Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

This issue has been resolved in the Fedora 8 release. I don't know why this has 
come up now??
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2008-01-24 11:13:36 EST
Me neither, could we get that information please.
Comment 4 Mustafa Mehmed 2008-01-24 17:21:21 EST
I'm sorry but I don't have that information anymore. I did a fresh install of 
Fedora 8 over the top of previous installs and have not kept any info.
