    Unhappy Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Wretched time getting 14.10 64 desktop up. Unity/compiz fails again.

    I've been running development level utopic 64 just fine of late, was at 3.16.0-23 O.K.

    Decided to download the "official" 14.10. Download O.K.

    Install O.K.

    Boot up, no unity!

    Tried Ctrl-Alt-F1 sudo service lightdm restart. No luck.

    Much thrashing around booting in recovery mode, fix broken packages, try again, no unity, ...

    Multiple boots finally made it up.

    Not ready for the general public on this Acer Aspire One D255E.

    /var/crash/_usr_bin_compiz.1000.crash

    I'm no developer - looks like Unity screwed up asking compiz to do something that won't work.

    Very much smacks of:

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    As practically a newbie landed up with blank screen on upgrading to U14.
    went through a lot of trial and errors the following worked for me.
    wrote xorg.conf as under - from recovery -> boot normal-> (somehow got to command line boot instead of GUI by frantically pressing Alt/ctrl + Fkeys)
    # sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf and typed lines below.

    Hope it works for someone else - this was for HP Pavilion G6 with switchable AMD Radeon HD 7400M Series card (never get stuck with switchable cards)

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I'm trying to get a multi-monitor setup to work by utilizing my primary monitor that is connected to my AMD card and have a secondary monitor connected to my motherboard's VGA slot. The computer would bootup and have black screens for both monitors. This only happens when I specify the intel driver for the "Intel-gfx", if it's another name then nothing happens but of course the 2nd screen is black.

    I'm doing this off my desktop that is running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    X.Org X Server 1.15.1
    And I'm unsure what gfx driver version to put in here. I forgot which one I installed.
    Mobo: GA-Z87X-D3H
    Gfx card: AMD R9 290

    This is my xorg.conf:

    Code:
        Section "ServerLayout"

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Please post the results of:
    Code:
    lspci -vvvn | grep -i -c 7 VGA
    I see you didn't try to hard set the resolution Mirrored at the same resolution... so can you also post the results of
    Code:
    xrandr -q --verbose

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    Do you wish to have my 2nd monitor plug in when I do this? Does my xorg.conf need to be set for the 2nd monitor for me to show you proper info with these commands?

    [dj@ShodanV4 ~]$ lspci -vvvn | grep -i -c 7 VGA

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    So I see xrandr only seeing 1 montior attached to 1 port (DFP7 on a DVI-D connection)...

    3 things now. Since Grep did not see "VGA", please, send the whole output of
    Code:
    lspci -vnn
    sudo lshw -class display
    Also please post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    What you might also check is, go into your BIOS Setup and see what it says in the display prefrence field. Could be many things, depending on your BIOS, but option might be PCIE, Internal, auto, etc.

    I'm hoping that the BIOS allows Linux to see both GPU's at the same time, but with xrandr seeing only one display attached... maybe not.
    Concurrent coexistance of Windows, Linux and Unix...

    Sorry for the slow response, I'm not a forum guy.

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I feel that it is better if someone understands what they are doing and why... Here is the ABC basics of how that XServer works... Or rather, more basically, the Linux Graphics Layer works... with one or multiple screens and how the desktop is laid out by them.

    You have a virtual desktop that is a certain size... You have a video card and monitor that displays a representation of that virtual desktop. That virtual desktop could be larger than a single screen and go from one to another by switching workspaces... That virtual desktop could be only as big as one display.

    With multiple monitors, there are two ways to lay them out. You could mirror the displays, or lay them out a each monitor showing a section of a larger virtual desktop... If morrored, the displays must be the same resulution. Some drivers will let the displays be different res, but will the smaller of the two, will not show the same (will have some run off the screen). Because that is not something that is usually desirable, some newer video drivers will not let you do that...

    If you want the monitors to be slices of a larger desktop (side-by-side panarama, above-below, all- around patchwork like the matrix...) then you create a large virtual desktop, and tell it where each slice starts, with what resolution that is taken up of that area. It takes some math to lay that out.

    Most people do that with one brand of video card. That makes layout and drivers much easier. Then they can use that vendors utilities to do the layout for them. Since it is easier to do that with alike monitors, they usually require at least the same resolutions. If not, then you have to do the layout yourself by manually doing the math and editing the xorg.conf yourself. That is still possible.

    Then there is what you are doing... two monitors with two different vendor's cards (each with their respective drivers for those cards.) It is still possible. Yet more work to figure out.

    How? Well first is too get each separately to work. An Xorg.conf that would just point to a single device, driver and monitor. Then figure out what your virtual layout will be and how it will be divided up. The deivices are apped to the screen section, that then is put together int he server section. Sometimes it's all put together in the screen section, but most of those times, that is when you are using a single vendor's cards.

    But, to be the devil's advocate... are you trying this as a personal challenge? Does your radeon card already have 2 ports that can handle both monitors? (That would be an easy out...)

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    "video" Kernel Boot Parameter Explained
    This kernel boot options tells the kernel KMS driver on what resolution and/or frequency to


    use. For this to work, KMS must not be disabled (see above). The format of the option is as


    follows:
    Code:
    video=conn:res[M][R][-bpp][@refresh][i][m][eDd]
    This option can be specified multiple times, one for each different connection name - so you


    can have on settings for VGA, one for HDMI, etc.


    conn means the connection name, which depends how your monitor is connected to the system.


    Listed are some common connection names, their names are self-explanatory:
    VGA (VGA connector)
    DVI-I (DVI connector, supporting both digital and analog - rare)
    DVI-D (DVI connector, digital only)
    DVI-A (DVI connector, analog only - rare)
    composite (composite video)
    s-video (S-video output)
    LVDS (Laptop panel)
    component (component video output)
    displayport (Mac display)
    HDMI-A (the first HDMI port)
    HDMI-B (the second HDMI port)
    TV (TV output)
    res stands for the resolution. It is specified as widthxheight, in pixels (e.g. 800x600).
    M if specified, means that the display timing frequency will be computed using VESA CVT


    standard, otherwise a hard-coded timing table will be used.
    R if specified, means that a "reduced blanking" display timing frequency will be used. This is


    useful for digital displays (LVDS, DVI or HDMI). Otherwise standard timing will be used.
    -bpp stands for bit-per-pixel, that is, the bit-depth of the display, that is, the number of


    colours to be used. If not specified, the driver will choose the highest supported one. Common


    values are:
    -32 (32-bit per pixel: 16million colours)
    -24 (24-bit per pixel: 16million colours)
    -16 (16-bit per pixel: 64thousand colours) - you're unlike to use this nowadays
    -15 (15-bit per pixel: 32thousand colours) - you're unlike to use this nowadays
    -8 (8-bit per pixel: 256 colours) - you're unlike to use this nowadays
    -4 (4-bit per pixel: 16 colours) - you're unlike to use this nowadays
    @refresh specifies display refresh rate (also known as the vertical frequency refresh rate).


    Usually @60 or @59 for digital displays, you can specify others for analog / CRT monitors. If


    not specified the highest supported rate will be used.
    i, if specified, means to use interlaced mode for calculation. Only makes sense for analog /


    CRT monitors.
    m, if specified, means add some margins to the display timing calculation (add 1.8% margin).
    m, if specified, means add some margins to the display timing calculation (add 1.8% margin).
    e, if specified, means to enable the port (even if no device/monitor is detected).
    D, if specified, means to enable the port (even if no device/monitor is detected) and use the


    Digital interface.
    d, if specified, means to disable the port (even if there is a monitor attached there).
    Note: This is a generic parameter used to set framebuffer display resolution. It can also be


    used for non-KMS drivers too. That is further discussed in further Linux Kernel reference int


    the Linux Kernel Framebuffer Documentation at: https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/fb/


    For example #1, I have a desktop that I use an animated Plymouth Splash of the Ubuntu Rising


    Sun. It is on a box with nVidia, but the montior has a corrupted EDID. The EDID is defined


    manually in the xorg.conf, but Plymouth needs graphics hints before that, so:
    Code:
    video=uvesafb:mode_option=1620x1024-32,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap,noedid
    Notice in that one it uses a generic driver for VBE2+ compliant video cards, sets the resolution to 1620x1024, the color depth to 32, the memory type registers to write-combining, scrolling this way assumes the gfx board can wrap-around the video memory, do not try to fetch and use EDID-provided modes.

    For example 2, is a common config I have connected through KMS switches to a shared HP TFT5600 Rackmount Keyboard and Monitor (RKM), that only goes up to 1024x768 and has a very narrow sync rate range... and does not
    like to be probed for other modes. If it is probed or encounters a mode outside of what it has, it will end in an out-of-range error.
    Code:
    video=VGA:1024x768-32@60
    (Note that the context of KMS in the quote at the top of this post refers Kernel Mode Switching, while a KMS Switch at the bottom of the post refers to a physical peripheral sharing device that allows multiple servers to share a single monitor, keyboard and mouse, as a local or remote console..)

    Re: Graphics Resolution- Upgrade /Blank Screen after reboot

    I'm not sure where to begin. So I'll start with my hardware and where I've ended up.

    cpu: AMD 1090T
    mb: Gigabyte: 890FX-UD5 v2
    ram: 8Gb G-Skill 1033 DDR3
    video: AMD 7870 xt (Tahiti)

    Issue: Neither 14.04 nor 15.04 boot past Grub menu on a LiveCD. I get the nice purple background with Ubuntu and the 5 dots that cycle through. Hitting escape early on shows an error regarding NTFS; however, it is by passed and 'objects' begin to load and pass. Eventually the whole thing grinds to a halt at a Print Spooler. Well that is where the screen returns to black one final time and nothing, not even a "Ubuntu@ubuntu: $" command line is accessible. Now I have attempted to utilize as many of the commands as possible found within the initial post. The only command that works in sudo lshw -numeric -class video which returns information regarding the graphics card. The lspci command fails as not found and does not install re: sudo apt-get install lspci. From Grub the parameter radeon.nomodeset=0 results in a highly corrupted screen that is a mix of the Ubuntu loading screen and oddly enough my text based bios boot-up screen. The command xrandr does not work and is not found. I am outright stuck.

    Can anyone help me from here?
