Machine: i386

The NetBSD kernel does not have AGP support for the integrated
graphics device in the Intel i915 chipset. Without kernel support, the
X server can only use the integrated graphics to a limited degree,
e.g., without X-Video and hardware cursor.


Try to start X on a machine with i915 internal graphics.


I sent patches to port-i386 (and tech-x11) a while a go, see

There's an irrelevant definition of Compaq 56xx in sys/dev/pci/pcidevs
in the patches, which happened to be in my CVS tree. It does no harm,
but should probably be removed before the patches are commited.
