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).
Thank you very much for your action
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.
