I need to install a compatible video driver on a Fedora machine. The resolution proportion isn't very well and I can't change the brightness and contrast (xbacklight and xgamma) either.

Please answer me with a complete solution or a final successfully tutorial.

Some information about the system is:

$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
$ cat /etc/issue
Fedora release 17 (Beefy Miracle)
Kernel \r on an \m (\l)

intel video drivers are included in the kernel and should work out of the box. Sometimes you have to switch to a newer kernel to get old intel mobil chipsets to work.

what is you Chipset? is this an laptop?

did you already tried upgrading to the latest kernel in fedira?
