Here is some information about Intel and their video drivers relevant to
A driver is available for openSUSE. Go to this link and enter "i915"
(without the quotes), then select "ALL" in the selection box and click
on search. There is a mesa driver from the openSUSE build service.
Don't know if it will work in another distro.
