Hey, I looked at my lshw output one day to see this:


*-display:0
description: VGA compatible controller
product: Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 2
bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
version: 03
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: msi pm bus_master cap_list rom
configuration: driver=i915 latency=0
resources: irq:32 memory:f0000000-f00fffff memory:d0000000-dfffffff(prefetchable) ioport:1800(size=8)
*-display:1 UNCLAIMED
description: Display controller
product: Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 2.1
bus info: pci@0000:00:02.1
version: 03
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: pm bus_master cap_list
configuration: latency=0
resources: memory:f0100000-f01fffff

The display:1 UNCLAIMED bothered me a bit, and some Googling tells me that it means I don't have a driver for display:1. I'm still not sure what this means, since I have a display:0 that doesn't say UNCLAIMED.

Can someone please explain what this means to me? Should I worry about this at all?

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on a Toshiba Satellite M305-S4822.

That means you only have one display device connected, so unless you have two connected, just ignore it.

Actually, if you look under description you will see that one is VGA and the other is the display adapter. The VGA adapter is the port used to hook up an external monitor to your laptop, so the display driver doesn't have a module loaded for it.

I've got intel graphics in my Dell too, and apparently the intel drivers have been a mess since jaunty, I can't get either of mine to be 'claimed' so I think we just kind of have to wait.
