Hi

i was trying to impress people with 528 and im having trouble installing nvidia drivers on a Intel i3 laptop. On first boot xorgwizard shows Intel as the driver and the resolution 1360*768 works flawless. But this laptop has a better nvidia gpu on it. The onboard intel gpu is not dissabled when i install nvidia drivers. Resulting in failing to load x after i have installed the drivers.

Is there way to solve this ?

best regards

Einar

Run Quickpet
Go to drivers tab
Run "click here to test your graphics card"
What does it say about your graphics card?



it says that i had a nvidia 6800 series, but the card is the newer GT310. but i think it will not load the driver because the intel is selected first somehow. any suggestions ?

What driver does this test recommend?

Yes you have one of the second generation Intel i3 processors with integrated GPU in the processor.
Not sure if Liunx has adjusted for these.
It was my understanding that the motherboard would auto switch to add on GPU and disable the integrated GPU.
I would go to the computer manufactures website and see what info they have about this setup.

Your version of G Chome-13 with glibconf works for me.

The one I tried before was Chromium 10.0.630.0, which is in the PPM and Quickpet tools.

darkcity, I thought that Chromium 10 from PPM would work. Not?

So if I get it it has two graphic cards, one that is built into the CPU chip? and one card you added in that is good for games and higher quality things?

But it does work with the built in though only that you then have no use of the better card?


How does Ubuntu and Arch and such high profile distros deal with that situation. Can one learn from then to turn that internal one off?

Could you join the Intel forum something and them there have experts knowing what to do?


Hei Nooby

You are correct, only that the nivida card is not added by me. This is a samsung laptop and the nvidia is default in windows 7. i have not tried ubuntu, but will try opensuse or somthing else than puppy if it cannot be solved.

Hi Playdayz,

Your version of G Chome-13 with glibconf works for me.

The one I tried before was Chromium 10.0.630.0, which is in the PPM and Quickpet tools.

Have added to wiki.

Cool Much thanks Cool

einar,
Did you try disabling the onboard video card in the BIOS setup? Or perhaps it may give options for "first video device" or some such similar? If this is necessary I would think you'd have the same problem in Windows, do you know if you do? Good luck!


tought of that , but the bios on this laptop or any i have witness is very limited. no choise to disable the intel card.

The problem is that the Intel® Core™ i3 Processor has a gpu integrated. and i think many more will have the same issue as me when these new processors becomes regular. I just hope there is a newbie friendly way to disable it

best regards

Playdayz,

Here is a problem with getting connected with a Broadcom wireless controller.
The problem is a normal issue, but the solution is a bit strange.

Guess I'll have to correct myself.Chrome may not have worked in the past on my old Athlon XP but now it does. Followed the instructions here http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=555500#555500 and now Chrome works. Lucid 528 live pfix=ram.

Must have been the libgconf2-4_3.1.6 pet. ....


It took some experimentation, but they are working for me now--I have tried to replace the pets that didn't work--but it is definitely the libgconf pet that makes it happen. And a really odd thing is that I also tried to use the entire gconf 3.16--and the problem came back!

The story is that when I made the pets for Slacko I noticed I had to include libgconf (from Slackware). That pet then worked to eliminate the Loading problem in Lucid but it screwed up Seamonkey--so I just tried the newest Ubuntu libgconf and there we go--Chrome and Seamonkey both seem to be happy.

No problem on P4's, etc. though.I don't really like Chrome but I've made my own pets that do work.Pretty old version so no real reason to upload though.
