yarddog If anyone is having video problems on Intel (or other) video hardware still after the latest FC3/FC4 xorg updates, please run "yum install xorg-x11" again, and then "rpm -qa |grep xorg-x11" to ensure you really are using the latest update.

 

yarddog Then if your problems still persist, please read bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=168764 and review comment #13 for troubleshooting tips.
