Default OpenBSD and Intel GMA X4500

Hello! I installed OpenBSD/amd64 5.2 on my desktop computer two weeks ago and I couldn't get the X Window System to work. My graphics card is Intel GMA X4500 (G41 chipset). I ran "startx" and then my system hung. I got a black screen and X didn't respond to keyboard or mouse input. The only way to recover from that was to reboot my machine. Moreover, "X -configure" gave me segmentation faults and the X configuration was aborted. Is there support for my graphics card in OpenBSD 5.3? Has anyone managed to get Intel GMA X4500 and X to work perfectly?

This may sound very obvious, but have you tried upgrading to 5.3?

No, I haven't tried it yet, because I removed OpenBSD from my HDD after that and installed again Arch Linux so as to do my job (mainly Haskell and python). If there's a way to test 5.3 (+ X Window System) without installing it on HDD, please let me know.

Unrelated to your video card issue, you may want to see where this thread goes if you need ghc: http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-ports&m=136796351325773&w=2

USB attached mass storage devices appear as sd(4) devices so that you may install directly to USB stick.

There is also LiveCD, named Fuguita. I didn't try it by myself.
