What are you running exactly - Rawhide? F11 Beta? F11 Snapshot?

What kernel package are you running?

What's the output of this, run as root:

lsmod | grep i915

? Thanks.

Comment 3 Mario Chacon 2009-04-17 11:39:58 UTC
I have installed the Snapshot and updated to the latest version.
kernel version:
I got nothing when I run lsmod | grep i915.


Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2009-04-17 17:05:49 UTC
Can you please do this?

Open a root console, and run 'tail -f /var/log/messages'. Leave that running.

Open another root console that doesn't overlap the first. Run 'modprobe i915' in this console. This should result in several new lines showing up in the first console. Can you copy / paste, or attach, those lines? Thanks.

Thanks...one more thing - can you post the contents of that /etc/modprobe.conf file? Thanks.

It's empty.

Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2009-04-17 20:44:14 UTC
OK. Looks like some kind of kernel issue then. Assigning to kernel, keeping intel maintainers in CC in case they can shed any light.

I tried with the new kernel and xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-1.fc11.i586 and I have another logs, please see new attachs.

xorg log intel 2.7

Comment 12 Mario Chacon 2009-04-22 04:21:02 UTC
Is it going to be fix it in F11?

Comment 13 Mario Chacon 2009-04-25 03:31:47 UTC
I have talk with intel developers and they told me that it's a Fedora bug, not a driver problem, Is it correct?

Comment 14 Otto Rey 2009-04-25 18:03:34 UTC
If it's a Fedora bug instead of intel driver problem, we should fix it before F11 release to keep excelente intel video support in Fedora out of the box.

Comment 15 Mario Chacon 2009-04-27 18:06:59 UTC
Is there any way to recompile some source to make it work on my machine??

Comment 16 Kyle McMartin 2009-04-27 19:05:44 UTC
Attach dmesg?

Comment 17 Mario Chacon 2009-04-27 19:21:14 UTC
How can I do it?

Comment 18 Kyle McMartin 2009-04-27 19:33:02 UTC

dmesg >dmesg.log

and attach dmesg.log to this bug?

Please check my log.

Comment 21 Mario Chacon 2009-04-30 18:51:11 UTC
Now it's works using the latest version of the kernel and intel driver, but I have to use the option Tiling(false) to synchronize the video and  got this warning:

II)         composite (RENDER acceleration)

Watching the intel help it's says that if I enable this option:
In most cases (especially for complex rendering), tiling dramatically improves performance.
Why do I need to use it??


PD: I have attached the new Xorg log and conf.

Comment 24 Adam Williamson 2009-04-30 23:28:29 UTC
So, to be clear, you no longer have the problem with the i915 module with latest rawhide?

If that's the case, please file a new bug for your new problem. Tracking multiple bugs in a single report is impossible to do effectively. Thanks!

Comment 25 Mario Chacon 2009-04-30 23:52:29 UTC
Yes, it's working!!..
Thanks you much!..

I have created a new task with the tiling option: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=498543
