Xorg.0.log when 'nomodeset' was NOT used
Description of problem:
A new "EE" complaint showed up in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
(EE) AIGLX error: Calling driver entry point failed(EE) AIGLX: reverting to software rendering
This error is absent if 'nomodeset' is used as a kernel argument
(although then instead I see 31 lines which say:
"(EE) RADEON(0): Unknown EDID version 0").
It is difficult to say how "new" is the error in question
as with this version of a driver and 2.6.27-0.312.rc5.git7.fc10
kernel it is the first time for a while when I am getting
anything but a black screen (unless possibly when 'nomodeset'
'nomodeset' apparently gives a better deal anyway.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Xorg.0.log after a boot with 'nomodeset'
Presumably updates to assorted mesa-7.2-0.1.fc10 packages
killed that error. With that, and 2.6.27-0.314.rc5.git9.fc10
kernel, I see now in log
(II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_MESA_copy_sub_buffer
(II) AIGLX: enabled GLX_SGI_swap_control and GLX_MESA_swap_control
(II) AIGLX: Loaded and initialized /usr/lib64/dri/r300_dri.so
The module above is from mesa-dri-drivers-7.2-0.1.fc10.x86_64.
