Get full resolution with Intel HD graphics
« on: October 02, 2017, 11:14:28 PM »
I have Tiny Core 8.2 installed on my Dell XPS 13 L321X, which has Intel HD 3000 graphics. Native resolution is 1920 x 1080 or 1200, but I can only get (at most) 1024 x x768. I have Xorg 7.7 with xf86-video-intel.tcz installed. XVesa give the same results. Lxrandr shows only 1024 x 768 or 800 x 600.

Is there an extension I'm missing, or is it something else?

Did you try to change the Xvesa resolution with xsetup.sh?

Did you try using an Xorg.conf snippet to set the resolution with Xorg-7.7?

Have you tried the modesetting driver with Xorg-7.7 (do not load the xf86-video-intel extension)?

(note also that the xf86-video-intel extension requires the graphics-KERNEL extension)

In Xvesa, xsetup.sh returns 800x600 and 1024x768. (I was incorrect about the native resolution; it is 1366x768, not 1920xanything)

This xorg.conf snippet:
Code: (bash) [Select]
Section "Monitor"
Identifier   "Monitor0"
VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName    "Monitor Model"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device     "Card0"
Monitor    "Monitor0"
SubSection "Display"
Viewport   0 0
Depth     24
Modes=    1366x768
EndSubSection
EndSection
Results in a Failed waiting for X error.

I can't find a driver for the Intel HD 3000 device. Is there one?

Might (I haven't tried it yet) f86-video-intel + graphics-KERNEL work?

Yes, that combo is the driver for your Intel card.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

The graphics-KERNEL extension is a dep of the xf86-video-intel extension and thus should be loaded automatically when xf86-video-intel is loaded.

Note that loading the graphics-KERNEL extension whilst in an X session will probably freeze your machine.
