That doesn't make sense.

I'll assume that 2.6.27 was OK and that Linus's current nearly-2.6.28-rc1
tree is busted.
Comment 2 Rafael J. Wysocki 2008-11-09 09:30:14 UTC
arrow zhang, have you tried any kernels later than 2.6.28-rc1?
Comment 3 arrow zhang 2008-11-16 03:47:20 UTC
Ah, It works now while I installed "xf86-video-intel 20081116-1"(how to check the real version?),
and I using "kernel v2.6.28-rc5"
Thanks for your concern.
