Re: [SOLVED] Video problem, Intel

You are not booted with the jessie-backports kernel and it does not appear to be installed.

Can we see:

apt search linux-image | grep installed

Re: [SOLVED] Video problem, Intel

Also, you have a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit kernels -- if you have installed a 32-bit system then you should *not* use and "amd64" image, install the 32-bit version instead.

Unfortunately, I have no 32-bit machines and have absolutely no idea which kernel you should use for such hardware, perhaps somebody else can help.

Use this to show all the kernels that are installable:

apt search linux-image

Re: [SOLVED] Video problem, Intel

apt search linux-image | grep installed

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface yet. Use with caution in scripts.

apt search linux-image

linux-image-grsec-686-pae/jessie-backports 10~bpo8+1 i386
Linux image meta-package, grsec featureset
linux-image-grsec-i386/jessie-backports 10~bpo8+1 i386
Linux image meta-package, grsec featureset (transition package)

-------->So i should really install a new backport kernel of 32 bits. My guess is that it should be one of the above...

Although if I reinstall bunsenLabs to 64 bits and do all the process described in the other page, everithing should work fine no?

Yes, I think so.

If you want to keep the system you have now then reboot into the 686-pae kernel and use these commands:

sudo apt purge linux-image-amd64
sudo apt install -t jessie-backports linux-image-686-pae

When you reboot again, the default GRUB menu entry should be for kernel 4.7 and this should fix your problems.

what a bloody mess.
instead of reinstalling 64bit from scratch, you installed a 64bit kernel?
and what is grsec, i386, 686-pae all doing there???

i repeat, this is messed up.

given your expertise, i'd say starting from zero is your best option:
https://www.bunsenlabs.org/installation … key-method

and once your through with this, install the newer kernel (just the usual backported kernel, i think it's 4.7, for the same architecture you installed) as outlined in

That is the output of `apt search linux-image` and does not display what is installed locally.

You can see from the `ls /boot` output that the only kernels installed are the stock amd64 & 686-pae versions, once the amd64 variant is removed and the backported 686-pae is in place then the OP's system should work.

I would still recommend switching to 64-bit though, even with 2GiB of RAM, primarily because of the enhanced security offered by the increased bitness (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Address_s … domization & https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Position-independent_code).

Re: [SOLVED] Video problem, Intel

Hello!

One last thing I promise!

Output
It seems that video works well now and everything looks correct. 32 bit Kernel 4.7 is the default now. Nevertheless, my wifi stopped working (works fine with the old kernel),
so cant verify the online video.

Also, you guys conviced me. I'll reinstall bunsen 64bit. Nevertheless cant do it right now as I have deadlines for works soon smile So Ill tell you guys of the happy ending in another ocasion.

Wifi
The crazy adventures of Mr/Mrs Wificard

I have always had problems with the wifi. However I solved them by downlading the firmware
for my wifi (firmware-iwlwifi_0.43_all.deb) And from time to time when it decides
to stop working so I just reinstall the firmware.

Hovewer, with the new kernel this doesnt work... Looks like the wifi firmware that I downloaded isnt compatible somehow...

While booting  this error comes up

Error:
firmware: fail to load iwlwifi-3160-17.uc
firmware: fail to load iwlwifi-3160-16.uc

lspci | grep -i network

01:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 (rev 83)

Is there somewhere were i can get a backport-kernel wifi firmware?

ls /boot
I'll drop this here to clear things up

config-3.16.0-4-amd64
config-4.7.0-0.bpo.1-686-pae

Re: [SOLVED] Video problem, Intel

Hello!!!

Well everything works fine now!! Hurray!! I am very gratefull of the help you all have given me. It is indeed a very warm and cosy place this BunsenLabs. It is encouraging to see how comunity led proyects rise (I`m not saing this just because you helped me) and make their own way smile

I'll try and see if i can lend a hand somewhere arround here to give back of this awsomess you have showed me:)

Lots of hugs!

Re: [SOLVED] Video problem, Intel

*************************************************SOLUTION***************************************************

Problem

Video doenst work properly

This problem is aparently related to new intel hardware.
This example is for a 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx

Diagnostic tools used during the process

1/ lspci -k|grep -iA2 vga
2/ inxi -Gx
3/ lspci -knn
4/lspci -knn | grep -iA2 vga
5/ cat /proc/version
6/ apt-cache policy libegl1-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri
7/ grep menuentry /boot/grub/grub.cfg
8/ ls /boot
9/ ls -l /
10/ cat /proc/cmdline
11/ apt search linux-image | grep installed
12/ apt search linux-image

Process

Before starting, the process is slightly different for 32 bits and 64 bits. People recomend strongly 64 bits if your computer is 64 bits

The video problem is solved by installing a newer kernel, a backports-version kernel. Also, install privative intel drivers and update and install "mesa."

To Do list  wrote:

1/ Install xserver-xorg intel driver
2/ Install libegl1-mesa libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri
3/ Upgrade to backports kernel

For 64 bits:
https://forums.bunsenlabs.org/viewtopic.php?id=1185

For 32 bits is the same process but, you have to install another image:

sudo apt install -t jessie-backports linux-image-686-pae

(insted of the amd64 one)

It is fairly well explained in the thred anyway.

It should be clarified that the mesa and xserver-xorg-video-intel packages are already installed, they need to be upgraded to the jessie-backports versions, along with any firmware packages you have installed.  You can get a list of firmware packages and their status with

apt-cache policy firmware*

Though some, like firmware-linux-nonfree, are metapackages and will pull in a lot of those others automatically.

The x5-E8000 graphics are some sort of new-generation Atom: http://ark.intel.com/products/92124/Int … o-2_00-GHz

so I couldn't figure out if they are like Broadwell or Skylake. From error messages when running the 4.8 kernel, I know that the current firmware packages in jessie-backports are missing some firmware for 7th generation Intel chips such as Kabylake coming out now (Skylake is 6th generation, as in an i5-6200U)
