intel chipset on new laptop
I'm trying to set up a Lenovo T61 to dual boot Windows Vista and Slackware 12. The partitioning and Dual booting worked flawlessly, and the only thing I have left to do is configure the graphics and sound.
I have no idea how to do this
heres the relevant output from lspci:
00:02.0 VGA Compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev0c)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev0c)
00:1b Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
Do I need to configure the graphics card as a module or directly into the kernel?
How will it look as a device in xorg.conf?
should alsa be compiled into the kernel as well? I didn't see an option for intel-hda there, but it seems to work as an option when I compile it from alsa-drivers (outside the kernel, as an external module) - the only problem is that alsaconf doesn't work properly
anybody thats running a linux system on this chipset, please help!
It's a core 2 ... should I compile as x64?
and another thing, after a kernel recompile, the entire boot process is blank - it could be the whole runlevel, but I'm not sure. A bit annoying, but kdm comes up, so its not unusable.
thanks in advance
