[SOLVED] How to install Sandy Bridge HD 3000 drivers

Postby rovitotv » 2012/01/13 04:30:36

Greetings,
I most likely am doing something dumb but I can't seem to get the new Intel HD 3000 drivers installed mentioned in this post:
Intel Driver Problem Post

I have a new computer (HP DM1Z-4050) with a i3 Sandy Bridge CPU, everything is working under CentOS except for video. In order for the computer to boot and produce video I have to use the kernel parameter nomodeset. Then my external monitor hooked to VGA port does not function. I have the latest version of CentOS installed 6.2. After looking around the forum I attempted to install the drivers listed in the above post. I got the xorg-x11-drv-intel installed with the command:
Code: Select all
yum --enablerepo=elrepo-testing xorg-x11-drv-intel


But I was having trouble with the MESA package, this command fails:
Code: Select all
yum --enablerepo=elrepo-testing --enablerepo=elrepo install mesa


So then I started installing each package listed on the mesa page khrplatform-devel installed fine but then the next package mesa-dri-drivers failed to install with this error

Code: Select all
Error: Package: mesa-dri-drivers-7.11-12.1.el6.elrepo.x86_64 (elrepo-testing)
           Requires: libLLVM-2.8.so()(64bit)


Then I tried to install the libs for LLVM with this command and it failed
Code: Select all
yum --enablerepo=elrepo install llvm-libs


I am not sure why yum is not finding the dependencies. Any ideas on how to install the latest MESA so I can enjoy 3D and hopefully have an external monitor? Thanks for the support.

You missed the fine print on the Mesa web page where it says: "It is necessary to enable the EPEL repo to satisfy a dependency for llvm-libs. Please report any problems in the bug-tracking system."

ELRepo is considering whether to carry the package for llvm-libs in the repo to avoid this, but it carries a lot of baggage as the llvm SRPM builds a bunch of other packages as well. A bug report on this might stimulate some more thought on it. :-)

Reports on your experience with the testing packages on the ELRepo list would also be appreciated.

pschaff,
That worked!!!! Thanks for the quick reply, I did indeed miss adding the EPEL repository. So I got everything installed but it still doesn't work, I get a blank screen. I suspect that this CPU is too new to be supported. No problem I can boot with nomodeset and wait until the CPU is supported.

You are welcome. Thanks for the report. Added a note on nomodeset use to the ELRepo pages.
