Description Chris Lee 2005-11-10 15:52:47 EST
Description of problem:

Missing PCI ID for an Intel 915-based graphics card on a Sony VAIO laptop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): hwdata-0.158.3-1

Additional info: The card works fine with the i810 driver in X.org if I manually
configure it, but the installer chooses VESA because the system doesn't realize
which driver the card should use.

The card reports these PCI IDs:

VGA compatible controller
   00:02.0 Class 0300: 8086:2592 (rev 03)
   [Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller]

Display controller
   00:02.1 Class 0380: 8086:2792 (rev 03)
   [Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller]

Odd. See the comments about the driver in 172556.

According to mharris, FC5 (devel) CVS was missing a few patches in the .spec
file for xorg (one of them being backported support for 915GM and others). They
have been added in xorg-x11-6.8.2-62 that is set to hit rawhide today...

Until the, it can be found under

It fixes the issue on my system!

Now we just have to wait for anaconda to be rebuilt on the fixed release and I
guess my installer issue will disappear as well.

Instead of static lists in hwdata, these should be moving to files included with
each driver package.

Fixed in xorg-x11-drv-i810-
