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
ftp://people.redhat.com/mharris/testing/unstable/xorg-x11/

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.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2006-02-03 08:34:16 EST
Fixed in xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.4.1.3-2
