Re: F10/11 and Intel Integrated Graphics?

Can someone tell me what the state of development, if any, there is concerning
getting a fixed intel graphics driver (xorg-x11-drv-i810) either as an update
for F10 or fixed in time for F11 release.

I believe that having a new user install an up-to-date version of Fedora from a
DVD or CD set or LiveCD and end up with a blank screen and unresponsive
keyboard/mouse would be very disheartening at best and give a very bad press to
Fedora at worst.

I'd be interested to hear what the general view about this is? F10 is really
excellent when it works but this kind of problem is really serious and should
not be ignored.


Intel 82845G issues still aren't resolved.  This has been broken since
10/31/2008 on Rawhide, and is still broken.  I re-test whenever a new
F10 kernel, mesa, libdrm, or relevant xorg component comes out.

See:  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=469292
 "Xorg drv-i810 locks up unless NoAccel True"

I'd also like to find out when this is going to come together.
