according to the http://www.pcidatabase.com vendor 8086 (Intel) device
2A02 is a Intel 965GM

that should work fine with xorg-x11-drv-i810

Thanks, John. What should I do if it doesn't?

Package xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.6.5-9.25.el5.i386 already installed and
latest version

Any suggestions? I asked for help on the Xorg list yesterday but no
reply as yet.

Best,
Aleksey

I rarely run X so take my advise with a grain of salt.



I noticed that xorg-x11-drv-i810 package had several different drivers
in it, i810 and intel, the intel one is the right one for the 965GM
chipset.





# rpm -ql xorg-x11-drv-i810

/usr/lib64

/usr/lib64/libI810XvMC.so.1

/usr/lib64/libI810XvMC.so.1.0.0
