Xorg.0.log for Intel 845G and kernel-2.6.28-1.fc10

Description of problem:
After upgrading to kernel-2.6.28-1.fc10.i686, X refuses to start on an Intel Corporation 82845G/GL[Brookdale-G]/GE Chipset Integrated Graphics Device rev 3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot w/kernel 2.6.28-1.fc10
Actual results:
At the point of launching GDM, X stays in an endless loop of attempting to start the server but fails and starts over. No reaction to keyboard input. System needs to be reset.

Expected results:
X is launched successfully.

Additional info:
- last message in Xorg.0.log is

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

- last working kernel is
- there are some DRM related error messages in /var/log/messages,
  thus libdrm might need to be updated as well.

DRM related errors message in /var/log/messages

One instance of this error message is spawned to /var/log/messages for every failed attempt to start X.

Package kernel- fails identically.
Comment 4 Joachim Frieben 2009-01-31 03:39:35 EST
The latest 2.6.29 update candidate fails as earlier 2.6.28.x kernels. [+]
  2.6.29-0.6.rc3.f10.i686 [-]
Comment 5 Vedran Miletić 2009-09-06 05:01:56 EDT
How about current rawhide (Fedora 12 Snap1)?
Comment 6 Joachim Frieben 2009-09-06 10:16:41 EDT
Fedora 12 Snap1 is ok but that's 1 1/2 releases ahead of F10.
Comment 7 Vedran Miletić 2009-09-06 13:21:26 EDT
Then it might also work in Fedora 11.

Backport to Fedora 10 would require too much work (new X, new intel driver, etc.), so it isn't likely to happen.
