Description of problem:
Running on a Dell D800 laptop with Geforce 4200Go, as I remember it FC3/FC4
detected the inbuilt nvidia ok, but required manual tweaking of modelines to
work properly with the 16:9 inbuilt LCD panel, FC5 detected the LCD panel
correctly out of the box, now with FC6T2+updates xorg has reverted to using the
VESA driver, which is much slower and also doesn't support the proper 16:9 LCD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-nv.i386 1.2.0-3.fc6 installed
xorg-x11-drv-vesa.i386 1.2.1-2 installed
xorg-x11-drv-vga.i386 4.1.0-2.1 installed
xorg-x11-server-Xorg.i386 1.1.1-25.fc6 installed
Attached xorg log file.
What does 'kudzu -p -c video' print?
Also, rpm -q kudzu
