Re: How about releasing an update of xorg-x11-drv-intel for Fedora 11

Enumerate the reasons, please. Which _specific_ bugs or features have been
improved elsewhere but not in F11? Why are they important to you and
others?

The graphics system in F11 is horribly broken for 3D, at least on Intel 845,
ATI 200 and ATI 300 chipsets. Certainly the Blender program will not run
on any of my computers (5 different graphics hardware versions).

I have been using drm/mesa/xf86-video-ati code from GIT to get around this,
but now the XServer is out of date so it has got difficult.
A new release of drm/mesa/xf86-video-ati/Xserver code for F11 based on the
new 1.7 XServer and 7.6 mesa would be very useful.

I understand that changing the Graphics system could break many
users systems, so maybe a build of all the necessary packages could be put
into the testing repository or perhaps a special graphics-testing repository
could be added. This would help get the graphics issues fixed prior to
F12's release ...

It would be good to have a Linux system that could actually to 3D with the
major applications by the end of 2009 !

Cheers
