Description Carlos Martín 2007-12-15 17:52:25 UTC
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.

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.

Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2008-02-21 18:14:45 UTC
This is included in current kernel builds.  Closing.
