Do you know if it happens with other video hardware?  As I know that the radeon
driver has been having a fair bit of work done (although I'm not sure if that
work has made it into the rawhide packages)
Comment 2 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2007-12-21 06:00:50 EST
I finally got things working back well enough in my local rawhide mirror to do
an install and the problem is gone.

[mirror.hiwaay.net seems to have dropped reflecting the full development repo,
they don't have the image directory or the RPM_GPG keys in their tree anymore.]

closing bug as worksforme
