Re: i915 driver troubles in Betsy

Nope, not yet. I'm kind of torn right now. On one hand (the rational one) I'm thinking, "Alright, so Betsy isn't working, but Jessie and Sid are. You have old hardware, and there's not much point in keeping on trying when you have alternatives, so just give up and be satisfied with what you have." ...
