Ubuntu Installation :: Intel 855GM Video Card Not Accelerated ?

Jul 29, 2011

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?

Slackware :: Video Jumps On Secondary Port - Intel 852GM/855GM?

Sep 19, 2010

After upgrade to Slackware 13.0 (then 13.1, then -current) I still have problems using the secondary video output on my old and trusted Toshiba Satellite (Intel chipset 852GM/855GM). This used to work with Slackware 12.x! The problem manifests itself by jumpiness on the secondary port. The jumps appear with any video update (eg. window focusing, but also with the updates from the Clock or the CPU graph).

This is very annoying, particularly because I use this machine to teach. In only one combination (with a NEC NP-100 projector) I can solve the problem by reprogramming the Framerate to 70 or 75 Hz. After reading many mails and references on the 'net, testing a lot of the solutions to no avail, I'm more confused than ever. And no visible improvement either. Here are a couple of the tests I did:

1) I added i915.modeset=1 to LILO. This helped in the sense that now, in text mode, the 2nd video output remains working, which is slightly useful. But no improvement after startx.

2) Xorg.0.log says:

(II) intel: Driver for Intel.....

then, continues with:

(II) VESA: driver for VESA chipsets: vesa

Why are both drivers signalled here? (solved this by generating a new config with Xorg -configure, but no difference)

3) The intel driver says (in Xorg.log): compiled for 1.7.6, while X -version says 1.7.7 (is this significant?)

4) After this, the line

(EE) intel(1): No kernel modesetting driver detected appears in the Xorg log. This wasn't there when no xorg.conf was present.

5) On the other hand, without an xorg.conf, there was a line complaining about a missing 'fbdev', this seems solved afterwards.

6) Just in case, tried software cursor on/off.

7) Maybe unrelated: After enabling modesetting (which should have been enabled by default),LCD brightness resumes correctly after 'sleep'(before, it would switch to low brightness every time).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Intel GMA X4500MHD Hardware Accelerated Video Playback?

Mar 15, 2011

For a HTPC I'm looking at (mini-ITX) motherboards suited for Socket P (Intel P8400). The only one I found so far is the AOPEN i45GMt-HD which has the " Intel GMA X4500MHD" for graphics. Apparently this card does support Intel Clear Video under Windows Vista, but not under XP so I fear the Linux support might not be optimal either. Can anyone confirm that hardware accelerated video playback works under Linux with the Intel GMA X4500MHD? No review I found about it seems to mention it.

Ubuntu :: Intel 855GM Chipset Fixes For 10.04 Yet?

Jul 17, 2010

Do you guys remember the inability for lucid to boot with some intel graphics cards?

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1466337
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1472282

Anyway I used a workaround to get it working on my Toshiba Portege laptop. However from it stemmed slower graphics, no splash, et cetera. That didn't worry me too much. However, I am now at the stage where I am getting arrays of different issues (that don't necessarily relate) and I would like to just have a nice clean install. I have been upgrading since 8.something and I long for freshness. My files are allready off.

Has anyone patched the kernel or anything? I'm purely a newbish end user and have not been following launchpad or anything. I did the workaround the week of the release. any fixes floating around? If not, I'll go back to 9.10.

Nov 15, 2010

I recently installed the Intel 855GM Drivers and I m quite satisfied with my experience with the improved system perfrmance :] However. I am curious as to if there is a fix for the Compiz aspect. From my previous understanding as of about 3 weeks ago there weren't any available patched or fixes for that particular issue.

Ubuntu :: Video Flicker On Lucid With Intel Card?

Apr 30, 2010

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.

Fedora Hardware :: Unable To Use 12 With An Onchip Intel Video Card

Mar 30, 2010

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:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "intel"
Option "Legacy3D" "true"

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!

[code]....

If I reboot/shutdown, I won't be able to boot again until I repeat the same workaround.

Ubuntu :: Getting X To Work After Switching From Onboard Intel Video To A 5000 Series ATI Card?

Apr 25, 2010

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Noob - NVidea Accelerated .mkv Video?

Apr 30, 2010

Total Linux & Ubuntu noob here Have setup my Dell Dimension 9200 Tower (Pentium 4, 3.2Ghz, 3GB RAM, Nvidea GEForce 9600) with Lucid 32 bit. I'd like to be able to play my 1080p mkv (.264) video library on my Ubuntu system that I use as a media centre.

What is the easiest method to get GPU accelerated video playback for above please ? I have tried the built-in Movie Player, Boxee (which I use for other videos anyway) and VLC - all of which play but with a small amount of stutter - enough to be annoying. As far as I can tell these apps do not use NVidea GPU acceleration. In all cases I have used the defaults provided either by Ubuntu/Boxee/VLC.

Is MPlayer the answer ? BTW I'm a relatively "non-tech-enthusiast" coming from the Microsoft environment. I'm comfortable with DOS command line but have never used Linux command line,

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lenovo T400 - Intel Video Card And Compiz - Desktop Effects Cannot Be Enabled

Apr 4, 2010

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

Code:

"Appearance Preferences" -> "Visual Effects" -> "Normal"

I get an error message saying "Desktop effects cannot be enabled"

Code:

"System" -> "Administration" -> "Hardware Drivers"

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:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

After that I can only use 800x600, wanted widescreen (1440x900). Is there a simple way to fix it? Liked Ubuntu, wanted to use it.

Debian Installation :: X Server Crashes On New Install On Intel I855 Graphics Card

Sep 13, 2010

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Integrated Intel Video And High-def Video W/vaapi?

Jul 6, 2011

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?
