Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

Intel HD Graphics 520 - 3D acceleration

Postby rgr » 2016-09-23 10:04

Hello everyone.

I bought new laptop computer HP model ProBook 450 G3. From some days I'm configuring it. I ran bluetooth, wireless card, SD card reader and sound. Unfortunately I can't run hardware video rendering, I have only software rendering. I don't have animation in Gnome desktop environment, and when I switch to Cinnamon I have notice that the video rendering is software only.

Inside my laptop is installed Intel Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-6200U, I found information that the procesor has Intel HD Graphics 520.

I installed Debian Jessie 8.6 from netinstall CD witch restricted drivers (http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unoff ... -firmware/), then I instaled the following files:

First:

Code: Select all
robert@rpg:/proc$ dpkg -l | grep firmware

Next, I instaled Linux kernel:
Code: Select all
robert@rpg:/proc$ uname -r
4.6.0-0.bpo.1-amd64


These files I installed from jessie-backports:

Below my sources.list
Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.6.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20160917-14:21]/ jessie contrib main non-free
# deb cdrom:[Debian GNU/Linux 8.6.0 _Jessie_ - Official amd64 NETINST Binary-1 20160917-14:21]/ jessie contrib main non-free

deb http://ftp.pl.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.pl.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

# jessie-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.pl.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.pl.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main contrib non-free

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main contrib non-free

deb http://apt.insynchq.com/debian jessie non-free contribrobert@rpg:/proc$


After that, during botting process I had below notice:

Code: Select all
failed to load iwlwifi-7265D-21 / 20 / 19 / 18 / 17.ucode (-2)
failed to load rtl_nic/rtl8168h-2.fw (-2)


Then I dowloaded these filles from (http://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel ... git/about/)
and, put into "/lib/firmware/" directory.

Unfortunately the video rendering is still software only - no 3D ?

What am I doing wrong / what I do not know ?

Thank in advance for any information.

Regards.
Robert.

Apparently the same graphics hardware seems to work well in Stretch: https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebia ... 60/stretch

Possibly installing the updated mesa packages from jessie-backports would help?

Thanks for answer.
In the meantime I tried with pinpriority and unstable repository. I upgraded kernel, xserver and mesa to newest version from unstable repository but it didn't work :(.
I gave up. I reinstalled system, replaced repository to testing release and upgraded Debian to testing. Finally hardware video rendering it's working fine, 3D effects are OK in Gnome, and Cinnamon stopped inform that worked in software rendering mode.

I would rather working in the stable software branch witch backports but I not cope with.

I have an idea where I did mistake. I think that I should first upgraded kernel and then installed rest of packets, I did the reverse order - first I installed all packets then upgraded kernel.

But I do not have the strength to try again

Yes, I know that link, and I know how use backports repository, but it's not working in my laptop. Unfortunately I don't know why.

Is it using the intel or the modesetting driver for the graphics in Stretch? (use "lspci -k" command)

We're trying a community respin of the Jessie-based MX 15 with backported updates to address new hardware problems like yours--( sometimes I come up with an original idea :wink: ) I wonder how the Live session would work on your machine. If it works, at least we know it's possible to stick with stable Debian + some backports and get it working: http://forum.mepiscommunity.org/viewtop ... 00&t=40499 It doesn't have GNOME, but the output of "inxi -F" should let us know about the graphics.

Stretch just added some new firmware packages, too. I don't think they are in the respin, but they are in the MX 15 test repo.

We know full well how to get 3D working on Skylake hardware now, so I have to suspect you're a spammer digging up 3 yr old dead threads.
