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"
EndSection

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

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

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?

Thanks.

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