Intel 845GV graphics with ubuntu


Hi, ive been trying to configure the xserver to use my Intel 845GV (64meg) graphics properly, but when I go to the system monitor on ubuntu 6.06, it says there is 496mb of ram in use, which leaves 16mb max for the graphics. I have downloaded the tar.gz (http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...ProductID=865), and installed this succesfully, and have also converted the rpm to deb with alien, and installed that, but the graphics is still not 64mb. Below is the section of xorg.conf
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier	"Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device"
	Driver		"i810"
	BusID		"PCI:0:2:0"
	VideoRam	64000
EndSection
It appears that the driver from intel hasnt altered the config file - i did a simple dpkg-reconfigure and entered 64000 as the amount of video memory. Below is lspci output
Code:

AFAIK... the system monitor already includes the memory being eaten by graphics....

ok, I've now downloaded a new driver from intel as the previous one did not alter the xserver conf file. The output is below:
Code:
DIRECT RENDERING OPEN SOURCE PROJECT  -  DRIVER INSTALLATION SCRIPT

[ http://dri.sourceforge.net ]

==========================================================================

Welcome to the DRI Driver Installation Script

The package you downloaded is for the following driver:

Driver Name    : gdg
Description    : Intel 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G/915G Driver
Architecture   : I386
Build Date     : 20040604
Kernel Module  : gdg

Optional Information

Driver Version      :
Special Description :

Press ENTER to continue or CTRL-C to exit.



DIRECT RENDERING OPEN SOURCE PROJECT  -  DRIVER INSTALLATION SCRIPT

[ http://dri.sourceforge.net ]

==========================================================================

Select from the following options:

  1. Install driver (default)
  2. Uninstall driver

Enter reponse [1-2], or CTRL-C to exit

get_osname()










DIRECT RENDERING OPEN SOURCE PROJECT  -  DRIVER INSTALLATION SCRIPT

[ http://dri.sourceforge.net ]

==========================================================================

The script will now compile the agpgart module and DRM kernel modules
for your machine.

Press ENTER to continue or CTRL-C to exit.


Compiling new agpgart module...

ERROR: AGPGART module did not compile

Compiling DRM module...

ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile

The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel modules.
Installation will be aborted. See the dri.log file for information on
what went wrong.
Here is dri.log:
Code:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/build SUBDIRS=/home/shaun/Desktop/dripkg/agpgart-2.0 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/build'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/build'
make: *** [default] Error 2
Makefile.linux:151: *** Cannot find a kernel config file.  Stop.
I released that there was nothing in the directory /lib/modules/2.6.15-26-386/build (there was no biuld folder), so I typed as root
Code:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.15-25-386/build SUBDIRS=/home/shaun/Desktop/dripkg/agpgart-2.0 modules
(In my modules directory I have 2.6.15-23-386 (no build) 2.6.15-25-386 and 2.6.15-26-386 (no build)
Which gave the following output

Can anyone help me on this one?
