Many thanks, this got me going.



(Still have some strange crash problems when changing video mode, but I can live with it for now)

this from my opensuse system, on a i915 chipset.

Section "Device"
BoardName "915 G"
BusID "0:2:0"
Driver "i810"
Identifier "Device[0]"
Option "NoDDC"
VendorName "Intel"
EndSection

the i810 driver is constantly being updated, and should support he i945
without problems.
