Not able to make Intel Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express (rev 03) work with X 6.8.2


I've bought new Dell Inspiron 2200 (I had to buy it when it was just $600)
notebook, which has

Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev

graphic card (see attached output of lspci -v). I have tried to make it work
with vanilla Debian/Sarge (using XFree86 4.3.0.dfsg.1-12.0.1 0), but when
it didn't work I have now installed Xorg packages with 6.8.2-10debian1 from
<http://neo.wh-stuttgart.de sarge/xorg> and now I am able to have 1024x768
with VESA driver (see attached output of xdpyinfo and glxinfo), which is
usable but 61Hz still is not that pleasant as I would love to have and the
display is visibly blinking. Is it possible to make this notebook work with
native i810 drivers?

I tried attached xorg.conf, but when I tried to start it, although it seems
that there is something going on when I run '/etc/init.d/kdm restart' (like
switching display to another mode or something), but the result is that I
get completely black display. I mean, it is really black, not blank, with
slightly lighter share of gray than when the display is switched off.

I do not see any clue in the attached Xorg.0.log -- apparently I do not have
DRI (why, I have compiled in the kernel all required modules and it seems
that they are correctly loaded; see also attached), but it shouldn't be
fatal, should it?

Does anybody see what I am doing wrong? Did anybody make Dell Inspiron 2200
work with Xorg?

Thanks a lot for any advice,
