It was a clean install of 12. I haven't yet installed 12.1 on the laptop with the Intel chipset, so I don't know if the issue is still there, however.

Seems like a boo-boo in the install scripts somewhere.

As I like to say: Poop happens.

One of the quirks of our most beloved distro. (No sarcasm. I really do love it)

Hi,

If you look inside packages "xf86-video-i810" and "xf86-video-intel" you'll notice that some files got the same name in both packages. As "xf86-video-intel" is installed later in the installation process, files from "xf86-video-i810" are repleaced, and I think here comes the problem that xorg can't use i810, and e.g. my video card doesn't work with intel, but only with i810.

Best regards,
atelszewski

So maybe a swap of those two files in the install script?

Personally, I'm happy as a clam to just reinstall i810 after everything else is done...

Hi,

I don't know what you exactly mean by:

It is possible to create slackware cd (dvd) without, let's say intel driver by removing it from packages and editing tagfile for the x series, but in my opinion it's worthless when you know the solution and don't plan to install slackware on thousand computers from cd

Now, I almost don't use cd's, but PXE and network installation which works just fine. Here comes the easy way to include only the packages you want to install, etc.

Best regards,
atelszewski

From the thread I linked to it sounds like the overwrite was intentional.
I'd like to do a custom slack cd (dvd) as well. throw in openoffice and the latest firefox, etc.

Almost exactly what I meant, with the exception of removing the intel package. I haven't delved into it, but there might be needed files in the intel package that i810 does not provide...

And to have it in the actual distro, not changed by individual users, so this relatively minor issue won't affect future users of SW and Intel video chipsets, and cause uneeded irritation. It seems to be a very small oversight by the devel team for SW.

Maybe fix that in future releases?

Maybe, I'm not sure, but I did uninstalled intel and installed i810 and it works as should.

So just remove the entry in tagfile Btw, I installed Slack 12.1 on some old Compaq and found that my HP LaserJet 5L works well under it (in opposition to Slack 12.0) - but it's off topic

Lightbulb i810 notes

i810 from intel is an Xorg integrated chipset. It can support 3D with the help of Direct Redndering Infrastructure. Use the option CacheLines (input an integer) this allows you to change your 2D properties, acceleration of video. If the values set to lower 3D textures are visible. If set higher 2D is enhanced at the expense of 3D

This thread is almost 5 years old. Please don't resurrect such old threads.
In the mean time the Intel drivers have seen a complete rewrite, so I doubt that these problems apply anymore.
