I've just installed OpenBSD 5.2 on my desktop computer and I can't get the X Window System to work. My graphics card is Intel GMA X4500. When I run startx, my system freezes and no keyboard interaction is possible. So I perform a hard reset. Moreover, X -configure gives me segmentation faults and the X configuration is aborted. Has anyone managed to get Intel GMA X4500 and X working perfectly?

Give a try to -current or wait the next release (May 1). Probably your issue is fixed, the support for Intel graphics cards have been greatly enhanced in -current.
