You might want to run xorgconfig to configure X, else post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf here.

Also, please use better thread titles in future, i.e. ones that describe the problem you're having.

What exactly did you have problems with when you tried xorgconfig? It's a bit hard to help if you don't post full details (i.e. what you did, exact error messages, etc). Again, please post your xorg.conf.

Intel drivers are in Xorg and this one is covered, so that can't be the problem. If you use your favourite searchengine for "Intel GMA X3100" you'll find the Intel HOWTO. Not that you need to compile anything, but maybe use it as a checklist, because you'll need for instance the kernels AGP module loaded and Xorg needs DRM and DRI for this one, IIGC...

I don't really see a problem with that xorg.conf, so I'm not sure what the problem could be. What happened when you ran xorgconfig?

Shouldn't he use the Intel, i810 or i915 driver instead of the VESA one? And shouldn't there be a DRI section?

OK. I think at this stage it would be best to check http://www.intellinuxgraphics.org/install.html. You should check:
- the agpgart, drm, i915 and intel-agp kernel modules are loaded: 'egrep "(agp|gart|drm|i915|intel)" /proc/modules',
- the mesa and drm packages are installed: 'egrep "(drm|mesa)" /var/log/rpmpkgs' or 'rpm -qa | egrep "(drm|mesa)"',
- the Xorg driver package xorg-x11-drv-i810 is installed before continuing.

Then in your Xorg.conf, in the "Driver" section change the driver from "vesa" to "intel".
In your current config DRI and GLX are loaded so then you add these lines to your config:
Code:
Section "DRI"
    Mode 0666
EndSection
Then drop to runlevel 3 if you're not there already: 'telinit 3', then try running X using the 'startx' command. Next check your xorg log in case of errors. Often you can grep for errors with: 'egrep "(EE|WW)" /var/log/Xorg.0.log'.
