I am experiencing various problems with a 945GME chipset, including video tearing and failure to automaticallyrecognize an appropriate monitor resolution. The current driver under Fedora 11 is xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.7.0-7.

What's up with that? The driver developers have already release 2.8.0 and 2.8.1. Why are these not making there way through the Fedora pipeline? Please wake up and give us these updates, which include bug fixes.

Since this bugzilla report was filed, there have been several major updates in various components of the Xorg system, which may have resolved this issue. Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade their system to the latest version of their packages. For packages from updates-testing repository you can use command

yum upgrade --enablerepo='*-updates-testing'

Alternatively, you can also try to test whether this bug is reproducible with the upcoming Fedora 12 distribution by downloading LiveMedia of F12 Beta available at http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/nightly-composes/ . By using that you get all the latest packages without need to install anything on your computer. For more information on using LiveMedia take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD .

Please, if you experience this problem on the up-to-date system, let us now in the comment for this bug, or whether the upgraded system works for you.

If you won't be able to reply in one month, I will have to close this bug as INSUFFICIENT_DATA. Thank you.
