darn... there we go again, i forgot to give the version i am running. I have FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE, xorg 7.3_1 and yes with the x11-drivers/xf86-video-intel port installed. I fell back to 915resolution since this intel driver failed. I was hoping to get some joy with 915resolution, but realised that it does not support this chipset as well :-(.
I deinstalled the intel driver and installed the i810 driver, but no joy either. Im back to the intel driver and i still cannot get 1280x800 done. every time i startx i get the error i described earlier. I checked and /dev/agpgart does not exist. Im sure i compiled my kernel with "device agp". thanks for the assistance. On 1/31/08, Doug Poland <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > Mike Barnard wrote: > > Hi, I have an HP Compaq 6720s laptop.
