I just got a new Dell D620 laptop with an Intel 945GM chip. The
resolution of the LCD is 1440x900. FC5 configured it to use VESA and do
1280x800 stretched on the 1440x900 LCD. I am now trying to get it to
work with the Rawhide i810 driver but not much luck. It seems that X
runs OK, because the external monitor works (at 1440x900) and i can
switch with Fn-F8 between the LCD and the external monitor. When the
external monitor is selected the LCD backlight is turned off, when the
LCD is selected the LCD backlight is on but the screen stays black
(sometimes it shortly displays a bit of junk just after the switch).

And tips or tricks for on how to get a 945GM working with the latest
Rawhide driver ?

I downgraded to the driver from FC6T1 and that manages to start in the
1440x900 resolution and work. But as soon as i try to logout it hangs my
machine hard.
Would things like logfiles be helpful here , or should i take this the
the Xorg list ? In the last case, what is the exact sourcecode version
of the latest i810 driver in rawhide ?

You can take it to Xorg bugzilla if you like, but it'll still probably be me looking at it, so I'd slightly prefer just doing it in redhat bugzilla.

The tarballs are just git exports of the Intel modesetting branch for the day given in the ENVR. I suppose I could add the timestamp to the date string, but xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.6.0-11.20060713modeset.fc6 is already bad enough.
