I am looking for solutions, but can you explain what you mean with
running fbdev X server on top of the i915 framebuffer ?

Well, i915 with KMS does create a "normal" framebuffer device. It should
be possible to run the old and simple fbdev X server. I'll have to find
out what I have to put into xorg.conf to achieve that, though.

From my mind:

cat > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-device.conf << EOF
Section "Device"
Identifier "fbdev"
Driver "fbdev"
EndSection
EOF

Oh - and for the flickering screen, there's
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=596844 ;-)

Yes, that's an entertaining one. ;-)

Best regards,
Stefan
