you _should_ see 915 resolution echoing a message about doing its magic. also immediately after boot try
Actually, I don't think you need 915resolution anymore. The X server version Slackware 11.0 includes was patched for i945GM support, both in 2D and 3D. When I installed -11.0 in my Toshiba A105, all I had to was 'X -configure' as root, and edit the xorg.conf generated to add my preferred DefaultDepth and the DRI permissions section. The X server works out-of-the-box and detects the 1280x800 LCD panel without any problems.
1. Ran xorgsetup. It chose the i810 driver. Loads DRI and GLX. Sets DefaultDepth to 24. Interestingly, it does not setup a choice for screen resolution. I chose to leave it that way, and see what happens.
2. Run 915resolution 38 1200 800 24
that's it, and now my KDE runs at 1200x800 in 24-bit mode.
I followed this up with setting my rc.local with the line in item 2, above. Works every time. I get 2 choices for screen resolution from within KDE: 1280x800, or 1024x768.
In the future, maybe I will try out X.org version X11R7.2 since it supports intel 945GM, which I have. Not sure what the difference will be, since the i810 is working, but I'd like to see it!
