Just got a new HP ProBook 4510s at work, it comes with an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500, which VL6 does not seem to support. Vesa mode works on VL6 Standard, but at 1024 x 768, though even vesa mode wouldn't work on the VL6 Classic KDE3 Beta2.

I tried Slackware 12.2, Scientific Linux 5.3, OpenSuse 11 and Fedora 12 and they all set up X correctly and worked, even though some have older kernels and xorg than VL6. Slackware (the only one I really checked in detail) seems to use i915 drivers (which I can't find on VL) and even dri acceleration works.The Slackware xorg.conf does not help in VL6, neither does no xorg.conf at all.

Any solution for this?

Just realized there is no audio either, so I changed the thread title. It seems to be the typical intel hda audio thingamajig. Also, VL6 tries the intel driver, but it just errors out. Just checked the Slackware xorg.conf and it uses i810, which I also tried in VL6. I'm starting to think it's more of a kernel issue, so I will try the 2.6.28.4 packages from the repo.

Fixed the audio after a bit of googling. You need to insert the middle line below in /etc/modprobe.d/sound:

Code:
root:# cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=mobile
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel

PS: I'm moving this to the portable subforum...

I think in sw-12.1/VL6 that i810 is just a symlink to the intel driver

Tried the 2.6.28.4 kernel and it does have the i915 module, but X still won't work! What gives? Should I try the xorg-new packages?

Sounds like a plan... Grin

So... I gather nobody else has this problem, or nobody else has this graphics decelerator?



EDIT: Those are .txz packages... I think I'll go with the Slackware 12.2 stuff, since I have the DVD already.

That worked... Smiley
Both the original VL6 Standard kernel and the upgrade work, so: "Houston, we have an xorg problem..."  Grin

I can finally change the backlight brightness now with:
Code:
echo Y > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
With Y being a number from 0 to 10. Now if I can only get that to work somehow with the FN + Function keys... Angry

I think the first step would be to tail /var/log/acpid and check if the fn + Function keys are triggering an acpi event. If they do you can catch that event in /etc/acpi/acpi_handler.sh

The Fn + F7 or F8 key combos are not handled by acpi, nor can they be set as KDE4 hotkeys (I have switched to VL6 SOHO now). So for now, I just set up Ctrl + Shift + F7/F8 in KDE4. I used to handle FN laptop key combos with xbindkeys and a script on a previuos laptop, but I haven' t had a chance to work on this just yet.

One more thing, the wireless is Intel 5100, so I had to download the firmware from http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/

This is just to add that VL6 SOHO Beta2 got it right with the xorg on the GMA4500... Grin
