QUERY: Debian support Intel gfx chips?
 
I have a onboard graphics chipset:

intel 82915G / GV / 910GL Express Chipset

Does Debian support this? Does it have drivers for it? I went to the intel website and the only downloads were for Windows :S

not sure what you mean by does 'debian' support intel chips. debian stable runs xfree86 which uses the i810 driver for all intel chips. so, yes you should have no problem running debian with your intel video card.

there were like 3 different iXXX versions and for each 3 there were like a dozen subversions.... so... I don't know which to pick..

You shouldn't have to pick them yourself. You can change the driver in /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 to i810 and it should work or isn't that what you want to know?

I wish Debian had auto probe like Red Hat. So you are saying my chip set is i810?

Debian has autoprobe utility called xdebconfigurator but you need to install it first. Try this:
Code:

$ su
# aptitude install xdebconfigurator
# xdebconfigurator
# dexconf
# reboot

If you have already installed x-window-system, kdm, and kde, then you should have a fair chance of being greeted by a graphical login screen after the reboot. :)

---I have already tried that. However X still refuses to boot. I have got blackbox already installed on my system as well...and tested under different color bit depths...

---I managed to boot X under the generic VGA driver, but -as you suppose- it sucks, since it loads no resolution greater than 640x480@8 bits....

---I am trying to accomplish this via
Code:

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86
...Don't know what else should I try.....

Thanks...

---I forgot to mention: Here they are the last few lines of the startx failed boot:
Code:

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 00:02:0
(--)Assigning Device section with no bus ID to primary device
(WW)I810: No matching device section for instance (Bus ID PCI:0:2:1 found)
(EE) No devices detected
