I have a problem using 915resolution on my Gentoo installation.
Running «915resolution -l» says:
Intel 800/900 Series VBIOS hack: version 0.5.3
Intel chipset detected. However, 915resolution was unable to determine the chipset type.
Chipset Id: 2a108086
I’m running it on an HP Compaq 6720s laptop to get correct widescreen resolution in framebuffer.
lspci says about my video hardware:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GME965/GLE960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)
00:02 1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GME965/GLE960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)
have you searched the website http://915resolution.mango-lang.org/ if it's Card is supported or known to fail. Please place a reference into URL or write a comment, that reports this Card as working.
Please comment the `emerge --info` of your system and the `lspci -nn -k` from your system. This Vendor:Product Ids are very helpful to get highly significant answers from i.e. google.
The background for us is to determine if that's a Gentoo specific error or just a problem with upstream.
If I don't misremember, 915resolution is completely obsolete and no needed with latest intel drivers

Yeah. I know some BSDs don't have kernel modesetting, so I suppose it may still be needed somewhere, but I think we should really mask this package everywhere else.
Then, only mask without removal? (Even if I am unsure how does it really work on gentoo BSD setups :/)
If BSD team wants it, drop non-BSD keywords and transfer maintainership to them. Else I'd say treeclean it.
Agreed, this is no longer needed for Linux, if BSD wants to keep around then they can go ahead, otherwise I vote for treeclean.
FreeBSD ports still maintain this package. So I'd like to keep it at least for a while.
I guess BSDs cannot use current intel drivers, right? In that case bugs like this one won't even be resolved as 915* upstream is dead... :/
Current BSD kernels have support for Intel KMS, a small patch is needed for libdrm[video_cards_intel] and a larger one for libdrm[libkms] (bug 433403)
