Intel 945G chipset and Debian


Hi, I am a relative newbie to using X. I have a new Intel 945G-based MB. I am having trouble loading the desktop.

Does anyone know where I could find newbie instructions on how to load any drivers I need that might be missing and configure the server.

I had XF86 installed and could not make it work, so I just used apt-get to install the xserver-xorg 6.8.2.dfsg.1-7 package. Looks like I am having the same problems.

Thank you!

Jed

This particular chipset is problematic these days, it seems its too new and our folks from X and the kernel havent had a chance to caught up with it.

OK. But I am able to run the latest Knoppix and get a GUI up.

What should I look at under the Knoppix environment that I could then use and configure on debian?

Or is this just not possible?

I would just like to get my GUI and Network working.

Hrmmm... check the xorg.conf file from Knoppix. Copy the configuration and try to run it in your Debian box. About networking... thats a different matter entirely, nothing to do with X.
