    Default Lion Intel GMA X3100

    Hi guys,

    I'm running the Lion beta but can't get my graphics to work, its the Intel GMA X3100 chip, i'm almost certain it's because Lion runs a 64-bit kernel and i don't have the kexts for my x3100 that will work in 64-bit mode (they only seem to work in 32-bit mode).

    Does anyone know where to find a 64-bit compatible kext to get my graphics to work?

    Many thanks.

    There is no 64bit support with the Apple X3100 driver; Boot with the flag "arch=i386" to run in 32bit mode and the graphics should work; If not it could be due to your dsdt file.

    Tried that, but got gray screen with 3 much lighter horizontal lines. System Prefs/Display only gives me the option of 1024x768. I need 1280x800. Hopefully someone has a work around.
