Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

What is your coreboot config that you use when you run: make nconfig In addition, was wondering if you Phonics or anyone has a guide/tutorial for patching i915 or a driver in general? I've looked online and haven't found a tutorial that I found accessible. I have a basic understanding of GNU/Linux ...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

That would be awesome. I cannot find it in the patches from the past week on review.coreboot.org. If someone a link it it can they post it here? I would like to help test that once it is available. Has there been any updates about this patch being made available and or released? I've looked around ...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Do i get it right that you got display in both bios and linux? What's your i915 patch? Is it necessary to get the picture in linux? Yep :D it's FHD from BIOS to desktop. I use GRUB as a primary payload but tested with Seabios and that works as well. The patch was not necessary to get FHD picture in...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Got impatient and looked at libgfxinit's build process. Based on the tweet I assumed it must have been a small change in the Kconfig, and sure enough, one line. Still patching i915 in linux, but some innocuous pre-init errors are now gone. I had coreboot going with native graphics initialization at ...

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Thank you nitrocaster for your hard work! After looking at the 1366x768 screen for years on my X230, it's a whole new machine... Is there a patch for coreboot to allow native graphics, or graphics at all? Using a GRUB payload and it boots up with a black screen and backlight. Once Linux loads, every...
