Problem loading graphics driver on Mint 4.0


Hello all.

I just performed a fresh install of Linux Mint 4.0, and just about everything works fine, but my video driver won't load. I know that the correct driver for my video card is the i810 driver, but when I attempt to load it, it won't work. I'm pretty sure I've used this driver before (with other distros), and I've used Compiz successfully which means I obviously have had my graphics driver working properly before.

Can anybody give me any advice?

Thanks.
-Pan

Cool

Try installing the following code
sudo aptitude purge envy
sudo rm ¬*rf /usr/share/envy
Edit//ignore this line-really stupid typo sudo apt¬*get clean
sudo apt-¬*get clean
wget http://www.linuxmint.com/upload/envy...untu11_all.deb
sudo dpkg ¬*i envy_0.9.7¬*0ubuntu11_all.deb
rm envy_0.9.7¬*0ubuntu11_all.deb
Then uninstall and install the driver again with envy

Actually someone in another linux forum had a similar problem....read

I was actually able to fix it. Someone at Ubuntu's IRC channel helped me out. All I had to do was edit my xorg.conf file and change the driver under Section "Device" from "vesa" to "intel." Once I restarted X, it worked perfectly.
