Xorg and Intel 945G problem
I have a Dell GX620 with an integrated Intel 945G graphics chipset, and
I am attempting to run Debian sid amd64 on it. I used 'X -configure' to
create an xorg.conf file, in which it creates the following "Device"
### Available Driver options are:-
### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
### [arg]: arg optional
#Option "NoAccel" # [<bool>]
#Option "SWcursor" # [<bool>]
#Option "ColorKey" # <i>
#Option "CacheLines" # <i>
#Option "Dac6Bit" # [<bool>]
#Option "DRI" # [<bool>]
#Option "NoDDC" # [<bool>]
#Option "ShowCache" # [<bool>]
#Option "XvMCSurfaces" # <i>
#Option "PageFlip" # [<bool>]
VendorName "Intel Corporation"
BoardName "945G Integrated Graphics Controller"
However, when I try to start X using this configuration, I get the
following message and it dies:
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
Googling on this has revealed a variety of issues, but most of them did
not appear to be the cause of this. What seems to be causing this is
the fact that the onboard display is apparently divided into two
ip-3-1-216:~# lspci | grep 'Graphics'
0000:00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 945G/P PCI Express Graphics
Port (rev 02)
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 945G
Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
0000:00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 945G Integrated
Graphics Controller (rev 02)
I tried adding a second "Device" section to the config file and changing
the bus to "PCI:0:2:1" but the result is still the same.
When I was using etch, Xorg worked just fine. I upgraded to sid so I
could install KDE, and that's when Xorg broke. Does anyone have any
ideas about how this can be solved?
