Drivers for gma950 video? (Integrated i945) + slow video in mplayer
I've just installed successfuly Slackware 11 on my new PC, which has integrated video. The chipset is i945. I have precompiled 2.6.19 kernel with CONFIG_FB_INTEL=y (it was written in the menuconfig help, that this is what I need to get graphics with i945).
So for now X works fine with vesa driver. If I try to run it with i810 driver, I get 800x600 and no higher resolution. It seems there isn't an exactly i945 driver. Is there something better than 'vesa'?
Untill now I was with GeForce2 MX200 on my old PC, and everything there was fine.
glxgears gives me about 600-700 fps.
Another issue is that in mplayer (installed from binary tgz) I can't adjust brightness and contrast (hot buttons 1-4 on kbd). I tried with different video drivers (-vo help) and I managed to change these values only on gl and gl2 drivers, but the video speed there was awfully slow.
Here is the output from xvinfo:

X-Video Extension version 2.2
screen #0
 no adaptors present

This is my first try with integrated video. I will gladly accept any tips and tricks :)

Actually I made it :)
I had to use driver 'i810' and remove any ModeLines from xorg.conf in order to show the right resolution and refresh rates.
It is perfect now. Even got 1024x768 at 85 Hz :) Run at 75 Hz in my old video.
