I have a major issue on my Dell Latitude D400 (Centrino, Intel onboard video).
First when i boot into Haiku at the end of the loading bar (the little icons who pop up) i must press the key to switch to an external display to get into the Haiku desktop. (Fn + F8)
And when i am on the Haiku desktop, the screen is not centered. And the top of the screen shows a thumbnails : 4 screens which show the boot loading…
I try to change the resolution but it did nothing. I also tried the safe video mode but it still the same. The driver seems to be correctly installed because it is Intel Accelerate driver.
Anyone have a clue ?
Sorry for my poor English.
which version are you attempting to boot ?
Alpha 2? Try a haiku nightly image:
I think you’re having a graphics issue. You must choose both: fail-safe video + a resolution. One or the other by itself may not work properly.
Yes it is R1/Alpha 2 Rev 36769.
I use the fail-safe mode (VESA) and i choose the resolution and it works ! Thanks a lot !
So the issue seems to be caused by the Intel Extreme Graphics driver (i855g).
By the way do you know how i can set the fail safe mode by default on boot ?
I will play around to see if sound, ethernet and wifi are detected.
you should try a nightly, about 3 weeks ago I saw some commit regarding the intel drivers.
To set VESA mode you create a vesa text file. Or you can just delete the intel_extreme driver and that will force VESA mode instead when booting.
My onboard Intel 945G had issues with Alpha 2. A bug was fixed later on and the Intel driver was working for me in the nightly.
