I have an old laptop which uses the Intel 845g gfx chipset and could only use XVESA however there is a solution so that you can use Xorg.

I found this information on the site, so thanks to the people who submitted this, I have just collated the information and the required file.

So if your video hardware uses the infamous 'i810' driver module,
located at:

/usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers

You will need to remove the existing symlink first

Drag and drop the file i810_drv.so from the external partition/USB stick to /usr/X11R7/lib/xorg/modules/drivers.

You will be asked to confirm the overwriting of the existing file. Confirm it.

Start the 'Xorg Video Wizard' from the 'Setup' menu.

Select the option to edit the xorg.conf file.

Scroll down to the Section "Device"

Change the line:

Driver "intel" #card0driver

To

Driver "i810" #card0driver

Save the changes

Finally 'Shutdown' and reboot.Be sure to have a Pupsave file or make one or the modifications will be lost.
