X server startup log
Description of problem: I am using Fedora 10 on an Dell E4300 laptop.
Once the X server is started on the system, the text consoles are corrupted. The text streams across the top few scanlines of the screen and the backlight blinks on and off. Shutting down the X server doesn't fix the bad state; only a shutdown recovers the text console.
Update to the latest xorg-x11-drv-i810 from koji did not resolve the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After login, either Control-Alt-F2 or just shutdown; the text console display is unreadable.
lspci output and Xorg.0.log attached.

This bug is fixed in Fedora 11. (The X server driver being used is xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-7)
Closing per comment #2.
