solved: etch 965Q video 16:10
I solved the 16:10/965Q problem by the following steps:
1. Rebuild the intel-agp module with intel-agp.c merged with the 18.104.22.168
version of kernel.org to get the needed memory.
2. Build the current (or at least version 2.2) of drm. This is needed by the
current i810 driver. You find the sources here:
3. For the 16:10 mode I need the modesetting driver (i810 from unstable), but
it does not work on my machine (965Q graphic). It reports the chipset, but I
have no signal (display goes directly into power save mode). So I build the
current version of the i810 driver from the following sources:
$ git-clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/git/xorg/driver/xf86-video-intel
git checkout modesetting

Note: The mentioned compiling problem should be solved in the current version
(i830.h has the defines). But I had still a compile error in one c file. The
reason was a missing include of i830.h (it was in the code, but in comments).
This changes are very 'local'. I have updated neither the kernel nor X11. And
the changes concern 'only' the intel/amd platforms. So I hope to see the
updated modules for supporting the popular 965 chipset in etch (or at least
in sid or etch backports) someday.
