Is there a better intel driver than "dbe".
My Integrated Intel graphics doesn't seem to be working at its full capacity.

I ran lspci and to look at what model it was and this is the model it returned "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 04)". I looked in the xorg config file and I saw it importing this module "dbe" and using this module. I am wondering if this is a sufficient driver.

dbe is not the intel driver. It stands for double buffer extension.

The driver for intel cards is the xf86-video-intel. It will probably show up as the i915 module in lsmod, for example


$ lsmod | grep i915
i915                  321187  3
drm_kms_helper        25963  1 i915
drm                  175314  3 i915,drm_kms_helper
i2c_algo_bit            4911  1 i915
video                  19305  1 i915
intel_agp              29459  2 i915
button                  4834  1 i915
i2c_core              18726  6 videodev,i915,drm_kms_helper,drm,i2c_algo_bit,i2c_i801

And no, there's no better driver.
