910GML intel chipset and x-video


hello guys
i have a hp pavilion laptop with intel 910GML
running X with i810 as module but i get the following error:
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found

lspci gives me:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/PM/GMS/910GML Express Processor to DRAM Controller (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)

xvinfo:
X-Video Extention version 2.2
screen #0
no adaptors present

kernel 2.6.14
with agpgart compiled as module and the i915 drm modules compiled as module as well

and i want a way to run x with a device which is not vesa so i would be able to use x-video

any suggestions... don't care about DRI, don't want 3d... all i want is x-video so i would be able to run mplayer full screen

I've got the same kind of error as the above poster I think, on my ThinkPad X41, with gentoo. (I have 915GM chipset.)

I got agpgart, intel chipset support, DRM, I810, i915 in kernel(2.6.13).

I've selected i810 as driver in my xorg.conf, with the PCI buss 0:2:0. (also tried 0:2:1 with same result.)

But when I try to launch X I get the errors:
Quote:
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
(EE) No Devices detected.
The one about "PCI:0:2:1" I assume is the external monitor device that I'm not intrested in.
The problem is "No Device detected." I realy can't understand why it's not working.

It runs ok with the "vesa" driver but then video playback is horrible, so it's not an permanent option.

Anyone have any ideas how solve this?

The problem resides in your X.org version. X11 6.8.2 does not support such vga devices. I've managed to make my i900 (i910GML chipset) card working with CVS snapshots of X11 6.8.99.15 and 6.9RC1 (with an experimental ebuild) with i810 driver on Gentoo. It's not 100% yet, but it's quite enough.
If you cant get anything but 6.8.2, you should use "vesa" driver instead. No hardware accel though.

Bubye.

Thank You!

I changed me xorg version from 6.8.2 to CVS snapshots of X11 6.8.99.15 and can now use the i810 driver.

Performance seams pretty poor, but I've seen lots of threads about that problem so I have lots of reading to do. I hope this information can be of help to original thread starter.
