Intel 915GM

Hey all,

Im fairly new to Linux, and I just installed Mandriva Mini for the first time on my laptop.

Only problem is that the Grapics card isnt being picked up. I just got the latest version of the driver from the site, But I have no idea attal how to install it.

Any help would be great,
Thank you kindly

Check out this thread ...

Granted, it is for Slackware and not Mandriva, but the basic steps are still going to be the same.
