I'm running 7.2-RELEASE i386 on a Dell Inspiron 1525. This laptop has an Intel GM965 Mobile graphics card, and while X performance is acceptable, it feels slow compared to Windows XP installed on another partition on the same machine.

Does anyone has this same computer? What can I do to improve the performance of X?.

These are the relevant parts of my xorg.conf:

Section "Module"
    Load  "dbe"
    Load  "dri"
    Load  "dri2"
    Load  "extmod"
    Load  "glx"
    Load  "record"
    Load  "freetype"

Section "Device"
        ### Available Driver options are:-
        ### Values: <i>: integer, <f>: float, <bool>: "True"/"False",
        ### <string>: "String", <freq>: "<f> Hz/kHz/MHz"
        ### [arg]: arg optional
    Option      "DRI"  "true"                    # [<bool>]

    Option        "UseFBDev" "true"
