Description S B 2008-12-29 12:39:52 UTC
TV-out is not supported on 82852/855GM my Intel graphics card on Linux (specifically, I'm using Ubuntu 8.10). VGA and S-video both do not work even for simple cloning no matter how much is done to edit the xorg.conf. I would also like to point out that I have had several other problems with my graphics card that I feel should be addressed. When booting my computer (it is a laptop), I have to boot in recovery mode and then resume normal boot. If I boot as normal, my monitor will not show the splash screen and will eventually begin acting really strange (it's a little different every time, but often there are lots of squiggly lines and the like). Several times the screen has slowly snowed over, which, strangely enough, was a problem I had on another laptop with completely different specs as well. The one other problem I am having is much more minor than the others and it is simply that switching between virtual consoles and Ctrl+Alt+Backspace can be flaky, and I may have to restart the computer in order to see my main desktop again. If it matters, I am using a Compal CY27 laptop, which seems to be a very obscure model, so I am having some trouble finding support. In any case, I want to be sure that something is being done to address this bug and that it's not going to go unfixed. I really don't want to go back to dual-boot with a bulky Windows partition sitting on my hard drive. If this is going to Jin Gordon, I think I've already talked with you a bit about this, but nothing was ever conclusive, so I thought I would file a bug report to be certain something is being done about this.

Please don't mess up several issues into one - one bug, one issue. Let's focused on the bug title says - TV output doesn't work. Please provide necessary information as requested in http://intellinuxgraphics.org/how_to_report_bug.html. We are not a tech support hotline, so we will try but I have to let you know that fix is not garanteed, given the HW is becoming legacy. thanks.

I have no done much bug reporting in the past, so I apologize for not being precisely sure what to do. I guess it is most likely not possible that the issues are related anyway. I'll try to make sure I give you all the information suggested in that link: System architecture > i686 Kernel version > 2.6.27-8-generic Not sure about xf86-video-intel/xserver/mesa/drm version...don't really no how to find that. All the other information has already been given or I'll try to attach it in a minute.

Created attachment 21558 [details] xorg.conf, xorg.0.log, dmesg, xrandr --verbose Some information that may be pertinent. I apologize if it's not given in the format that it usually is.

I highly suspect this is a dup with bug#12882. Let Zhenyu to confirm.
