Patch to add support for Intel GMA X4500HD to intel_extreme driver

Description

The enclosed patch adds support for the Intel Graphics Media Accellerator X4500HD to the intel_extreme driver and to the intel_gart driver.

I only enabled support for Device ID 0x2e20, which works in my case with a DVI to VGA adapter cable. The Haiku Devices app says that ID 0x2e20 is a VGA compatible display adapter, while ID 0x2e23 is just a display adapter - no mention of VGA.

Possibly you'll want to uncomment the 0x2e23 support.

One remaining problem in my particular case is that I don't get support for my LCD monitor's 1400 x 900 resolution. I get 1400 x 1050 and 1440 x 900, but not 1400 x 900. If someone can suggest a fix I'll try it out.

Can you provide a complete syslog from that machine? This will be helpful to retrieve the correct name for that chipset as well as identifying eventual EDID problems.

axeld, the syslog is attached.

This machine is a loaner from a client. I may have to give it back soon, so he can lend it to someone else.

If "KVM monitor" is any indication: are you behind a KVM switch? If so, it messes up the EDID information of your monitor (ie. replaces it with its own).

I was on this particular boot, but previously I was directly attached to an Acer AL1917W A LCD display.

I'll get you a new syslog, while booting directly attached to the Acer.

Michael, any updates?

Any chance of uploading that syslog, while attached directly to your Acer AL1917W A LCD display, Michael?

Note: #6641 is a similar ticket.

mmadia, my apologies, I moved from California to Washington State, and left most of my stuff in a storage locker. The PC with this video card is in that locker, but I expect to retrieve it sometime soon.

I will make sure I upload your requested syslog once I have the unit back in my possession.

As I said it was a loaner from a client. I expected to have to give it back, but I kept trying to contact him to arrange to give him his computer back, and he never responded. He's a really busy guy, so I guess I can devote the unit to Haiku development once I have it back!

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The mentioned ID has been added some time ago, so this patch is obsolete now. Please test and attach the requested syslog if you get around to it. In case it doesn't work, a new ticket would be appropriate though. Closing as fixed because the indicated ID has been added in the meantime.
