Please note that RHEL and Fedora Core are completely different operating
systems, and it is not clear what you mean by "Fedora/RHEL3" and
"Fedora/RHEL4", as our products are not named in that manner.
If you are having the problem with Fedora Core, please use the
firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list to discuss the problem with
X.Org developers and other users, who will try to narrow the problem
down and determine if it is expected behaviour, or if it is really
a bug. If the problem is considered a bug by X.Org developers, please
file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla, at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in
the "xorg" component. Once you've filed a bug report in X.Org bugzilla,
paste the URL here and we will track the issue upstream.
If you are using Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you will need to contact
Red Hat support services for official support, either by filing a
web ticket at http://www.redhat.com/support or by telephone at
