F13 Intel Arrendale graphics controller

This is an up date from August 2010.

I find it hard to believe that I am the one who is having this issue, and that there isn't a solution to this problem.

I am not a nob when it comes to Linux and Fedora, but I don't have a solution even with Fedora 14.

Isn't there anyone who is willing to help?

When I first installed Fedora on this Gateway NV79 it installed the i915 intel driver, but defaults to vesa driver. I have looked at as many solutions that I can find but does not work with my set up.

Here are some things that I do now. The i915 modules are loading:

lsmod | grep i915
i915 272455 0
drm_kms_helper 23936 1 i915
drm 169089 2 i915,drm_kms_helper
i2c_algo_bit 4781 1 i915
i2c_core 24507 6 videodev,i2c_i801,i915,drm_kms_helper,drm,i2c_algo _bit
video 20741 1 i915

Please look comparison of other distro below.

Copy of xorg.conf This works.

The only other thing that may be this issue would be KMS. Here is my start up with nomodeset.

# initrd /initrd-[generic-]version.img

root (hd0,0)
kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_oldgeekvet-lv_root nomodeset LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us rhgb quiet
initrd /initramfs-

After all that my question is: What am I missing? I have been trying about everything that I can find to correct this problem.

Different distro where video works 3D, not quite sure about the sound, but including modules loaded.

The biggest difference between these modules is that intel_agp is loaded on this other distro and not on the Fedora 13 x86_64.

Is this supposed to be this way or an oversight?
