This still does not work with 2.6.32.
Let me know if you need more info (log or ...).

It was with package linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686 (on which
linux-image-2.6-686 still depends).
I just tried with linux-image-2.6.32-2-686 (i.e. 2.6.32-8) and display
switch does not work as expected either...

Cheers,

Denis

could you please notify upstream on bugzilla.kernel.org
and let us know the bug number so that the issue can be tracked.

2.6.32-8 has latest stable 2.6.32.8 and we do not diverge vor KMS.

thanks

I missed at all that you were using those binary blobs from nvidia.
In that case we can't support you at all as this code is not released
and may well be a GPL violation. please bug your vendor nvidia directly.

with such a binary blog loaded one is no longer running an
open source box. It can do anything.
will have to close that bug report.

we hope to be able to support nouveau soon,
but currently lack mancraft from a motivated person to backport
2.6.33 KMS nouveau code.

I understand.
I'm sorry you wasted your time on this no-free issue.

> will have to close that bug report.

Why ?
Actually, I forwarded the bug (to kernel) as you suggested before.

I also hope for this...

sorry this is my fault, but they will tell you the same thing.
only by looking at the upstream report I had nvidia.ko sticking out.
this code is not released it can only be debugged by nvidia.

yep integration of it is happening fast, but it may miss the squeeze
boat, if it is backportable at all. Ubuntu is also trying afaik.

kind regards

That's of course true. I will submit a bug report there. Thanks for your
efforts and my apologies for wasting your time.

This would certainly be welcome...

Hi,

The upstream report finally lead to a solution. It seems that nvidia
module still rely on /proc/acpi/event to catch acpi events. Since
Debian disabled the deprecated option CONFIG_ACPI_PROC_EVENT, the file
does not exist anymore.
A simple workaround is then to rebuild the kernel with this option
set...

Cheers,

Denis
