Need a video card driver for linux.


I have an onboard video 'card', and it WILL NOT work with Linux! I need a driver for it. Windows 98 says that I have a:

Intel 810e Chipset Graphics Driver(DC133FSB133)4.11.01.1321

Thanks for any help that can be provided! Please help me because I NEED X!!!

i810

You should think about getting RedHat 7.1 or a newer dist. I know that RH7.1 has the necessary drivers for the i810 chipset. It will even auto-detect it and you don't really have to do anything. Very nice.

Intel i810e/i815e
2D Video Adapter

Driver Location: N/A
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notes:
The i810e cards do not work correctly with the drivers included in Red Hat Linux 7.


Beta drivers may be found at:

WHAT IS THIS? I THOUGHT MY CARD WORKED WITH RED HAT 7.1! I HOPE I DID NOT WASTE MY MONEY.

Does this not affect 7.1 because it is a later version? Thanks, and PLEASE respond! I'll go nuts!

Unless its not updated properly, if they didn't work in 7.1, it would have said 7.1 and not just 7 to my knowledge. Best advice is to go ahead and give it a try.

I can't speak for Red Hat 7, but I have personally installed Red Hat 7.1 on several machines with the i810 chip set and it worked perfectly. I have got the i810 to work with RH 7 but it takes a lot more work to do it. Make sure you have 7.1!
