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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot w/kernel 2.6.28-1.fc10
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.
X is launched successfully.
- last message in Xorg.0.log is
"Fatal server error:
Couldn't bind memory for BO front buffer"
- last working kernel is 220.127.116.11-169.fc10.i686
- 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.
Can you try 18.104.22.168-17 ?

Package kernel-126.96.36.199-17.i686 fails identically.
The latest 2.6.29 update candidate fails as earlier 2.6.28.x kernels.
How about current rawhide (Fedora 12 Snap1)?
Fedora 12 Snap1 is ok but that's 1 1/2 releases ahead of F10.
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.
