Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 425786
Add support to E7221 Graphics adapter (0x258a) into kernel
Last modified: 2008-04-01 22:09:58 EDT
Description of problem:
E7221 graphics controller is a refurbised version of i915 graphics controller
bat with a different IG (0x258A) and diferrent HB (0x2588) Support it it's
trivial. There's no AGPGART support to this chipset currently so DRM doesn't
work and intel driver fails with X.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
There are other packages involved in full E7221 support.

IntelFB support (not tested)

DRM and AGPGART patches works for me on a supermicro P8SCT motherboard, and X
configured with intel driver. i810 Drivers also works but not so well.
This is included in current kernel builds. Closing.
