    I believe that the intel driver cannot run at depth 24 but only at a max of 16. Also the error message you are having is related to agpgart. You need to enable this in the kernel. Here is a link to a 3d how to that talks about agpgart.

    I don't think though that you can get 3d with your card. What is your lspci specifically for your graphics card.

    edit: I was wrong about 24 depth. Take a look at

    man 1810 (man page) this explains a lot about the driver. Then either disable agpgart (remove modules from xorg.conf ---just put a # in front of it and see what happens) if it still doesn't work repost xorg.conf with any and all changes and we'll start over.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL

    modifications made

    Thanks for the response spencerf, I've tried what you told me including the website modification about dri, but it still doesn't seem to work. I also don't know what you want me to put the # in front of in the xorg.conf file. I don't see a line containing the word "agpgart".
    Here is my lspci line for my video card:

    Code:

    I've posted my xorg.conf file with the modifications from the website you told me about, and the log file, I hope we can start from here fresh. I excluded uneccesary lines and replaced them with (...) If you need the entire file let me know.

    i realise this thread is almost a year old, but to anyone stumbling upon this with a similar problem:

    you need to...
    Code:
    sudo emacs /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    then go to the very last paragraph thing and change defaultdepth to the next lowest number (32->24->16 etc.)
    (you dont have to use emacs: vi, nano, whatever floats your boat)

    the problem is that a lot of intel video cards CAN run at a higher depth but a lower res. so just whack it down to what it can handle and it should go max. so this guy had 24, he would put it down to 16...
    then...

    Code:
    ps -aux
    look for /usr/bin/X in the last column and remember its PID (process ID). it will be 4 digits long. i will use 1234 (yours will be different... probably)

    Code:
    sudo kill 1234
    now, if you are using a livecd then it will load up x again in a couple of seconds so just leave it and smile when it is high res again.

    if you arent using a livecd, then it may not automate... no worries!
    Code:
    startx
    voila!


    NOTE: this works for gentoo and ubuntu, and every other system running X!

    I just resolved a similar or same issue with my intel 845 integrated video card. The issue was not giving the video card enough shared memory in the BIOS. I bumped this to 8MB and I can do 1600x1200 at 75Hz on my 21" Cornerstone p1500 monitor. Before, I could only get 640x480. Hope this helps.

    That's the trick...

    zbrown111 had it exactly right. I have the same chipset on an IBM NetVista 8305 and I too needed to bump the shared memory up in the BIOS to be 8mb. Otherwise the only res I could get with significant color depth was 640x480. Now all is good.
