All I can tell you is that I untared
i915-20060403-linux.i386.tar.bz2 and ran the install script in it.
It found the correct directory, and updated the files. As far as RPM
is concerned, the /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/i810_drv.so file is
owned by xorg-x11-drv-i810-1.4.1.3-3.1 and the
/usr/lib/dri/i810_dri.so is owned by mesa-libGL-6.4.2-6. i810_drv.so
was updated by the install script, and the i915_drv.so was added.

Now, when xorg-x11-drv-i810 gets updated, it will overwrite my
updated file. But I am hoping that the updated driver will included
in that release. If not, I'll have to replace it again. (I really
should build an RPM with the updates...)

Thanks for the explanation, I did not realize the snapshots had scripts. I moved the files in the appropriate directories and set file permissions according to the replaced driver values when X was still monolithic.

Using scripts sounds a bit easier.
