alse have tried other versions:
and non of them worked
I presume only on same notebook. On this notebook bug doesn't need to be reproduced, it is constant.
Steps to Reproduce:

2.startX (or Xorg)
failed to recognize VGA device therefore failure to start X
detect and configure VGA device and start X
I have tried using vesa driver which caused system freeze. I am using old laptop with Chips And Technologies VGA card. On it I have installed Fedora 11 LXDE remix. This forum is where I asked about this issue and was pointed to file a bug: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=228131
