XFree86 does not "find device" for a i915 chipset using the i810 driver
Dear Debian people,
I can not get my XFree86 to work with the i810 driver, and tried for
hours with various Google-based tips, so now I ask you.
Problem: Only the VESA driver loads, and I can only work at 1024x768,
while my LCD screen is a 1280x1024.
X does not start when I try to use the i810 driver. At the end of the
error log it says "Device not found".
I have a relatively standard computer - a Fujitsu-Siemens P4-PC, with an
integrated i82915 graphics card.
The card is detected by lspci:
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation
82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family Graphics Controller (rev 04)
It is correctly detected during startup:
Linux agpgart interface v0.101 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected an Intel 915G Chipset.
agpgart: Detected 7932K stolen memory.
agpgart: AGP aperture is 256M @ 0xe0000000
and lsmod gives:
intel_agp 24092 1
agpgart 35560 1 intel_agp
In the XF86Config-4 file I try to use "i810" driver, but it does not
work. Only the "Vesa" driver works.
Identifier "Generic Video Card"
Identifier "Intel Integrated Video"
I have tried to also specify the BusID, but it made no difference.
uname -a says:
Linux gilbert 2.6.12-1-686 #1 Tue Sep 6 15:10:40 UTC 2005 i686 GNU/Linux
I use the "unstable" branch, and I have had this problem ever since I
first installed the system in March 2005.
Does anyone have any tips on how to proceed?
What else should I try?
