intel 852GM gamma adjust


Hi guys,

I compiled my own 2.6.10 kernel for Debian Sarge and I have full support for my hardware from the kernel, but I can't seem to be able to adjust the gamma of my monitor (contrast). After much reading it seems that the problem is the x-server: it comes with the i810 driver and not the i830 driver that supports Intel's Extreme Graphics 852GM chipset. Does anyone know how to go around this? The screen looks a little bit too bright right now and the KDE desktop panel is almost white.

Specs:
Toshiba Satellite A40, kernel 2.6.10-6 compiled from Debian Sid's source, 852GM video chipset w/ 64MBs of video memory. glxinfo output:

Any help would be appreciated.

from what i read and studied, there is no gamma adjustment for the i810 X11 drivers yet. It's an annoying problem for me also, since it's what's keeping me from playing games on Linux.

There is gamma option that you can include in the X line while loading gdm, xdm, kdm, startx, etc...

You are using software 3D rendering. If you do play games, it is going to be choppy.

Contrast is not gamma. Gamma is whole different spec.
