Card Video Driver


Hi ppl,

I'm having some trouble on the search for the correct driver to my video card, an Intel Chipset. In the HP site, I can only find the driver in the windows format, and I can't find any other proper linux file on the Intel or Nvidia webpages, althougth I know they provide it. Could you help me downloading the correct file?

The properties from my video card and the webpages I said are below.

Thanks!

Code:
root@tairo:/home/tairo# lspci
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07)
HP Drivers:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...roduct=3979340

My computer is a Hp Pavillion Dv4-1465dx.

Please post the output of:
Code:
# lspci -v
This will give more information (verbose) that will help find the proper driver.

Thanks for the help, brucehinrichs!

The results of the lspci in verbose mode were like that:

A quick search turned up this. You have to register to download, but it looks like it is free. The link is from Intel's 'Embedded Design Center'. Not sure if this is the correct driver, as I am unfamiliar with this chipset. Maybe someone else on the forum can confirm or deny...

EDIT: It looks like the kernel module you need is intel-agp (hope this helps)

You might also look here. It's conflicting information, and it pertains to LinuxMint, but might help. After reading this I'm not so sure the intel-agp is the correct module, specifically:
Quote:
Intel Graphics use the mesa-dri-drivers that come bundled with your distro. I have Intel Graphics on my Dell laptop and the drivers are only updated when newer versions are released that match the abilities of the current kernel running in the distro. The current Mint (Mint 8) has a 2.6.31 kernel. I know that in Fedora, that kernel is able to use the newer mesa experimental drivers. You could check in the Mint repos and see if those drivers are available. In Fedora they are called mesa-dri-drivers-experimental
Has anyone else here had this issue?

EDIT: Just found this.

Slackware ships with the open source drivers for your GPU. Is there some reason you think you need to install something else?

You might learn more...

As adamk75 writes, you do not need the Intel driver. However, if you use the command "lshw", you may find more information on your graphics chip to further your search. See man lshw.

Ok, I think I was wrong with the driver. Maybe the problems I'm facing with 3D are not the driver's fault. Anyway, thanks for all the help and information!

And, for sure, I really need to learn more. That's why I'm with Slackware by now.
