When using an 2.9 driver compiled for 1.7 xorg, and 1.8 xorg, X
complains about ABI mismatch. Recompiling the driver is supposed to
fix this, but, I get the same error I got while building from git
sources. In fact I see it was already reported at gentoo bugzilla,
Well, I suppose I could just downgrade X..
Is 2.11 and beyond expected to work with Xorg 1.7? [ hmm, every time I
do this, I have to wait a while.. I'm using debian testing right now
(Xorg 1.7.5, intel driver 2.9.1) and it's working fine. ]
