Description of problem:
Since installation of Core 3, I have been unable to get a dual-head setup
working with the i810 driver (or a single monitor setup using i810, for that
matter). Fortunately, I have an nv card that works fine. I had a working setup
in Core 1 with the same hardware. Despite several attempts with various option
settings toggled, the system would reboot whenever i810 driver was loaded.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.startx or X -config with attached xorg.conf
Actual Results: System reboots.
Expected Results: X windows with dual monitor setup.
I get the following errors in my Xorg log:
(II) I810(1): initializing int10
(EE) I810(1): Cannot read V_BIOS
(II) I810(1): this driver cannot do DDC without VBE
(II) I810(1): [agp] GART: no dcache memory found
(II) I810(1): [agp] Bound backbuffer memory
(II) I810(1): [agp] Bound depthbuffer memory

I was able to "solve" this by tweaking my BIOS so the onboard i810 controller is
the primary, and by installing the latest module from CVS. It would be nice to
have my good graphics card as the primary, however, not the onboard i810, as I
Jim, have you tried 6.8.2 ?
Closing. Re-open if problem persists with 6.8.2. Marking as WONTFIX for 6.8.1.
