I have been using the patched i810 drivers from
happily for some months with xorg 6.8.
After upgrading to 6.8.2, the driver was overwritten and the page not
providing the 6.8 driver anymore, I saw me forced to switch to xorg 7.0
what I did.
Xorg works, but although I replaced the intel i810 driver with the one
from the page, the X log tells me that
> (WW) I810(0): Option "ForceBIOS" is not used
I am pretty sure that it's the right driver file I replaced, because
when I rename it x doesn't start, complaining that the driver isn't there.
Is there a reason why ForceBios doesn't work for me?

Btw, is alanh[at]fairlite.demon.co.uk dead? I wrote a mail 3 days ago,
but nobody answered.
