I should mention that X has been working horribly on this system since f9.
X crashes about once per week in f9.  But in f10beta, X just doesn't work
at all during installation.  Here's another bug report for X on the same


As far as I know, there isn't a hardware problem, because it worked fine
in f8.

Is this bug the same as this?:


The end of the X.log looks similar... both have this:

(EE) intel(0): Failed to pin front buffer: Cannot allocate memory

Fatal server error:
Couldn't bind memory for BO front buffer
