Linux® framebuffer driver for Intel® 830M/845G/852GM/855GM/865G integrated graphics chipsets

David Dawes dawes@XFree86.Org

I wrote a Linux framebuffer driver for Intel integrated graphics chipsets (830M - 865G). The driver was primarily targeted for the 865G, but it also works, though in some cases with reduced functionality or limitations, on all chipsets back to the 830M.

The latest source and patches relative to older versions can be found here, and the current version is 0.7.7. If you try the driver, please let me know it goes. I am interested in success reports as well as feedback about problems.

This driver is included with the Linux 2.4.21 and later 2.4.x kernels. The source for these kernels can be found at


Version 0.7.5 (6 February 2003)

Version 0.7.6 (29 April 2003)

Version 0.7.7 (27 June 2003)
