Intel video problem in slackware current
Hope somebody can help me.
I installed slackware current because itīs RC2 and i want to try KDE4,
but after upgrading i canīt start X, the system freezes in the splash
screen of KDE and nothing but the mouse respond, so i have to make a
I knew about the problems with the new Intel Driver and the new
version of X server that slack current ships but i thought tha because
it was RC2 things had got better.
Anyway i have tried all the versions of the intel driver slackware
current ships but still no joy. Both with an xorg.conf or without it
as indicated on the CHANGES_AND_HINTS file.
Anyone knows how to correct this?? can i use the driver shipped with
slack 12.2?? I really donīt want to go back to 12.2 now that i am on
My card it's an Intel 82865G, and i have to use the VESA driver in
order to start x.
how do you upgrade your box?
manually or using slackpkg?
Have you merged the new .conf files?
thanks for replying.
i downloaded the slackware and extra folders to my hd and yes i have replaced all the *.new files.
Would you publish/read the log file (/var/log/Xorg.log) please.
Do you still use a xorg.conf file?
have you upgraded all the packages in x/ directory?
I think you will need latest mesa, libdrm, xorg-server-* and several other packages to use the latest Intel driver
Make sure hald is running.
Xorg.conf is not necessary any more. But you may keep your specializations there still.
Just to make sure,
Did you follow the following instruction from CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT ?
Sorry for responding late but i had to go out...
I have followd the steps indicated in CHANGES_AND_HINTS but still no luck:
Here are the logs for X with and without an xorg.conf. hope somebody can help me because i am totally lost by now.
Thanks in advance.
first I'd like to say is, that i really don't know what's exactly wrong here, but i have maybe a similar problem. I currently believe, that hal could be the problem.
Please publish your /var/log/kdm.log
While/after the Server crashed, press alt+print+r and then alt+print+e. What happens then?
Try to boot into runlevel 3, login as root and execute init 4. Does this work?
I started in telinit 3 and executed init 4, kdm starts ok but accepts no input. i did alt+print+r and alt+print+e and kdm restarts but still accept no inputs.
I attached kdm.log and xorg log
Hope you find something useful.
The only thing i noticed is that when a do telinit 4 hal tries to load i810 driver, and when i try to startx hal tries to load intel driver..
the messages are slightly different to my problem, but the symptoms are the same, so we can give it a try. In my case the problem was my attached keyboard (Cherry G230).
Is it correct, that your xorg.conf uses the following options?
If it starts up normal, and you have such a problem like me with the key-bindings. You could try to set the Options back to true and copy a modified version of /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-keymap.fdi to /etc/hal/fdi/policy/10-keymap.fdi.
I am really not sure, if it helps you, but it worked in my case. If it won't help, I have no idea, what is wrong.
Edit: Of course you need to restart hal, if you copy the keymap.fdi file. Another way to check, if the keyboard is the problem, is disconnecting it, until X is fully startet and then attach it.
Good luck and cu
itīs in this link:
"I hate to say this, but it appears as if the 82865 chipsets are simply not going to work with 13.0 :/ There's nothing we can do about it either, it seems -- there have been numerous reports of it not working, and I can't find any indication of anything we're doing wrong. If someone has the inclination the bring it up on the xorg mailing list, feel free - I'm subscribed there, so I'll participate as needed.
What does this mean, you tried my suggestions?
I tried them all but still no luck. In fact i already had the 3 options set to false in xorg.conf.
With the 188.8.131.521 kde loads but after it loads the desktop it freezes.
Starting in telinit 3 and then telinit 4, kdm starts but accepts no inputs.
I will continue to play with xorg.conf to see if i can make it work...
Have you had some succes???
Thanks for the help...
I had similiar problems with another intel-chipset, and the steps i suggested helped in my case.
Compositing is disabled in xorg.conf?
I still believe, it is a problem with HAL.
