I do have the old integrated Intel card. X11 defaults to VESA without the 01org installation. However, this can be worked around in my case. Perhaps this helps you to force the right driver (since they are already on the system unless you did a minimal install):

Removing VESA driver:

yum remove xorg-x11-drv-vesa

After X11 restart, it then defaults to the fbdev driver, so we remove that too:

# yum remove xorg-x11-drv-fbdev

After X11 restart, it "defaults" to the correct driver. you would see the following line in the X11 log:

# grep Loading /var/log/Xorg.0.log
