Hey Guys,

Need some assistance with my media server, I don't usually do heaps of linux so need a hand.

ubuntu is installing the incorrect intel haswell driver for my integrated video, how do I correct using the CLI? All the guides I have found on the net reference the intel graphical utility.

-Video Settings
--GPU: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x301)
--Screen resolution: 1680x1050@59.95Hz - Full screen
--OpenGL vendor: vmware, inc.
--OpenGL version: 2.1 Mesa 9.0.3

It should be..

-Video Settings
--GPU: Mesa DRI Intel Haswell
--OpenGL Vendor: intel open source technology center
--OpenGL Version: 3.0 Mesa 9.2.1

Is Ubuntu installed in a virtual environment, i.e. VMWare? Can you post the output of lspci to clarify that.

Sorry for the delay...
The problem, most likely, is that Haswell's too new for 12.04.3. Ideally, you should be using 13.10 with newer xorg, mesa and kernel, but you could try the x-edges ppa (https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa/+packages) on 12.04.
