Both Kristian and Mike seemed to resolve this issue quickly (and others
behnd the scene, if any). The explanation of the problem in the bug
report presented was informative to understand what exactly went wrong
and what actions are being taken to make X to not have mysterious
lockups that happen for no known reason and with no easy way to diagnose
what exactly is going wrong. I believe the patch related to pci control
governed by the kernel and not directly addressed by the X server was
where X broke. I guess support for a wider range of Intel chipsets was
part of the upgrade also. Does anyone have later model Intel graphics
that now works?
Also, out of curiousity, those wth Intel 810 or 815, was X broken with
the previous security release? My card worked, I am just trying to
figure out if it was my resolution settings ([email protected]) or if the
810/815 cards were not broken for others either. ([email protected] for example).
This is hard on my nerves, though.
For the person having the Quake tournament, good luck now since X should
be working again.
At least now your friends will be able to see how Fedora, or Linux
distros in general are supposed to work.
