    Default Graphics problem intel corp 82852

    Hi. I am new to open suse and have installed 13.1 on my ibm r50e. I really like it and want to use it permanently but have a problem. In a normal boot up if I watch bbc iplayer they the image does not open properly and remains a tiny discoloured splodge on screen. If I boot into recovery mode all is fine and iplayer works fine. How can I get I get get the graphics to work on a normal boot please. I am pretty new to linux so please keep any advice simple. Thanks.

    First of all, you should install all updates, especially when using the intel driver.
    Run YaST->Online Updates for that, or Apper, or gnome-packagekit, or "sudo zypper up" in a terminal window.
    Maybe your problem is even fixed then already?

    Second, you should really provide more information, like at least what Desktop Environment and which browser you are using.

    Do you have the same problem with other websites?

    Maybe you installed some Firefox-Addon that causes your problem?
    Try to disable/uninstall them all.

    This is using Flash.
    Maybe try to disable hardware acceleration in Flash. (right-click on a flash video and select "Settings")

    Have you tried other Webbrowsers?
    At least Konqueror, Opera, Chromium, Epiphany, and Rekonq are available in the standard repos, you can just install them with YaST->Software Management.

    I just tried, and it works fine here with Firefox on an intel 945G.

    can you post the output from a terminal
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2
    but I am almost afraid that your graphics chip is just too old for
    anything fancy like bbc iplayer.
    You could also add some additional info like RAM of the machine, is ther
    a BIOS setting for the RAM assigned to the graphics chip? Maybe
    increasing that also helps to a certain degree.

    Ah I see now that is just flashplayer, thought it is some fancy application.
    Please follow first the advise from wolfi323, if it does not help please
    post also the output I asked for (it shows which kernel module is used
    for your graphics chip).

    Do you use uxa or sna with that card?

    The default, I didn't change any X settings.
    It's SNA according to Xorg.0.log.

    But maybe the OP should try to switch to UXA, see here:
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...eration_method
    If/how good SNA works depends on the actual graphics chip I think.
    But switching off hardware acceleration in Flash should help as well if that's the issue, I guess.

    Since the problem seems to disappear in recovery mode, it's most likely a graphics driver issue...

    There is an ubuntu thread where disabling hardware acceleration did not
    help with flash problems but a switch to uxa with an 8xxxx intel chip,
    that is the reason I ask, I also would simply try it in that situation.
