This guide shows you how to install the official device driver for Intels 82865G video adapter

Required Files

Getting started

(Optional - i reinstalled linux from a fresh install format and all i was messing around with so many filles trying to get the 82865G to work i wanted a fresh system with all the origianl settings. since you probably cant get into the X System you probably dont have much on your system anyways so why not.)

Installing XFree86

1. login as root

2. Untar XFree86 source files

$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-1.tgz
$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-2.tgz
$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-3.tgz
$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-4.tgz
$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-5.tgz
$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-6.tgz
$ tar -xvf XFree86-#.#.#-src-7.tgz

3. Build XFree86

$ cd xc
$ make World

4. Install XFree86

make install
make install.man

You are now finished installing the XFree86 System now it is time to install the 82865G driver you downloaded earlier
