Squeeze Issue - GPU hangs
This happened after I performed a clean install of Debian Squeeze 6.0.5 on my Zenith PC with Intel Graphics card. The installation went smooth and the Gnome desktop is very fast and responsive. However, every now and then the desktop just freezes at certain events. This happened on a few occasions:
 When I opened an html file in the epiphany browser.
 A user logged out.
 A flash-drive was inserted.
When the desktop froze, I switched to a tty terminal by pressing "alt+f1" and performed a root login. When I then tried to switch to my main desktop, I read this on the black screen:
Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller
Is there a way to know whether Debian has installed the correct driver? I do have all the driver CDs that came with my PC, but they are specifically for the Windows OS:-((
Could any of you Debian Experts throw some light on this?

i845 video has been known to cause problems. Intel hasnt released the full documentation for the i845, and problems are likely to stay, or even get worse over time.
If you've got a AGP slot, a cheap old AGP card might be a worthwhile investment.
