Re: Intel graphics users: send me your VBIOS



Hey,

got a G45 here and it has VGA, DVI and HDMI. The monitor's attached to
the DVI port.

Output follows:

[heph dhara ~]$ sudo dd if=/dev/mem of=/tmp/rom bs=64k skip=12 count=1
[sudo] password for heph: 
1+0 records in
1+0 records out
65536 bytes (66 kB) copied, 0.00024473 s, 268 MB/s

Thanks for the hard work!

cheers
heph
