Description of problem:
E.g. the Dell Optiplex 280 Gx comes with an integrated grahpics chip
called Intel 915G express. Installing RHEL out of the box, I can only
use this card together with the VESA driver. 
Searching around a little at Intel:s site I came to
http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-010512.htm
 where they are offering me a download of what looks to me as a
snapshot of the drivers from dri.sourceforge.net which actually let me
use the graphics card with the accelearated driver for Intel 865. What
are the chances of getting this driver included into RHEL 3?

The same applies to FC2. Do you want a seperate bugzilla for that one
or will this be sufficient?

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2004-08-07 17:11:12 EDT
Support for Intel i915 is currently in X.Org CVS development, and
will first be officially available from X.Org once X11 6.8.0 is
released.  We are currently in the process of packaging X.Org CVS
development and will be putting it into rawhide within a week or so
for Fedora Core 3 development.  Fedora Core 3 will be the first
Red Hat operating system to support the Intel i915 video hardware.
Red Hat Enteprise Linux 4 will be based upon this codebase and will
also support the i915.

There are no plans to backport this driver to XFree86 4.3.0 or
X.Org X11 6.7.0 at this time, however you can test the 6.8.0
packages in rawhide once they become available if you wish.

Thanks.
