having problems with X on Fedora 7, these are problems I did not have with FC6.

The big problem is X is locking up, the system continues to run and it accessable via the network, but a CTRL-ALT-BKspace does not restore the X session.

I found in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old the following:

<snip>
The motherboard is an Intel DG965RY with a built in video card lspci reports the VGA controller as: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82G965 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)

I believe one of the screen savers is triggering the bug as it just started happening after I loaded a bunch of screensavers and set it to randomly choose one, plus it only happens when the system brings up a screensaver.

In addition I have noticed that I can not play video's with mplayer which by default uses xv (?) unless I specify "-vo x11" in FC6 I didn't have this issue.

I'm guessing that F7 is using a modified or new version of the Intel graphics driver. Any way to either load the version from FC6 or specify the equivalent driver in Fedora 7?

I belive FC6 uses the i810 driver by default, while F7 uses the intel
driver by default.  Both are available in F7.  The intel driver is the
"new" driver.

How can I specify the older driver? even if it has less capabilities the capabilities are more than sufficient for my purposes.
