Screenshot of bad font rendering
Description of problem:
I have normally upgraded my Fedora 10 with automatic update on 19-12-2008. When rebooted, the fonts get distorted. They change, when I change the size with ctrl+ or - in Firefox. Only system fonts get distorted, the fonts are presented in normall way in adobe acrobat documents.
I can get rid of it. Fonts are corrupted totally ...

One more symptom. All system fonts are generally distorted, but when I do refresh in Firefox, the page renders OK. When I move the page, the text that shows up (from the bottom of the page) has distrorted fonts. The part of the page, that is up (displayed first), stays the same - OK. When I hover over a link, the text of a link gets distorted.
I think this thread is relevant to my problems, but my computer doesn't have the same symptoms they have. But the problems with the radeon started after same upgrade.
yum upgrade --enablerepo=updates-testing xorg\*ati kernel\*
and if it doesn't help, install directly the latest build of xorg-x11-drv-ati from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=95 and kernel from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/packageinfo?packageID=8 (make sure in both cases you install F10 packages).
Does any of these packages help? What is the version you are using right now?
It works ;)
The fonts are back ...
It wasn't kernels fault ... when I installed the kernel, the font were still distorted.
This is what helped:
yum --nogpgcheck install xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.9.0-63.fc10.i386.rpm
Thank you for your help. I have also learned something.
