X choppy performance / no 3D / Intel notebook graphics

I just wiped my hp 6730b laptop after having done something .. bad (dont ask =p).. that killed my previous fedora 14 install but now the graphics are all choppy.

The previous install was a 12 to 14 upgrade that ran fine after only minor tinkering to straighten out some leftover stuff. The new one is a net-install of the 64bit version.

But now X is all choppy and 2 processes seem to be using some cpu when X starts up: 'kondemand' and 'migration'

Eventually the screen will start to flicker but it'll keep running 'normally'.

I am guessing that it is somehow related to the intel driver seeing how 3d (compiz) is not working either but i am running out of ideas on how to fix it.

So far all I changed is the default runlevel to 3 but it makes no difference if its in 5. I tried making a new config with X -config but then X does not start at all. system-config-display has been removed so i cant try fiddling with that either.

Anyone have any pointers / ideas on where to look ?


Hopefully all the required / useful info:
(there is no xorg.conf)

Its gnome actually, and desktop effects wont enable so its disabled.

I had it working by installing an intel driver compiled from source but after a reboot it stopped working.

Re: X choppy performance / no 3D / Intel notebook graphics

Little update .. when GDM loads its already slow, when gnome starts its still slow, if i load up to KDE from GDM everything is fine once KDE is started.
I'm getting the occasional app crash so *something* isn't right.

32 bit install has the same problem... maybe this thread should be moved.
