X Windows and Intel i810 driver
I just bought a Sony Vaio VX88 laptop and I'm trying to get OpenBSD 3.1
running. The laptop uses the Intel i815 chipset. Going through
xfree86.org tells me that this chipset is covered by the i810 driver.
When I run startx it crashes out with something to the effect of "Can't
find i810 driver". The README.810 says:
"This driver currently only works for Linux/ix86 and recent versions of
FreeBSD. It requires the agpgart kernel support, which is included in
Linux kernels 2.3.42 and higher and FreeBSD 4.1 and higher".
Doing a google search for agpgart and openbsd shows me that Matthieu
Herrb <firstname.lastname@example.org> did an experimental port for 2.9. I
can't tell if it's been merged into the source tree at any point. A
quick search for i810 through the changelogs revealed nothing.
My question is, does OpenBSD 3.1 support the Intel i815 chipset? If not,
are there any plans to have it working anytime soon? Can I pay someone
to get it working sooner? Will Matthieu's patch work on 3.1?
Any help would be appreciated.
