So, first, zigmos will need to do the "modprobe i915 modeset=1" before he does startx.
Second, I noticed misconfiguration in the xorg.conf file posted by zigmos. I'll quote here the relevant section, with the mistake marked with red:
Please replace Driver "fbdev" with Driver "intel". Again, do this before you issue startx, obviously.
### Available Driver options are:-
### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
### [arg]: arg optional
#Option "ShadowFB" # [<bool>]
#Option "Rotate" # <str>
#Option "fbdev" # <str>
#Option "debug" # [<bool>]
VendorName "Intel Corporation"
BoardName "3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller"
And third, make sure you have Xorg Intel drivers installed from the ppa ( add-apt-repository ppa:glasen/intel-driver; apt-get update; apt-get upgrade).
Now, you can issue startx !
NOTE: You can check your Xorg Intel drivers version like this, copy/paste from my laptop follows:
So, make sure that installed version is "2:2.15.0~lucid~ppa9".
# apt-cache policy xserver-xorg-video-intel
*** 2:2.15.0~lucid~ppa9 0
