  • Hi

    I have a Sony VGN-SZ770N. It has two STAMINA and SPEED modes. I have installed windows VISTA and CENTOS-5.6 when it was on SPEED mode. VISTA works well with both modes. But in STAMINA mode CENTOS-5.6 can not start X-SERVER on neither card0 and/or card1. To resolve the problem I did the followings:

    1) yum install x-org-x11-drv-i810

    2) system config-display  --reconfig –set-drive=intel_drv  --set-depth=24

    3) system config-display 

     

    But the problem resist and I can just enter command mode of CENTOS.  After the 3rd step, so system config-display,  I receive the following messages:

     

    Couldn’t start X server on card0

    Couldn’t start X server on card1

    Couldn’t start X server with old config, trying with a fresh configuration

    Couldn’t start X server on card0

    Couldn’t start X server on card1

     

    I mention that I can not use SPEED mode because of physical damage to this mode (In SPEED mode monitor show vertical lines and dotted screen and just STAMINA mode show a clear screen). My card is under a Mobile Intel 965 Express chipset family.

     

    So how can I solve the problem???????????

     

    I have attached the xorg.conf created by system config-display; Xorg.setup.log and Xorg.0.log as follows

    1) xorg.conf conent:

  • Hi There,

    first of all I had to google stamina x speed to find out this is a hybrid system where stamina means using only Intel GPU and speed is nvidia or ati video board.

    If you really don't want to use nvidia I'd recommend you to uninstall any package related to nvidia or nouveau or fglrx. But you have to install xf86-video-intel and intel driver under Xorg.conf is "intel", not intel_drv.

    So, you have to verify that xorg video intel driver is installed, using intel on xorg.conf and that i915 kernel module is loaded by using lsmod.
