Dell Dimension 3000 82865G Graphics Driver
I have an old Dell Dimension 3000 Desktop computer which used to run Windows XP but I installed Linux Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit onto it. It has a pentium 4 2.8Ghz, 1GB of ram(I think), a 120GB HDD...etc. Anyway, so when I install Ubuntu I try to install the graphics drivers for it. I go to intels website. There were two drivers available for Linux for my adapter:
the i915graphics and a intelgraphics driver. Both were tar.gz. When I try to install them, it can't for some reason. I tried "sudo sh" in terminal, I tried extracting the package and executing it...etc. Nothing works. It does give me a message in terminal though. If you want to see it, i'll take a screenshot and post it up. Anybody know if its a common problem, I couldn't find anything on the net? Anybody know a solution for it?
Side note: maybe this has something to do with it, but my ubuntu gave me full resolutions and everything out of the box without the driver...maybe it already has some sort of driver, but I still would like to install the native drivers for the best possible performance, thanks for any help!
