The cause is vesa-tng not bootsplash. Use vesafb instead and you will get a clear screen. In turn you'll probably have to cope with 4/3 screen ratio. I haven't found yet the corresponding video (vga) mode to 1680x1050.

Hmm... I get framerates of only ~830 fps...

Code:
centrino xorg-x11 # cat /usr/src/linux/.config | grep I915
CONFIG_DRM_I915=m


Not sure how to go about debugging this.

However, here is something interesting in the X log:

Code:
(WW) I810: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found



Any ideas?

VinzC, could you please post your xorg.conf?


Thanks,
Alex.

What kind/brand of computer do you have? What is the result of egrep -i 'dr[i|m] /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

that's quite normal. See my post about i915. This one also helps.

You'll find it in Dell Inspiron 6000 thread in this forum, a couple of posts below. You'll also find my kernel config, in cases you need it. Please also read the Dell Inspiron 6000 and i915 and Xorg - how? forums as both contain quite useful information on i915 chipset. They also answer the frequently asked questions about that chipset.

Thanks for the interest showed :)

Also (if your laptop has a synaptics touchpad), have you gotten it to work? I got mine to recognize buttons/scrolling but no mouse movement, which is weird...

Does this mean you have improved performance over ~ 830 fps with the patch? If yes please give me a pointer what you have changed, cause I have ~ 850 fps with the patch, too - no 1300 fps, no chance to play Neverwinter Nights.

I had xorg-8.99.13 working with the same performance and working DRI (without patch). Then in 8.99.15 DRI didn't work anymore and performance was ~ 600 fps - the patch made DRI work again but the performance boost is not that great.

I have a Dell I6000 with Pentium-M 1.6Ghz, 512MB RAM and i915GM chipset + Intel Onboard Graphic.

I have set VGA RAM to 128MB in xorg.conf
I will try to update my gentoo-sources-2.6.12 to -r6 from -r4 atm, maybe this helps.

Umm... "synaptics thing" isn't video... it's the touchpad. So, no, I don't have the video at higher framerate.

I've renamed the official ebuild from xorg-x11-6.8.99.15 to xorg-x11-6.8.99.15-r1 to update Xorg with emerge -av xorg-x11. However Gentoo developers might release an update with the same name. So I went a little step further and defined a use flag to apply the patch on the user's behalf: without the use flag the patch is not applied.

You might object this is a big overhead but if an new ebuild with the same name is released it won't conflict with this one. Finally since I'm working with the original sources I found it convenient to revert to the initial ebuild: just remove the use flag to emerge.


We aren't likely to push out a new revision, FYI. Most of our time is going into preparing the modularized 7.0 for release.

Great work on this!

Just wondering: Has anyone gotten this to work with a HP Compaq nx6110? :?:


Yes, finally I just succeded in make it working on my HP Compaq nx6110.
I had to use vesafb instead of vesa-tng on console.

Thanks to all of you mates! :)

Interesting, what where your problems with *vesafb-tng? Was it just slower or didn't it work anyway? I'm asking because I have veasfb-tng and it works but with only ~950 fps.

I've renamed the official ebuild from xorg-x11-6.8.99.15 to xorg-x11-6.8.99.15-r1 to update Xorg with emerge -av xorg-x11. However Gentoo developers might release an update with the same name. So I went a little step further and defined a use flag to apply the patch on the user's behalf: without the use flag the patch is not applied.

You might object this is a big overhead but if an new ebuild with the same name is released it won't conflict with this one. Finally since I'm working with the original sources I found it convenient to revert to the initial ebuild: just remove the use flag to emerge.

Thanks and respect.

vesafb didn't change much. The only thing is that it allowed me to keep virtual consoles. Before, with vesafb-tng, X would manage to mangle the console's display.

However, I experimented with Composite and it works all right. If I could improve on my framerate, it would work even better.... :)

Note: do you use 16-bit or 32-bit colors in xorg? DRI only works with 16-bit, as per i810 man pages.

Only problem is that when returning to console after having initialized xorg (ex. by presing Ctrl-Alt-F1 in fluxbox) the console is completely messed up; shutting down xorg doesn't reset the situation, only reboot resolve. After changing vesa driver to vesafb it works fine.
I use 16 bit depth on console ( added vga=0x317 on cmd line of the kernel ) and 24 bit depth on xorg. Perhaps the xorg driver use always 32 bit?
In my xorg.log I read:
Code:

...
(**) I810(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
...
(==) Depth 24 pixmap format is 32 bpp

Hmm, thanks for the info, now I have ~ 1300 fps in 16bit - I used 24 bit before. Nevertheless I think the i810 man is wrong / outdated here as I HAD DRI working in 24 bit. Don't you think it's a normal slowdown when performance is ~ 50% after switching from 24 bit to 16 bit - given the limited performance of our "graphic card" (exspecially on the RAM side)?

However compared to Windows there is room for massive performance improvements for i915gm on linux. This will need some more time I think and maybe one day the "second pipe" thing will be properly implemented.

Thanks for all your help!

EDIT: For the vesafb-tng thing: I have it working here without much problems - see my xorg.conf for details.

Hey, once in a while I can help other people instead of just asking silly questions - that's a good feeling ;)

Damn, now that I have 1300 fps in 16 bit I have to realize that Neverwinter Nights doesn't run in 16 bit (colors are completely messed up). Think I have to play in WinXP and wait for the things to come in future xorg...

Hi!

I would try to use your xorg file, but I have a ATI Radeon card instead of onboard graphic. What would there be to change?
I am asking because I want to prevent from more struggeling. ;)

This post is not for you if you have an ATi card. Just install ati-drivers and ati-drivers-extra (optional). Then run fglrxconfig and follow the prompts. You should end up with a working xorg.conf.

Regards,
Alex.

@ Topicstarter:
Why you not just hosting the Patch and the new Ebuild?
I don't find the missing Tab or Space in your patch, and i don't want build an custom ebuild.

Why everyone must read your HowTo, if you have done allready the work for everyone.
Sorry, but i want just a solution, not ten unnecessary problems.
Put the Ebuild and Patch on the Web, say were to store them, or in den Overlay, and everybody is happy.

Thank you
This is an advice, no flame.

Now i merge 6.8.99.14 again, because i don't find the tab or space, and want just a runnig system.

1. No more problems with spaces or tabs, or something other...
2. less work for everybody, no more "patch errors" (i don't find the missing tab, or space, or whatever?!?!)
3. it is simple an quick and clean: one person, do the work for everyone

also an allready applied patch, should do make the work easier for portage-people

SO PLEASE:
Put the Patch and the ready Ebuild on any Webserver you find, link them, and everything is ready.
Sorry, but i am going to fix the problem, nothing more. I think the will increase the "effect" of your work much.

Thank You


Here they are:

patched_xorg.ebuild
agp_patch

OT: It worked way better for me to copy and past the stuff from the forum into nano instead of my lovely vim.[/url]
