according to the Changelog file, the driver (testing/xf86-video-i810- should support rotation with DRI and XAA. for this it depends on a newer version of libshadow (1.1.0) which - i was thinking - comes with xorg-server. the problem is that even in the cvs checkout i cannot seem to find the proper files to update my libshadow from current's xorg-server (libshadow 1.0.0) to make it work.

without libshadow, neither rotation nor acceleration in rotated mode works. modifying the version number in hw/xfree86/dixmods/sfb*.h (have the checkout at work, sry) didn't help, instead a random filled square at the center of the screen appears. so obviously, libshadow is not yet updated to what xf86-video-i810 was developed against?!

any help apreciated.
This task depends upon

didn't work either. it gave me a b/w screen which seemed to run at a lower resolution as the actual screen. rotation did not work either.
but thanks. :)

What did the xorg log say when you used this 1.1.0 module?
