Default Intel graphics

I've got a notebook with a Sandybridge chip and integrated Intel graphics usually using the i915 driver on Linux.

It seems as though it is not recognized by the system because Xorg won't find any devices when I try to use the "intel" driver.

I've installed modular-xorg with the xf86-video-intel driver. i915drm is on by default in the kernel. Running lspci shows the intel video card.

Thanks a lot. That looks really promising. I'll check it out and report here how everything worked out.

Followed the instructions in the post linked above. If you have the right kernel version it works as far as I can say until now.

My machine booted with the kernel and X starts without any complaints about missing drivers.

I need to test a desktop environment to check out how it works. At the moment I've only got Fluxbox installed.

Hope it makes it into the NetBSD repositories soon.

Well, two days later everything broke done again without me knowing why that happened. Suddenly the kernle didn't load any Intel related modules because the device wasn't recognized as such one.

I would recommend you try the -current for new Intel graphics, you can find the snapshots here:
