Display Issue with Intel 82865g

I am having a few rather annoying problems with displaying things…and I’m unable to install the driver for my Intel onboard chipset >_>;

The driver I currently have is…(i think)

Display Info
Vendor: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
Model: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 865G 20080716 x86/MMX/SSE2
Driver: 1.3 Mesa 7.2

WHich isn’t running very well.

An example of browsers running oddly (whiting out at times, things like that)

And it’s not only Opera, it also occurs on Firefox.

I have tried a few things already, to no avail.

Driver for Intel 82865g, you say? It won’t install.

Compiling new agpgart module…

ERROR: AGPGART module did not compile

Compiling DRM module…

ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile

The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel modules.
Installation will be aborted. See the dri.log file for information on
what went wrong.

I updated the kernel, changed the memorybuffer to 8 instead of one…and it still refuses to install. Help would be greatly appreciated >_>;

I have intel:

Vendor: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
Model: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 965GM 20080716 x86/MMX/SSE2
Driver: 1.4 Mesa 7.2

Works perfectly.
I’m not sure your issue is graphics, more likely QT related.

You did not say what version of SuSE or desktop. More info. Maybe do us a:

zypper lr

Oh, my bad.

| Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh

–±-------------------±----------------------±--------±-------
1 | Packman Repository | Packman Repository | Yes | Yes
2 | repo-debug | openSUSE-11.1-Debug | Yes | Yes
3 | repo-non-oss | openSUSE-11.1-Non-Oss | Yes | No

5 | repo-source | openSUSE-11.1-Source | Yes | Yes
6 | repo-update | openSUSE-11.1-Update | Yes | No

I’m on a desktop PC, if that helps any.

Repo 6 Update needs to be Yes|Yes

then run from a su terminal

zypper ref

zypper up

Done and done. Nothing changed. (Still unable to install driver)

open a terminal and type:

glxgears

report what happens.

runs beautifully

3067 frames in 5.0 seconds = 613.308 FPS
3142 frames in 5.0 seconds = 628.256 FPS
3123 frames in 5.0 seconds = 624.545 FPS
3144 frames in 5.0 seconds = 628.656 FPS
3143 frames in 5.0 seconds = 628.577 FPS

To me it looks like you are all fine with your intel. The issue you have is not IMO your graphics chip.

I would look at upgrading kde4 to 4.2.2 factory

How is desktop effects for you? Do you have it enabled?

Nope. I’ll try updating KDE though.

Nope to what? Desktop effects?

KDE repos to add:

Desktop
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Factory:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.1

Community
Index of /repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/Community/openSUSE_11.1_KDE4_Factory_Desktop

Then from Software Management, filter by repo and select the New Desktop first and do Update all in this list unconditionally - then the same with Community but you may have nothing installed from there yet.

Any dependency issues, report back.

I followed the first directions fine, but the second repository doesn’t appear in the repo list (I have it downloaded.)

Give us aggain:

zypper lr
