  • Hello everybody

    I have the last laptop XPS with I7 7560 and its graphic card Intel HD Iris 640

    I'm on Fedora 25 with the last drivers but I have no animation in the OS and "accelerating 3D" freezes most of the time my system.

    is this graphic card ok with the last driver or not ? And I have to wait for the update  ?

    Thank you by advance

  • Hi - can you tell us what the 'lspci -kvnn' output is? Just the section relating to the graphics card will do.

  • This line here:

    Kernel modules: i915

    at the end of that section indicates that the i915 driver knows how to handle the card in question,
    so I'd say the card is supported fine.

  • Thank you for your answer

    My animation are not flowing , my video with VLC too.... So what do you think this is ? The screen ?
    By the way if I remove "nomodsetting" from my kernel start line, my laptop will freeze...

  • nomodesetting means you're not actually using the driver: you're falling back to framebuffer graphics (aiui) - if you're getting freezes when you remove nomodesetting then that sounds like a driver bug.

    I'll have a look and see if there's a bug already filed about your particular hardware, if not I'll walk you through the process of filing a bug (assuming it hasn't alrady been fixed in newer kernels).

  • hello again - sorry for the delay - the instructions for reporting a bug are here:

    The component you want is the first one: 1.1 - drm/kernel.

    Let me know the bug number here when you've filed it and I'll
    make sure it gets looked at by the right people.
