Updating Xorg to 7.1 with xf86-video-i810 between 1.6.1 and 1.7.0 breaks suspend
to RAM for me: The display stays black, the backlight off, reviving it with
vbetool is possible. Xorg 7.0 with i810 1.5.1 works flawlessy in this regard.
See also bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=390913 (im using the Debian
Logs comparing 1.5.1 with 1.7.0 would be useful.

xdpyinfo for i810 driver v1.6.5
I've attached "dmesg" logs and X logs for i810 drivers v1.5.1 (under X.org
7.0.0) and and v1.6.5 (under X.org 7.1.1), across an S3 sleep and resume. I
marked the point where the resume occured with "SUSPEND HAPPENS HERE."
I've also attached xdpyinfo output for both drivers.
The Composite extension was disabled for all tests. Enabling it doesn't change
the results. I have logs for 1.6.5/7.1.1 with Composite on if anyone needs them.
can you try a test 1.7.1 driver from http://www.fairlite.demon.co.uk/intel.html
and let me know if that works for you.

Hm, http://www.fairlite.demon.co.uk/i810_drv.so seems to be 1.7.0? Anyway, the
problem occurs also with this driver (and Xorg 7.0).

Xorg.0.log and dmesg for working and non-working suspend, part 2
Same as above, but for xorg 7.0 with i810 1.7.0.
The driver at my homepage is just a modified 1.7.0 driver.
Now, I've just uploaded another one to try, let me know if this helps.

Logs for new test 1.7.0 (Xorg 7.0.0) around suspend
The test version of i810 1.7.0 (as of now) works fine with Xorg 7.0.0,
including suspend and resume. dmesg and X logs for it are attached as a
The test version of i810 1.7.0 does not work with Xorg 7.1.1 because of an ABI
mismatch. If you compile a 7.1.1 version, I can try that across a
suspend/resume. Let me know.
I've also uploaded a new driver which emits some extra debug information for me.
Can you try it, and upload a new log.
Addtionally, the -ignoreABI flag to the Xserver will make it work with Xorg 7.1

hadn't got before (display fading from black over yellow, red to white, but not
Sorry, there was a typo in the last test driver. I've reuploaded a new one to try.
Oh, and don't use vbetool. It breaks the driver.
Committed fixes to driver. The fixes will appear in the 1.7.1 release of the driver.

The driver I just downloaded (18:00 CEST) works for me. Thanks a lot.
