    Question Intel HD3000

    Hello everyone,

    At present there doesn't seem to be any official or third party "full" support for the Intel HD3000, I managed to modify the grub file to get a native resolution. However if you try to use compiz or extra effects the system crashes, anyone had any other luck?

    What I did is to add i915 to /etc/modules, add /etc/modprobe.d/i915.conf with:

    options i915 modeset=1

    , and also added sections to /etc/X11/xorg.conf from the defaults created from X -configure:

    Section "Screen"
    ...
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    Modes "1366x768"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection


    You would of course set this for whatever your native resolution is.

    Note that I don't use the intel driver, but leave it at fbdev.

    This causes an ugly (but high-res!) black screen after starting up, but after you startx, everything looks good.

    It's a hack, must be that loading the i915 driver sets up the timing in the chip that fbdev uses. The optimal fix would be to have the intel driver in X work and be able to detect the screen resolution.
