X11 fails on VIA UniChrome Pro IGP

Bug #204055 reported by Gertjan on 2008-03-19
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
xserver-xorg-video-openchrome (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: xserver-xorg-video-openchrome

Heron alpha-6 fails to install on a Intel PC with VIA chip set. lspci partial outputs below, lsmod and dmesg (attached).

This is similar to bug #178575 but unlike that bug I have no problems installing 7.10.

With Hardy Heron Alpha 6, the Live CD (Desktop) boots fine and installation proceeds with out issues. On reboot into the new system, no driver is loaded, X11 complains about not finding any screen. /proc/interrupts doesnt even show the graphics card.

I went back to 7.10, which seems to use the via_agp driver. I could re-install alpha-6 on a different drive if some one requires more information or testing. We want to use 8.04 in our production environment so its a problem I would like to see fixed.




ps 8.04 beta fails with same problem

Here X11 does not fail, but, when I open an OpenGL application, it does not work well, as showed in the attached screenshot. OpenGL works fine in Gutsy.

Hi gertjan-hofman,

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? (ISOs are available from cdimage.ubuntu.com)

If it remains an issue, could you also attach a new /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
Thanks in advance.

The output of lspci -vvnn would also be worth having.
