I’m sure most folks are either running on Xeon or a Haswell iCore processor with dedicated Nvidia Gfx but I’ll ask anyway.
I built a PC a few months ago knowing that graphics support might not quite be there yet as I couldn’t stretch to an NVidia card at the time so would be using the integrated HD 630 graphics using modesetting or even VESA if required. I have it currently working with decent performance using the modesetting driver but I have two niggles.
Although sound shows as outputting pcm3 (HDMI) in pavucontrol I have to use the pcm2 (Realtek Chipset) via 3.5mm Jack for audio output. The HDMI audio works under Linux (Ubuntu 16.04).
Looking at /var/log/dmesg I can see that the system actually seems to be aware that it needs a driver for Kabylake but the kernel module is not listed under /boot/kernel/
To be honest I can live with both issues for now. But, as the system is looking for the correctly named .ko I was wondering if Kaby Lake should be supported using the Intel driver.
Anyone else had any luck with a similar setup to:
1x Intel i5 7500
1x 16GB Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX PC4-19200
1x 256GB Samsung SM961 Polaris M.2 NVMe
on an ASRock B250M-HDV motherboard.
