Hallo  Alex,

no worries, so far I suspended i915/drm-kms versus agpgart stack work for the 
time until VirtualBox will be totally completed with all desktop- and server- 
features and really finally officially be incorporated into Hipster (when I'm 
ready I shall upload it to  https://github.com/OpenSXCE-org and then Alexander 
Pyhalov and Hipster-core team will take over).

The irony is, that you and Apostolos and Ben have been right all along: 

[oi-dev] Fwd: The compatibility PARADOX of the old versus the new i915 DRM(and 
now KMS submodule) kernel driver on newer (but not too new) versus older 
Now, however, it sounds very bad that on your Laptop Oracle Solaris 11.3 shows 
exactly the same problem.
It sounds like something different then, although your error message in 
Xorg.0.log looks very damn related.

After I finally continue with i915 aka fix Illumos' outdated and since 2010 
unchanged Sun-OpenSolaris agpgart stack I'll create a preliminary iso for you 
named three and also I have bought me a similar legacy Laptop for testing last 
Then let's see if you can get it working with what I will by then (next week) 
have completed. But given that it doesn't work on 11.3 either, chances are 
perhaps dim, but we shall see.

Thanks for having taken the hassle to help the Hipster-community by testing and 
Next time we will also look into syslog via ssh (first boot to single user and 
start sshd). This will be the point when we see if it was related to the same 
AGPIOC_RW_GTT (lack of in old agpgart stack). If yes, it makes me wonder even 
more why it also shows the same problems on S11.3 then.

Pls. some patience until next week for i915.
Once again tx for testing!

Beste Gruesse aus Ost-Berlin,
