i usually dislike these types of mails, however i haven't found the
answer on my own yet. if it's out there and i missed it, kindly push
me in the right direction...
i'm considering the new ibm thinkpad x41, and the one thing i'm
concerned about is the pci-express graphics card (Intel Graphics
Media Accelerator 900) - i think the i915 chipset. the x40's have
an agp interface which i know works, but the x41 is pci-x - can the
pci bus interface deal with a pci-x graphics card? i'm sure adding
the devices id's will be the first step in getting x11 up, but
that's ok. though, i not sure if the x.org 6.8.2 i810 driver will
work, but i've yet to complete that research. i see there is an
i915 one too, looks to be based on the 830.
i know they are new, but anyone have experience with an x41? might
just have to go with the x40, even though they are basically the
thanks for any help/suggestions....
