Intel drivers for the older chips are currently broken and in most cases
unusable. Phoronix wrote about it several times. The newer 9x chips seem to
work again with Linux 2.6.30+ and the latest 2.9 Intel drivers.

I've downgraded all my (Debian) systems with Intel 8x chips to an older
Xorg version and the  2.3.2-2+lenny6 intel driver from Lenny. Currently that
still works but someday it will break for sure.

So all in all I doubt this is somehow relevant for LyX it's more of a general
