same with recent kernel-2.6.27-0.352.rc7.git1.fc10.i686

same with recent kernel-2.6.27-0.354.rc7.git1.fc10.i686

I see some flashing (but black) n screen and some HD activity: that's all and I need an hard reboot

same with kernel-2.6.27-0.370.rc8.fc10.i686....I have not upgraded the  	xorg-x11-drv-i810 due to bug 461772.

Comment 5 Milos Jakubicek 2008-10-02 09:03:01 EDT
I've the same problem with Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, but it seems to be related to gdm, after switching to kdm it worked. See the attached log.

I'll add a me too for this bug. Machine is a eeePC 901 which has the atom chip plus the equivalent g945 graphics
Comment 8 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-10-02 14:26:54 EDT

comment 6 is just gnome-session not being installed but being a requirement of gdm.

There's a Requires: in place for it now, so it should get pulled in with updates.

Alternatively, yum install gnome-session should fix your issue.
Comment 9 antonio montagnani 2008-10-07 14:42:32 EDT
after latest updates, it works
