=Introduction=
+
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'''
+
EndSection
+
 
+
Lastly, add the following to the "Device" section, replacing the existing ''Driver'' value if present:
+
 
+
VideoRam      229376
+
Option "CacheLines" "1980"
+
Driver      "intel"
+
 
+
===Tips===
+
 
+
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
