Description Remington L 2005-03-17 19:51:24 UTC
After the recommendation of 2712 I am still recieving an error, even worse than
the original problem. With both stock i810 driver and the modified driver I recieve:
(II) I810(0): I2C bus "DDC" initialized.
(II) I810(0): VESA VBE DDC supported
(II) I810(0): VESA VBE DDC Level 2
(II) I810(0): VESA VBE DDC transfer in appr. 1 sec.
(II) I810(0): VESA VBE DDC read failed
(WW) I810(0): BIOS EDID failed.

I've just uploaded a new driver.

Try that.

Any news on this ?
Comment 9 Alan Hourihane 2005-03-21 13:47:15 UTC
Fixed in CVS. Closing.
Comment 10 Remington L 2005-03-22 16:57:12 UTC
This patch does not work, need to update status. Driver crashes entire system.
Will attach Xorg.log soon

getting out of startx. After tonight will no have access to the system for
about a week
