Intel GMA 915, really old hardware!

(1/1)

Hi!
Pretty sure this hardware is 32 bits only since every info points to this and the computer is limited to 2GB  :58: They asked me to try and with some work, i was able to install Windows 10 32bits but only version 1507 (i.e. the 1st Windows 10).But... video and infrared cannot be configured since no drivers were ever made. (WinXP / Vista 32bits only).
Linux Lite 3.8 would be the last 32bits version to install, but even then, would the Intel GMA 915 work with a real driver or just the default?
I briefly looked but maybe there is a website listing hardware by last supported kernel?

@TheDead
If it did..... why would you? LL3.x is no longer supported nor is its base. If you were wanting to do so for the sake doing/learning maybe... But drivers in general are lacking even winders.... per https://www.tenforums.com/drivers-hardware/120316-win10-drivers-intel-915gm.html    gave a look for kicks....

If able a video card swap -- but then limited by everything else... and 0 patches (my plugged)...

If you were wanting to know out of curiosity... Perhaps a LiveUSB could tell you if 3.x or 2.x would give you any results, but even if so - there isn't any support....

Hate to the bearer of bad news....

Jerry:
Surely not another thread looking for 3.x support?

@Jerry 323232 more threads like this for 32bit and maybe a LL 5.32 special 32 bit edition.. ??

TheDead:
Don't know why I didn't even think to try a live boot... too much Mac/Win lately I guess. ;)

Nooo, not looking for 3.x support. I wouldn't install WinVista on there so wuz juzt askingz.

But still a website with listings of supported hardware by kernel version would be nice :D

DOS 16bits for the winz!
