Smile Is there a better driver for the Intel 82852/82855 GM Graphics controller

I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on my old Acer Travelmate 661 LCi. Device manager tells me: info.linux.driver i915. Is there a better driver, and if yes, where can I get it and how can I install it. Thank you for help.

The driver you have is the open source one from intel. There may be a slightly newer driver, but there is no other driver than the one from intel.
