Description Jakub Hrozek 2007-10-08 07:42:27 EDT
Description of problem:
After default install of F7 on my R61, the fonts were unusually blurred. After 
some googling, I've come around a workaround that includes patching 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Well, you have to have the hardware. Mine is Intel X3100, details can be seen 
from the Xorg.log
1. install F7
2. open your eyes
3. eeek, blurred fonts
Actual results:
blurred fonts

Expected results:
sharp fonts

Additional info:
Frankly speaking, I have *no* idea about the nature of the patch. But it 
worked for me, so I'm attaching it in case it could be accepted and this 
problem solved.

This is probably the panel fitting bug.  The driver used to unconditionally 
set the panel fitting register, which would cause blurriness on some chips, 
even if the display was in its native mode.  Please retest with the latest 
bits and close since it should be fixed now.

Thanks, I'll try installing some recent version over the weekend and will 
reply here, then

I tried F8 Live CD and everything seems fine, closing. Thanks for poking me,
