Toshiba M100 - Kernel options to use i810 in xorg.conf


The title says it all!
I'm using Slackware 10.2 on a Toshiba M100.
I am trying to use the option "Driver" in xorg.conf as "i810".

My laptop has an 855GM graphics card on it.
With the standard 2.4 kernel, X starts fine, but with my compiled 2.6.14.4
it is not so happy, and there are specks on the screeen then it locks up.

I would like to know what options I need to put in my kernel configuration!

Thanks,
Edward Ando

I was about to say my i810 works just fine, but then I noticed you state that with the 2.6.14.4 it doesn't. I'd check under the section for video and make sure that the i810 is included (either as module or inside kernel). Other than that... I'm not sure. I can try it tonight by compiling a new kernel.

Nope, I don't have a M100. I do however have a frankenstein box that has an i810 chip in it - and I've had no problems at all. All I had to do was put "i810" in as the driver in xorg.conf. The module has been included with the default installation.

are you using ACPI or APM? How does it behave when waking up?
