On an up to date sid box
/usr/share/doc/xfree86-common/changelog.Debian.gz isn't very talkative
on intel i82915G. What current support 2D/3D can one have using the
current sarge/sid Xfree server for this chipset ?
FYI, this chipset is used in professional desktop sold lately (Dell
Optiplex Gx280, HP/Compaq 7000 series).
XFree86 does not support this, only X.Org.
- On a technical point of view, is backporting the driver from X.org to
Debian X doable ?
- If it is backported, will it hit sarge ?
- in  Branden called for porter and in  he more or less called for
tester (regression etc...)
I have just checked and I've access to i810E/i815/i845G/i855GM/i865G and
i915G graphics cards at work. If someone from this list is willing to do
the porting, I'm willing to do the regression tests on thoses boxes.
I do feel this driver is important to get in, because the mobo using
this chipset have been hitting the professional market for the last
couple of month...
