What platform/distro are you using?  If it's centos 5, how painful was
it getting the pre-requisites for building the latest driver.  I was
under the impression that the latest intel driver would require a newer
X server release than is included in centos 5 (7.1.1).

I'd be happy to build & package the latest driver so long as I don't
have to rebuild the whole of X etc. to get there :-)

Thanks for your xorg.conf in any case.
