonfree, which I didn't need before and was not installed as part of the upgrade.

A boot message alerted me to this need.

I was able to get X going with xinit. I used FVWM; for XFCE I believe the command is:

xinit /usr/bin/xfce4-session -- :1

and from there I installed the package firmware-linux-nonfree.

OpenSUSE :: Run X Without Using Graphics Chip?

Sep 30, 2010

Is it possible to do this? I'm just thinking maybe I can run KDE without using the GPU so that I can use the GPU for computation (CUDA). The system I'm thinking of using is a laptop with Nvidia GTX260M video card. I've seen people talk about frame buffer, but I don't quite understand it because it seems that some people are talking about using frame buffer even when they have a video card on their system.

General :: Graphics Card - How To Discern Video Details From LiveCD

Apr 17, 2010

I was having trouble getting X.Org to work with the video card in a recently acquired laptop, so I decided to try to probe around the configuration of a Linux Live CD to figure out how to set up my kernel. I chose the Sabayon 5.0 Live DVD because it was the only one that I could find that was the same or newer than the 2.6.32 kernel I have installed on the laptop right now. Of course, the DVD booted right into GNOME without issue, unlike the hangs and crashes that I had been getting. So, I want to figure out what kernel driver this Live DVD is currently using, but I don't know how to. hwinfo doesn't shed any light on the matter, and lspci -vnn doesn't list a driver for my video device, though both methods correctly identify that I have an Intel 855GM video processor. How can I find out this information?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Command/program To Find Codec Details On MKVs?

Nov 20, 2010

I've been searching and haven't had any luck so far so I figured someone here's gotta know the answer to this. I'm troubleshooting why some of my MKV files will play audio on my WDTV and others won't. I'm suspecting it's got something to do with the audio codec inside the MKV. However, I don't know how to view what codecs are being used inside the MKV. Does anyone know of a good program or command I can run to view what's inside of the MKV

Ubuntu Installation :: Possible To Replace Mobo / Chip Or RAM Without Reinstall?

Jul 28, 2011

I have 10.04 LTS installed onto an SSD and have a spinning disk for crud, and my brother wants to give me his old GA-PH67A-UD3 and 8GB of RAM if I buy an i7 2600 to put in it. The thing is, I'm happy with my GA-965P-DS3 with Q6600, so I don't actually need an upgrade. So, can I get away with replacing the mobo, chip, and RAM and putting the SSD in the equivalent SATA port on the new mobo (/dev/sda), and will it cope? Will the kernel detect a new board and chip and carry on accordingly? I'll have to remount my crud drive to the same mount point it expects, and if my user account as the same UID as the old system, I'm hoping that might cope, too. Of course, I might be suggesting complete evil, and if this was Windows, I wouldn't even dare think about it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Linux might cope with this kind of change where Windows would fall over in a heap.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Graphics Driver - Graphics Mode Option Via The Start (GRUB)?

Jan 26, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Installation :: Broken OS Selection In GRUB (extensive Details Inside)?

May 10, 2010

I have installed these OS's in this order:

1 - Vista
2 - Ubuntu Server 9.04
3 - Ubuntu Desk 10.04
4 - BT4

I recently upgraded my most often used OS (#3) to 10.04 version and it updated GRUB to GRUB2 as part of the dist-upgrade. I have a feeling that I wasn't careful enough when installing BT4 or I made a mistake in the partitioning. I had plenty of space that was free waiting to be used by some other os and I designated some of that space for BT4.

When I got it all installed (off of a USB live boot) I rebooted and noticed it was back to grub one. The Vista install and the Ubuntu Server install both work still... but the recently updated (to Grub2) Ubuntu Desk install now hangs immediately after selecting it and pressing enter in Grub. I can mount the partition within BT4 just fine and see that all my data is still there, it just won't boot.

What I've tried Using BT4 to install Grub2. (no luck) Installing Grub1.5 back after finding Grub2 didn't work. (no luck) My plan When I get home from work today I'm going to take the "quiet" option off of the boot command in Grub for that Ubuntu OS and see if there's any error it's dumping before it hangs.
Hope that someone has had this issue before and can just tell me a straight forward way of resolving this issue. I'd prefer to use GRUB2 as my boot loader.

Cliff Notes Had other OS's installed Updated to newest Ubuntu (installed GRUB2 as the new bootloader)Used some spare disk to install BT4 New Ubuntu that used Grub2 is now the only OS that won't boot

Slackware :: 3D Acceleration With NVidia 8500GT PCI-E Graphics Card - Error: Couldn't Find RGB GLX Visual Or Fbconfig

Oct 20, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the 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.

Ubuntu :: Update Details In Cli ?

Sep 23, 2010

Is there a way to see details for a packet before updating it?

Like, if you do:

It will give you a list of packets that can be updated, but you don't know to what version and why.

How can I fund out, before updating, what is the version that the new packet will have.

Here I am talking about updates made from the command line.

On a Desktop system, you have that nice list in update manager, and if you click on an item you can see the new version and some details (what will fix, links..)

How can I find these info in cli?
