I install Intel MSDK 2017r3 essential version successfuly on ubuntu 16.04 before. Recently, Ubuntu 16.04 upgrade kernel image to 4.13 with some driver upgrade. Now I use the same step to install it on ubuntu16.04, it is failed, show "the system running at the low-graphic mode" and failed to gnome desktop.
The step is as below:
1. install ubuntu 16.04, use "apt upgrade" to upgrade all driver to latest. (mainly mesa package).
2. install msdk2017r3 following guide.
then "low-graphic mode" will be shown, and failed to GUI. Is there any patches for this issue? Thanks.
Jiandong, Thanks for your advice.
I read this article several month ago, and install MSDK on ubuntu 16.04 successfully before. Just in these days ubuntu upgrade a lot of graphic drivers and kernel version to 4.13, MSDK installation is failed. Following that article, I can not solve this problem. If I missed useful information in that article, please kindly help me to figure out which part is helpful to this problem. Below are some clues that I tried in those days.
I noticed that following drivers are upgraded in latest ubuntu upgrade.
mesa related library upgrade to 17.2.4 (original is 17.0.7)
accordingly, libdrm-common/libdrm-dev upgrade to 2.4.76-1.
It seems mesa library version does not match libva/libdrm in MSDK, that causes "low-graphic mode" issue. My current patch is to force to roll mesa library version back to 17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, that could solve "low-graphic mode" problem.
Can Intel help me to give an official solution for this? Thanks.
