I have the Intel 82845G video card and trying to get X11 working with it. It routinely crashes with artifacts. I know the existing history with this driver and X11 and I am about to buy a replacement video card but decided I will check here first to see if anyone has had any success with it.
I tried it with Linux Mint XFCE, and Crunchbang openbox. I made sure the BIOS onboard video memory is at max, and different options in
xorg.conf like disabling DRI.
Eventually I want to use awesome wm. Will changing the wm have any effect on video crashing, or is this solely a problem between Intel's driver and X11 ?
