Description Rex Dieter 2006-03-09 20:01:23 UTC
Despite having claimed to have been fixed in bug #163602, we're seeing the same
problem on a batch of new DELL GX620's purchased last week (using RHEL4 U2). 
Kickstart install autodetects to use vesa driver.  Manually using i810 driver fails.

New chipset?

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-03-09 20:10:18 UTC
OK, I lied.  Testing again (without typos this time) by manually using the i810
driver *does* work.

Now the problem is that this chipset isn't pnp'ing as i810.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-03-09 20:27:04 UTC
adding to /usr/share/hwdata/pcitable:
0x8086  0x2772  "Card:Intel 945"

adding to /usr/share/hwdata/Cards:
NAME Intel 945
CHIPSET Intel 945

made lspci not say "unknown device" and made system-config-display --reconfig
properly detect the chipset.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2006-03-09 20:33:08 UTC
Re-assigned to hwdata...

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-03-09 20:45:06 UTC
Apparently a dup of bug #170517, but I can't confirm that (not authorized to
view it).

Comment 5 Phil Knirsch 2006-07-11 14:05:30 UTC
Should be fixed in next hwdata package for RHEL4U4 which includes an update of
the pci.ids and pcitable that has the missing entries.

Cards already contains an entry for the Intel 945 chips:

NAME Intel 945

So should work with U4 then.

Read ya, Phil
