    DRI with Intel Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GM

    I'm going to embark on the adventure of getting DRI working on my laptop. I've tried installing the intel driver package but I get the following errors:

    make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=/opt/intel graphics/dripkg/agpgart-$
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
    make[1]: *** No rule to make target `graphics/dripkg/agpgart-2.0'. Stop.
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'
    make: *** [default] Error 2
    make -f Makefile.linux DRM_MODULES=gdg.ko modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/opt/intel graphics/dripkg/drm'
    make -C /lib/modules/ SUBDIRS=`pwd` DRMSRCDIR=`pwd` modules
    make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-'
    make[2]: *** No rule to make target `graphics/dripkg/drm'. Stop.
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-'
    make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/opt/intel graphics/dripkg/drm'
    make: *** [gdg.ko] Error 2

    A friend suggested that I try using the stuff from but I'm not entirely certain where to start. Do I need to completly recompile X in order to have DRI support for this chipset? Is DRI even possible?

    Any and all help would be appreciated.

    not sure if this will help, but do you have Load "dri" in the Modules section of you /etc/X11/xorg.conf file ?

    sorry if this doesn't help any


    Use Suse 10.1 and occasionally play with Kubuntu
    Also have Windows 98SE and BeOS

    Yep, I suppose I forgot to mention something. X -configure selects the "Vesa" driver, and the i810 driver doesn't recognize the chip (so I'm assuming the two aren't compatible)

    Intel Mobile and DRI

    I assume u run SW10.2 with 2.6.13x kernel. U need to know if xorg version supports that videocard/chip. Lspci can show display driver name? Then u can change vesa to 915X driver and adjust default display setting in /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Or run xorgconfig as root and select correct driver.
    Luckily vesa driver gives u desktop as fallback for making changes and doing research. Happy Slacking.
