Fedora Core 10 intel graphics driver issues

Greetings,

I recently wiped my FC6 dell box and ran a fresh install of FC10, unfortunately my dual display configuration is not working any more. I am using the onboard intel display adapter and a nvidia pci display adapter. My nvidia display is working but not my intel, I have tried configuring the device using both the i810 and intel drivers. Your help is greatly appreciated.

lspci shows the following:
04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000] (rev c1)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)


Here is my xorg.conf:

Greetings cheetahwind,
Thank you very much for your update, I have tried adding the entries to my xorg.conf but no go. Just get a blank screen. Looks like I will have to wait on the next kernel update or intel driver update? Thanks.

Intel driver update for F10

The actual URL for the solution I found is http://www.graphics-muse.org/wp/?p=314.

The reason the driver is having difficulties is probably related to the introduction of GEM to the 2.6.28 kernel, though F10 (at this point) is still at 2.6.27. It's possible the intel driver was mistakenly built to support GEM even though the current F10 kernel doesn't have it yet. Something like that. Rebuilding the driver from the xorg source tree (which is actually pretty easy) cleared the problem for me. See http://www.graphics-muse.org/wp/?p=322 for details on why this problem may have come up in F10.

I'd be interested in hearing why rebuilding the driver didn't work for you. Did the build fail or did the driver itself not work? Do you have an intel chip prior to i915? Or is your situation different than mine, which focused on requiring the use of dual head support with acceleration?

thanks mjhammel for the post, my issue is that I have an intel 810 chipset, I am trying to do dual monitors using two display adapters, one intel onboard i810 chipset and one nvidia single head pci card. It worked great on FC6 but since the upgrade my intel device will not work with the dual screen setup I posted above. Still looking for a fix for this but even rebuilding the driver did not work, I believe that it has something to do now with the xorg server packages and not the intel driver itself. There are several bug reports for the intel chipset i810. Will keep looking.

Ah. Yes, the new xorg doesn't consider this setup when auto configuring so you're likely to have to generate xorg.conf files for both cards, merge them into a single xorg.conf and then manually configure xinerama support (since dual monitors in this case would likely be handled in the server and not in the driver). I don't think xrandr works in this situation either.

But then, I haven't used a configuration like this since the mid 1990's so there's no telling what the requirements would be now.

Sorry I can't be of more help with that configuration.

To save everyone one step: libdrm package is compiled: http://www.4shared.com/file/72424111...icroni386.html

Ignore the "fc9" tag - it works for F10 http://www.4shared.com/file/72424111...icroni386.html.

If I get time, I'll do the Intel driver as an RPM.

You can't just install my updated libdrm without ALSO re-compiling the other stuff - the 2D and 3D drivers will fail due to incompatible code. I only posted it as a (possible) time-saver to save you guys one step (described at http://www.graphics-muse.org/wp/?p=314). I also suspect that the instructions on that page may be incomplete: there is no mention of re-compiling the 3D driver(s).
