XFree86 Hardware Issue - Intel i1810


I have an HP Pavilion 8650C with a i810 onboard Intel graphics card. The card has worked on past systems. I have the latest XFree86 Debian Sarge provides. I am using the

Can someone help me? I included my glxinfo, dmesg, and XFree86Config-4 snippets below.

Code:
glxinfo | grep direct
direct rendering: No
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa GLX Indirect
Here is my dmesg:

Code:
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
[drm] AGP 0.99 Aperture @ 0xf8000000 64MB
[drm] Initialized i810 1.2.1 20020211 on minor 0
[drm:i810_unlock] *ERROR* Process 1294 using kernel context 0

Here are snippets from XFree86Config-4 that I think are relevant:

Code:
Section "Module"
        Load    "GLcore"
        Load    "bitmap"
        Load    "dbe"
        Load    "ddc"
        Load    "dri"
        Load    "extmod"
        Load    "freetype"
        Load    "glx"
        Load    "int10"
        Load    "record"
        Load    "speedo"
        Load    "type1"
        Load    "vbe"
EndSection
Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Generic Video Card"
        Driver          "i810"
EndSection
Code:

For me dri didn't work with i810 until I set aside enough memory for it. You can probably get by with less than this though:

Code:
Section "Module"
 Load  "ddc"  # ddc probing of monitor
 Load  "GLcore"
 Load  "dbe"
 Load  "dri"
 Load  "extmod"
 Load  "glx"
 Load  "bitmap" # bitmap-fonts
 Load  "speedo"
 Load  "type1"
 Load  "freetype"
 Load  "record"
EndSection

Section "Device"
 Identifier	"Card0"
 Driver	"i810"
 VendorName	"All"
 BoardName	"All"
 VideoRam	 16384
EndSection

Section "DRI"
 Mode 0666
EndSection

Setting aside some memory (16384) did it. I have direct rendering now. Before, as you can see, there was not parameter for VideoRam in my config file.

Thank you both for you suggestions.
