You see, I don't use Fedora anymore so it's a little hard for me to help you. Basically you have to do 2 things. Check if you have all necesssary dependencies, which you should have, because Intel drivers for Linux are open source drivers (Fedora by default doesn't have proprietary drivers) and check if your xorg.conf is properly configured and Intel module/driver is loaded.

Post the output of xorg.conf and check X log files for errors. Try to run;
Code:
X -configure
or
Code:
Xorg -configure
As they say;
Quote:
The Xserver is capable of creating its own configuration file. As root just run: X -configure. The Xserver will then load each driver module, probe for the driver and create a configuration file. The configuration file will be stored in the home directory of the user who started the Xserver (usually /root). It's called xorg.conf.new so another config file that may exist in this directory will be overwritten.
Check if libdrm is installed, it should be version 2.4.0. I guess that newest versions should work too with the version of the driver that you have. You need DRM and AGPGART kernel modules.

./autogen is used for building the driver and if you have it installed with all dependencies you don't need to use it.

Here's the official announcement for xf86-video-intel 2.5.0

I guess that you could visit http://www.x.org/wiki/Home and join Intel Software Network where you can ask questions about your problem.

Thanks,

That Fedora does NOT ship with Intel drivers seems weird, but - in retrospect - does explain my "problems".

I seem to have everything installed...so, off to the batcave...

Where everything m...ooooooo.v...eeesss like mud... :-)

Well, here's what I did,
- set the inittab to start up in mode 3,
- did Xorg -configure, got a xorg.conf.new, as promised
- replaced (after backing up the old ove) the old one with the new one and renamed it
- entered startx and got a grey screen...

No mouse either. Not even the intro jungle.

I may have to tune&tweak this thing...

One of the pages (the one around free BSD) said something about agpgart, but I dont quite understand. I have something like that on-disk, but it is 0 bytes big/small, besides that I have dripkg on-disk, but everything seems to need a compile, what do I do with that, now?
