    i810 driver problem with startx


    I have recently completed a stage 1 install of Gentoo on my Dell Optiplex SX260 computer (P4, 2.0G, 1G RAM, Intel Integrated 845G video). In my make.conf file I have added the following:

    INPUT_DEVICES="keyboard mouse"
    VIDEO_CARDS="-810 -vesa"

    After completing
    source /etc/profile

    I try to startx; however, I get the following errors:

    (EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/
    (EE) Failed to load module "i810" (loader failed, 7)
    (EE) No drivers available

    Can anyone provide any advice on what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks for any help

    you haven't put the i810 module into the kernel. emerge x11-drivers/xf86-video-i810 and see what happens. if that doesn't work, try taking away the - infront of the 810 in VIDEO_CARDS. finally, modprobe the i810 driver, then start xorg
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    I tried emerge x11-drivers/xf86-video-i810, then when I went to startx I got the following errors:

    (EE) I810(0): shmget(lowmem) error: Functions not implemented
    (EE) I810(0): VBE initialization failed
    (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration

    Fatal server error:
    no screens found
    X10: fatal IO error 104(Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0"
    after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

    Thanks for any help
