Description of problem:
Graphical install fails for Fedora 10 Beta and newer, but worked with Fedora 10 Alpha. I am using Saphire X1650 graphics card.
I was able to install Fedora 10 Preview in text mode, but had to revert to the kernel (2.6.27-0.166.rc0.git8.fc10.i686) from Fedora 10 Alpha to get X to work.
If I boot with any newer kernel the screen goes black, and system freezes.
I am not using a Xorg.conf file

Xorg.0.log file with 2.6.27-0.166.rc0.git8.fc10.i686 kernel (X works)
please boot with drm.debug=1 and attach the dmesg.
if you can do it from -166 and a newer kernel that would be great.
Never had to do that before, could you provide more specific/detailed instructions for booting with drm.debug=1
Just after post up hit any key to bring up the boot list menu. Then hit "e" to edit the boot parameters and add drm.debug=1 to the end of those parameters and hit enter.
Thank you for your help.
