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?


Try this link and download the rpms from redhat. A fix will be released soon.


For the response from the xorg-x11 list, see below link. There are links for bug reports included in this message.



I ran "yum update xorg*" as soon as I got home tonight and the update fixed the problem. I new these guys were working on it hard. They wanted me to be able to show off linux to my friends without embarrassment.

Thanks Xorg.

This is hard on my nerves, though.
