    Hello, first of all thanks for making such an awesome effort on supporting intel products on linux, now my problem is that im getting a blackscreen after running the installer (latest version) on my ubuntu 13.04 32 bit, i have searched the forum and tried various workarounds, most regarding with the backlights and brightness using the following kernel params:


    1915.invert_brightness = 1



    but none of these seems to work, myabe because im not running on a laptop, im running ubuntu 13.05 32 bit on a regular desktop pc =S,


    this is the output of lspci | grep vga:

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)


    thanks in advance

  • Hi harima,

    This sounds like a bug to me. This forum may not be of much help to you.

    If you can boot to "text mode" (sometimes "runlevel 3") with i915.modeset=0 but not i915.modeset=1, it would make a good bug report for the i915 kernel developers. Follow the guidelines for bug submission.

    If you can boot the text mode with and without i195 modesetting, that would make this a bug report for the Xorg driver developers.
