Intel 965GM Video drivers Install CentOS 5

Postby r_naren22 » 2007/07/02 12:07:57

Hi Guys,
I have worked well CentOS 4.2 before and i have an average understanding with Linux.

I got this new laptop, with Mobile Intel 965GM Chipset, it also has this AGP.
I want to install the Intel drivers, i went to this web site http://intellinuxgraphics.org/install.html
I have problems when i use the commands that page.

So i have installed the following things
yum install git (this is to get the packages from intel site)
yum install autoconfig

when i run the autogen.sh i still have errors.

and also i didnt get the
3.1 Agpgart section on the link i provided.

please can any one give me a step by step procedure to install the drivers.
These days all the centrino laptops are coming with 965 intel chipset and i didn't get any good information from Google to install these drivers.

I guess this will become a reference topic to install the Intel drivers in centOS.

I want to use Beryl on CentOS, thats why i need those graphic drivers installed.

regards
Naren

`aclocal' is part of automake package, try to use "yum install automake" to install it first.

Unlike the proprietary drivers from ATI or nVIDIA, Intel drivers are open-sourced and already part of the CentOS (though it's older than the cutting edge one from Intel's site), so why do you wanna build it by yourself? It's error prone. If you do need a new drive, you may consider try the i810 packages from RHEL5.1 beta (released some days before) which includes an updated i810 driver.

What about Centos 4? Are there any video drivers available for Intel 965GM cards?
The git doesn't seem to work for me, so I am stuck with the generic drivers.
