  1. I810 driver problem!!!!

    Hi all,
    I have a problem, with a i810 intel driver and 1440x900 resolution, on
    a Slackware Linux 12.0 with a 2.2.22 kernel and X0rg7.1. I want to
    set
    my resolution to 1440x900 on my monitor (Hannstar HSD190MGW1), but the
    screen not working good (the screen remain black).
    The graphic card is right recognized (from a lspci output), and my
    Xorg.log doesn't report any relevant messages or errors, except:

    "I810(0): BIOS call 0x5f05 not supported, setting refresh with VBE 3
    method."

    Any one can help me?

    Regards

    Loris

    ^^^^^^

    I hope that's a typo.

    Do you have 915resolution installed? The Intel video BIOS often needs
    patching to cope with widescreen modes, and 915resolution allows you to do
    this.

    This what it supports without patch (both i810 and 1825 use i810
    driver, as far as I know) :

    http://support.intel.com/support/gra.../cs-009126.htm

    1440x900 is not supported without patch.

    Typo... ment "both i810 and i815 use i810 driver, as far as I know".

    No, you won't see it there. That's why you're using 915resolution.


    This is what you see:

    root@jowsbox:/home/jow# 915resolution -l
    Intel 800/900 Series VBIOS Hack : version 0.5.3

    Chipset: 915G
    BIOS: TYPE 1
    Mode Table Offset: $C0000 + $269
    Mode Table Entries: 27

    Mode 30 : 640x480, 8 bits/pixel
    Mode 32 : 800x600, 8 bits/pixel
    Mode 34 : 1024x768, 8 bits/pixel
    Mode 38 : 1680x1050, 8 bits/pixel
    Mode 3a : 1600x1200, 8 bits/pixel
    Mode 3c : 1920x1440, 8 bits/pixel
    Mode 41 : 640x480, 16 bits/pixel
    Mode 43 : 800x600, 16 bits/pixel
    Mode 45 : 1024x768, 16 bits/pixel
    Mode 49 : 1680x1050, 16 bits/pixel
    Mode 4b : 1600x1200, 16 bits/pixel
    Mode 4d : 1920x1440, 16 bits/pixel
    Mode 50 : 640x480, 32 bits/pixel
    Mode 52 : 800x600, 32 bits/pixel
    Mode 54 : 1024x768, 32 bits/pixel
    Mode 58 : 1680x1050, 32 bits/pixel
    Mode 5a : 1600x1200, 32 bits/pixel
    Mode 5c : 1920x1440, 32 bits/pixel
    root@jowsbox:/home/jow#


    Pick a resolution off the list that you're not using. Let's say you're
    not going to use 1680x1050. You pick the mode and put in the resolution
    you want in that mode. so the command would be:

    915resolution 38 1440 900

    When you run 915resolution -l again you'll see it there.
