Ok, I am not sure what it is I am doing wrong. I installed the latest driver from the intel website for my graphic card. Thankfully I am happy to say I can now get a resolution above 640x480! Unfortunately now I can not get past 256 colors. I installed the .rpm from the intel site, I belileve correctly. Here is my X config file if this will help

I tried also to download the tar.gzip file as well, but whenever i ./install.sh I cannot run X.

I am completely baffled on what I am supposed to do, I am not normally the person to ask for help, but I have been working on this for weeks. I can't seem to find anything to help me with this

but I think that I have installed the driver correctly otherwise i would not be seeing this in the configure file

Code: [ Select ]
VendorName "Intel Corp."
    BoardName  "82845G/GL [Brookdale-G] Chipset Integrated Graphics Device"
    BusID    "PCI:0:2:0"
  1. VendorName "Intel Corp."
  2.     BoardName  "82845G/GL [Brookdale-G] Chipset Integrated Graphics Device"
  3.     BusID    "PCI:0:2:0"


thank you for the help

this was resolved, I was getting a bios error in my logs and just updated my bios. I must have compiled like 20 kernels in the process, and I think I reinstalled linux 6 or 7 times after I screwed everything up.

Thank god, everything is beutiful and running nicely now
