Ubuntu :: Xorg Configuration For Intel Onboard Video?
Dec 20, 2010
My PCI-E Nvidia card died, and I want to use the onboard video from my H55 chipset, which Windows identifies as "Intel 5 Series/3400 Series". This is on 10.04 LTS.I did 'apt-get purge nvidia*' followed by adding "intel" as the driver in xorg.conf, but on boot I get the message:
intel0: no valid modes found
Screen(s) found but none has a usable configuration
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.
Is it practicable to run Slackware 13.0 32-bit, Xorg and Xfce on Intel 82865G video hardware? In case it matters, the 82865G is on an Intel D865GSA motherboard. Robby Workman says in this LQ thread "The 82865 chipset almost certainly isn't going to work with Xorg from Slackware 13.0. Stay with 12.2.". Netsearching suggests the alternatives are non-trivial.
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?
Got a bit of a problem where xorg can't start kdm. I pulled out a dying AGP card to try and switch to onboard video, and I think the previous configuration is gumming up the works.I've been running this system for quite a while, as you'll be able to tell from the version numbers.Would like to avoid having to transport my Amarok databases to a new server. I make heavy use of the song ratings and whenever I try to transport the database from the old system to a fresh build I have to spend hours relearning sql commands.Any ideas how to either fix the resolutions on the ATI or (preferably) get KDE to start on the onboard graphics?
I am running Debian 7.0 Wheezy amd64...I installed Debian's nvidia driver earlier but I was having a few issues with OpenGL. So I removed those drivers using "apt-get remove nvidia*" and installed proprietry NVIDIA's driver from their website.Now the issue is, my apt-get/synaptic does not work anymore because it is trying to remove xserver-xorg-video-nvidia and failing to do so.

I have installed Fedora 14 on Intel's DH67BL mother board, which has a on board LAN port, Fedora 14 does not detect on-board LAN. Unfortunately, intel does not provide any driver support for linux OS :-(. However, if I install an additional LAN card, Fedora 14 detects it and everything works fine.
I have installed slacware 13 on an intel server, but the IP add that i have assigned does not work. I used ifconfig to check the ip but it shows me 127.0.0.1. I have run netconfig with the ip address i need and restart the machine, but it goes back to 127.0.0.1

my onboard video is going bad.i have a radeon 9250 pci 256mb v/d/vo card.i would like to install before the onboard goes all the way out.how and what all do i need to do.what do i look for and change in the bios.yes it may be the power pack but if not i can not install the video card later
I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.
So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?
I installed Edubuntu 9.10 on a Dell Optiplex GX260. This system has onboard INtell 846G series video. I want to install an NVIDIA video card. I popped it in the case, diabled the onboard video. I get the POST, the GRUB, no problem. But once I get past the GRUB, all I get is a blank screen. The HDD does not sound like Ubuntu is loading.
I just replaced my motherboard with a Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H. I am happy to report that the OS (Ubuntu 10.04) was smart enough to boot up using the pre-existing software RAID 5 (four disks) and work fine with the new motherboard, CPU, and memory. However, since the new motherboard has a nice onboard display, I removed the PCIe graphics card (which was needed on the old board), and am now trying to configure the OS to use the "OnChipVGA."
This is what lshw produces

I just built a computer and the onboard nic pluggin is loose and won't register or connect right... so I had to put another nic card in pci to connect to wired network for internet. Problem now is its delaying something fierce... i'm thinking if i can manage to uninstall or disable the onboard nic maybe things would work better... problem is i wouldn't know how to do it... I know hardware is connected via a document somewhere in the file system... if I were to delete the file would that disable the nic or would it just reinstall itself on the next boot?
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?
I've freshly installed Debian Lenny 5.03 with xfce from cd, but I'm having intermittent problems with X. Mostly X will startup fine, but occasionally it crashes. If I'm lucky, it will just shutdown and just return me to the text-mode login. But if I'm unlucky, it freezes completely, such that even the alt-SysRq key combos won't work.
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?
I have a IBM ThinkCenter workstation with an Intel i810 chipset and can only get a resolution of 800x600 maximum. I have read this url dealing with this chipset and resolution and cannot get anything past 800x600.http://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/x-config.htmland here is my /etc/X11/Xorg.conf
I'm trying to get full 3D acceleration working with an Intel 82865G Integrated Graphics chipset on my Arch install. I'm wondering if it's possible to get it to work with xf86-video-intel, as I can't seem to get the Intel-provided drivers to compile. As also stated, I have to xorg.conf to speak of, so I can't exactly go in and simple edit lines, unless I wrote it from scratch, which I'd really rather not do, LOL. I've tried Google (including their special Linux search mode), and LQ Search, and I can't seem to find information that's relevant enough to me that I can use. Here's glxinfo (only the (hopefully) relevant portions):
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).
With the upgrade to Squeeze and the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel, my Dell GX260's 82845 video chip suffers from the documented intel driver bug (freezes within a few minutes). I tried to fall back to the vesa driver, but am only able to get 640x480 resolution. The monitor is an LG L1720P.
I turned off kernel mode setting (via /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf), and modified xorg.conf -- added Modeline entries (from gtf) and additional Mode lines to try to force resolution. Relevant portions of xorg.conf, dmesg and Xorg.0.log are shown below.

I have a video card (Nvidia) in my computer that I want in another computer. I am going to be using the onboard graphics instead. I am running Lucid 32bit.
When I start up using the onboard graphics, the BIOS screen appears, then I see the normal underscore "_" flashing in the top left corner, but when that is done, my screen turns black and the monitor shuts off. I tried running a live USB and everything was fine so it's not a problem with the graphics card compatibility. I think I have to try booting into the command line and typing
Code: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
but I don't know how to enter the command line. Is that what I have to do or is there a different way?
My laptop has an Intel video card. Does Intel have open source drivers that are included in the kernel? I'm kind of curious because I do not have a xorg file, and I did not install any drivers as I had to on my nvidia desktop, yet all of my maximum resolutions come down accordingly.
I'm just curious on what exactly controls the video settings if xorg isn't in the picture.
Also - what relevance does the Fn keys have that probe for a 2nd monitor to Ubuntu? For example, I do not have a 2nd monitor attached, but if I hit Fn F8 over and over, sometimes it changes my resolution. Why is this? Why would that revert my resolution?
i have upgrade my system from maveric to natty and i have install install the driver from Martins [URL]..and since when i try to play a video (with mplayer gnompleplayer ou banshee) it makes Xorg crash and show me the login screen Here is the result of the commande
Code: ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-static checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether build environment is sane... yes checking for gawk... gawk
PROBLEM: My computer has an nvidia video card. I'd like to remove the packages that support ati and radeon. When I try to remove xserver-xorg-video-ati or xserver-xorg-video-ati, the package manager wants to remove xserver-xorg-video-all.
QUESTION: Is it safe to remove xserver-xorg-video-all? Obviously, I want to keep support for my nvideo card.
I'm running 9.10 on an HP d530 SFF, Pentium 4 2.8GHz HT w/800MHz FSB and 512KB L2, 1.25GB DDR333 RAM, GeForce 440MX. In the BIOS I have ACPI S3 Video REPOST enabled, as well as ACPI S3 Hard Disk Reset enabled. Resuming had the same problem with either of these settings disabled as well. Install graphics driver is nvidia-glx-96, version 96.43.13-0. To my knowledge, this is the newest driver that supports the GeForce 440MX -- I attempted to upgrade to newer drivers for XBMC before but they do not support the card.

When I attempt to suspend this machine it suspends fine, and will come back to life when I press the power button. I then get a hardware (text mode) cursor for a few seconds, then the screen blanks and goes black. At this point I can ssh into the machine and it is responsive, mostly, but Xorg is taking up 100% CPU and the fan spools up to maximum. The Xorg process is unkillable -- kill -9 won't do it. Load avg on the machine is high and it gets freeze-y for a few seconds at a time. How to get either suspend or hibernate working. This is a media box and we'd like the convenience of a quick resume time, but the ability to save electricity when it is not in use.
