Thumbs up intel 865g onboard graphic


How do i get this workin???
Kernel relevent info:
Device driver > Graphic support >Intel ... .... 865g support compiled as modules (With debug message)
Device driver > Character devices > /dev/agpgart is builtin
> Intel 440lx/bx/gx, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support compiled as modules
>DRI support compiled as modules
> Intel 830m, 845g, 852gm, 865g compiled as modules
> I915 driver support

Some (maybe relevent) log
from sys.log
Feb 13 12:54:45 Roxy kernel: [drm:drm_fill_in_dev] *ERROR* Cannot initialize the agpgart module.
Feb 13 13:06:48 Roxy kernel: intelfb: cannot acquire agp
Feb 13 13:08:06 Roxy kernel: intelfb: cannot acquire agp
Feb 13 13:08:48 Roxy kernel: [drm:drm_fill_in_dev] *ERROR* Cannot initialize the agpgart module.
Feb 13 13:15:12 Roxy kernel: [drm:drm_fill_in_dev] *ERROR* Cannot initialize the agpgart module.

When doing modprobe intelfb:
intelfb: Framebuffer driver for Intel(R) 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G/915G/915GM chipsets
intelfb: Version 0.9.2
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:02.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 20
intelfb: Cannot reserve FB region.

modprobe intel-agp:
FATAL: Error inserting intel_agp (/lib/modules/2.6.15-mm2/kernel/drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.ko): Invalid argument

modprobe i915:
[drm] Initialized drm 1.0.1 20051102
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:02.0[A] -> GSI 16 (level, low) -> IRQ 20
[drm:drm_fill_in_dev] *ERROR* Cannot initialize the agpgart module.
DRM: Fill_in_dev failed.

/dev/agp do not exist

Kernel Version:
2.6.15

I googled around quite a bit and nothing i found helped me.
I had this problem for a while but i putted it aside because i did not need this driver, a simple vesa would work fine.
I tried D/L the drivers from intel but the compilation fails, it says i need the latest kernel modules.

now i have a few 3d program to run.

Code:
Device driver > Character devices > /dev/agpgart is builtin
Try it as module. Also, look at this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=402003

/dev/agp as module gives a invalid argument at boot time.
I also tried modules/builtin possibility between agp, drm, framebuffer for i810 ,i830, i915
I also just updated my BIOS and made sure that initial display is set to AGP

New kernel info:
graphic suppport:
Intel 810-815 as module
with vesa genralized timing formula
with DDC support

Device driver > Character devices > /dev/agpgart is builtin
> Intel 440lx/bx/gx, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support compiled as modules
>DRI support compiled as modules
> Intel 810 compiled as modules

I can now manually modprobe i810 & i810fb without error
Module Size Used by
i810fb 37300 0
vgastate 9600 1 i810fb
i810 22528 0
drm 72724 1 i810

modprobe intel-agp:
FATAL: Error inserting intel_agp (/lib/modules/2.6.15-mm2/kernel/drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.ko): Invalid argument

I know i have a 865g , i bought the board brand new and still have the book, but i think i remember reading somewhere that i810 still works with 865g.

If it can help, the Board is:
P4 TITAN GA-8IG1000MK (rev. 2.0) with intel 865g chipset.

at this point if i load X with i810 in xorg.conf i get:
(EE) module ABI minor version (8) is newer than the server's version (7)
(EE) Failed to load module "i810" (module requirement mismatch, 0)
(EE) No devices detected.

xorg.conf:
Section "Module"
Load "extmod"
Load "type1"
Load "glx"
Load "freetype"
Load "dbe"
Load "v4l"
Load "dri"
EndSection

Section "Device"
BoardName "865 G"
BusID "0:2:0"
Driver "i810"
VideoRam 65536 # I added those from following the like u gave me

Option "Devicepresence" "on" #
Identifier "Device[0]"
Screen 0
Option "Rotate" "off"
VendorName "Intel"
Option "Accel" "on"
EndSection

Section "DRI"

EndSection

I've had luck with DRM i915 as a MODULE, not built-in, just like I said in previous post.

If you want a funtioning 2.6.15 config, get it on this page: www.cwwilson721.dyndns.org/slack

It also has a xorg.conf in there
