Hi, I'm using a HP dv1000t-series notebook with Intel 945G graphics, I'm trying to get Xorg to start up with the i810 driver. Vesa works, however things like watching videos for example in MPlayer is very slow. Ubuntu on the same machine worked fine with the driver using Xorg 7.0 while Gentoo running the same Xorg complains that "No matching Device sectin for instance (BusID PCI:0:02:1) found" and refuses to start. If I add a BusID line for the device in Xorg.conf, it says the same thing except with PCI:0:02:0 as the problem. After reading various how-tos on this graphics chipset, I'm still stuck. Here's the relevent part ofmy lspci:
Code:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/PM/GMS/940GML and 945GT Express Memory Controller Hub (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)


Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

1. Are you running Xorg 7.0? If so, have you compiled it with support for i810?
2. Show us you Xorg log.

I started off with Xorg 6.something, but I upgraded to 7.0 in the hopes that it would fix the problem. And yes, I compiled it with i810 and vesa support. Here's my log:

I am having the same problem and for the same graphics card (915GM) when I installed Xorg 6.8. I was told that 915GM was not supported right in 6.8 and was advised to upgrade to Modular X (Xorg 7.0).

I tried upgrading to Modular X using the http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/x/x11/modular-x-howto.xml link but have been having problems with the upgrade. I am not sure I followed the following instruction (from the mentioned link) right
Quote:
Download the package list, and open it in a text editor of your choice. Copy and paste the full modular X mask over to package.keywords.

Could you let me know what exactly you put in package.keywords?

I can upgrade to 7.0 and let you know if I encounter any similar problem.

Just copy the entire contents of this
http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/desktop/x/x11/modular-x-packages.txt
to /etc/portage/package.keywords- append it to the end of anything that might be there. If you can use X at all you can just cut in past in an editor. This will tell emerge to let the 'unstable' Xorg files be used.

Thanks for the help, but I tried the how-to and it still does the exact same thing. I'm not sure that the bug report is my problem. Here's a question that's probably very stupid- in the how-to it says to build /dev/agpgart and Intel 440LX/BX/GX as modules... however my menuconfig just displays --- next to both and I can't actually build the into the kernel or as modules.

johnk, if you can't build apggart as module, it's fine. However it is critical to build drm and i915 as modules, as you need to replace them later.

Hello johnk, I was able to do a fresh Modular X install (after I crashed my previous installation while trying to upgrade from X11 6.8) and successfully use the i810 driver for my 915GM chipset. I don't have my laptop right now, will post relevant details from config files when I get back home...

Here are the relevant details:

I crashed my system when I tried to upgrade to Modular X, so I had to reinstall the whole thing and I direclty installed Modular X. This is the Mod X version I have on my system

Code:
*  x11-base/xorg-x11
      Latest version available: 7.0-r1
      Latest version installed: 7.0-r1
      Size of files: 0 kB
      Homepage:      http://xorg.freedesktop.org
      Description:   An X11 implementation maintained by the X.Org Foundation (meta package)
      License:       as-is


I have DRM compiled direclty into my kernel. I haven't emerged x11-drm on my system.(Read in another post that DRM shouldn't be compiled with kernel and has to be installed seperately, but this works for me). I also have i915 and i810 support compiled into the kernel.

Here is the relevant section from my xorg.conf file

Code:
Section "Monitor"
  Identifier   "Monitor0"
        Option      "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier  "i830Drv_A"
   Driver      "i810"
#   VideoRam    131072
#   BusID       "PCI:0:2:1"
   Screen      0
   Option      "DevicePresence" "yes"
   Option      "MonitorLayout" "CRT,LFP"
   Option      "NoAccel"       "false"
   Option      "DRI"           "true"
#   Option      "XVideo"        "true"
#   Option      "VBERestore"    "true"
#   Option      "SWCursor"      "true"
EndSection

Section "Screen"

    #Option "backingstore"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "i830Drv_A"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"

  # initial origin if mode is smaller than
#desktop
#        Virtual     1280 1024
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768
" "800x600"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "DRI"
        Mode         0666
EndSection



Let me know if you need any other info.

Hi, thanks all for your suggestions. I tried the how-to and Aruns' configuration. Unfortunantly, it still doesn't work. :(

I've tried installing Arch linux on the same computer and it spits out the EXACT same message. I suppose I'll just have to live with vesa, but I've always ripped a lot of movies to my hard drive and it's annoying to not be able to view them properly...

The xorg wiki says this about it
http://wiki.x.org/wiki/FAQWarningMessages
However it's not very helpfull in my case, because I DO set up a valid device section but I can't 'safely ignore the warning' because X won't start up.

johnk,

One weird thing I observed. With the xorg.conf part for "Device" section I posted above, I was able to successfully run the window manager "fluxbox". But when I installed kde and started it, it gave me the error you had got

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


I uncommented the BusID option in in the "device" section and it worked for PCI:0:2:0.

Code:
   BusID       "PCI:0:2:0"


You might want to try this out incase you haven't already. (Not sure why X worked for me initially with fluxbox but not kde)

aruns, that warning message doesn't have any effect. I still have that warning message today and I'm running DRI at full speed. It's probably something else.

johnk, maybe you need to build the xorg-server-1.0.99. That was the last step that solved my dri problem. Give it a try.

Saintpa- building that version worked! But when I try to play a video using the xv driver, whatever program I use crashes and gives me an error something like

Code:

Error code: 11 ( BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation) )


I've tried monkeying around with the video ram settings in xorg, but with no success. I also have the "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps" option in my Xorg...

Any ideas? Or is this just due to the bleeding-edge Xorg build? Anyway, thanks for all the help.

johnk, I use the 1.0.99 version of x.org and I haven't seen anything like that. What are the version numbers for kernel, x11-drm, and mesa on your machine?

Saintpa,
Actually I just remembered that x11-drm never got installed, it gives me this message-

johnk,

Don't use the x11-drm from portage. Instead, get the CVS version of drm from drm.freekdesktop.org

You do, however, need to make i915 and drm as kernel modules so that you can directly replace the .ko files with the latest ones from CVS tree. See https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-455101-highlight-945gm.html for the howto
