Those are the rawhide versions of xorg, not F8. There's a lot of stuff going on
with xorg in rawhide. See the following message:


sis is known not to work at the moment.

Reporter, could you respond in let's say two weeks whether sis driver works
again? In the meantime, you probably have to use fbdev or vesa driver though.

Reporter, could you please reply to the previous question? If you won't reply in
one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
