Errors installing official Intel driver for 82865G graphics card.


I'm trying to install the official drivers for my 82865G card (on SUSE 10.0), but it comes up with the folllowing error:

Code:
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.
That log file says....

Code:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.13-15-smp/build SUBDIRS=/home/Jo/dripkg/agpgart-2.0 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15-obj/i386/smp'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `modules'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15-obj/i386/smp'
make: *** [default] Error 2
Makefile.linux:151: *** Cannot find a kernel config file.  Stop.
I'm sure it's blindingly obvious what the problem is, I just don't know how to solve it!

A confusing error message, atmo. It could be 4 causes at my opinion :
-You may be missing "agpgart" in your kernel.
-The driver may need this to be compiled as a module and you have it included
-Your kernel source isn't complete/differ from the one the drivers is expecting.

Installing drivers from source over "distribution kernel" (as opposite of vanilla kernel, from kernel.org) is usually a big fat headache. I highly suggest to try to find a package (i.e. : .rpm) suitable to your distribution instead of messing with the source. However, if you feel geek enought, you might want to recompile a fresh kernel from kernel.org, that might prove really easier to install drivers on.

Now I'm scared! I have a .rpm, but I'm very new to SUSE and don't know how to use Yast!

I'm not too good about YAST either, as I don't use SUSE. To install a RPM, you can usually use the command line, at least in RedHat/Fedora. The command is like "rpm -iv your_thing.rpm" usually (you have to be root of course).
However, I don't even know if this will work on SuSe and I don't know if you need any configuration to be do once the driver is installed... I suggest to browse google a bit about this, you are probably not the first one to try this
