please don't assume that people know what "the" message is, or your truncated hardware specs.
please post output of
lspci -vk | grep -iA10 vga
and tell us something about age & type of your computer and the trouble (errors? error messages?) you are experiencing.
This is what it reads out when I ran the code.
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor D2xxx/N2xxx Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device 0be2
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 51
Memory at fe400000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1M]
I/O ports at f140 [size=8]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: gma500
00:1a.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (prog-if 00 [UHCI])
Subsystem: ASRock Incorporation Device 3a37
The system is brand new to me. I think the motherboard is fairly new as well.
After several installs I finally found Mint 17 with MATE to be the most stable. It doesn't give the hardware message, but the video performance is still pretty choppy (especially if there's any other processing going on). MATE also is not nearly as pretty as Cinnamon was.
Thanks for your help!
