Ok, getting past the GTT Bug, i can see the desktop :). (Well, almost). The Driver is crashing and throwing me into the kernel debugger, saying:
PANIC: ACQUIRE_SEM_ETC: called from an interrupt handler!!!
area 00490668 (kernel_intel_text) addr 00100000 size 00086000
Thread: idle thread 1 Team: kernel_team
Is this an easy bug, or a hard bug? :). (Do you need more info ofcourse too?).
Please ignore that, it seems i can't reproduce it.
The driver now gets to the desktop, and it does have that black stripe, but nonetheless it gets there. What i'll do is go away and learn *alot* more about driver development, specifically graphics hardware, and continue to tamper with the driver.
That is to say, i'll go back to learning/lurking :). Thx anyway Axeld!
