Greetings to everybody, I tried to update my openmadriva installation and got kernel update to 4.7.3, when I tried to boot in this new kernel my screen showed several small desktop spaces, in other words, my display is divided and showing repeated screens.
I can attach a picture of my screen. I have not found any help on this topic.
My Graphics card is an Intel Corporation Mobile 4 series. Any help will be welcome!
Thank you raphael for the reply. I can boot the old kernel, and I could load the graphics mode as usual, however, something has happened that I can only get a text console. I login and try to run startx, and sometimes I get a red screen with two terminals. As root I can run startx and from the red screen using one of the terminals, I run starkde and got the system running, but obviously it is not a solution.
Apparently the new kernel is not loading the intel graphics driver correctly, or there is a driver that should be blacklisted I am really puzzled by this problem.
I have been a Mandriva and openmandriva user since the beginning and it is really annoying that this kind of weird things make me change my OS, but I really need to keep working and I need my system ready.
Thank you again Luca. I was planning to write the issue tonight, but given
you expertise and your excellent English maybe it would be better if you do
it so everybody understands and luckily give a clue on what is going on
with my graphics card and kernel 4.7.3.
Thank you very much for the feedback adelson.oliveira, I have to say that
this is the first time I see this kind of issue with an intel graphics
card. I tried to update again my system in order to check if the new intel
graphics driver fix the problem but no luck.
This doesn’t mean anything to me. I may have a computer with same graphics as yours but can’t tell without accurate information. If you would please be so kind to post the information Raphael asked for it would help us to help you.
