It looks to me by your results that the older package is intact and that rpm thinks that the only difference during verification is the particular LibGLU.so.1.3 version. In other words, The new package is not actually present on the system, the older package is installed on the system. Both versions are in the rpm database though. To make upgrading your system easier whenever X is fixed and a new release comes out, removing the db entry for the newer version might be needed.

Interesting information about the script breakage. This is surely a problem.

This surely is a problem. For me too. Anyone figured out how a newby no-nothing could repair this? I've been trying to figure this out since Saturday. Do you think X.org will re-issue the update so it will fix itself if I just do "yum -update xorg-x11*"? Or is it going to be more complicated?

This would be an ideal solution. Changing your video driver from i810 to vesa and living with the lesser graphics quality is probably best for right now, since security is at risk with backdating.


Just to post on the security announcement on the xorg list, a link is below.

For my gripes to the xorg list, see the link below.



I just want to get my graphics interface back. I don't care who did what to who for ...
Why don't they test this stuff before they distribute it?
Everything was going great. I was showing off linux(FC3) to all my friends and now I'm trying to hide it. I tell 'em, I'm to busy right now to show it to you, come back later, like next week. I hope I can get this fixed before then. Somebody post a fix! Please. I was actually using linux more than windows xp for once and now this! Well, I know FC is a test bed. I probably should switch to a more managed distro. I don't think I can stomach this... I think I'm going to hurl ... mmm mmm ... I just did "yum install xorg-x11*", it dl'd some modules and installed them, but X was still crippled.
Is there any way to back up?
