Linux on Evo D310

Does anybody know if HP supports
Linux on the new Evo D310 PCs?
I wonder if the Intel i845G
graphics is already supported by XFree under (any kind of) Linux.

Re: Linux on Evo D310

Hi Markus,

afaik the official kernels doesn't support the i845G.
But there are drivers for linux, e.g. have a look at
http://www.mmbi.com/download/Linux845G.htm
Or you can try to install a kernel-patch from
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/gregkh/misc/agpgart-2.5.27.patch with supports this chipset.

good luck
Dirk
