Onboard Graphics Driver Intel 810E


Alright, I just installed slackware 10.2 on a friends P3 computer. IT has onboard Intel 810E graphics and I can't changed the resolution out of 600x480 until I get the drivers I think. If I'm wrong can someone tell me how to manually set the resolution because the monitor can go to 1024x768 but not through slackware so if it is possible without those drivers installed to make it 1024x768 that would be good enough for now, this small resolution is really getting annoying. Thanks.

Have you run xorgconfig to configure X?

Sorry, I did that about an hour ago. Well, I couldn't startx again. So there is drivers for the onboard I'm guessing but god I would really like to change the screen size manually since i can't do it in GUI.

Alright, since no one seams to have an idea since the intel onboard graphics drivers arent compatible.... i guess there is absolutely no way to manually resize the screen?

From running xorgconfig:
Code:
15  ** Intel i810 (generic)               [i810]
Sure that isn't what you need?

You can use xrandr while you're on X to change resolutions. As ntubski said, the correct driver you need is i810.

Where wouuld I put that in my xorg.conf? As for the i810 driver, I couldn't install it for some reason I can't remember why I'll try again. Also, I tried xrandr it wouldn't work besides 640x480 and 640x400.

EDIT: All the driver I can find are for XFree86 and I use X11 am I being a n00b or would that prevent install?

EDIT 2: Oh yea, the first ones wouldn't install because I have 2.4.31 driver and it required 2.2.x

Try my post at Enabling 3D Acceleration. It deals with the i810.

My xorg.conf using the i810 is here

It uses the drivers shipped with xorg in the original install of 10.2 (No need to download/install any more drivers )
