X Customization screen -- test button does not actually test X, whether

Please try again with Beta 3 - we've changed the X stuff around.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you still see the problem with beta 3.
Still true with roswell2; haven't tried rc2 yet
Does this chip use XFree3? If so, then there were some problems with testing X
with XFree3 due to not all the needed packages getting installed which should be
handled as of RC2
Both XFree86 3 and XFree86 4.1 support the chipset. However, RH defaults to X 3
for the card, and X 4.1 as shipped by RH will not work with the chipset (or at

testing works with RC2. In RC2, XFree86 3 works, while XFree86 4 does not.
Closing since it sounds like it no longer fails when testing.
