Actually it doesn't. i915 is very old and has been supported for years. It's
just that the driver for all the chipsets 915 and newer is called "i915".
The recommended way to get the latest Intel driver is to upgrade to Fedora
13 Beta. Upgrading a driver alone is not easy due to dependencies on the
kernel, as you have seen, and other components (at least: libdrm, mesa).
