    So you are saying the Karmic kernel has the necessary driver in a Karmic installation, but not when you use it in Jaunty? Or does "same kernel as karmic" not mean the karmic kernel? Well hard to guess any further since you don't even mention the name of the card or driver involved...

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Yesterday I updated many packages, and xorg-video-intel was among them. And I think that is the source of my problem now.

    When I boot my Ubuntu Jaunty, I get this message:
    Code:
    Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode
    The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this.
    
    (EE) intel(0): No kernel modesetting driver detected.
    (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
    After that I can choose from several options: reconfigure graphics (it doesn't help), go back to the console login, or to start ubuntu in low-graphics mode (that's what I am doing now). If I start in low-graphics mode, everything works good, but in a small (about 640x480) window in the center of the screen. Borders are black.

    How can I solve this?

    download 3 files for the architecture of your computer. for me (i386), that's the

    linux-image....i386.deb
    linux-headers...i386.deb

    and

    linux-headers....all.deb (that's for both archtiectures)


    once you've downloaded them somewhere, run in the directory they are in:

    sudo dpkg -i file1 file2 file3

    then restart.
    Thanks a lot, that did the trick

    @areskz: You should try this. You're getting the same error message I was having.

    First step: follow the instructions in the original post to downgrade from xorg edgers to the jaunty default. (open sources.list with nano or vi rather than gedit) Be sure that, if it says it will remove any packages, that you look for anything that is libglu1 or mesa or anything else that looks like the stuff you are trying to downgrade. If so, cancel the operation then try again with downgrading those packages as well, so that you don't end up removing any packages.

    Then run an update and full upgrade to make sure you have the latest versions of everything

    You will have to do all this from the command line, so make sure you have a wired internet connection (or some way to get wireless working, though its not really worth the effort)

    Anyone know any more stable xorg packages that work about as well as the xorg edgers? They've worked great, but this is the second time this has happened. The new default packages are tolerable, but there's still some lag and artifacting in plasma.

    Edit: Sorry, you're in a better position than I was. I couldn't get any gui. So, you won't have the editor or wireless issues, but otherwise, that's pretty much how to solve the problem until its fixed on the dev side.

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Something I did ages ago was to make a Clonezilla image of Jaunty prior to any fixes from this thread. I initially used the Safe Configuration and it still works fine with my 945GZM-S2 Gigabyte board after the latest updates for Ubuntu, which were pretty big. I can't remember the extent of them.

    Please Read the Fine Manual, thank you

    I am glad there are so many helpful people here and people willing to test out the latest development drivers. However there is a lot of misinformed and bad advice given in the forums.

    1. Read random postings with a great portion of skepticism and caution
    2. Be careful when posting information, at least take the time to look up information given in earlier posts and try to find official documentation


    Now, to the issues some people have with the latest -intel drivers from xorg-edgers:

    1. It is all explained on the xorg-edgers PPA page
    2. It has also been reported in launchpad #447181 (how I found this thread)
    3. There is nothing wrong with the driver that needs to / will be fixed
    4. The latest -intel drivers have dropped support for UMS (user mode setting) and only use KMS (kernel mode setting) so the kernel has to run with KMS enabled
    5. The Jaunty kernel needs the "i915.modeset=1" boot option to enable KMS
    6. Karmic kernels have KMS enabled by default. They also contain many fixes to the kernel part of the intel driver stack.

    I see that some people simply refuse to look up the PPA page (it is linked from the instructions in the first post) so I will explain:

    The xorg-edgers PPA tracks the work of the developers. It can be expected that it breaks for some users from time to time, since any developer can not test his changes on all hardware. You are providing this testing and it is highly appreciated. The idea is that you provide bug reports if something does not work. It is also expected that you know how to revert to the last working version in this case.

    This thread only deals with Intel integrated graphics. I suggest you create a new thread with your problem here or here.
