Intel graphic driver(xf86-video-intel) won't work
I've just compiled a driver which I downloaded from intellinuxgraphics.org and changed xorg.conf to:
I did <modprobe intelfb> before it.
Here how it looks in module lib section:
My laptop is Lenovo R61i with Debian etch n' half.
X Window System Version 7.1.1
I've never had the driver from intellinux (or whatever their website is) work properly. There should be a driver in your kernel for that video card already. But what specific intel video card do you have?
I have an Intel 855GM card and while I have intelfb in the kernel, I never have specified it in LILO. Also, in my xorg.conf, I specify "i810" for my card and it works great. I think "intel" is the "generic" driver, i.e. it looks at what you have and then loads the proper module, but I could be wrong.
I'd recommend googling for "855GM gentoo wiki", just substitute 855GM for your card. Their wikis have so far been correct. They tell you exactly what to do.
