Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 225132
Intel 915GV not working correctly with i810 driver
Last modified: 2007-11-16 20:14:55 EST
Description of problem:
A system with an 1024x768 LCD screen and an Intel 915GV chipset is not working
correctly in RHEL4 U4 with the "i810" driver (but it works correctly with RHEL5
beta2!). The display is shifted about 1/2 inch downwards and the topmost 1/2
inch of the screen is filled with more or less random pixels.
The "vesa" driver works ok, but then DPMS is not working anymore (a must for
this system), so this is no option.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Any chance the i810 driver will be upgraded in an upcoming RHEL4 update? Or is
there anything I can do to solve the problem via settings in xorg.conf?
I solved my own problem by setting the "NoAccel" option to "yes": now the screen
looks ok with the "i810" driver, including DPMS.
Should the bug be closed now or better leave it open as a trigger for better
I think it should be closed, if you want to make drivers better, file a bug
