Good morning, afternoon, evening,
My name is Sam and I'm new to Ubuntu. I've installed a panel PC with Ubuntu 9.04 desktop edition (Jaunty).
I've update & upgrade the system by using the apt-get command, so I have the latest kernel (2.6.28-15-generic)
I can't seem to run X with the intel driver, only the vesa driver works.
I have tried several drivers:
1) apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel
2) apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.4
3) The drivers available from the intel.com website (they don't seem to compile on Jaunty)
Every time I start Ubuntu with driver "intel" I'm getting the message that ubuntu couldn't detect any usable settings, and that I can not boot (I can only boot in init 3)
Another weird thing is that when I go to system -> preferences -> display
I see in the display preferences: "Monitor: Unknown" (and my maximum resolution is 640x480)
It says that my monitor is detected, but no usable configuration found.
Anyone has any idea about this?
Thanks on advance,
root@sas-desktop:~# xresprobe vesa
(Same result if I use xresprobe i810 or xresprobe intel)
vbe: VESA 3.0 detected.

See attachement (you can ignore the penmount block, it's for the touchscreen, that works)
