Re: Intel 82845 Video?

I'm trying to configure X on a Debian-3.0 "Stable" system.  I just got
a new IBM workstation which has an "Intel 82845" video card.  Anyone
have any ideas what the driver name and Vendor name for this booger
would be?

I have a system (running debian unstable now, but I think I got it working with debian stable too) with such a built-in card:

$ lspci -v
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corp. 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03) (prog-if 00 [VGA])

I got it running using the "i180" driver (I cheated by booting the system with Knoppix and copying some parts of the Knoppix-generated XF86Config-4 to my system). In my XF86Config-4:

Section "Device"
        ### Available Driver options are:-
# sw_cursor is needed for some ati and radeon cards
        #Option     "sw_cursor"
        #Option     "hw_cursor"
        #Option     "NoAccel"
        #Option     "ShowCache"
        #Option     "ShadowFB"
        #Option     "UseFBDev"
        #Option     "Rotate"
        Identifier  "Card0"
# The following line is auto-generated by KNOPPIX mkxf86config
        Driver      "i810"
        VendorName  "All"
        BoardName   "All"
