Correct X.log

And let's try that again while I'm not being stupid, attached X.log file from a
system where I didn't pass that parameter in question.. doh.

Almost certainly a radeon bug.
Comment 4 Will Woods 2007-05-22 09:53:18 EDT
This isn't a regression from FC6, and we have a workaround, so I'm moving this
off the blocker list. We may need a release note / CommonBugs entry about this
for F7, though.
Comment 5 David Nielsen 2007-06-26 08:57:35 EDT
Since this has persisted since FC6 I'm setting this to block F8
Comment 6 Adam Jackson 2007-08-27 14:00:09 EDT
Would be good to get a test of this with f8t2 or so.  There's a new radeon
driver that has a good chance of either making this work, or breaking it completely.
Comment 7 David Nielsen 2007-09-16 12:03:05 EDT
I tested with F8 test 2 and is anaconda no longer garbled, closing.
