Because xf86-video-i810 conflicts with xf86-video-intel and for xf86-video-intel 'i810' is alias for 'intel' in xorg.conf. To really test 'i810' driver you should deinstall xf86-video-intel and install xf86-video-i810. -- Paul _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
