Funny.  Neverputt works perfectly for me on an Intel GM965 chipset.
Frankly, I'm quite glad that we're finally past the horror that was the
Fedora 10 Intel graphics driver.  Yes, it was a nasty six months, but
since installing Fedora 11, I haven't had a single graphics-related bug.

FWIW, I believe that Ubuntu 9.04 is now going through what we went
through with Fedora 10, so I probably wouldn't switch to Ubuntu if I was
frustrated with the new Intel graphics driver (or I'd switch to 8.10 or
8.04).
