Intel NUC10i3 Graphics not working

Postby vttom » 2020-05-18 16:44

I just got my hands on an Intel NUC10i3 (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en ... i3fnk.html). Installed the latest Debian stable release. I knew going-in that the on-board Ethernet adapter would not work out-of-the box, but was able to download and build the driver package from Intel and that's now working great.

However, I was surprised to find that the graphics adapter is not working with X. Funnily enough, grub has no trouble showing the boot selection screen at full 2560x1440 resolution. But when X starts up via gdm3, it's in a super low-resolution mode (like 640x480 VGA). When I log in and go into display settings I get see "Unrecognized display" and there is no way to bump the resolution.

I tried uninstalling the video-intel package, and now I get no GUI at all. I had to switch the console login mode.

Is there some info from any of my log files that would be helpful in debugging?

I am not afraid to run make install to build a new video driver if I have to. But it sounds like the video-intel driver is deprecated, and Xorg's "modesetting" fall-back should work.

10th generation Intel is not supported by Debian buster's stock kernel. I'm not sure if the buster-backports kernel would work but there is a [FAQ] guide in the HowTo section.

Yeah. It occurred to me I really ought to try out the testing release (bullseye). So did the upgrade and now everything is working just peachy.

Testing is a development branch and so is likely to break repeatedly. Good luck.

Intel 10th gen is supported by the backports kernel and firmware, but I have forgotten if it needs a newer Mesa.
