Well, I looked into this once and found the file
http://xorg.freedesktop.org/archive/individual/driver/xf86-video-i810-1.5.0.0.tar.bz2
from 26-Jan-2006 09:42  383K (e.g. round about one month after Xorg 7.0
was released and four before 7.1 was published).

It has support for 945GM, it compiles without problems on FC5 but I
unfortunately don't have hardware at hand to test if it really works.

I couldn't find anything in the docs if this driver is for 7.0 or 7.1
:-/ Can somebody give me a hint where to look for such a information?
