intel i810 problem
I have integrated i810 Intel video card with 1MB memory.
Display setup (RH9) claims that my video memory is 16MB.
When I try to switch to 1Mb manually X windows won't start.

Also my XFree86 Log says:
(WW) I810(0): xf86AllocateGARTMemory: allocation of 1024 pages failed
(Cannot allocate memory)

So it seems like there is some problem

There is no problem though in WinME. The card seems to work fine and I never had problem with any games. In Linux I can't run Tuxracer. It moves 1 screenshot every 2 secs.

Any ideas on how to fix my problem. Thanks.

Are you sure that your video card only has 1 meg of video memory? If it does, I suspect that it'll "share" the system memory to bring it up to something more reasonable, like 16 megs. You won't have 3D acceleration without DRI from

Just grab the proper binaries and install them, then boot back into X, run glxinfo and you should see a line resembling:

Direct Rendering: Yes

This is what you want, if it still says no (as I assume it does now) then you'll have to do more twiddling before you can get 3D acceleration.

Just let it think it has 16MBs
