I've been trying to get X to work on a Dell Optiplex GX100 which has
integrated Intel 82810-DC100 graphics. I've previously had few problems
getting the i810 driver to work (except having to fix the VideoRam size
due to memory allocation problems). Whenever I try and get the i810 driver
to work with the 82810-DC100, the screen just blanks and the console is
locked (can't change back to text console). Dell do provide XF86Config
files on their website and I notice that they include the dri module (not
really any other differences). I also note that NetBSD doesn't currently
support DRI with XFree86. Is my problem likely to be down to the lack of
DRI support? Is there no non-DRI fallback?
