Description Jean-François Rameau 2008-12-02 10:55:11 EST
X11 doesn't start anymore since my migration to FC10 (from scratch).

The graphical card is the following:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device (rev 03)

I tried both i810 and intel new driver but no way, I'm now running vesa driver.

Also, the installation has been done with text mode on, the graphical one being freeze after freeze.

I'll be happy to help.

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, if available) 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 (if you have one) 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.

First test: no xorg.conf file. What I see is gdm greeter but the screen is corrupted around the list of users. Click anywhere then freeze (no console with Ctrl-Alt-F*)

Second test: with intel driver. Same as above.

Could help someone else. Just add Option "AccelMethod" "XAA" to the device section.

Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "intel"
	Option	    "AccelMethod" "XAA"

Better than vesa !
