I loaded the 915resolution port and configured my rc.conf accordingly:
i915resolution_enable="YES" i915resolution_modes="3c 4d 5c" i915resolution_width="1680" i915resolution_height="1050" Xorg still failed... snip (II) I810(0): detected 7932 kB stolen memory. (II) I810(0): Kernel reported 0 total, 0 used (II) I810(0): I830CheckAvailableMemory: 0 kB available (WW) I810(0): /dev/agpgart is either not available, or no memory is available for allocation. Using pre-allocated memory only.

Is your VideoRAM set too low ?? Fatal server error: AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for driver 0 However, when I changed the driver in /etc/X11/xorg.conf from i810 to vesa: Identifier "Card0" #Driver "i810" Driver "vesa" VendorName "Intel Corporation" BoardName "Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller" BusID "PCI:0:2:0" Now Xorg starts fine. I'm not sure why it worked but I'm glad it does. I'll go with the VESA driver unless I get any feedback or more info on getting i810 driver to work. Thanks for you help. -- Regards, Doug _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
