I've tried to install Archlinux with the mainboard Gigabyte GA-EG45M-UD2H. It has a Intel G45 chipset and Intel GMA 4500HD graphics onboard. The only working driver is Vesa. With Intel driver gdm won't start.
if this is with server 1.6.4, see bug 24200.

Would you be able to start X in gdb to get the backtrace? This looks like an issue on 64-bit system?
I've tried several distros(ubuntu,debian,fedora,archlinux) 32-bit and 64-bit and none could use the intel-driver, only vesa. i'm working on a gdb backtrace.
Sorry to have you bothered, the beta of Ubuntu 9.10 works, so I guess it's no bug.
