Intel Graphic Controller driver

Postby nomko on Mon Dec 03, 2012 6:20 am

Hi everyone,

On my "old" desktop system i want to replace Lubuntu with Mint 13 + MATE. This is very much possible considering the spec's of the deskop system:

Intel P4 - 3.0 GHz
2.0 GB RAM
Intel 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics Controller
Intel N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller
Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5752 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (ethernet controller)
1x HDD WDC WD800 JD-60LS
1x HDD Samsung HD154UI

But my main question is: is there a Linux driver available for the 82945G/GZ Graphic Controller? The only location i can find is here: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_ ... ss+chipset. But is there an PPA available? Anyone here with the same Intel Grpahic Controller who can provide me with some solutions? Many thanks in advance!

the current driver not enough :?:
I think you didn't need installing any driver for intel 945G
Intel driver usually use Mesa DRI for GLX Renderer.

But if you are curious you can see :
ppa:glasen/intel-driver
ppa:oibaf/graphics-drivers

Bleeding edge PPA (not recommended) :
ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
