HP 5495 Linux install -- no video card driver

I installed Redhat 7.2 on my HP 5495 laptop but cant configure the X window system because it does not have the driver for the Intel 830M video card on the 5495. The rest of the installation was fine, Linux worked in text mode but no graphics. Has anyone figured out how to configure the Intel 830M for Linux?

Hello,

Upgrade your X11 server code to XFree86-4.2.0 that supports Intel 830 chipset.

Good luck.
