Patched Intel video drivers for Acer Aspire One

Hi All,

 So I received permission to post the test Intel 945gme drivers, these are really early test, no support, no warrenty.

 ftp://64.146.159.127/pub/intel-945gme intel-945gme-os-drivers.tar.bz2

 The tar has a directory with two folders 32 and 64

 I copied i915, agpgart and agptarget into /kernel/drv,  drm and agpmaster into /kernel/misc

 These are the three lines from my lspci:

  pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x00 function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x27ac
 Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Memory Controller Hub

 pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x02 function 0x00: vendor 0x8086 device 0x27ae
 Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller

 pci bus 0x0000 cardnum 0x02 function 0x01: vendor 0x8086 device 0x27a6
 Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller

 I added these to the /etc/driver_aliases

 i915 "pci8086,27a6"
 agptarget "pci8086,27ac"

or 

update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,27ae"' i915

Updated 10/28/08

update_drv -a -i '"pci8086,27ac"'  agptarget

This is the /etc/X11/xorg.conf that works
