    -------------------------------------


    My video card is i810 definitely since I used to make it work.
    But this time, it is not working. I don't know why.
    It warned s'th about /dev/io. I don't know what it means exactly.
    My kernel has the card driver; and it currently uses /dev/agpgart ***
    When I ran 'X -configure', the above message was produced.

    Please help with this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Check here for information regarding this error message:

    X.Org Wiki - FAQErrorMessages

    Make sure your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file has the correct vertical/horizontal refresh rates and video drivers listed, and make sure you have the proper screen resolutions listed.

    I have read that page once already; yet it doesn't seem to help much.
    And I'm not quite sure about what the values you wanted me to make sure
    that they are accurate to my machine. How could I figure that out exactly?
    Please help enlighten... - -

    I have tried for too long; but still I haven't seen any light yet.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Derila.

    You'll need to check the user manuals for your hardware to determine correct settings. If you don't have them, you might be able to download pdf versions of them from the manufacturer website(s).

    Post the contents of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and output of this
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep -i vga
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Possible Solution

    Hello.

    I had the same problem and solved it for myself. I am running xorg-server-1.5.99.3
    with drivers xf86-video-intel-2.6.0, which you can download from Intel Linux Graphics .

    I found on intel.4(intel.4.gz) manual page that the support for SDVO and SDV TV is not fully implemented yet.

    after that I decided to create monitor sections in xorg, following the instructions on DualHead setup from intellinuxgraphics.org. This caused on its turn screens to be detected but with no valid modes.

    Some more modification in xorg.conf trying to disable the use of the TV and VGA adapter resulted in a working xserver. My advise is to try and install the newest intel-drivers, which are released 3 days ago at the time being, backing up your xorg.conf and to modify the sections as I describe below.


    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    	Identifier     "X.org Configured"
    	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    # you can keep your own inputdevice section, if you have different keyboard,
    # and mouse settings so I commented it out here
    #	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    #	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    #	Option         "AllowEmptyInput" "false"
    EndSection
    I will skip the inputdevice and files sections from my xorg.conf because its better to stick to your current configuration on that.


    Code:
    Section "Device"
    
    	Identifier  "intel"
    	Driver      "intel"
    
    #       Added for dualhead settings.
    
    	Option       "monitor-LVDS"   "LCD"
    	Option       "monitor-VGA"    "VGA"
    	Option       "monitor-TV"     "TV"
    
    #      Options below checked out, because in my case they arent detected
    #      During boot time of xorg server.
    
    #	Option       "monitor-TMDS-1" "TMDS-1"
    #	Option       "monitor-TMDS-2" "TMDS-2"
    
    EndSection

    And now for the monitor sections. The setting in here are meant to override the autodetection of the linuxdriver, that in my caise failed because no TV was attached.....


    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier "LCD"
    #	UseModes   "Custom Modes"
    #	Option     "PreferredMode" "1024x768"
    	Option     "Ignore" "false"
    	Option     "Enable" "true"
    EndSection
    as you can see this is the only output section that I have enabled and not ignored, as opposed to the next sessions. I'm not realy sure if you have a notebook or a pc with an intel videocard onboard, otherwise it can be possible that in your case you must swap the contents of the videosection lcd with vga.

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier "VGA"
    	Option     "Ignore" "true"
    	Option     "LeftOf" "LDC"
    #	UseModes   "Custom Modes"
    #	Option     "Position" "1024 0"
    #	Option     "Enable" "true"
    	Option     "Enable" "false"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
    	Identifier "TV"
    #	Option     "PreferredMode" "1024x768"
    	Option     "Ignore" "true"
    	Option     "Enable" "false"
    EndSection
    And now finally the section "Screen" :

    Code:
    Section "Screen"
    	Identifier "Screen0"
    	Device     "Intel Corporation 945GM integrated Graphics Controller"
    	Monitor    "LCD"
    #	Monitor    "VGA"
    	DefaultDepth 24
    	Subsection "Display"
    	    Viewport 0 0
    	    Depth 16
    	    Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    	    Virtual 2048 2048
    	EndSubSection
    	Subsection "Display"
    	    Viewport 0 0
    	    Depth 24
    	    Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    	    Virtual 2048 2048
    	EndSubSection
    EndSection
    If you in your case find that you use VGA instead of LCD, of course than you must also use 'Monitor "VGA" in your screen section instead of "LCD".

    I hope this will solve your problem.

    Regards, Ronnie van Aarle.
