Where can I find the Intel Embedded Graphic Driver?

Intel provides a driver package for Linux.
You can download it here:

Maybe this pages are helpful:
Unfortunately it is a RPM Package.
Eventually You can convert it with Alien.
KPackage can open and install RPM's.

Unfortunately KPackage finds missing dependencies.
rpm -U --replacepkgs --test '///home/username/Path/IEGD-8.0-1.i386.rpm';echo RESULT=$?
error: Failed dependencies:
/bin/sh is needed by IEGD-8.0-1.i386
XFree86 is needed by IEGD-8.0-1.i386

Sounds like this driver is made for XFree
Ubuntu uses X0rg.
For that I guess, one has to install XFree and remove X0rg before.
I treat that not to be recommended.

Does the standard VESA driver work?

Where did you get this board?

I could be interested in having one, too (If sold at an affordable price...)

Hey davidking, take a look at this blog post with the very descriptive title "Intel GMA 500 (Poulsbo) graphics on Linux: a precise and comprehensive summary as to why you’re screwed":


It seems that the graphics driver will only work with a binary driver on Ubuntu 8.04 with a kernel version not newer than 2.6.24.
