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,
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?
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

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