Description of problem:
Upgrading to package xorg-x11-server-Xorg-188.8.131.525-1.20080701.fc9.x86_64 from
the updates-testing repository does not work on HP Compaq 8510w. After
upgrading Xorg will fail to start. The integrated graphics is NVidia Quadro. I
tried to get X working with the following servers: vesa, vga, nv, nouveau, and
fbdev. None of these would start. In order to remedy the problem I had to
roll-back to the previous version with rpm --oldpackage.
I also updated my HP Compaq dx5150 but did not have this problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: On some hardware
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F9 on HP Compaq 8510w laptop
2. Update to latest stable everything via yum
3. Update xorg-x11-server to 184.108.40.2065-1.20080701 from updates-testing
4. Restart Xorg
X will cycle through all various settings trying to start and the fail.

Missing /usr/lib64/dri/swrast_dri.so is from a package mesa-dri-drivers.
Indeed, this is not an issue if you fetch the latest mesa build via yum. I
would say this issue should can be closed but am also thinking that there should
be an rpm dependency between the two and there wasn't.
I believe this bug can be closed as fixed.
