I am a newbie here, and have trued reaading everything on this card. I still cant get past 640 X 480 in KDE. When I do an xorgcfg, I select the i915, but it wont even let me start X then, I have to go back to VGA.

FOrgive my stupidity, but I see people mentioning GLX and recompiles. Why when I do a glxinfo do I get this:

name of display: :0.0
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
Error: couldnt find RGB GLX visual

I would appreciate any help

Steve

First make sure the i915 driver is compiled as a module. Then consult your /var/log/Xorg.0.log for errors.

What kernel are you using? Try this if you are not using genkernel:

As root:
Code:
cd /usr/src/linux

Then run:
Code:
make menuconfig


Menuconfig is one way to configure your kernel, the GUI way. Configure your kernel options as follows:

**NOTE** For: "Linux Kernel v2.6.15-gentoo-r1 Configuration"

Code:
Device Drivers  --->
    Character devices  --->
        <*> /dev/agpgart (AGP Support)
        <*>   Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support
        <*> Direct Rendering Manager (XFree86 4.1.0 and higher DRI support)
        <M>   Intel 830M, 845G, 852GM, 855GM, 865G
        <M>     i915 driver



Do not change anything else. Once you have saved the changes, run this to compile and install your kernel.
Code:
make && make modules_install install



If this doesn't work. Post the output of "lspci" and your /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

You didn't mention your kernel version:

Code:
uname -a


Also, did you verify your kernel configuration?


I noticed you have the following modules commented out:
Code:
# This loads the GLX module
# Load "glx"
# This loads the DRI module
# Load "dri"


If you want GLX support, the module must load. Try uncommenting both of these.

booyaa,
I have the same graphics, and it works great!
Follow http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/dri-howto.xml. Here is a piece of my xorg.conf - you may find it usefull:
Code:

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1024x768"
        ViewPort    0 0
    EndSubsection
EndSection

EndSection

 Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
 EndSection


If you want to enable DRI do not compile your Intel into your kernel. Just carefully follow the howto. :)

Good luck! :wink:
