A client of mine hired me to make a RedHat database server out of a brand new Dell PC that they just bought last week. I did a custom install of RedHat 7.3 and everything works great (including the db ) There's only one small nagging problem...the video is on the mobo ( intel extreme graphics 845G ). The only driver I could get to work was the generic "vesa" driver which only supports 640x480 res. It's really not that big a deal to me because the thing won't be running the X server very often but when it does I'd like it to look as nice as possible. Intel's site says the have submitted drivers to all the "major" linux distros but I'm not sure how old that info is.
So, I guess the question is... does anyone here have any experience with the Intel 845G chipset? or is this just unsupported for now?
Thanks for any input
