Hello,

I am having problems making Fedora7 graphics work with Q35 chipset - video
drivers
do not seem to recognize the hardware.
I installed the latest i810 driver and the Intel driver (iegd) to no
results.
Is this chipset supported on Linux? Intel says it is http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=2159&OSFullName=Linux*&lang=eng&strOSs=39&submit=Go%21
but did anyone actually make it work?

thanks

I have a i810 video card too and it works, I attached a copy of my xorg.conf (you should double check the monitor settings as yours should probably be different)

You also need to add support to the kernel if it isn't already there.. or you might need to load the module if it's compiled as a module...

You can type in the console:
dmesg | grep i810

you should be able to see if it has been detected by the kernel at boot... if it hasn't, it probably means you need to had i810 support to your kernel

I have GMA3100 video with that chipset, all integrated.
What version of i810 driver are you using? I've heard it should be at least 2.2

Unfortunately changing xorg.conf file does not help in my case.  dmesg | grep i810 returns nothing, but dmesg | grep vesa returns nothing too and graphics works with vesa.
I am trying to find 2.2 version of i810, I heard it supports Q35. Any suggestions are appreciated.

thnx
