View Full Version : Intel 82865G (i810) Video VERY Sluggish in Fedora 10

1st January 2009, 06:07 PM
Hello All,

I'm hoping you can help me out. I'm trying to get my computer to behave properly in the video realm. The whole system just seems to be incredibly slow and sluggish. I'm suspecting the video card installation. I have had this issue before with Fedora 8 and I was able to get it to work better by editing the xorg.conf file to use "EXA" instead of "XAA" (or visa versa, I can't remember). But now that there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to edit, what should I do?

Here is some information that I think could be useful.

Output of "lspci":

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

Also, most of the time, there are strange lines that appear on the monitor. Check out the screenshot below:


Thanks for any help in advance,

Hello Derek:

There's a thread by sideways that lists common F10 issues, and "How to generate a xorg.conf file" is one of them. It's no longer generated by default. See the "General Support" section.

Also, there's several other threads on Intel in F10, one just currently discussing XAA vs. EXA.


OOPS! It's in "General Support": http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showpost.php?p=1120206&postcount=2
