    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Hi

    I thought I had followed the instructions correctly but something has gone wrong...

    I have two kernels installed on my netbook, sickboy kernel, customised for my Acer Aspire One, and the standard generic kernel shipped with Jaunty. The graphics now work fine under the sickboy kernel, but under the generic kernel the screen flickers occasionally and eventually goes blank forcing me to reboot. Somehow I've managed to get a different configuration between the two kernels, the output of cat /proc/mtrr is quite different between the two. Can anyone help me make the generic kernel stable again, I need it to use my 3G dongle.

    Thanks

    Sickboy kernel
    Code:
    claire@claire-laptop:~$ cat /proc/mtrr
    reg00: base=0x000000000 (    0MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
    reg01: base=0x03f500000 ( 1013MB), size=    1MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg02: base=0x03f600000 ( 1014MB), size=    2MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg03: base=0x03f800000 ( 1016MB), size=    8MB, count=1: uncachable
    reg04: base=0x040000000 ( 1024MB), size=  256MB, count=1: write-combining
    Generic kernel

    That's not true. I still get font corruption.

    I have nothing in "Harware Drivers" and i got no xorg.conf and "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" doesn't creat one

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Great guide, worked for me on the first try (I chose optimal). I have a few suggestions.

    I put the symlink to fixmtrr.sh in /etc/X11/Xsession.d, which should make it work regardless of the display manager you use.
    Code:
    sudo ln -sf /usr/local/bin/fixmtrr.sh /etc/X11/Xsession.d/99fixmtrr
    Also, I recommend adding an Apt .list file like /etc/apt/sources.list.d/x-updates.list. That way sources.list is always kept clean.
    Help yourself: Search the community docs or try other resources.

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Thank you so much! I was about to throw my Ubuntu machine out the window after searching for intel drivers, and going through numerous lines of code in bash. This thread got my display fixed! Thank you again!

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    My son and I are having trouble getting the graphics card to work properly in his computer.

    The resolution is good, but the graphics card is not fully functioning. He works on animation and graphics of several kinds, and the graphics programs cannot run without a fully functioning graphics card.

    The computer will not run Blender and other graphics programs. Nor will it even allow for the "normal" "Visual Effects" in the "Appearance Preferences." (It comes up with the error: "Desktop effects could not be enabled," after it tries to find the driver.)

    The system is:

    Graphics Card: nVidia G92, GeForce 8800 GT
    System: Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic, 2.6.31-17-generic, 4.4.1 (x86_64-linux-gnu)
    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ (3 Gigs RAM)


    We know the graphics card works because it works in Windows. (We set up the computer to boot off of either of two hard drives -- either in Windows XP or Ubuntu 9.10, karmic.)

    Neither my son nor I understand much of the terminology on your forums, although I have been using Ubuntu for some years and have read quite a bit. (I also have the "Beginning Ubuntu Linux" book.) I love Ubuntu, but sometimes I just cannot figure out how to get some things running.

    We have tried many different ways of installing the drivers and setting up the xorg.conf file. We have followed the instructions on this and other threads. We also installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86-64-190.53-pkg2.run, as well as 173 and 185.

    The screen will only work at a proper resolution when we set the "Driver" to "nv" in the xorg.conf file. The screen goes completely blank and dead if we set the "Driver" to "nvidia." Then we need to reboot in safe mode and edit the xorg.conf file with VIM.

    When we set the driver to "nv," the Xorg log shows only this one error:

    (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)

    But when we set the driver to "nvidia," the Xorg log gave the following errors before the screen went dead:

    (EE) Jan 20 16:04:32 NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the
    (EE) Jan 20 16:04:32 NVIDIA(0): system's kernel log for additional error messages and
    (EE) Jan 20 16:04:32 NVIDIA(0): consult the NVIDIA README for details.
    (EE) NVIDIA(0): *** Aborting ***
    (II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
    (II) UnloadModule: "wfb"
    (II) UnloadModule: "fb"
    (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

    Fatal server error:
    no screens found


    I don't understand this because, with the "nvidia" setting, it says it successfully loads the driver:

    (II) LoadModule: "glx"
    (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so
    (II) Module glx: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation"
    compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0
    Module class: X.Org Server Extension
    (II) NVIDIA GLX Module 190.18 Wed Jul 22 16:35:50 PDT 2009
    (II) Loading extension GLX


    I have tried the "How to Install nVidia driver" thread and just about everything else I can find. Will this nVidia card even work on Karmic?

    Thanks. Hope to hear from someone.

    Probably have better luck starting a new thread since this one is all about Intel graphics and not Nvidia.

    fwiw, I've had good luck using envyng for installing nvidia drivers.
    It's in the repositories (for Jaunty anyway... don't know about Karmic)
    Read about it here.

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Hi. Thanks for your reply. I tried reinstalling EnvyNG and running it, but I had the same problem. After the EnvyNG installed, and I rebooted, the screen went dead. So I had to reboot in safe mode to reset the xorg.conf driver to "nv" again.

    I guess I'll take your advice and start a new thread. Thanks again.
