Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 184551
Dell GX620 using vesa, not i810 driver
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:23 EST
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.

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.
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.
Re-assigned to hwdata...
Apparently a dup of bug #170517, but I can't confirm that (not authorized to
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
