I810 driver problem fc6 Xen
My system is an Intel d945gnt motherboard with I810 video on board, with dual core Intel 930, and 1 gig ddr2 ram.
Until about 1 week ago, the system was fine. Following some yum updates via pup, an intermittant problem started. Sometimes during boot, the system would stop in the middle and restart, othertimes, during use, say after 15 minutes to 1 hour, the terminal will freeze, locking up the display, mouse and most of the keyboard. (Numlock still works). Only way out is a reboot.
Does anyone know what was changed in Fc6 between November 10 and November 25, that would affect the video.
On the same computer, I have dual boot, to the Oct 24th version of FC6. This version does not lock up.
In the interrim, I have edited the x11 config file to change the driver from I810 to vesa. This change appears to have solved the problem, but I notice that the video performance is suffering slightly.
Since the substitution of VESA for I810, system is not locking up.
I also, when problems started, found a bios update on the Intel web site. Updating the bios did not improve the situation.
Help me get back my system to where it was before the video problems started. I dont want to rebuild from scratch. Suggestions welcome.
