Find More Posts by Arcosanti. Most recent Intel chips have two CRTCs, meaning that two separate framebuffers can be displayed simultaneously, in an extended desktop configuration. One possibility depending on how old your display driver is, is to see if the i driver will work. For example, if you have a panel without EDID support and it isn’t integral to the motherboard i.

i810(4) – Linux man page

There are many options available for the i for the intel driver in Xorg. Most recent Intel chips have two CRTCs, meaning that two separate framebuffers can be displayed simultaneously, in an extended desktop configuration. Thanks for that Didier!

There is the i kernel module in Slackware I lihux resolution and ran the command you gave again. Results 1 to 9 of 9.

Please visit this page to clear all LQ-related cookies. However there are cases when it can go awry. Normally it will attempt to detect the fixed timings, and it uses a number of strategies to figure this out. From ‘man intel’ Quote: BB code is On. This is usually achieved with an “agpgart” or “agp” kernel driver.



This option normally enables the above-described detection strategy. Slackware 14 with Intel i video Hello all, I’m trying to install Slackware 14 on an older laptop of mine and am running into the same problem I had with Slackware I understand that i fixes a lot linkx the problems that were present in the earlier i8xx drivers.

This then causes the hardware scaler to be disabled, and the actual timings then used fall back to those normally lonux via the usual xorg mechanisms.

Under most circumstances, the detection scheme works. Please ask on intel-gfx if you want to get your feet wet on this. April 25th, 6. All times are GMT Now there’s just this cryptic identifier everycard gets the same one??

For the i and i family of chipsets, operating system support for allocating system memory is required in order to use this driver. So how does the driver figure out the correct fixed panel timings? I will try the instructions on the dell page again and post linus with the results now that the resolution package is installed. For a better view of daily progress, please see the logs of the source code repositories.

The number of independent outputs is dictated by the number of CRTCs in X parlance a given chip supports. The Intel graphics driver is currently maintained in the xfvideo-intel git repository in X. Just do this as root: The problem in Slackware 12 was the -intel driver package did this but the -i driver package works.


The example below puts the VGA output to the right of the builtin laptop screen, both running at x From ‘man intel’ Quote:. More instructions on using git to interact with the repository can be found at UsingGit.

If a chip supports more outputs than it has CRTCs say local flat linuxx, VGA and TV in the case of many outputstwo of the outputs will have to be “cloned”, meaning that they display the same framebuffer contents or one displays a subset of another’s framebuffer if the modes aren’t equal.

Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free. Envoyer un formulaire de recherche. Therefore, the VideoRam option, which in the past had been necessary to allow more than some small amount of memory to be allocated, is now ignored.
