    intel 810

    If anyone here is using the Intel i810 graphics chip could I please see the relevant parts of your "graphics device" and "screens" sections of your XF86Config file? I have xfree86 4.1.0 and I always get an "Addscreen/Screeninit failed for driver 0" error when I use the i810 driver. thanks for any help.

    NOTE: The following information is only applicable to the Intel family of video adapters served by the i810 and related chipsets.

    There is a utility you might want to look at, called 915resolution, which replaced the earlier 810resolution. This gem can be used to overwrite one of your video card's modes to, for instance, correct for an incorrectly detected flat panel or LCD display.

    I won't bore you with all the details, since the following link gets down to it better than I could ever do:

    Steve Tomljenovic really knows the subject matter, and how to present it concisely.

    I just used this to correctly configure my rather oddball laptop display (1280X768 wide-aspect TFT) so that I don't see a "stretchy" 1024X768 screen anymore.

    Don't know that my xorg.conf file would help you much, since you're using XFree... some of the options might be handy though... here's some of it:

    Section "Monitor"
    DisplaySize 302 188
    HorizSync 24-50
    Identifier "Monitor[0]"
    ModelName "1280X768@60HZ"
    Option "DPMS"
    VendorName "--> LCD"
    VertRefresh 49-65
    UseModes "Modes[0]"
    EndSection

    Section "Modes"
    Identifier "Modes[0]"
    Modeline "1280x768" 84.35 1280 1344 1480 1680 768 769 772 797
    {Other modelines snipped for brevity...}
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 15
    Modes "1280x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "768x576"

    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"

    Modes "1280x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "768x576"
    "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"

    Modes "1280x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "768x576"

    Hope that helps you out.
