    New intrepid X needs critical fix

    Both of these are affected with same X bug, every time i need specify driver then it works well so please fix X display driver loader sensor that it detects right display or loads vesa if no good drivers available.

    I can confirm it affects 6 computers including my 2, it needs critical X graphics detector fix.

    You've reported those bugs?
    You submitted enough information to triage those?

    in beginning i tried to submit but now there is no need because everyone can understand that X is little "drunk" that she cannot select driver automatically.

    I can confirm this and I have a ongoing bug about this.

    But.. I must "poison" my PC to get it working again.

    Something is broken with Jockey, detection and a driver install.

    Also ABI versions for the kernel maybe ???

    dmesg also looks strange.


    A clean PC with just a broken install is needed for a new bug report.

    BTW even safe graphics mode do not work, safe graphics mode should use xorg.conf file that has driver set "vesa" to force load desktop whatever hardware is like Windows does in beginning.

    Where i can see daily changelog when is fixed that xorg or that jokey clown thing.

    Well... "clown thing"... have you filed any bugs about this ?

    This is a "minefield" for a developer and they are just doing this great !!

    We are also running a TEST version...it should be bugs !

    The correct response to which would be:
    a) Saying so on Ubuntuforums
    b) Reading the linked wiki page: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Reporting and attaching the information needed to fix your problem, or
    c) Both (a) and (b)
    ?
    Remember: if your problem is not described on a Launchpad bug, it can only be fixed by accident!

    Then provide the log and reopen the bug. We can't fix bugs where people give no information.

    Re: New intrepid X needs critical fix

    i do not know how to log and solution is to: 1. fix graphic bug detection sysem 2. give option to load vesa driver 3. fix safe graphics mode to use vesa 4. if you are expert find computer that fails to load and send logs to developers.

    Here is list of my tested computer errors:

    1: Radeon 3870 - monitor did not accept signal-
    2: SiS mirage 3+ - Gnome failsafe
    3: Geforce 2 - Gnome failsafe
    4: some very old intel chip - Blank screen
    5: unknow chip - Gnome failsafe
    6: stoneage 500mhz laptop - Gnome failsafe again

    And all these bugs i fixed with:
    cd /etc/X11
    sudo nano xorg.conf

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Configured Video Device"
    Driver "vesa" (radeonhd was for 3870)
