Hi,

and thanks for your report.

AFAICT from the upstream bug, the guilty commit is on the kernel side:
| drm/i915: Add pipe A force quirk for some laptops (Closes: #608148)

and that commit got included in the kernel update for the 6.0.1 point
release:
http://packages.qa.debian.org/l/linux-2.6/news/20110307T195907Z.html

So downgrading your kernel to the previous revision (2.6.32-30) should
make your cursor become available again.

Kernel maintainers, you apparently want this commit to fix that:
| commit 897493504addc5609f04a2c4f73c37ab972c29b2
| Author: Chris Wilson <chris@chris-wilson.co.uk>
| Date: Sun Sep 12 18:25:19 2010 +0100
|
| drm/i915: Ensure that the crtcinfo is populated during mode_fixup()
|
| This should fix the mysterious mode setting failures reported during
| boot up and after resume, generally for i8xx class machines.

Package: xserver-xorg-video-intel

Severity: important


The latest update to debian squeeze seems to have introduced the Bug reported here http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=550942 .
(Upstream bug report can be found here https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=29413 .),

i.e. after boot-up the mouse pointer is invisible (though otherwise fully functional).

As described in the upstream bug report going through a hibernate or a suspend cycle makes the mouse pointer reappear.

Apparently the fix for this problem that the upstream bug links to was not included in the latest squeeze update.


I got a similar problem after installing
debian-6.0.1a-i386-businesscard.iso

I can't reproduce the suspend-step because the display stays dark when
resuming.
