Description Mark Senn 2010-05-08 04:41:45 EDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9.2.2) Gecko/20100323 Fedora/3.6.2-1.fc13 Firefox/3.6.2

Fonts, especially small fonts, are of poor quality

2. Small fonts are of crummy quality when installing operating system.
3. Small fonts are of crummy quality when running operating system.

As far as I'm concerned this bug report can be resolved.
I'm no longer having trouble.

I got a Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 card and Fedora 13 worked
out of the box with it.
