Failed to Load Kernel Module "i915"


I compiled a new 2.6.19.1 kernel. Here is my video card:

Code:
VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
So I compiled two modules for it: http://alkos333.net/ss1.jpg

Here is an excerpt from /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

Code:
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
drmOpenDevice: node name is /dev/dri/card0
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: open result is -1, (No such device or address)
drmOpenDevice: Open failed
[drm] failed to load kernel module "i915"
(II) I810(0): [drm] drmOpen failed
(EE) I810(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed. Disabling DRI.
Here is a link to the whole file: http://alkos333.net/Xorg.0.log

Here is /etc/X11/xorg.conf generated by 'xorgsetup': http://alkos333.net/xorg.conf

Another interesting thing that happens is when I run 'lsmod', I get mo modules listed although I know that I have compiled about 10-15 of them.

As you mentioned that there is no modules loaded when you run 'lsmod', I wanted to know if you run 'make modules_install' after compiling your kernel ?

This command copies your newly compiled kernel modules into diectory /lib/modules/<kernel version>

Yeah, I ran make, make modules, make modules_install

Here is the output from 'ls /lib/modules/2.6.19.1':

Read my sticky on DRI (Link in my sig), was originally started for Intel chips...


As for configuring your kernel, 2.6.x only needs "make", "make modules_install"
