This isn't mean to stir stuff up, believe me.
I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 1010 - Poulsbo chipset.
Latest ubuntu renders the correct video resolution very slowly. Which is alright. But, I'm missing the EMGD. Since that driver gets a good scolding in the GMA500 thread, I decided I'd take a trip into the past.
I realize this machine has problem hardware and doing this I'm largely on my own, but I need a second set of eyes.
Debian Squeeze gets me into a VGA ratio display.
I wanted to install EMGD 1.16, but cannot.
The package from Intel's site Linux Tarball version 1.16 does not include an install.sh file. Converting the Fedora 14 rpms with Alien to deb lets things install, but nothing change.
So, I checked their archives.
A Debian Wiki page says that things work with version 1.5.2.
That version is not on Intel's archive.
What I did manage to download was version 1.14 and version 1.10.
1.10 has a group of PDF files and an EXE file containing some odd files in Squeeze. So, I skipped it.
Version 1.14 of the EMGD package has an install.sh. Paydirt.
I had to enable Squeeze backports and pull XServer 1.10 (A version ahead of the 1.09 the driver asks for and two versions ahead of the 1.08 shipped in Squeeze) and kernel 2.6.30-5 something. My memory is fuzzy and I'm away from the machine for now.
After making the debian wiki changes to the install.sh file and running "./install.sh -v" I can get most of the way through the 1.14 installation before it errors out complaining about linux/vga_switcheroo.h.
That was as far as I got before pulling something stupid and installing the IMGD ubuntu packages where I broke apt because I was in a hurry.
It's not a giant deal. I'm starting from scratch again tomorrow and can get it that far back up to snuff. I just don't know where to go about vga_switcheroo.
Any ideas on the puzzle? Or an archive of the Intel 1.5.2 driver?
