David, this is a seperate issue. In general:

i830 is really dead old hardware (first Intel mobile platform). I remember the
Intel developers telling us that they don't have this hardware for testing
available at all. So it's more or less completely untested and fixes for any
issues are unlikely to come ...

The hardware is only dead to Intel. The thinkpad X30 has a keyboard that is
better than any of the current small laptops and has a large enough screen
without being too heavy or large. I don't believe that Intel will deliberately
cripple the driver simply to move people to newer hardware.

I have seen other reports of people having problems with intel graphics
chipsets and recent kernels, much more recent chipsets than the i830. I simply
wished to point out that the recent kernel and xorg updates seem to have
resolved the issues for the i830 and may also resolve issues for newer

The actual versions are kernel-2.6.30-rc6-git3-2-default and
xorg-x11-server-7.4-36.5 with the Xorg.0.log showing server 1.6.1.
