All that is required to update your X drivers is to change the Driver line in the Device section.

So, where you currently have:

Quote:
Section "Device"
Identifier "VESA Framebuffer"
Driver "vesa" # <--- watch this line change
EndSection
You want to have:

Quote:
Section "Device"
Identifier "VESA Framebuffer"
Driver "i810" # <--- look! It's changed!
EndSection
The rest of your old xorg.conf file does not need to be touched.
