Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.
Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.
Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug /var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.
We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.
Thanks in advance.
That's odd. I have a FireGL 3400 that uses the ids 71d2 and 71f2 and kernel modesetting is working reasonably well. There have been problems at times and I don't remember how things worked around the time of snapshot3. If you upgrade to at least the preview release, things should be usable. You can also get more recent updates from koji.
Reporter, if you pick the last build from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=95, does it help?
Dammit, it's tough to test fixes that affect boot when you're running from a live CD distro. :)
I'll try to set aside a partition to test this.

Sorry, I missed that again. But there is certainly newer LiveCD than Beta3 -- take a look at http://torrent.fedoraproject.org/ Does using that CD help?

Yeah, that would be lovely. But don't sweat over it too much -- we have plenty of bugs and bug reporters telling us how bad our X drivers are :) So if this bug will end in vain, we will certainly some others to help us to improve your situation.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
