Re: [K12OSN] i810 Graphics support seems to not work on K12Linux

The primary thin client (which is the only PC platform the school has - 72 total for staff and students) is a Compaq D51 tower 2.2G P4 CPU with 512MB RAM Floppy CD/DVD Player (integrated video chipset).

You're right in that it may be an X.org bug. I'm just not 100% sure it is only an X.org problem. Looking at the Fedora version of the driver, which by the way is named *i810* whereas the one on the X.org website is named *intel*, makes me wonder if this might be a Fedora tweaked replacement.

I just finished setting up another server based on the K12Linux F10 i386 Stable 2 and found that the problem is the same. It is definitely looking like the intel driver is not properly identifying the chipset video.

I do have a geode based thin client that seems to work fine on both servers, i386 and x86_64.

I will check the lspci tomorrow and get you feedback on that.

I don't follow you on this comment as I was not able to find a xorg.conf anywhere on the server, including the chroot (/opt/ltsp/i386).

X_CONF=/path/to/xorg.conf (path within your chroot)

Thanks for the reply and tips...

This is not a K12Linux problem.  You are describing X.org upstream bugs. 
  The K12LTSP version of X is like ~5 years old at this point.

What specific hardware is this?  Can you edit lts.conf, disable ldm and 
enable shells, then copy lspci?
