Updated release of the Pg.i830 driver  
Hello,

we can we expect a newer and updated release of the Pg.i830 driver ?

Regards,
Jacek
Re: Updated release of the Pg.i830 driver  
Hi,

we are testing Pg.i830 driver on the board with i965GME device (0x2a12).
From time to time Photon starts fine, but sometimes GUI stops at black screen
(this is a random issue).

Maybe somebody can take a look at this problem ?

It would be great to have 0x2a12 on the list of supported devices...

Regards,
Jacek

Hi Nick,

You don't need to create double or similar posts in several topics. Post 
out (in the first topic) PCI IDs of yours devices.

Re: Updated release of the Pg.i830 driver  
Hi,

Is there something new concerning the Pg.i830 matter ?

Regards,
Jacek
Re: Updated release of the Pg.i830 driver  
Hi Jacek,

I reported the same problem with the 2a12 on 10/15/2009 (topic 10291).
I also reported the problem with the little black lines when I restarted photon.
Maybe you have to wait a long time for the fixes...

Best regards,
Werner

Hi Werner,

Looks like that I found a workaround for the "little black lines" issue.
I tested it on two machines, no problem so far.

To my knowledge the second problem can be fixed only by the Pg.i830 modification...

Regards,
Jacek

This version should work fine either with LCD and CRT displays...

Re: Updated release of the Pg.i830 driver  
Hi Jacek,

thank you for sharing your results with me. 

I can not test your work-arount right now. A year ago I had a test board with the  0x2a12 chip (Adlink). But with this 
problems we could not use it, so we gave it back.
As we usualy start photon just once, the "little black lines" issue is a minor problem for us. The main problem was, 
that it stoped with a black screen at a chance of 50%.
Since then I waited for updates that might fix the problem...

As I see today, there is a new driver version. 
Do you still have the board with the 0x2a12 device ?
It would be great, if you could test the new version with this device and tell me if the "black screen" issue is fixed.

Best regards,
Werner

Hi Werner,

I should receive the board this week and then I will immediately test a new driver.

Re: Updated release of the Pg.i830 driver  
Hi Werner,
  we have a cpu with the 0x2A12 chipset from Adlink and we tried the latest pg.i830 driver but we still experience the 
black screen problem when we start Photon with a 50% probability. This bug seems not to be fixed with this last release.
 Can we expect this problem to be fixed soon? Is there any update or beta version to be tested?

Many thanks,
Marco
