intel video drivers
« on: September 07, 2010, 07:13:35 am »
I'm dong some experimenting with an Intel mini itx motherboard and everything installed great I put UI2 on the avwizard and it seems to show everything cool at a low res (1024x768), but I notice that the xorg driver is vesa not intel.  So I change it to intel, but it would seem that the 3150 that his mb uses isn't supported by the intel driver that are loaded. 

(I think I'm doing this right...)

so I downloaded the drivers from  http://intellinuxgraphics.org/2010Q2.html and try to compile them, but I get the message:

Quote
checking for XORG... configure: error: Package requirements (xorg-server >= 1.6 xproto fontsproto  randrproto renderproto xextproto x11 xextproto) were not met:                                                                                                                                                         

Requested 'xorg-server >= 1.6' but version of xorg-server is 1.5.2

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.                     

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XORG_CFLAGS
and XORG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.             
See the pkg-config man page for more details.                   


Any suggestions on how to get around this or am I just not going about this correctly? Is there another way to get X to run with the intel drivers?

Get rid of nvidia drivers

sudo apt-get remove -purge nvidia*

Then do the steps described about intel in this forum post.

see if that works
