Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics


Hi All,

I have just install the latest version of debian squeez on my laptop.

Which is running an intel i7-2630QM and nvidia gt540m.

I have no experience with drivers on Linux. I have done some reading and what I now understand is that gpu will need to be configured with bumblebee in order to work.

However I haven't managed to get the integrated graphics to work (by work i mean i only have two screen resolutions). Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

If you require any more information please let me know.

Many Thanks,
Ben.

Yes, you'd need Bumblebee to get it working if you have optimus. Do you have a BIOS option to disable optimus entirely?

No I have checked that already and unfortunately there is no option there to disable this.

I'm just not sure where my system stands at the minute in terms of what drivers I have/need.

Is it just a case of configuring it to use bumblebee, or will I need drivers for the Intel chip?

Many Thanks,
Ben.

You have two problems here:
1. As you already figured out, this will only work correctly when using Bumblebee.
2. Debian Squeeze is to old to have the right drivers for your Intel video-chip. Upgrade to Wheezy.

Or enable backports and upgrade to the 3.2 kernel, that'll have them for that chip, and Backports has the Nvidia drivers needed also.
