I recently installed openSUSE 11.1 on a Dell Latitude X200 laptop. This
laptop uses the 82830 (i830M) Intel graphics chip. Prior to installing SuSE I
verified that this graphics chip is supported with numerous individuals having
installed earlier versions of Linux on this laptop. No xserver problems had
been reported in these posts.
I have been unable to start the xserver on this laptop. I have been working
with numerous people on the openSUSE mailing list to try and resolve this
issue. The general consensus is that the intel_drv.so appears to be broken in
this distribution with several other people having difficulties with this
driver on other systems. We finally gave up and it was suggested that I move
on to the hardware gurus at this site.
Is there a problem with this driver in this xorg release? If so how can I get
it working? I am willing to try any suggestions to make this happen. I have
attached the Xorg.0.log file which ends in a fatal server error - lockup.
