On several machines, I met that Slax was unable to run Xserver because he 
lacked the Intel driver. After installing the package manually, Xserver 
was functional on these machines. That's why I added the package.

If someone will notice that the presence of the package is causing 
problems, please do not hesitate to provide feedback.

Note: Yes, number in subject was wrong. It should be 9.5.
