Description of problem:
While trying to install the Xserver with RedHat 7.3 on a Dell
Optoplex GX260, the probe cannot find the chipset.  The chipset is an Intel 
Extreme Integrated Graphics 845G/GL.  The Intel web site say they've sent the 
drivers to XFree86 and the different distributions, but to use the "VESA" 
driver in the meantime.  Do you have any timescale for its inclusion?

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-08-13 03:16:37 UTC
Intel i845 video is not supported in Red Hat Linux 7.3, nor in any
officially released version of XFree86.  The current rawhide X
server contains a backport of the i845 code from current XFree86
development code tree.  This backport is also totally unsupported,
and is provided only for convenience.

When XFree86 4.3.0 is released, and is integrated into an official
Red Hat Linux release, i845 will be supported.

In the mean time, if you could provide me with the output of the
following command, I can try to make sure the hardware autodetection
works in rawhide also.

lspci -vvn

Thanks for your prompt and informative reply.  I hope I've done the attachment 
correctly - I'm a newbie at Bugzilla


Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-08-15 01:42:33 UTC
i845 is configured in rawhide to use the i810 driver which provides
2D graphics.  It's not officially supported, but hopefully it works
for you.

Thanks for the info.
