During installation of openSUSE


To start, look in BIOS and ensure video buffer or the like is set to 8MB and
not 1MB. Further response from here depends on openSUSE version. i845G has
been troublesome for years, but the problems and fixes vary just as kernel
drivers and X versions vary.


is a fresh Xorg.0.log, with video portion of lspci -v output prepended, from a Dell tower PC with i845G onboard gfxchip connected via VGA connector to a 1024x768 Dell LCD, and with video configured automagically (no xorg.conf) under openSUSE 12.3/KDE3. The video, though a bit sluggish, works as it should in X and on ttys.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
