F14 Problem in installing Intel Graphics Drivers

HI.
I`m new to Fedora .
I installled Intel Graphics Drivers( xf86-video-intel-2.17.0 ) .
I just type :
=================================
tar vxf xf86-video-intel-2.17.0.tar.bz2
cd xf86-video-intel-2.17.0
./configure
=========================

Then problem appeared.
i see the infomations as bellow

"checking for XORG... no
configure: error: Package requirements (xorg-server >= 1.6 xproto fontsproto pixman-1 >= 0.16 ) were not met:

No package 'xorg-server' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XORG_CFLAGS
and XORG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details."

I don`t know what to do ,can anybody help me ?

Re: F14 Problem in installing Intel Graphics Drivers

two things
1) fedora 14 is about to hit End Of Life in a few days
at that point there will NEVER be any support for fedora 14

please install the current version " Fedora 16 "

-- edit --
oops how did i see that as nvidia and not intel ?????
------------------------------------
2) please READ the nvidia guide on this forum
the FULL install instructions are posted

Re: F14 Problem in installing Intel Graphics Drivers

The intel driver is included in your Fedora install. so is there any particular reason you are trying to install it from the intel tarball?

But if it didn't get installed for some reason, install it from the Fedora repo..

Code:
su -
(root password)

yum install xorg-x11-drv-intel

Re: F14 Problem in installing Intel Graphics Drivers

Thx. DBeton.
Actually what i want to do is to update the Intel Graphics Drivers.
I need to use /etc/X11/Xorg.conf to config Xinerama (I have 2 monitors).BUT the Xorg.conf seems not to work,while i can config System->Preferences->Monitor to turn on/off my monitors.
so I doubt maybe the version of my Graphics is too old ,and want to update it.

ps:
Others told me now we just use /etc/X11/Xorg.conf.d/*.conf to config monitor.Does that means /etc/X11/Xorg.conf never works? And how can I config my /etc/X11/Xorg.conf.d/*.conf
