#12007 closed bug (duplicate)

I have to use fail-safe video mode on my i7-4700MQ / Intel HD 4600 graphics

Description

I have a System76 Gazelle Pro laptop which has a i7-4700MQ CPU with Intel HD 4600 integrated graphics. To successfully boot 49058 GCC2 hybrid I have to use fail-safe graphics mode (and blacklist the iprowifi4965 driver).

I do not need to use fail-safe video mode when I boot alpha4.1 on this laptop but that version doesn't support my ethernet chipset whereas recent nightlies do.

I've attached a syslog took from booting 49058 on my i7-4700MQ / HD 4600 without fail-safe video enabled.

When Haiku booted on this attempt, the top-half of the screen was a mainly blue, distorted mess with some icons below it whilst the bottom half of the screen was black. Sometimes I don't see anything at all.

I've also attached a listdev dump.

I have both Intel HD 4600 graphics and Intel 2230 wifi so in order to boot current nightlies without using safe mode I have to have the following in /boot/system/settings/packages:

Package haiku {

EntryBlacklist {

add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/iprowifi4965 add-ons/kernel/drivers/bin/intel_extreme

}

}

Isn't this the same as ticket #11180?

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by luroh

Similar symptom perhaps but different device.

comment:7 Changed 4 years ago by danboid

Just in case anyone else has the same laptop, I should also note that I had to uncomment the lines

apm true disable_ioapic true

in /boot/home/config/settings/kernel/drivers/kernel to get Haiku to boot reliably.

Humdinger:

Thats an interesting workaround although you'd logically expect it to do nothing.

From what I was told on IRC, using fail-safe video mode doesn't make much difference anyway. Using the driver apparently just gives you more resolutions to pick from in some cases. As it stands I only ever use 1920x1080 and thats the res I get in fail-safe mode so I'm happy enough.

Your workaround does sound easier than creating a packages file but I had to do that anyway to blacklist the i4965 driver.

Humdinger:

I can confirm your workaround does the trick after just having done a reinstall and tried it out. Haiku supports my wifi chipset now so I no longer need to blacklist any package files.

I wonder if that workaround will also work on Intel HD4000 integrated graphics? I'll give it a try tonight after work and report back.

And!?

...and it didn't make any difference whatsoever.
