1.224.1. RHBA-2010:0262: bug fix and enhancement update

Updated xorg-x11-drv-i810 packages that fix several bugs and add various enhancements are now available.
xorg-x11-drv-i810 is an Intel integrated graphics video driver for the X.Org implementation of the X Window System.
Note that this package provides two drivers, 'i810' and 'intel'. The i810 driver is supported for i8xx series chips, up to and including i865. The intel driver is supported for all i915 and later chips.
These updated packages resolve the following bugs:
* previously, there was an issue in the CRT detect code in the driver. Consequently, after updating the xorg-x11-drv-i810 package, the X server may have failed to boot, returning the error message:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting
With this update, this issue has been resolved. (BZ#521350)
* previously, using xrandr to change the screen resolution of a video device under the Intel Q43/Q45 chipset sometimes failed. After attempting the switch, the screen may have blanked and gone out of sync. With this update, this issue has been resolved. (BZ#511896)
Additionally, these updated packages provide the following enhancements:
* 2D support for the integrated graphics device found in Intel Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 processors. (BZ#517356) * support for the integrated graphics in the Intel B43 chipset. (BZ#525276)
All xorg-x11-drv-i810 users should upgrade to these updated package which provides these bug fixes and enhancements.
