Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have an Alienware Sentia laptop with an intel i810 (82852 chipset) video card and I am trying to get X configured where I can have a 1280x800 resolution. This is the native resolution of the laptop LCD.
The video card is set at 1024x768. I cannot get it to go to 1280x800 even if i specify it in Xorg.conf
I did get a resolution like 1280x800 with an i810 before. But you had to specify a special modeline. I don't think you needed to rebuild DRI for just that. If you wanted 3D acceleration, you need to set DefaultDepth in xorg.conf to 16 (bits).
Anyway, seeing you've gone all this far, it's probably worth fixing that reversing. Post the output of dmesg here. I'm guessing it could be a misconfigured kernel.
Thats my guess is that I am missing something in the kernel. I realized I didn't have I2C configured and thats why framebuffer support wasn't working (i didnt know you needed that for intel video cards). I'm confused with the whole 3d acceleration part...all i want is to have X run at the native resolution of the LCD. It looks bad when it's not..you know..stretched fonts and images...
Here is the dmesg output:

i915: Unknown symbol drm_cleanup_pci
mtrr: 0xf0000000,0x8000000 overlaps existing 0xf0000000,0x800000
Just got the i810 working on an Acer 3613WLCi. Technically it's a i915GM, but they're pretty similar and from what I understand the i810 driver uses the i915 driver if needed. I got the same modprobe errors (unknown symbol dri_cleanup_pci) that you did when trying to compile and insert the dri i810 driver. Skip it. Compile kernel 2.6.14 w/ agpgart and dri support, and you can pick the i810 in the kernel options. Then compiled xorg 6.8.99, default config. Get it here Ran xorgconfig and selected the i810 as the video driver. Edit the xorg.conf file and added "1280x800" to each of the DISPLAY depths. Reboot and run xwmconfig to set my environtment to KDE. startx and all is well.
Note, this is on slackware 10.2. Some aspects may be different (i.e. xwmconfig is a slackware utility, not sure how your distro does it). YMMV. The i810 CAN do widescreen, you just need to give it a nudge.
Hope this helps. If you need help (or would like to give slackware a shot on the laptop) let me know.
Well I did compile DRI and agpgart support into the kernel. It still just stays at 1024x768. I changed it the DefaultDepth in xorg.conf to 16-bit, and that didn't do anything. Does this mean I have to recompile X so it compiles support for DRI, or am I not right?
I enabled DRM (Direct Rendering Manager) under Character Devices which is under Device Drivers. I thought you needed this to enable DRI (since I thought DRM was DRI or at least enabled DRI/3D Acceleration in X). I compiled them as modules along with agpgart.
Right now, i'm not near the computer but I will try adding those lines to xorg.conf and let you all know what happens.
