Does this still happen with latest rawhide, kernel/libdrm/-ati combination?
How can I make a livecd or usb stick with the newest versions of the kernel, xorg driver, server and other stuff ? I don't use fedora daily and booting the old radeon test day livecd won't work because I need to change the kernel.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
