is a bug that I filed for a really slow X, lockup and with needing to
put a mouse across the menu items etc to see bits and pieces of
programs. There is a driver that I compiled from the source rpms using
If this doesn't help you out, then grab the CDROM installation driver I
uploaded on bug below.
Or you could try to apply the patch provided in
Any solution would be to file a bug against the i810 driver. Either jump
on a bug report already filed or add to one with a similar nature and build.
If you do decide to try the binaries that I uploaded, rename the
original driver that is currently installed in
to reflect refresh problem. (i810_drv.o.mouse-refresh or something)
Then copy the driver from bug 1086 to
/usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/i810_drv.o - When you change your
xorg.conf back to i810, you might be 3D and higher resolution capable
until the next version of X with the fix comes in.
When you install the next version of X, the copied and replaced driver
will be replaced by the newer i810 driver. So to be safe, save the
working driver copy somewhere safe or vesa agan and stay until the
working release is available from the repository.
Good luck and misery has company regarding a bumbed i810 driver.
