(--) PCI:*(0:0:2:0) 8086:2572:1028:01d5 Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller rev 2, Mem @ 0xe8000000/134217728, 0xfeb80000/524288, I/O @ 0x0000ed98/8, BIOS @ 0x????????/131072
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum upgrade to rawhide
Hah, yeah, we disabled gem on 8xx because it didn't work that well, but now the intel driver requires it.
kernel 2.6.31-0.56 and later have gem enabled for 8xx again. Which isn't to say it'll work, but it'll at least fail differently.
Today's update to 2.6.31-0.62.rc2.git4.fc12.i686.PAE has fixed
the problem. Emacs screen updates are slow, but at the screen
is not scrozzed like it was two updates ago.
