How to get intel 82845 graphic drivers for ubuntu?
I was not sure I had right graphic driver installed as the graphic quality was not as good as that in windows. This is a screenshot of my desktop under windows.
And this one is how it looks under Ubuntu
So I downloaded some installation packages from intel. One was a .rpm file the other was .tar.gz file. I installed the .rpm file using alien but could see no changes, the graphic quality remained the same. Then I tried compiling the .tar.gz file. I extracted it and then ran the ./configure command. Error- No such file or directory. When I ran the make command, error- No target specified and no makefile found. Then I simply ran the sudo ./install.sh command. Error- the dri drivers cannot be installed without the lates kernel modules.
I really want the graphics in Ubuntu to look as good as that. I am not even sure whether Ubuntu already has the required drivers but if it does why are the graphics so rusty, and if not why am I unable to install the drivers provided by intel? Please help. This is the link from where I downloaded the drivers. Here.
