I'm completely new to linux. I recently got a laptop to run Eve as i'll be travelling quite abit in the next couple of months. I have laptop with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor (2.1 Ghz), with an Intel GMA 4500MHD chipset.

Now i'd like to update my chipset drivers, however i'll need some assistance with this since i'm quite new to linux and chipsets (don't know if its much different from graphics cards). I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx.

1) How exactly do i update my graphics drivers? I went to the intel site and typed in my chipset but it came up with a list of downloads, not sure which one to pick (if any).

2) Also how do i install the driver? I only seen windows 32 and 64 bit of drivers (from the drivers i use on my graphics cards on my desktop at home).

Truly would appreciate the help.

You can't use EVE on Linux with an Intel Video card because you need the patents infected S3TC texture compression support. It will not be implemented by Intel so you must check the mesa code to add it yourself (or find someone to do it).

You can:
- Use LLVM software rendering (good for skills but nothing else!)
- Beg CCP to add an option to disable textures compresion.
