thanks a lot, but I would like to use ui2 anyway so it would not be worth the effort...maybe it's an option if nobody comes up with a solution for ui2.
the thing which I don't understand is, why did it work so well in 7.10 and now it doesn't.
I consider you lucky if you've ever had UI2 working on Intel graphics in 0710 or 0810. Every time I have tried under 0710 or the 0810 alphas I would always get a garbled screen. Totallymaxed had suggested forcing the video ram to 128mb in BIOS to cure the garbled video problem, there is no option in my EeeBox B202 BIOS for this and xorg is reporting 256mb videoram in it's logs. Somewhere in the late alpha stage UI2 starting causing orbiter to actually crash.
The Intel driver from 0910 or 1004 work great with UI2. I would love to find a way to get it to work in 0810 but I havn't had any success. Hmmm, CVT has ported and compiled orbiter on 0910, I wonder if xorg could be upgraded on an 0810 system and the compiled orbiter binaries dropped in to maintain input functionality.... This is not elegant but *could* work, assuming it doesn't break anything else...
