Same problem here with the console. Apparently using framebuffer
drivers may cause this, see , but I'm having the problem also with
boot parameter nofb.

Ah yes, this has been familiar to me during the few days I've tried
the latest stuff. Could you file a bug report about this one? I wasn't
sure if it was only my problem or not.

I can only speak about testing - you should get the latest drm/libdrm:
plus latest Mesa & DRI:
You also need the to-be-1.5 of Xserver:
and latest Intel 2D DDX driver:
When configuring the last one, make sure you see "DRI_MM" "yes".
As you go, you may try to think of enchancements to
http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/Building. At least the former should
IMO have mentions about libpciaccess and maybe some newbie's summary
for people wanting to test the newest stuff. I may be adding some of
this also but feel free to add any notes you think may help others.
