Smile How to load updated Intel Integrated graphics kernel module at boot in Fedora 14?

I am having difficulty with kernel module i915 (The VGA controller for Intel's 2nd Generation Integrated Graphics). I am running kernel 3.2.5-3.f14.x86_64.

The notebook is a HP Pro Book 5330m.

Edit. I recompiled each xorg package and their dependencies from http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/sourcef.../STABLE/SRPMS/

Note, if you don't update each installed xorg package the mouse freezes after boot.

I then created a live Fedora 14 live CD with livecd-tools with the default kickstarts adding the updated packages.

Required packages in one of the kickstart files (all four are required in the home directory):

fedora-live-base
fedora-livecd-desktop.ks
fedora-live-desktop.ks
fedora-live-minimization.ks:

firefox
kernel-devel
kernel-headers
iwl6000g2a-firmware
libdrm.i686
libdrm.devel
ntp

Code:
livecd-creator --config=/home/jonathon/fedora-livecd-desktop.ks \ --fslabel=JP-Fedora-14-x64-live --cache=/home/jonathon/cache --tmpdir=/home/jonathon/tmp

After the installation which went fine, I had to enter run level (init 3) due to an error with gdm. I group removed 'GNOME Desktop Environment' and then installed it again. I also group installed 'X Window System', 'Hardware Support', 'Input Methods' to add back any missing packages that had been previously removed.

Fedora 14 is now working well on my new notebook. Thanks to Andrew from fubuntu http://www.fuduntu.org/ for his hard work and keeping Fedora 14 alive for people like myself.
