Happens here. vesa or fbdev both work quite OK.
However, this laptop has dual-graphics (radeon being the other one)
and none of cards is supported now in Debian (I don't blame debian here).
this is Dell Latitude 3540, i5-4200U, intel HD 4400 (i945?) graphics...
Does anyone out there know where could I get the latest xorg driver
that supports HSWULT?
I just installed Debian Wheezy 7.6.0 on an Intel NUC Core i5 with
similar Haswell hardware. By default I got the vesa driver which
worked okay. But for testing I then installed the backports Linux
3.14 kernel to enable the intel driver. (Everything worked fine at
that point except for the "default" sound controller configuration
which I am still working through. I can play sound by manually
selecting the specific sound hardware.)
Try installing the backports kernel. I expect that will get you going
with the current "intel" video driver.
no, the card required newer xorg driver which is not in backports yet.
I have backports kernel for the wireless card support, but xorg driver is
Additionally you may need to install firmware too. For example on
your laptop you might need firmware-iwlwifi or other firmware bundle.
This is not necessarily a recommendation but rather a reminder that
you may need additional firmware installed for particular hardware on
apt-get install -t wheezy-backports firmware-iwlwifi
I also have firmware-realtek for the ethernet, although it works without,
and after loading this card doesn't work in windows (needs turning off/on).
