Sounds like X isn't doing the right thing in this case. X guys - if this is a
bug on my end, please change the component to rhpxl and let me know what I
should be doing.
Can you attach the X log and config file from the broken configuration please?
Reporter: ping. Please attach the X log from a failed startup so I can see what
was going wrong.

Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
as i m not owning this hardware anymore, i m closing the bug
thanks for you help
