Finally a driver that does not crash for 82845G/GL

Finally found a solution for a dinosaur machine Dell GX260 graphics driver issues. My lspci shows this:

VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 01) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

As a plus, I found that compiz works. Hopefully wayland will work as well once released.

Where to get it from?¬†install the drivers from this PPA:¬†https://launchpad.net/~glasen/+archive/intel-driver¬†. I’m running ubuntu 12.10 so that’s what my tests are based on.
