Johan: Does bug #153729 adequately describe your problem?
Mike, I have read the thread and recognize the input others gave. Upon FC4
release the bug was still precent. The only way to have FC4 installed was a text
installation and reboot into runlevel 3. The way I managed to have a graphical
screen was installed the latest FC3 x11-xorg files.
Can you please test patch at bug #163331
Your problem should be fixed by upgrading to xorg-x11-6.8.2-44
Can you give it a try?
