Intel drivers
« on: November 07, 2010, 12:04:53 pm »
Hi all,
        I'm running snapshot 23388, ui1, with an Intel G33 onboard video chip.

Re-running A-V  wizard to move into UI2-med  results in

 "Orbiter failed to open OpenGL" ........................, no matter what accelleration option I use  in web-admin.

The wiki states that stock drivers should run with UI2 med with no prob (since0704) as do various posts.

Thinking that updating the driver would solve the issue I tried following  http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=9149.0            which failed due to removal of 0810 packages from medibuntu/launchpad.

Could anyone give  a fix /pointers please,

thanks in advance,

Ian

People have claimed success but I have not had a successful boot with UI2 on an intel graphics chip since 0810 alpha days.  1004 xorg & video drivers work well with UI2 on intel chips.

My best suggestion is to wait for LMCE 1004.  The upgrade is very involved and although ui2 displays it breaks keyboard and mouse input to Orbiter.  I don't have enough knowledge to figure out where/why.  With 0810 having been moved to end-of-life by ubuntu there may be more of an urgency to move LMCE towards 1004.

I had a sneaking suspicion (read absolute certainty) that it would be beyond my fat fingers/spongiform brain and low grade eyesight,   :(
                                       
 hey ho, good excuse to buy  an nvidia board, any current recommendations ?

regards,
Ian

Mainboard wise I'm not aware of anything current that works ootb with 0810, many need NIC updates.  That being said others may be aware of a pnp mainboard.  I'd suggest you check out a few of the working configs people list on the wiki to get some ideas but be prepared to massage the install.

Orbiter requires the RECORD extension, and keyboard and mouse input will not work correctly without it. It is not installed by default anymore.

Thanks Thom, I'll look into that.
