intel 965gm (x3100) RHEL4 compiled driver


Hi,

For some reason, I have to use the relatively old version of RHEL4. I've been searching for weeks on the internet for a pre-compiled intel 965gm or x3100 driver. Being a linux newbie, I don't know how to compile a driver myself.

The reason I need this driver is that the native resolution for my laptop is 1280 x 800, and right now, with the VESA driver, the most I could get is 1024x768. I tried xorg.conf, tried 915resolution, none worked. So I guess I have to somehome find this graphic card driver.

Please give me a link or even better, compile one for me. Thanks!

Modules (drivers) need to be compiled against the current running kernel, which you did not mention anything about.
In the xorg.conf, try the "i810" driver instead of "vesa" and see if it helps.

Hi fatbaba,

I am facing a similar screen resolution related problem. I am using ScientificLinux4.5 which is based on RHEL4. I thought if I can update the graphics driver everything would be OK. But I don't know how.

My current version of xorg-x11 is 6.8.2. I am wondering if I can update the xorg-x11 version. But I don't know how to do that as well. Now I am stuck in a lower resolution display that I wish could go higher. These are my previous posts

Maybe they can be of assistance to you.

My kernel version is 2.6.9-22. Tried i810 and still have the same problem. Thanks for the reply.

It depends on what distro you run.. but also try
intel instead of i810
This is the newer driver.

I have done it on a laptop with the same chipset.

This was working on a Dell Latitude D630 but should also work for you.

You should install 915resolution.
And maybe also add an argument to the kernel:
vga=791
