I finally got my local X server to work, but changing the Driver vesa
was not enough. Here's the xorg.conf file I used to get a display...
I had to put the monitor H sync and V refresh rates in the file for this
to work. I did this because I saw 36-0 values in the log and thought it
was strange. Is this worthy of a bug report?
So I guess the initial problem was, the new xorg nouveau NVIDIA driver
doesn't work with my nVidia Corporation NV44 [GeForce 6200 LE]. Should
I file a bug report with Fedora or xorg?
