1 Dear all,
3 =======
4 Short version:
5 If you upgrade to xorg-x11-7.4, xorg-server-1.5 and
6 xf86-video-i810-2.4.2-r1, and X does not start, change Section
7 "Device" Driver "i810" to "intel" in your xorg.conf. Would have been
8 nice if Portage had informed us of this.
10 If nothing else works, revert to "vesa" (or "vga") and start searching the Net.
12 =======
13 Long version:
14 Yesterday I upgraded (--deep) my Xorg to xorg-x11-7.4, hence
15 xorg-server-1.5. Upon reboot X would not start. First it complained of
16 missing drivers, and to get rid of these errors I simply commented
17 these lines in xorg.conf:
18 # Load "xtrap"
19 # Load "record"
20 # Load "type1"
22 However, X still refuses to start. I figured, at least I think that
23 the problem was in the Device driver: "i810".
24 =x11-drivers/xf86-video-i810-2.4.2-r1 refuses to detect about anything
25 (also checked with dmesg). I used "vesa" as a joker, and to my
26 surprise X started. But I'd much like to switch to the i810 one.
28 I tried rebuilding xf86-video-i810, but it brought nothing new. I
29 tried downgrading to stable versions (1.6.5, 1.7.4 and 2.1.1), or
30 unstable (2.2.1), but the driver would simply not compile. I did
31 manage to compile 2.3.2, but I see the same behaviour as with
32 2.4.2-r1.
33 "(EE) No devices detected.
35 Fatal server error:
36 no screens found
37 giving up.
38 xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
39 xinit: No such process (errno 3): unexpected signal 2."
41 When loading X with "vesa", I still get some non-fatal errors:
43 "error setting MTRR (base = 0xf0000000, size = 0x01fd0000, type = 1)
44 Invalid argument (22)
45 (EE) TouchPad no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
46 (EE) TouchPad Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
