  1. Can't get screen res > 800x600 on Dell GX270 (tried xorg.conf, install driver)

    Have a Dell GX270 running FC6 Linux with what /etc/sysconfig/hwconf
    reports as an
    Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller. Can't get
    screen res greater than 800x600.

    First I tried modifying /etc/X11/xorg.conf (added modes 1280x1024 &
    1024x768). No good.

    Then downloaded Linux driver from Intel: i915Graphics.tar.gz. Ran
    install.sh, received:
    "... Compiling new agpgart module...
    Compiling DRM module...

    ERROR: Kernel modules did not compile

    The DRI drivers can not be installed without the latest kernel
    modules.
    Installation will be aborted. See the dri.log file for information on
    what went wrong."

    >From dri.log:

    "make -f Makefile.linux DRM_MODULES=gdg.ko modules
    make[1]: Entering directory `/root/Desktop/graphics/dripkg/drm'
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.22.9- 61.fc6/build SUBDIRS=`pwd`
    DRMSRCDIR=`pwd` modules
    make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.22.9-61.fc6-i686'
    rm: cannot remove `/root/Desktop/graphics/dripkg/drm/.tmp_versions/
    CVS': Is a directory
    make[2]: *** [crmodverdir] Error 1
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.22.9-61.fc6-i686'
    make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/Desktop/graphics/dripkg/drm'
    make: *** [ gdg.ko] Error 2"

    There's gotta be a better way.
    Thoughts/suggestions/experience?

    Thanks,

    Try this:

    Download the correct rpm:
    http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/915resolution/

    run "rpm -i "
    restart X
    run "system-config-display"
