Debian on ACER TM 290 - X screen problem
it seems that I'm the only one in the world, with
access to the Net, that's not able make X work with
the Intel 810 graphics chip on board of the Acer
Travelmate 290. I'm beginning to feel stupid. :-/
I've problems with the modem too, but other hardware
(sound card, eth card and external floppy disk drive)
I've found some pages  but I've followed the
advices with no luck.
I'm using Debian 3.0 (stable), with X packages
downloaded in the last 15 days from debian.org.
I've rebuilt the Linux kernel with the configuration
in  (ACPI, agpgart, DRM, i810-i830), and configured
# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
and the result is in . The Device section is:
When running "startx" I see the screen going blank
like on normal X startup, but then the console is
back and I see the error:
(II) I810: Driver for Intel i810 chipset: i810, \
i810-dc100, i819e, i815
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance \
(BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:
no screens found
if I change "PCI:0:02:00" to "PCI:00:02:01" the error
...No matching Device section for instance \
it is trying to humiliate me... :(
The output of "lspci" is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp.: \
Unknown device 3584 (rev 02)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intep Corp.: \
Unknown device 3582 (rev 02)
and I guess that the controller of the LCD screen is
the 02.0 one.
I was not able to make xserver-vga16 work either,
I always get errors for unsupported video modes.
This is not Debian-specific, but I hope that someone
can help me. Thank You in advance.
