[SOLVED] Intel i5-2520M Graphics driver?

Hello.
I've recently installed Arch Linux on my HP ProBook 6360b.
When attempting to launch the X server (twm included), all I saw was a blink of a cursor and then a black screen.
I attempted to install all of the driver packages in the xorg-drivers group.
When using the commands "lspci -v | grep -e Graphics" I got the following output:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

My processor is Intel i5-2520M (4) @ 3.200GHz.
To re-check if there even are drivers for the graphics card, I booted a Gentoo LiveGui image in which the X server or Wayland successfully started.
What actions could I perform to make the X server successfully start?

Post your xorg.log, the command you tried to use to start xorg, and your .xinitrc if applicable.

FWIW that's such an old chip, chances are you need to install mesa-amber as opposed to the standard mesa package to have a working GL driver as legacy non-gallium mesa drivers have been deprecated and moved to their own support branch.

Resolved the problem by installing xterm, mesa-amber and xorg-xinit.
Thanks!
