Hi Guys,

i was trying to get the 3D-Driver running on my new Laptop with Backtrack 5r3 64 bit KDE, but I had no luck so far. The Laptop has a HD 4000 Graphiccard (Ivy Bridge) + a Nvidia GT 640M LE (Optimus), Intel i7 CPU.

On my older Laptop (HD 3000 + Nvidia GT 555M) this one worked: http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forums/showthread.php?t=48904
but not on the new one.
I also tried the other drivers form x-swat, glasen, ... none was working for me.

I booted from a Xubuntu Live-DVD with a newer Kernel (3.5 I think), from there the i915-driver was recognised automatically.

So my question is: is it possible to get the driver for the HD 4000 running, or do i have to wait for the next version of backtrack?

I hope somebody can help....

Hey there,

well I couldn't get it fixed either. I have installed newer intel graphics drivers from glasen PPA

add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver
apt-get update
apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-intel=2:2.15.0~lucid~ppa9

but there is bug with the kernel 3.2.6 that gives me now offset on the lvds.
But at least I can use my 2 external monitors.
I've tried applying the patches already and neither has helped and because of that I've issued a bug file at freedesktops.org :
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60511

If you get it working please let me know. I will update the topic as I have anything new.

Hi,

I have updated kernel to 3.2.15 and got HD 4000 working fine, we will see the dependency issues etc.. But I think for you to get HD 4000 working is also to get newer kernel.

Play with kernels. I have tested with many different kernel versions and got it working on 3.2.15 finally.

Hi blackhatrob,

I also updated to kernel 3.2.15 cause my Intel HD 4000 was not working properly.

SEE MY POST HERE (http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forums/showthread.php?t=60272&page=5)

Can you tell me if you figured out something in Backtrack which was not working (security tools, etc....)? I am not the Linux specialist - it took me 3 weeks to figure out that I maybe have to use a different kernel to get my HD 4000 in working condition.

Do you also know the difference between the Backtrack Kernel and the updated one (3.2.15)?

Thanks for reply :)

Hi,

kernel use same glibc6 and as the linus says "WE DO NOT BREAK USERSPACE!" https://lkml.org/lkml/2012/12/23/75
Changes in 3.2.15 are here: https://lwn.net/Articles/492315/

Do not update to newer than that as you would have to update glibc6 and that would broke the applications.
