    Sorry for this newbie question...

    I'm very new to Linux and can't install i855crt. After unpacking I browse to the directory and type "make" but it just says "make: »i855crt« ist bereits aktualisiert." (="make: i855crt has already been updated").
    When I try to run the driver by typing "sudo i855crt on 1400x1050@75" the message "sudo: i855crt: command not found".
    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for you help,
    jimer.

      Okay, I'm a bit further by now. In the tar.gz archive there is already a compiled i855crt.
      But I need to recompile because of the i915 patch. When I do so it says "david@david-laptop:~/i855crt-0.4$ make
      gcc  -o i855crt i855crt.o vmodes.o -L /usr/X11R6/lib -lXext -lXv
      /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lXext
      collect2: ld gab 1 als Ende-Status zurück
      make: *** [i855crt] Fehler 1

      What's wrong now? Why can't I compile?

      Thanks,
      Jimer

      Well, in the meantime I succeeded in  patching and running the program. But after "sudo ./i855crt on 1600x1200@75" the message
      "Intel 855GM CRT out driver V0.4
      Copyright (C) Merello Andrea 2004

      found mode 1600x1200@75
      No known videocard has been found." comes up.
      What's wrong this time?
