Hey Fred - that is interesting - would you mind posting the exact monitor model here? It might be something the devs would want to look into.
The monitor is a Dell 1709FPt. I didn't get a chance to try that one with DVI so I'm not sure whether the problem was the VGA connection or the monitor itself.
Huh ! first success! I went through the
and couldnt get it working on debian testing.
... well I thoughof trying stable kernel... added all apt source entries of stable repos and added 3.16 kernel... AND IT WORKS.
I can tell now one thing: HD6200 on broadwell is ... fantastic. Im a mazed :)))
Seems that someone pushed bugs into 4.x kernels.
3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u3 (2015-08-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux
In grub and modules:
options i915 enable_rc6=7 enable_fbc=1 modeset=1 preliminary_hw_support=1
Some improvements could be done but Im running steam games... and, well, its damn fast ! (for an intel gpu ;-)...)
Still - waiting for newest kernel to be fixed - there are some lags when dealing with FS, but nothing major.
Bingo! That did the trick. Same antique Samsung monitor but I switched from miniDisplay port -> VGA adapter to miniDisplay port -> DVI adapter and the NUC display is fine with current fedora 22.
Chris - in addition to switching the cable, did you have to do anything else? Which kernel did you end up going with?
I only switched the cable. Kernel presently in use = 4.1.8-200.fc22.x86_64
Ok - thanks - that's a useful piece of information and not one I would have thought of asking for.
Hi guys - not sure if you are still watching this thread but Intel are chasing the bug here:
and it looks like they could use some more info to help reproduce and pin
down the problem - So if you see this, it would be great if you could head over
to the bug and comment.
