Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 62885
install on laptop with i830 produces an invalid XF86Config-4
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:44 EDT
Description of Problem:
I installed the skipjack2 beta on an IBM Thinkpad R31 which contains an Intel
i830 graphics chip. The install produced an XF86Config-4 that would not work
(startx fails). It does not recognize i830 as a valid driver.
Running XConfigurator and selecting i810 as the graphics chipset and manually
selecting the amount of video memory allows X to start.
This is supported by the information at:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
default version that comes with skipjack2
install and when prompted to setup X by the installer choose i830 from the list
presented. Then when over, reboot and startx, and X fails to load.
