Gentoo 2006.0 and Intel i915


Hi,

I just installed Gentoo, and now I need to install the i915 drivers for my graphic card.

Where should I start? I know about the DRI project, should I go and grab the drivers there or can I find the using emerge --search ?

Sincerely, Jorgen

Thanks for your reply. I just changed the Driver info to 'i810' and the glxgears test went through the roof

From 300.000 to 800.000
