$ zgrep DRM_I915_KMS /proc/config.gz
# CONFIG_DRM_I915_KMS is not set
So UXA is not available, mainly because the intel driver 2.8
documentation says that various KMS-related problems will be fixed only
in the not-yet-released kernel 2.6.31, while we ship Frugalware 1.1 with
the released 2.6.30.
Regarding EXA, are you sure you aren't using it? I have the following
line in my Xorg log:
(==) intel(0): Using EXA for acceleration
