It shouldn't be possible to compile both, i915 and intelfb module. They don't work together. 


drivers/video/Kconfig:

1157 config FB_INTEL
1158         tristate "Intel 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G/915G/945G/945GM/965G/965     GM support (EXPERIMENTAL)"
1159         depends on EXPERIMENTAL && FB && PCI && X86 && AGP_INTEL && EMBEDDE     D
1160         select FB_MODE_HELPERS
1161         select FB_CFB_FILLRECT
1162         select FB_CFB_COPYAREA
1163         select FB_CFB_IMAGEBLIT
1164         select FB_BOOT_VESA_SUPPORT if FB_INTEL = y
1165         depends on !DRM_I915

Doesn't this prevent the intelfb module from being compiled when i915 is selected?

I guess this has been solved in the meantime. Anyhow, please post a note if this is still a problem.

This is no longer a problem.  Thanks
