Re: FC5 laptop install; incorrect graphics driver

Hi all,

I just did a fresh install of FC5 on my laptop, which has a Intel
915GM graphics chipset. For some reason, anaconda didn't correctly
detect this and chose what appears to be an incorrect graphics driver;
it displays at only 800x600 (should be 1200x800) and doesn't repaint
the screen properly; also, there is no visible mouse pointer. Here is
the relevant section of xorg.conf:


Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "Monitor0"
       VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
       ModelName    "Unknown monitor"
### Comment all HorizSync and VertSync values to use DDC:
       HorizSync    31.5 - 37.9
       VertRefresh  50.0 - 70.0
       Option      "dpms"

Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Videocard0"
       Driver      "i810"
       VendorName  "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device"

Section "Screen"
       Identifier "Screen0"
       Device     "Videocard0"
       Monitor    "Monitor0"
       DefaultDepth     16
       SubSection "Display"
               Viewport   0 0
               Depth     16
               Modes    "800x600" "640x480"

Add "1200x800" before the "800x600" mode above and then restart X. (ctl-alt-backspace or other methods).



Can someone tell me how to fix this?

If you go out of your mind, do it quietly, so as not to disturb those
around you.
