Description Jens Stroebel 2007-10-22 06:28:27 UTC
When using the latest git-checkout as of yesterday, xorg fails to start, claiming
"(II) Primary Device is: PCI 00@00:02:0
(EE) No devices detected.".

The first of these 2 lines seems to indicate that the "card" is seen correctly at it's place on the PCI-bus. Still the second seems to indicate that the starting X is unaware of that...?

setup info:
linux kernel 2.6.22.9
xorg-libs + xorg xserver + xorg-drivers (git from 2007-10-19)
Mesa  (git from 2007-10-19)
drm (library: git from 2007-10-19; kernel-drm as included in 2.6.22.9)

xorg config of Dell host with 965GM (failing)

the "Device" section still states 945GM, as the previous hardware we used to use for the purpose had that Chip.
Comment 4 Eric Anholt 2007-10-22 09:34:42 UTC
Sounds like libpciaccess conversion issues to me.

changed xorg.conf which works

changed Device-section->Driver from "i810" to "intel".

xorg log for successful startup when using
Driver "intel"
Comment 7 Jens Stroebel 2007-10-23 05:28:18 UTC
Taking a closer look at the setup used, I realized that we still used

Driver  "i810"

in the Device section to specify the driver to use. This seems to be
enough to break the device detection functionality in the reported way.

Using 
Driver "intel"
fixes the "No devices detected" issue.
