Description of problem: FC2 installation on Dell Inspiron 2500 
notebook having Intel 815 video chip set. X-Windows does not work 
(blinking, out of sync) when FC2 finally installed. It works during

I used Dell Inspiron 2500 notebook without extra video memory. FC2 on 
Inspiron 5100 does not have this problem. FC1 on Inspiron 2500 does 
not have this problem.

Reassigning to correct component 'xorg-x11'.  (We do not ship

The i810 driver in xorg-x11 6.8.1 which is in Fedora Core 3, contains
a bug which prevents correct operation of i810/i815 video hardware.

This problem has been fixed in internal CVS, and will be released
in an update to Fedora Core 3 shortly.  Users experiencing problems
with i810/i815 video in Fedora Core 3 are encouraged to upgrade
their system to Fedora Core 3 and apply this update when it becomes

As a temporary workaround, you should be able to perform a text
mode installation in both FC2 and FC3 in order to install the OS.
After that, you can use the "vesa" driver until our update is
released for FC3.
