I have just come across this post as I have been away for a few days. Also
from the snippets I have, I'm not 100% sure of what its about. However there
is enough to suggest it is similar to my configuration.
I have a core 2 duo in an Intel motherboard with the 965G chipset.
IN order to get the i810 driver to work I have to
a) Install a kernel later than 2.6.19-rc2 (So I I built one using the debian
configuration using make-kpkg)
b) There is a bug in the code that prevents video working. The fix was put
into the git repository for the driver about 2 weeks ago. I could build this
from source to install, but at the moment I can't be bothered and am waiting
for the debian package to catch up.
