[Solved] Flash Video displaying incorrectly on Intel D865GLC

Post#1 by Pyriana » 25 May 2013, 18:15

I'm not exactly sure what's wrong, but I believe it's a video driver issue. I'm trying to get the kiosk working on a slew of old computers running the D865GLC motherboard (with onboard intel graphics card) and on my prototype, the flash videos are half width and green, with the other half of where the video should be just "snow".

I found a driver here if a Red Hat version would be compatible. I'm not familiar enough with linux to know if it would be. Is this just something I need to tweak in the Kiosk iso or do I have to actually install these drivers, or could it be something else entirely?

Thanks in advance.

hello Pyriana,

Some people reported that latest flash wont work with older CPU's as SSE2 instructions are missing.
please boot any linux and post the output of following command:

Code: Select all

cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep sse2
btw: I'll prepare 005-flash_legacy-extension.xzm for older PC's. this module will be downloadable through the wizard for Kiosk 2.0.3 which will be released on Monday.

thanks

Thanks for the quick response. Here's the results of the cat.

Code: Select all

mint@mint ~ $ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep sse2

your CPU supports SSE2 so it's probably GPU fault as you suggested.
does the the corruption happen on the flash animations only or somewhere else as well?

just in case please try 'flash_legacy':
- download the ISO from our Kiosk download page and unpack somewhere
- download flash_legacy from here:
http://ponce.cc/porteus/i486/packages/k ... ension.xzm
- move 005-flash_legacy-extension.xzm to the /porteus/base folder
- create new ISO with /porteus/make_iso.sh command

also (while on Mint) - please show me output of 'lspci -knn' command and upload /var/log/Xorg.0.log to pastebin.com so i can have a look on it.

thanks

And here is the pastebin.

It will be a bit before I can try the legacy flash drivers on this computer. I've got a couple others I'm working on that are higher priority. Hopefully I might be able to get to them tonight, but I don't know for sure.

Edit: I was able to try the legacy flash module. Exact same issue, half width and green. So it's definitely looking like video drivers. The sound didn't work either, but that could be the legacy flash module or something else, I don't know. I do know that the video works fine in mint 10, and windows xp pro.

hi Pyriana,

thanks for an update.
from linked Xorg.0.log i could find that Mint is using older acceleration method (UXA) which is probably more suitable for older chipsets.
please save these settings as /porteus/rootcopy/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-uxa.conf

Code: Select all

Section "Device"
   Identifier "Intel 945GME GPU"
   Driver "intel"
   Option "AccelMethod" "UXA"
EndSection
please change 'Intel 945GME GPU' to match identifier of your GPU. you can get this value from /etc/X11/xorg.conf' (if this file does not exist then please switch to text mode and run 'X -configure' and then check /root/Xorg.conf.new)
please create new ISO and try again.

other idea is to use older intel driver from here:
http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.slackw ... i486-1.txz
please unpack content of this package to /porteus/rootcopy and create new ISO.

let us know if any of above advices helped.

btw: would be good if you could list packages and their versions used on Mint (flashplayer, xorg-server, xf86-video-intel).
btw2: you could remove flash modules completely and check if watching videos on youtube is possible (and if you have a sound). sample:

So switching to the older settings seemed to work. My video card in mint was called Card0 under identifiers lol. Weird.

Anyways, I really appreciate all the help and thanks a lot. Definitely hit a lot of stumbling blocks along the way.

Now trying to get it imaged over to a drive so it can be spread to multiple computers in a mostly "non removeable" way.

Marking this as solved.
