    Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    This is how I "solved" all my problem with intel drivers in Ubuntu Lucid/Maverick with 855gm chipset.

    Only in Lucid you have to re-enable Kms according to: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Lucidi8xxFreezes

    Code:
    echo options i915 modeset=1 | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    Then for both Lucid/Maverick you have to update your intel driver:

    Code:
    sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    Upgrade your kernel with a mainline kernel from: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa...0-09-maverick/

    Download:

    Code:
    wget -c http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/drm-intel-next/2010-10-09-maverick/linux-headers-2.6.36-997-generic_2.6.36-997.201010090908_i386.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/drm-intel-next/2010-10-09-maverick/linux-headers-2.6.36-997_2.6.36-997.201010090908_all.deb http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/drm-intel-next/2010-10-09-maverick/linux-image-2.6.36-997-generic_2.6.36-997.201010090908_i386.deb
    Install:

    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-2.6.36-997-generic_2.6.36-997.201010090908_i386.deb linux-headers-2.6.36-997_2.6.36-997.201010090908_all.deb linux-image-2.6.36-997-generic_2.6.36-997.201010090908_i386.deb
    Enable Intel Driver by editing your xorg.conf:

    Code:
    sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    ...and paste:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
            Driver          "intel"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier      "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier      "Default Screen"
            Monitor         "Configured Monitor"
            Device          "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection
    Reboot...

    Re: Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    Nice! It works for me, but except this I need /etc/X11/xorg.conf from: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Bugs/Mavericki8xxStatus

    PS: I am cry, because this solution have problem with kernel actualications. Without manulal work it must still on downloaded version, because it not have pkg source for aptitude.

    Re: Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    With default DRI render it can have problems, try this:
    Code:
    Section "Device"
            Identifier      "Configured Video Device"
            Driver          "intel"
            Option          "DRI" "off"
            Option          "HWCursor" "off"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier      "Configured Monitor"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier      "Default Screen"
            Monitor         "Configured Monitor"
            Device          "Configured Video Device"
    EndSection

    Re: Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    You are right....forgot to say that you have to enable intel driver thought an xorg.conf.

    With this kernel you don't have any automatic update...but for me is a good deal for having a nice graphic performance.

    P.s:I don't see any problem with DRI enabled...What problem you still having?

    Re: Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    Having followed the steps in this thread, (along with several other 'fixes') I am still experiencing lockups.

    Is there any news of a fix for this yet? Running with no X is getting extremely frustrating.

    Many thanks.

    In hope....

    Red face Re: Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    I have an i855GM-based Fujitsu-Siemens Stylistic ST5022D.

    8.04: Xv worked great, watched lots of full-screen movies without any hassle.

    9.04: some problems, solved by "nomodeset" at grub boot. Then Xv worked great, I watched lots of full-screen movies experiencing some random freeze (rarely, and only during video output).

    10.04: Xorg started in VESA mode, no Xv.

    Tommaso's links are broken, so I tried to load the latest packages (currently dated 20100511). I also had to build manually the xorg.conf (using "Xorg -configure") and modify it as shown in this page.

    Alas, there are other graphics problems (for example non-redrawn areas when randomly moving windows) and even a "2.6.36.997something" kernel bug (unable to handle NULL pointer in the USB section).

    GLXgears still shows some 120fps (thus it is working in vesa framebuffer mode); Xorg.0.log says it is working with inteldrmfb and does not show any Xv thing.

    The mplayer complains "VO_XV: it seems there is no Xvideo support for your video card available"; the "xvinfo" says "screen #0 no adaptors present".

    It seems I'll have to downgrade to some older Ubuntu release...

    Unhappy Re: Maverick/Lucid 855gm

    I also tried the Glasen's way:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/855gm-fix
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install 855gm-fix-dkms
    reboot

    and it installed everything, but nothing changed (xvinfo still says "no adaptors present").

    Yes, my dmesg says "[ 18.667151] agpgart-intel 0000:00:00.0: Intel 855GM Chipset" and my Ubuntu 10.10 was in a clean state (I uninstalled the -x-swat packages mentioned above).

    Natty alpha 2... still no xv

    I am trying Ubuntu Natty 11.04 alpha 2 on my Fujitsu-Siemens Stylistic ST5022D tablet.

    X11 works, but "xvinfo" says "no adaptors present".


    That is, Natty shows kernel 2.6.38.1 but in the dmesg i find that it uses the old 2008 driver:

    [drm] Initialized i915 1.6.0 20080730 for 0000:00:02.0 on minor 0

    Then xorg 1.9.99.901 says it could support xv but... xvinfo says "no adaptors present".
