gdm comes up, but any mouse movement causes X to die (touchpad, radeon
driver). Using startx ended up with white screen of death

Works for me (intel driver), but I have DRI disabled (for other reasons).

I'm curious about Xorg stability with my nVidia card running on nvidia-96xx closed driver (if supported, I hope so).

I'm just afraid of upgrade'ing to rawhide.

Any up-to-date LiveCD available? I'm curious about KDE4 on Fedora too :) .


You will have no 3d support on an nvidia card with rawhide. The best you get is software indirect rendering, which won't handle much beyond glxgears (compiz-fusion for instance won't work).

The nvidia drivers do not support the new Xorg ABI and will not for awhile still.
