LXer: I finally solve my Intel video issues with the newer Xorg

Published at LXer:

This fix, courtesy of the fine users of Arch Linux, solved my Xorg problems and cleared the way for me to upgrade from Ubuntu 8.04 LTS to Ubuntu 9.04 and to the next version of Debian, to Slackware 13.0 ... and just about everything else Unix-like out there on my 2002-era Toshiba 1100-S101 laptop.
