    Question make debian with xfce use intel graphics driver

    I have a "Intel N10 Integrated Graphics Controller", which I believe uses an i8* or i9* chipset. I run Xfce and have no Xorg.conf file, supposedly it should detect my driver at startup? I think it falls back on the vesa driver, and it seems horrbily slow. Is there a way to force it to use a specific driver? My /var/log/Xorg.0.log looks like this:

    (II) intel: Driver for Intel Integrated Graphics Chipsets: i810,
    	i810-dc100, i810e, i815, i830M, 845G, 854, 852GM/855GM, 865G, 915G,
    	E7221 (i915), 915GM, 945G, 945GM, 945GME, Pineview GM, Pineview G,

    Myabe I was to fast, I dont know exactly what line in the log says what driver was loaded but i finally get

    intel(0): [DR12] Setup Complete..

    Then a lot of other intel(0) lines, so I guess it actually succeeded in using the Intel driver? Is there any other reason why it seems extremely slow, its a 1.5 Ghz dualcore that displays nothing fancy at all. Any ideas why?
