Description Bryan Che 2007-06-11 18:52:43 UTC
Description of problem:

I have a Thinkpad T60 with Intel 945 integrated graphics.  F7 selected the Intel
driver by default.  This driver doesn't play back video.  For example, I did a
yum install of xine, and xine immediately crashes upon launch.  Other video
players also have problems.

I switched to the 810 drivers instead, and I was able to play back video fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. use intel drivers on T60
2. launch xine
Actual results:
xine crashes immediately

Expected results:
xine runs

What version of xorg-x11-drv-i810 ?

Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-06-19 16:13:10 UTC
Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

On a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Si 1520 with Intel GM945 graphics and Quanta Display
15" 1280x800 Display the same problem exists.

Fedora7 is 2.6.21-1.3228.fc7, xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.0.0-4.fc7

Xine plays DVDs , sound is audible but the display window is black. Setting
"System/Preferences/Hardware/Screen Resolution" to 1024x768 from 1280x800 breaks
the display completely, the screen goes black.

When changing driver from "intel" to "i810" everything seems fine.

As the "intel" driver is described as "Experimental", I wonder how it got to be
the driver for the final release.

It may be of interest for you, that the same driver is causing problems with
openSuSE 10.3 alpha as well, only Xine seems to work correctly.

Comment 13 Matěj Cepl 2007-06-26 12:06:40 UTC
Casual J. Programmer, could you please attach to this bug your
/etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log as uncompressed separate attachments
as well? Thank you.

Comment 14 David Hollis 2007-06-27 06:02:46 UTC
xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.0.0-4.fc7 seems to fix this.  Mplayer now works fine for me
using the Xv driver instead of X11.

From the changelog:
* Wed Jun 06 2007 Adam Jackson <ajax@redhat.com> 2.0.0-4
- Update to git master.  Many Xv and DVO fixes.  Adds support for 945GME,
  965GME, G33, Q33, and Q35 chips.

X is locking up, the system continues to run and it accessible via the network,
but a CTRL-ALT-BKspace does not restore the X session.

I found in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old the following:

The motherboard is an Intel DG965RY with a built in video card lspci reports the
VGA controller as:

One of the screen savers is triggering the bug as it just started happening
after I loaded a bunch of screensavers and set it to randomly choose one, plus
it only happens when the system brings up a screensaver.

In addition I have noticed that I can not play  video's with mplayer which by
default uses xv (?) unless I specify "-vo x11"  in FC6 I didn't have this issue.

switching to the i810 driver from the Intel experimental driver solves the problem

What version of the i810 package do you have installed?

When the X freezes I'm using the experimental intel driver as autodetected by
the Fedora 7 installer "Intell - Experimental modesetting driver for Intel
integrated graphics chipsets"

When I switch to the i810 driver it works, that is:
(II) LoadModule: "i810"
(II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers//i810_drv.so
(II) Module i810: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 1.3.0, module version = 1.6.5
        Module class: X.Org Video Driver
        ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 1.2

the Experimental driver, the one that was failing, I am not using now was the
one distributed with F7 - x86_64
