Ubuntu :: Change The Running Driver From Vesa To The Correct Intel Driver?
Oct 1, 2010
I have installed xubuntu 10.04 on a HP Pavilion dv1049ea and am having trouble installing the drivers for the graphics card. When installing i had to use the boot option -xforcevesa in order to get the screen working. Now that it is installed there is constant screen flicker but apart from that all other aspects of the system are working fine. In the display menu i am unable to change the refresh rate. How do i change the running driver from vesa to the correct intel driver? The graphics card is an Intel Graphics 82852/82855.
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.

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 upgrade a machine running centos 5.4 to 5.5 this morning. After the update the X start i saw the pointer and a black backgroud only the desktop doesn't appear.The machine is a barebone with this configuration
Does anyone know how I can get xubuntu to boot up using the glint video driver instead of vesa? I am trying to get it loaded on an older machine and a previous version of ubuntu worked using the glint driver but the latest version of xubuntu (10.04) is using the vesa driver. Which is not working for me. I have tried ubuntu, xubuntu and lubuntu all version 10.04 and neither of them has worked. They all boot up into a terminal window (no GUI).
I tried creating an xorg.conf file and added a line specifying the glint driver. After doing that and trying to startxfce4 I get an error saying that it cannot load the glint module. Unfortunately that machine has no internet connection either. I guess it hasn't recognized my wireless card either.
I'm trying to remove 3Dlabs / Oxygen gmx , and install vesa - Generic VESA-compliant video driver module.How do I remove 3Dlabs / Oxygen gmx ?I can click on VESA in the 'Choose By Name...' , but when I close that box, it shows No Driver.
I have an Asus z9100 laptop with an Intel 855GM integrated graphics chip, which is running Karmic (the purpose of the laptop is to be a MythTV frontend so my understanding is that it needs to run 9.x in order to connect to the MythTV 0.22 backend - I have installed and configured this using the installable Mythbuntu package) and the laptop is subject to this bug which causes random freezes:
So, following advice for similar freezes I've seen, I have added the following options to my grub menu.lst on the kernel line:
and I have edited xorg.conf so that it makes use of the vesa driver instead of the Intel driver. This results in no freezes and if I wanted to watch Myth on the laptop screen I'd be squared away. However, the laptop has a damaged screen so the point was always to output the signal to an external monitor via its VGA out.
When I attach the external monitor and boot with the setup as described, the external monitor is never detected. But I noticed that if I remove the "nolapic nomodeset" from the kernel boot line, it is detected. However, signal is only output to it during the earliest part of boot (when the Ubuntu logo is in the center of the screen before the full-screen graphic with the animated progress line), after which the external monitor goes black and all the display output goes to the laptop screen. The external monitor power button is still lit up green as if it has been detected and is receiving signal, but it's just a black screen.
get the signal out to the external monitor after the initial part of the boot process, using the vesa driver? Here is the current state of my xorg.conf:

I need a driver for a USB2.0 card with a Via chipset on Xubuntu 9.10. I have just visited the Via website and tried Linux Portal, and I found the following available for download: Unified GFX driver Ver 86a-50937 for Ubuntu 9.04(26Oct09) (3.4M). Two questions. One, does this cover USB? Two, it is listed for 9.04, would this cover 9.10 as well?
I have a ATI Radeon HD 4000 PCIe card in my Debian system. I got the proprietary ATI drivers working (fglrx) but a kernel upgrade killed that. I was unhappy with this driver due to the very high memory usage. The card works with the non-proprietary drivers but I can only clone my desktop. I want a single desktop on two monitors.
I booted with Ubuntu Lucid and my dual monitor desktop worked out of the box without the proprietary drivers so I thought that I could emulate what Ubuntu does in Debian. But I can't.
My issue is that I don't know whether I am missing a module in the kernel or I need to set up a brand new xorg.conf. Ubuntu doesn't have an xorg.conf to copy. My default Debian doesn't either.
I have messed around with my own xorg.conf and added various drivers eg "ati" and "radeon" but I can't get it to work with a single desktop dual monitor display.
I have a Asus 54G43-Pro mobo with Intel GMA G43 video chip on it. It works fine in Ubuntu and using the same display with the same settings, under Maverick in comparison with Lucid, the video is a little more sharp and with more contrast. I have dual boot with Windows and in Windows it is even less sharp and contrast.
In Windows I can tune the sharpness, contrast, etc but I was not able to find a simlar features in Ubuntu. I have checked the Synaptic and even installed some Intel GMA files but I still have no access on tuning the video driver. Is this possible in Ubuntu and possible to be hidden somewhere or I can just forget about it?
Im trying to connect my webcam (Trust 16175) to a Debian 5 box:
And with no luck - as I see it the correct driver is not loaded - Using "modprobe gspca" makes no different. I have seen in some papers that the 093a:2621 is supported by gspca. How do I get it to work?
Am trying to install the correct driver for my RV710 Radeon HD4350 grahics card.which version out of these two I should install: * x11-video-fglrxG02 (for HD2000 series and later) * x11-video-fglrxG01 (for Radeon 9500 - X1900)
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.
I've been using it since it was put on current and have been having X crash on me repeatedly or getting a black screen from which I can only recover by a hard reboot. This is happening under a couple of different WMs without compositing (so this isn't the same issue that I was having with KDE and xscreensaver).
I'm using the i915 driver with stock 22.214.171.124, but I also tried a 126.96.36.199 kernel but had the same problem with both.
I upgraded to -current last night hoping to improve my Intel 845G graphics controllers functioning in X, I've had to use the vesa driver for stability. The upgrade was completed but KDE seems as slow as ever. Here's some snippets from Xorg.0.log:
X.Org X Server 1.7.5 Release Date: 2010-02-16 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: Slackware 13.1 Slackware Linux Project Current Operating System: Linux speedy 2.6.33-smp #2 SMP Sat Feb 27 20:12:16 CST 2010 i686 code....
It seems I'm still using the vesa driver, any ideas on why the intel isn't being used and how to fix it?
I've installed 10.04 netbook on an old Fujitsu Amilo L1300 laptop, with an Intel i845 graphic card. As I know, it would run just OK with the 2.11.0 drivers, but i have no idea how to install that. I've downloaded the driver, and every package written on the page: [URL] At first I couldn't even ./configure the install, but now the configuration runs smoothly. However I cannot finish the make part, because it gives an error.
sentor@laptop:~/Documents/xf86-video-intel-2.11.0$ make make all-recursive make: Entering directory `/home/sentor/Documents/xf86-video-intel-2.11.0' Making all in uxa
I've been working on it for four days now, and as much as I'd love to continue it, I've run out of time.
Or if there's a way to use the 2.12.0 driver, then could somebody tell me how?
Just got a SuperMicro X8SIL-F board, and I'm having trouble getting the onboard Ethernet controllers to work. They are both Intel 82574L Gigabit. One of them has (rev ff) at the end in lspci.
Out of the box, both controllers show up as eth0 and eth1, but the connection on either is flaky and unreliable. I installed an updated driver from the Intel Download Center, but now I lost one of my controllers and only have eth0. They still both show up in lspci. I installed the driver by extracting the archive and running make install in the src folder, then restarting.
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
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?
I'm running Sabayon on an Intel X4500-equipped laptop (the x4500 is based on the g43 chipset btw). The video card works, but I get low framerates in games and compiz. I had this working in Ubuntu after upgrading my video driver, but I have been unable to find the driver for Sabayon (or even for ubuntu, I didn't bookmark the link :P). I have the xf86-video-intel-2.9.0 driver installed. Does anyone know how I can speed things up?
I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Xubuntu 11.04. It has an Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device (rev 02) chipset. The driver I'm using is a vesa driver. I ran a check from compiz-check.com to see if my computer could run compiz and it said that I don't have the right driver to run it.It asked if I wanted to check for any proprietary drivers, I ran the check and it came back with nothing. I used to have Ubuntu 9.10 on this same laptop and it ran compiz no problem so I'm a little confused why it won't work with the newer version. Is there something I'm missing? Maybe another driver out there I can try? And if there's really nothing I can do, is there anything out there comparable to compiz that my computer could run? I've been hesitant to upgrade from 9.10 because I ran into this problem with 10.04 so I went back to Karmic and stuck with it until they weren't updating it anymore.
