Ok, silly me.
I tried it within my fedora 6. I should have installed
xorg-x11-server-sdk before.
Now it builds and installs. I also had to install libdrm 2.2.

Now xvinfo says I've got one adaptor, which is named "Intel textured..."

But it is much slow. It has artifacts when I move the player window.
And when I rotate the cube (compiz) the video remains where it was.

Is it the state of the art of the driver?

I will soon try and redo the installation in a cleaner system. Fedora 6 comes
with a 2.6.18 kernel, I had to install a new kernel, and maybe I forgot

Thanks for now.
