Hi,

I've an old laptop with PIII and an i810 chipset.
Staring with kernel 2.6.33, loading the i915.ko will blank the screen.
This is on all 11.3 milestones and ubuntu lucid
All screens are blank, console and X11, but remote access is fine.
What to do?

I see several options here.

* blacklist this module
* Open a bugreport in *Ubuntu's* bugtracking system ;-)
* Use an ancient OS on ancient hardware
* Replace ancient hardware with current hardware

SCNR,
Stefan
