e7221 support

Comment 4 Carlos Martín 2007-12-15 18:17:03 UTC
This patches fixes the problem. Currently works for me on s Supermicro P8SCT

Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2008-01-22 18:38:08 UTC
Fixed in rawhide.  Currently building mesa-7.0.2-3.fc8 for updates.

Comment 6 Carlos Martín 2008-01-23 23:17:16 UTC
Thanks, I will test an soon as it's in updates-testing :). Just waiting for bug
425786 to get AGPGART support for E7221 chipset... 

Comment 7 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-24 17:14:49 UTC
OK, so I will put NEEDINFO on you, so that we don't loose this bug.

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2008-01-24 22:01:47 UTC
mesa-7.0.2-3.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
 If you want to test the update, you can install it with 
 su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update mesa'

Comment 9 Carlos Martín 2008-01-25 15:06:43 UTC
I've already test the new mesa packages and works as expected. Keep in mind that
it only works with new intel driver. (Old i810 driver fails) 

Comment 10 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-28 14:55:31 UTC
I am afraid there is not much development in i810 driver at all these days.

Comment 11 Carlos Martín 2008-01-29 15:29:52 UTC
Yes, I think so, but without AGPGART support for E7221 in the kernel, i810
driver is the ONLY driver usable yet. Adam, please, review 425786 bug, patches
provided in it also fits in rawhide kernels (except not tested intelfb one, wich
isn't really required for X)

Comment 12 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-29 17:39:27 UTC
OK, reopening.

Comment 13 Fedora Update System 2008-02-13 05:08:27 UTC
mesa-7.0.2-3.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
