Intel 945 GM graphics card driver for Suse 9.3
I have two problems with Suse 9.3 but i think they are related. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 9400 with a 17 inch LCD screen. The two problems are a) Suse wont recognise the graphics card-an intel 945GM so the resolution and graphics are awful and b) i have the computer partitioned and when i come back into Suse from Windows the VBIOS LCD expansion is off so everytime i come back into Linux i have to F2 frantically and enable it again.
I have tried downloading the driver for 945 GM from Intel (IEGD_5_1) however i am stuck at two points:
a) Specify port drivers in your xorg file. Do i make a sperate section for them? ie 'Device' port drivers etc or do i put them in under the graphics card?
b) I cant install the patches for the GART driver however i think this is because i dont have anything in /usr/src/linux-2.6 only Modules.symver. I take it i need to download the source from DVD2
HELPPPPP i am at the end of my tether googling all the things that have gone wrong during installation
