Any one had any luck finding a fix for intel chip sets drivers.I run the 845g chip on P4 2gigs ram.The trouble is with compiz running and playing a video my cpu use is between 80% and 90% and that is all i can do.opening any other program causes the whole system to lag sound goes garbled.In gusty I could play 2 videos muted an album and have 3 web browsers open and the text editor with no trouble.I know we switched from xaa to exa for the driver.the ? is why would you have people use it if it is so bad.Should have left it xaa just like it was in gusty till it was all worked out.I can not change to the modsetting intel driver I get a black screen and error at reboot.This i810 driver was crap for me in gusty also with this same sort of problem.So far I tried the proposed update for the driver did nothing no difference,also tried the debian driver which really slowed things down,
Is there a way to make hardy run in xaa like it did in gusty.tried to edit the xorg.conf file but it seems to make no difference same crappy performance which leads me to belive it's the driver and or xorg.My money is on the driver being fubar.
Can I compile the driver directy from the intel site? .I assume I can but I need a good set of instructions.It will be my first time for some thing like this.
If this is beyond me,can anyone recommend a distro with good intel support.I would go back to gusty but that is going backwards.been thinking of trying pclos 2008.Ran the live cd for a few weeks seems very stable,but so was gusty in live cd worked fine then you install it and have all sorts of problems.
any help info thanks
Update: installed all proposed updates no help at all.cube rotation is slower and videos still run high cpu rates, to high.
