Angry Mandrake 9.1 with Intel 810 graphics

Ok - I'm a newbie of about a year or so to Linux so I know how to navigate around and mess with my conf files - a little bit, but I just can't figure this one out. I'm trying to install the intel i810 chipset graphics drivers onto my Gateway 400 SP+ Laptop. I've downloaded the dripkg-1.0-4.i386.rpm package and i've rpm installed it using rpm -ivh dripkg-1.0-4.i386.rpm. However, during the installation process it fails with a message saying

ERROR: AGPGART module did not compile

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.

I tracked down the dri.log file, in /etc/lib/dri.log and there are two lines repeated (once for each time I try this)...

make: Makefile.linux: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target 'Makefile.linux'. Stop.

Now, investigating this further, I find that there is a script that is being called from the rpm called /var/lib/dripkg/ In that script file there is a line that tries to do

cd drm

and that line fails. This doesn't cause the script to fail, but the next line tries to do a make on Makefile.linux which doesn't exist. I've searched from '/' for Makefile.linux and it just doesn't exist. I have no idea where to go from here. It's annoying because I can't get out of 800x600 in X and I want the full 1024x768 (or better) that my laptop can support.

I've already searched google and other groups for advice and info, and it's sketchy at best.

Any help is GREATLY appreciated in advance!!!

Same Problem

I'm having the exact same problem, and having no luck getting around it. The only difference is that I'm using Mandrake 10.0 with the 2.6 kernel on a Dell Inspiron 1100. Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.
