[SOLVED] Intel driver is not loading.

Hello,

I just got a new laptop and finally put Arch on it. I have to use "nomodeset" to see anything (Putting the intel_agp and i915 modules in the initramfs does not work, nor does the SVIDEO option.) and I installed xorg and xf86-video-intel, and ran startx, and it failed to run.

Below are my Xorg.log.0 and lspci -k outputs.

As you can see, i915 is not loaded for the VGA controller, even though it should be. I do a modprobe i915, in case for whatever reason udev can't seem to do it, run lspci -k and nothing changes. dmesg doesn't even seem to acknowledge that I did anything.

Does the i915 driver not support this chipset? That seems highly unlikely.

Re: [SOLVED] Intel driver is not loading.

My computer on my signature is newer than yours and its supported.
I guess there is a backlight issue on your computer. try removing nomodeset and append

acpi_backlight=vendor

to your kernel comand line. Tell us what u see.

Re: [SOLVED] Intel driver is not loading.

It turns out it is a backlight issue (I discovered this before coming onto this post to reply.) I set that parameter like you suggested and that cleared up the rest of the issue!

Seems odd to me that the driver would default to outright disabling its backlight. You get a cookie.

Re: [SOLVED] Intel driver is not loading.

Thank you hadron123 for the solution, it works on my Lenovo G580 (2189). I couldn't even boot the installation media without this option
