Description of problem:
The screen is rotated about 10 pixels to the right on a iMac G5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qa|fgrep xorg-x11-drv-nv
see xorg log
That effect only appears at maximum resolution, 1680x1050
Are you able to test the nouveau driver and see how things are for you there?
I'll be able to burn an F11 beta cd this week-end, as the machine is not where I am.
I found out there's no nvidia drivers for ppc, so I assumed I was already using the nouveau driver.
Also note that the computer has a 64bits cpu running a 32bits driver, I'll check whether installing the 64bit driver help.
BTW, is there a way to debug that video driver or at least to get verbose logs ?
Unless you specifically set up the nouveau driver in F10, you would have been using the nv driver. In F11 however, nouveau is the default.
Just the standard /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /var/log/messages are fine in this case.
Using the F11 ppc beta netinstall make the computer freeze during the boot sequence. The fan make a lot of noise.
The last lines shown are (copied from hand):
Console: colour dummy device 80x25
console handover: boot [udbg0]-> real [tty0]
It's not clear from that if it's nouveau at fault. Can you successfully boot with vesa as the graphics driver?
No, booting with boot option video=ofonly or video=vesa didn't change anything. The boot sequence hangs for a couple of minutes after those lasts lines I previously sent, then the computer reboot.

A default installation of rawhide this morning fixed the problem. Thanks for your help!

I'm recording them here for completeness, although they seem fine to me.
