    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    SOLVED but here's what happened.

    I followed the safe instructions, then restarted. It beeped multiple times, and showed a white bar in the middle of the screen, beeps grew further apart, and monitor would turn on and off. Then, it just stayed black with white bar, no more beeping.

    I restarted again, hit ESC to go to GRUB and selected Recovery Mode. Then, I selected "solve graphic problems", and then restarted.

    Everything works PERFECT. My kids watch nick jr videos and full screen works great. HULU, etc.

    Thanks so much.

    Has anyone else had problems with having the Safe Configuration settings then updating with the 'XServer-xorg-video-intel' update that came through Update Manager today?

    Edit: Also, I guess you can just lock the current working version in Synaptic Package Manager so you don't accidentally install the problematic, newest version.

    They removed xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.7 from x-swat repositories. Do you know where to find it? It was working better for me than 2:2.9

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    Updating to the new intel driver caused me a pain!
    The screen is white and i can't do anything...
    I read it was needed to have enabled kms...
    Then why they released this update to jaunty where kms is not enabled by default?
    Please help me to restore the situation...
    The problem seems to be widespread and have been posted in various new threads..
    Fortunately I still can run kde so i can post the problem...

    Re: HOWTO: Jaunty Intel Graphics Performance Guide

    I can also run xfce!
    So the problem is strictly gnome related...
    Is it recommended to upgrade to karmic beta?
    How can i do this through the command line/

    Latest X-Org Edgers is VERY slow on my Intel GM965 graphics.
    Xorg hits 100% when opening nautilus or Firefox and becomes very slow and unresponsive,
    Also GDM crashes / resets every time I try to play ANY video. Also I've seem to have lost tty1-6 I just get a blank screen with a frozen mouse pointer on it (no terminal in sight!)

    Theres 1 good thing out if this... it's pushed me to install Karmic tomorrow morning since its the ONLY usable version of Ubuntu with this graphics card that can put out 1080p to an external monitor....
    Laters...

    When the external monitor was connected, the graphical output was completely unrecognizable (colored thin rectangles).
    I'm using Optimal Configuration from this forum post.

    Now, I reinstalled version 2.7.1 and it works fine again

    If I should test 2.9.0, what infos would you need?
    Can you check if you have the same problem on a Karmic live CD, booting with i915.modeset=0 (or nomodeset)? (Karmic uses KMS by default, so disabling it should give a similar situation as in Jaunty.) If yes, please file a bug, where you attach Xorg.0.log

    I asked for testing and did not get any negative responses. The x-updates PPA is for stable releases, and 2.9.0 is a stable release. From the various feedback we have now (after I pushed it to x-updates of course), it seems to work well for some people and worse for others. Anyway, not everybody has to update, they can stay with the old if they prefer.

    Also some people seem confused about which PPAs they are subscribed to. If you are only using the x-updates PPA, you don't need a new kernel or enable KMS. That said, it is possible that it would help...
