#7723 assigned bug

R1/alpha3 won't boot on Dell Latitude D400 due to Intel 855gm chipset

Reported by: mahrain Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1/beta2
Component: Drivers/Graphics/intel_extreme Version: R1/alpha3
Keywords: 855gm 82855GM Cc: mahrain
Blocked By: #7662 Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: x86

Description

  1. Create USB stick from Anyboot image
  2. Boot it

Expected: Boot to desktop Actual: Boot to the rocket icon, screen flashes once, system hangs.

Workaround: hold spacebar when the Haiku logo appears and boot with the safe graphics (vesa) mode set.

Additional info:

The intel extreme graphics 2 chipset (855gm) used in later Centrino platform laptops is a living hell on open source operating systems. I have had problems with this chipset on recent GNU/Linux distributions and FreeBSD. Linux bugs have to do with Kernel Mode Setting and/or DRI.
