Intel Linux Graphics Driver Installation for customised kernel????


I have installed new kernel(2.6.30-custom1) on fedora 11( 2.6.30.10-105.2.23.fc11.i686.PAE). It was successful. But, when I tried boot from new kernel it hangs (only fedora logo..).

I am using T500.. and my card info is

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Lenovo Device 2115
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 30
Memory at fc000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
I/O ports at 1800 [size=8]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: i915
Kernel modules: i915

Can someone suggest a way to figure out which version is of driver is needed and how to install driver in customised kernel..??

and you absolutely must use fedora 11 ??
It is about to hit it's End Of Life in about 28 days
after 28 days there will be no farther support and no security updates .

have you read through the fedora forum guides section ?
http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forumdisplay.php?f=12

also i take it you have blacklisted the kernel in yum so pup will not auto install a new kernel ?

the PAE ?
so this is a laptop with 4 gig or more of ram and a 32 bit os on it ??

for the intel built in 3d chips all the drivers are in the kernel

this fedora thread might help ( fedora 12 and not 11 )
