Hi,
Is the latest driver "from intel" suppose to be better or is it just for curiosity/problems to solve?

With xfree intel drivers and the intel drivers built-in in a custom kernel, there should be no need for these drivers. If you don't want to compile the kernel you can try to auto-configure xfree and
Code:
modprobe
the intel drivers in the kernel.
