The scope of this wiki is to cover in detail the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 graphics processor, including driver installation and troubleshooting.
==Driver Installation==
===Open Source Intel Driver===
Install the driver:
# pacman -S xf86-video-intel
Use '''''gtf''''' to generate the Xorg ''Modeline'' values and then edit ''/etc/X11/xorg.conf'' and add these values to the ''Monitor'' section, for example:
Section "Monitor"
  Identifier "Monitor0"
  VendorName "unknown"
  '''Modeline "800x600" 40.12 800 848 968 1056 600 601 605 628 #60Hz'''
Lastly, add the following to the "Device" section, replacing the existing ''Driver'' value if present:
VideoRam      229376
Option "CacheLines" "1980"
Driver      "intel"
Few additions that will speed up your card performance big time:
Add this to the driver's section in xorg.conf:
Option "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
And add this to /etc/profile:
export INTEL_BATCH=1
'''Note:''' Setting the MigrationHeuristic option to greedy will cause system tray icon corruption in KDE 4.1, as noted here
