Description Habeeb J. Dihu 2003-01-17 23:33:00 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 
1.0.3705)

Description of problem:
There seems to be no support in RH8 (and I'll bet Phoebe as well, but haven't 
checked yet) for Intel 845-based graphics cards.  They are quite common these 
days on Dell PCs among others and it's extremely frustrating to see they're 
not yet supported.

Drivers for XFree86 and DRI are available from 
http://www.xfree86.org/~dawes/845driver.html -- please consider including them 
in the next major/minor release of RH.

Supposedly, the drivers will also be included in XFree86 4.3.0...but I doubt 
the rest of the world can wait that long.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Obtain machine with Intel 845-based graphics chipset (Dell Dimension 2325 
works well)
2. Attempt to run X
3. Fail miserably
    

Actual Results:  Can't run X in any meaningful fashion.

Expected Results:  To run X.

Additional info:

See above.
