Yes, it works. I'll use it until I find something better.

When the intel-legacy package was introduced, the newest intel drivers
weren't working for some Intel cards like mine. There were lots of
artifacts that were making X practically unusable. I tried the
xf86-video-intel package but it just freeze the system. I'll try the
i810 driver later.
